Dhoon is a sandy beach approx. 350m long within Kirkcudbright Bay, and also known as Dun Mill Bay. The beach slopes gently into the water making it a great swimming beach although it all but disappears at high tide.
The beach has some interesting rocks, is backed by grass areas and surrounded by trees. At low tide you have some great swimming and some rocks to explore, you even get to see a shipwreck.
The wreck is of the schooner Monreith of Wigtown wrecked in the Kirkcudbright Bay on the 12th November 1900.
Car parking and picnic area.
We have no dog information for Dhoon beach.
You need to be careful if going out to the wreck as the beach turns from compact sand to mud flats.
