Eoropie Dunes Park is situated in the north of the Isle of Lewis in the Western Isles of Scotland and forms part of the community-owned Galson Estate. Located on the edge of the village of Eoropie, the park borders the scenic sandy beach of Traigh Shandaigh, and is about one mile from the famous Butt of Lewis Lighthouse that was built in 1862 by David Stevenson and his brother Thomas Stevenson, father of the famous Scots author Robert Lewis Stevenson.
The play park is off the A857, about 27 miles from the island's main town of Stornoway. Parking facilities are available adjacent to the site, as well as refreshments at the nearby The Buttery at the Decca.
There are several cafes and shops in the area.
Public transport (buses) run regularly each day (excl Sunday) on the main Stornoway-Ness road (A857) and the B8013, which passes the park's entrance.
