Guide dog event at Glamis Castle

On SATURDAY, October 13, Guide Dogs staff will be at Glamis Castle from 10am to 4pm, encouraging people to try sighted guiding walks, blindfold walks with dogs and short handle walks, and interactive tasks with simulation spectacles.

The aim is to help more people understand what issues blind and partially sighted people have to overcome on a daily basis to enjoy the same freedom of movement as everyone else

The event is part of Guide Dog week, which runs from October 6 to October 14.
