Welcome to Balmedie Beach Wheelchairs



We are a free service run by volunteers at Balmedie Beach about 10 miles north of Aberdeen.  We have a variety of beach wheelchairs which can be hired free of charge by anyone with impaired mobility or any other disability that prevents them from enjoying the beach.
