Greyhope Bay is gearing up to celebrate a significant milestone as the centre marks its first anniversary since opening at Torry Battery. The charity is hosting a weekend-long celebration, jam-packed with exciting activities and events for visitors of all ages.

Foodies will be delighted that Aberdam and The Seafood Bothy food trucks will be on-site, providing mouth-watering dishes for attendees to savour. In addition to delicious eats, live music from the Big Noise and Melting Pot will set the tone for the festivities, creating a lively and entertaining atmosphere.

Dedicated to expanding Greyhope Bay

Nature enthusiasts can look forward to rockpool ramble sessions and outdoor dolphin-watching scopes, providing an up-close and personal view of the local wildlife. For those more interested in history and culture, story tours of Torry Battery will also be available, highlighting the site’s rich past.

Visitors can also take the opportunity to learn more about the Greyhope Bay programme partners by visiting their information stands.

But that’s not all! Greyhope Bay has also set up an interactive stand for visitors to share their feedback and ideas regarding the development of Phase 2 of the project. The charity is dedicated to expanding the Greyhope Bay offer at Torry Battery and strengthening community ties with the coast. Monthly engagement events are also available for everyone to enjoy. It’s an opportunity to connect with others and learn more about the project.

Greyhope Bay birthday offers a moment to celebrate

Greyhope Bay Founder, Fiona McIntyre said about the weekend “since opening the Greyhope Bay Centre in April 2022 the huge positive response and high demand has been exciting and has also demonstrated a huge potential for growth as we continue to identify opportunities and needs of the community, and the historic monument within which we reside. Our first birthday offers us a moment to celebrate the achievements of the project, our wide community of supporters and together look forward to what is a bright future for the project”

The Greyhope Bay Centre, which boasts some of the best coastal views in Scotland, offers a sustainable coffee café produced using a solar, battery, and rainwater treatment technology. The café, housed in an off-grid container conversion, hosts events, including marine and heritage weekly talks, outdoor learning and rock pooling, school visits, accessible art classes, and well-being events. It truly is a hub for community engagement and cultural exchange.

The Perfect Spot for Dolphin Watching

But perhaps the most exciting feature of The Greyhope Bay Centre is its location, which provides the perfect spot for dolphin watching while enjoying the stunning coastal views set within the historic Torry Battery. It is widely regarded as the best place in the UK to spot dolphins, making it an essential destination for anyone looking to experience the beauty of Scotland’s coast.

Greyhope Bay’s first-anniversary celebration promises an unforgettable experience, offering something for everyone. Whether you’re a foodie, nature enthusiast, history buff, or just looking for a fun day out with family and friends, this birthday bash is for you.
