Attraction Information

Looking for a great sandy dog friendly beach in South Scotland? Whitesands Bay is a great spot for a seaside side and to get some fresh sea air. 

The beach is usually quite quiet, so it’s a great spot to go for a peaceful and relaxing family walk. If you visit in low tide too, a series of rock pools can be found, so mini adventures will love peeking in and seeing how many creatures they can spot.


  • Long sandy beach 
  • Dogs allowed all year 
  • Great for going for a paddle

Opening hours

All year round
