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

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

Sandyhills is a lovely and very extensive beach (when the tide is out). Easy parking. Great for walkers and dog walkers. Beach is clean. There is a little shop but this was closed when we visited. I presume it will open at Easter for the...More

Stumbled on Sandyhills many years ago, a spectacular place especially when the tide is out, we regularly visit the area and always make a point of visiting. You can easily kill a hour walking along the beach itself or take a longer walk to Kippford...More

Staying at the local campsite you can walk around the coast and explore the caves (take a torch even in daylight). The beach goes on forever when the tide is out (be careful very soft gloopy sinking sand) if you venture out(we didn't). On walking...More

Staying at Barnsoul and decided to visit Sandyhills beach. Very nice beach, loads of parking, once you figure out where to go, head for the barriers and get a token to get back out from the wee shop. Nice relaxing, clean beach. Great for walkers,...More

Visited today with my dog Archie - he had a great time but I was disappointed after the tourist office highly recommending - a very small beach of a 10 minute walk, hard and muddy sand, also pretty dirty with rubbish. My thoughts were of...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
