Boden Boo & Erskine Beach
As recommended by one of our lovely owners - this is a totally pawsome place for walkies. There are a number of woodland walks as well as a few trails to take you down to Erskine beach where your pup can take a swim. Be sure to pack a picnic as there are plenty of seats to rest while your pup makes friends with the other dogs on the beach.
Extending over an area of approximately 7 hectares, Dalmuir Park was originally a designed landscape. With an abundance of flowers, lots of open space as well as designated picnic areas this makes for a great dog walk especially in warmer months.
