Aboyne Sheepdog Trials July 2015 date unknown

 

Aboyne Sheepdog Trials

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 Trial usually commences at 9.30 with a break for lunch. There should 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.
