The red dot marks the skatepark, it's easy to find, right next to the football ground and school.

Buckie skatepark was designed by Andy Dobson and lives up to the standard of past parks designed by Andy, such as kemnay and tran-x.
The park has fast flowing lines with multiple obstacles to hit, it's fairly compact therefore at times quick thinking is needed to carve past any lurking human being.
