Sandhead is a village on the Rhinns of Galloway overlooking the broad expanse of Luce Bay, around seven miles south of Stranraer.
Sandhead was once used for landing lime and coal and today the main attraction is the beautiful sandy beach which stretches for three miles at low tide. The sea is safe for bathing and Sandhead is popular with caravanners who flock to the three caravan parks ringing the village.
The village has a general store, and there are opportunites for dining out too.
