A huge surf resort is coming to a 60-acre country park just under an hour’s drive from Glasgow. As a result, the new establishment will become “Europe’s biggest inland surfing destination”, attracting surfers from all over the country, and, possibly, from around the continent. Lost Shore Surf Resort is set to open in September 2024, changing Scottish tourism to even more adventurous heights.
Lost Shore Surf Resort is located in Newbridge, around six miles away from Edinburgh Airport. The resort boasts a 160-metre-long inland wave pool bigger than three football fields, wooden lodges for a luxurious stay, glamping pods, a spa, restaurants and shops. Basically, you will never need to leave the place!
As well as being the biggest inland surfing resort in Europe, the designers of the pool, Wavegarden, claim it is “the most advanced on the planet”. The wave pool can produce up to 1000 waves per hour “with a simple push of a button”, as well as boasts 52 software-driven modules. This means surfers can ride the waves for up to 22 seconds on 20 different kinds of waves. WHAT!
Andy Hadden, founder of Lost Shore Surf Resort, said: “It is so incredibly exciting for us to share these new images. Bringing the world’s first inland surfing resort to Scotland is such a huge addition to the world-class tourism that we already have.”
“To celebrate our new website, we are offering amazing value on our vouchers, allowing you to be one of the first to enjoy the resort at a fantastic discount. Get together with friends or start planning that family holiday, buying your experiences now at the best price they will ever be.”
Marc Crothall MBE, Chief Executive of the Scottish Tourism Alliance, said: “This spectacular resort is going to be a real game changer for Scottish tourism. Not only will this attract people from all over the UK, but from right across the world.”
“To have an asset like this just 10 minutes from Edinburgh Airport and on the doorstep of an already world-famous tourism destination is fantastic. These new pictures show what an incredible place this will be. I cannot wait to see it open in September.”
