Glen Luce Lagoon is the ultimate flat water location! On mid to high tides a huge lagoon fills to create a massive expanse of knee deep flat water. When the lagoon drains this spot is also suitable for a South west through to north westerly. In this instance it is a long walk to the sea but is a tremendous spot with good ramps and flat water spots. Possible to kite surf into Stair Haven.
Westerly to Easterly
Look for signs to the Wigtownshire County Golf Club. Best access is by using the Glen Luce golf club car park. This is generally not a problem but please do respect the owners and users of the club. It is possible to get to the waters edge of the lagoon by a private track running alongside the Wigtownshire county golf club. Please be considerate of the users of the golf club and the land owner. The track is only suitable for vehicles with a reasonable ground clearance.
Usable in all tide states. Best at mid to high and on a flooding tide. If you go at low or an ebbing tide expect a long walk back.
Almost entirely sand when full. If going on a low tide there are rocks and cliffs if taking towards Stair Haven.
There is also a very large (20 foot) and obvious vertical wooden pole on the beach. Sand bars and shallows. There are large sections of the lagoon which are ankle deep. Windsurfers should be cautious of their fins and kiters should be cautious of ‘going big’ in certain areas.
