Took our twin boys to the beach as the beach at Southerness where we were staying was a bit muddy and rocky. Plenty of parking albeit £2. Toilets and shop nearby which was handy. No soap in toilets though. Not good when teaching kids about...More
Near Dalbeattie, easy to find and plenty parking (get a token from the shop before leaving) and clean toilets at the parking too.
Shop has a small range of items suited to the adjacent camping/caravan site, plenty ice creams and drinks plus papers, hot drinks...More
If you are ever in the Kippford area of Dumfries, then Sandyhills is well worth a visit. A wonderful place to take a scenic walk with an expanse of never ending sand that seems to go on forever. Fantastic for dogs and people alike, everyone...More

My thoughts were of...More
This is an exceptional walk - well sign posted and with seats for those that require them. A Mr Whippey may not be your favourite ice cream - but he was there and it was nice to smell the ozone whilst trying to stop the...More
This place lives up to its name. One of the best beaches I've seen. Beautiful clean sand and clear water. Limited parking in carpark for £2 daily charge just a short walk away. Suggest you take your own food and drink. There's a shop that...More
