What’s new for the 2017 season here at Sands of Luce?

Wednesday, December 14th, 2016

pizza at the lighthouse barWe can’t quite believe that 2016 is drawing to a close. It has been a fantastic year for us at Sands of Luce and we think a lot of you have enjoyed it too! A particular highlight for us has been the introduction of our brand new Lighthouse Bar and Kitchen. This has transformed the atmosphere of the park and we have really enjoyed the results, lovely coffee, breakfasts, pizzas and some quality live music. Whats not to like?!

Our activities have also proven to be very popular. Our favourite this year has to be the RSPB discovery workshops. Who knew we had so much fascinating nature right under our feet? These hands on workshops will be revamped for 2017 and are certainly something for the diary.

Following a busy season we usually like to put our feet up and enjoy some well earned rest. Unfortunately for us that is not the case this year! We and our ever dedicated team have been working hard to further raise the standard in the park. Read on bellow to find out what we have in store for 2017.



Rental holiday homes

All new Rental Holiday Homes

Sands of Luce are becoming renowned for offering the best standard rental holiday home fleet in Scotland. All our rental holiday homes surpass most parks platinum standard. For our 2017 season we have an exciting range of brand new luxury rental holiday homes from Swift and ABI. All are double glazed, centrally heated and have sun decks.

Don’t forget to book early, we expect our upgraded holiday homes to be very popular this year. What’s more we have a 10% discount running on all bookings made prior to January 1st! Book here



Beach Holidays Galloway & DumfriesAll new beachside holiday home development

We have been busy redeveloping what was our ‘Tent field’ to accommodate our new luxury rental holiday homes. This field has direct beach access and all rental holiday homes will have sea views! This is a very exciting development and we know our regulars are going to love it. Still very much a building site but please watch our Facebook page for updates in the new year.




campsite dumfries and gallowayAll new 5 star washroom and laundry facility

We are busily upgrading our wash rooms and laundry facilities to be of 5 star quality. We are confident we will have the finest washrooms and laundry facility in the area if not Scotland. This coupled with our beach side super touring pitches should really set us as one of Scotlands premier touring destinations. What’s more we are sticking with the same rates for 2017. Better get booking then! Click here to book.




wifi_tentAll new FREE park wide WiFi

One of the charms of Sands of Luce is our remote rural location. Perfect for relaxing and unwinding but not so good if you want some super fast broadband! We will never be able to get close to the super fast speeds of towns but we hope to make the most of what we have with our upgraded WiFi system. It is very high tech and benefits from two fibre connections. We are currently mid install so can not yet comment on its speeds. One of the benefits of our new system will be it will block all streaming and a high bandwidth activities. This we hope will result in a reliable complimentary web browsing service which should be greatly improved over our previous solution.  (Plus it is free!)


electricvelvetMore live Music

It turns out the new Lighthouse Bar works as a rather good live music venue. A 2016 highlight must have been our ‘Mini beer and Folk Festival’. We have plenty more mini festivals planned for 2017 and some great new bands. We have discovered some great bands over the 2016 and we have some really exciting new bands to add to the line up for 2017. One of our most exciting new acts has to be Electric Velvet. Check their live video here.

Get your dancing shoes on 2017 is going to be a great year for live music at Sands of Luce!
