Mossyard Beach, Castle Douglas


Tonight, I am reporting on the holiday location of Mossyard Beach near Auchenlarie Holiday Park, about 5 miles SW of Gatehouse of Fleet in Galloway, southern Scotland.

Hopefully, the images speak for themselves.

I came across this pleasant spot by chance when looking for suitable landscapes to photograph during a drive along the A75. 

Clearly, there is a good expanse of sandy beaches combined with the placid water conditions of Wigtown Bay which in turn is part of the Solway Firth, a border between England and Scotland. 

This is a popular holiday destination albeit on a modest scale which looks very inviting, especially for paddle boards and the like. A quiet spot with no commercial razzamatazz. May return next year.


The publication, Visitors’ Guide to Scotland extends to some 800 pages.This book is heavily illustrated and contains a wealth of information. The ISBN is 978-1-9161332-0-4. Also available via Kindle.
