|What's The Ground Like?|
has two virtually identical stands that run down
each side of the ground. Both these all seated
stands are roughly of the same height and are
covered. The seating areas are raised above pitch
level, which means that supporters need to climb a
small set of stairs at the front of the stand to
access them. The West Stand has windshields at
either side of it. Both ends of the ground are open
and don't have any formal terracing.
|What Is It Like For Visiting Supporters?|
|David Gray informs me; 'The Balmoor Stadium is a friendly place where away fans are always made welcome. There is normally no segregation, so opposing fans are always able to mix with each other'. Fred McIntosh a visiting Forfar fan adds; 'On my last visit there was a form of segregation in force, as Forfar fans were directed to far side of one stand but it was not very strictly enforced. Food now includes a fish pie at £1.50, which was very good!'. However, remember to wrap up well, as the ground itself is quite exposed and there is normally a cold biting wind coming off the North Sea.|
|Where To Drink?|
|There is a Social Club located in the rear of the Main Stand, which welcomes away supporters. Otherwise there are plenty of bars to be found in the centre of town, which is a ten minute walk away.|
|How To Get There By Car & Where To Park|
The ground is located
just out of town on the A982 Peterhead to
|The nearest railway
station is in Aberdeen, which is some 32 miles away!
Therefore this ground has the record of being furthest
from a station than any other Professional League team
Iain Badger adds; 'Bus services 260/261/263 and the X60 all run to Peterhead Interchange from Aberdeen Union Square around every 30 minutes on Saturdays. Journey times vary from around 1 hour 5 minutes to 1 hour 26 minutes depending on time of day and which number bus you catch as some stop more frequently than others along the route. It is then a walk of just under a mile from Peterhead bus station to the ground and is fairly straight forward:
On leaving the Bus station head along Windmill Street, in the direction going away from the Harbour. Turn left onto King Street and then right onto the A982 (Queen Street). Continue along this road which becomes Balmoor Terrace and you will reach the stadium on the left hand side'. Visit the Stagecoach website for bus timetables.
