we try and go here whenever the weather is nice enough... west of scotland is not know for its sunny weather. Usually we go with family, kids and grandparents. Its always a good day out for everyone. we take a picnic and cook a barbecue. the kids love playing on the beach looking in the rock pool and there is also a small play area for the kids, however when the weather is very sunny the chute can get hot. there is also lovely walks from the beach and sometimes we take the kids balance bikes. Pleasant views. arrive early as the car park can get full quickly on nice days. However you could park across the road at the garden centre. would have given it 4 stars but the last time we were there all the porta loo's were locked, eventually we had to leave as we needed the toilet.
