Our last Penguin Walk was a bit of an adventure! We found the “secret pub”, 18 penguins, 22 pieces of street art (including a few that weren’t part of the trail) and were probably the first people ever to nordic walk through the Overgate Centre in Dundee. Due to an incident at the V&A, the […]
Our Penguin & Pizza walk in the Ferry on Thursday 30 August was fab. Nine walkers attended the 9th Penguin walk and found another 7 penguins. The highlight of the walk was the pop-up Wild Fire Pizza van. What a nice treat after our 3 mile walk.
What a great turnout at last Thursday’s Penguin Walk! Nine of us walked around the Open/Close Art Trail discovering 20 pieces of street art plus 4 of Maggie’s penguins. It was an interesting walk, particularly as I had taken the wrong map with me. For more details about the art trail or to learn more […]

This walk was a lovely walk around Camperdown Park with 4 of us being immersed in nature. We managed to find 3 penguins, 2 deer and a grey squirrel. We were also blessed with a lovely double rainbow so it was well worth the drenching we got when we got to Pirate Penguin.
There were 5 of us on the Penguin walk from Broughty Ferry to Monifieth and back. The walk was almost 4 miles and we managed to locate 2 penguins – Strictly on Ice and Sunrise. Unfortunately, the latter penguin didn’t live up to its name and we had to endure some rain.
Five of us went hunting for Penguins around Caird Park and although we only managed to locate 1 penguin, it was well worth it!!
