Aboyne Sheepdog Trials 17th July 2016
Aboyne Sheepdog Trials takes place on the third Sunday in July. Competitors come from all over the UK and Ireland, and sometimes other countries.
The organisers are committed to keeping this ancient tradition alive in the face of modern farming methods which rely on quad bikes rather than dogs.
Aboyne Sheepdog Trials commences at 8.30 with a break for lunch. There should hopefully be a van serving hot food. The event takes place in a field adjacent to the River Dee at Potarch, and is sign posted on the day.
