I love walking along the beach with my dog as I find it so relaxing! And looking over the water to Arran is stunning.

This is a great place for families to let off steam and also to relax and sunbathe on a sunny day. A large expanse of sand that is cleaned daily during the season

This beach is fabulous, clean and looked after, and more importantly dog friendly, and clean, no dog pooh anywhere.
