Mossyard DG7 2ET
Moss yard is a private beach that is open to the public. There are fabulous views across the bay and lots of sandy coves to explore. There is a small sandy beach from the path opposite the entrance in the car park, however if you take the path adjacent to the entrance this takes you to a much bigger section. Fantastic place for the dogs, even lovely in the colder months, just remember to take a flask.
Small car park area with honesty box for £2 donation and farmer has kindly provided a toilet shed for visitors so you can spend the whole day there if you wish.
Follow the A75 towards Dumfries, continue for 14 miles and you will pass Auchenlarie Holiday Park on your right hand side. Carry on for another 0.5 miles and Mossyard is the next turning on your right. Continue down the farm road and follow the signs to the beach.
