Graveyard Walk 2019

Graveyard Walk

St Peters Cemetery

Sunday 28th July 2019

The tours around the Cemetery will be at 2pm, 2.30pm, 3pm and 3.30pm

Due to the popularity of these walks and the large number of people who turn up on the day, we need to ask people who wish to attend to please book in advance and choose which time they would prefer.

Each walk would ideally have around 15 people at a time, this ensures that everyone on the tour will be able to hear the information provided by the guide.

To book a place please ring the centre on 01779 239652, please do not leave message, (this option unavailable at the moment), use our Contact Form on our Website. Or visit us during Scottish Week at our Photographic Exhibition in Buchan House
