Wonderful beach. Excellent, clean water and ideal for kayaking and swimming. Mossyard campsite is an excellent base for exploring Dumfries and Galloway

Others may be a wee bit better, but Mossyard has great access and easy car parking. Well worth the trip. And pay the fee, anyone thinking of treating the honesty box dishonestly. It's very cheap when you consider the upkeep required.

Driving down you wonder if you are going the right way as you do drive through a farm. However when you get there its the best beach in this area.
You must walk round the corner from the end of the first beach or use the path from the car park. There is everything you need for all ages here. Loads of shells, golden sand, interesting tideline (inc driftwood), rock pools, an island and a labrynth. Amazing for kids, adults alike. There is a portaloo or plenty of cover as needed! Who needs to go abroad?

You almost feel you are trspassing going down here, but when you get to the lovely little car park (don't forget to pay, its worth it) and walk through the dunes to the beach, it takes your breath away. A true treasure of a place
