Stay in the grounds of a fairytale Scottish castle on the South Ayrshire coast, with sunsets to die for.

Please be aware that, on 18th May 2016, there will be no electricity on site from 9am until 4pm. Please also note that the play area will be out of use between 16/05/16 and 25/05/16 due to a new play area being installed

Pitch in the grounds of the cliff top Culzean Castle Club campsite and you’ll be rewarded with stunning views across the Firth of Clyde to the islands of Arran and Ailsa Craig, and the Mull of Kintyre. Our campsite here is in an area rich with beautiful countryside and coastline, fantastic walking, stunning beaches and many interesting places to visit.

Our spacious, secure 90-pitch site welcomes all camping units and offers good facilities for campers including showers, toilets, washing up area and a children’s play area.

The National Trust for Scotland managed Castle and Country Park are a short walk away and includes five kilometres of coastline with sand dunes, caves, rock pools and sand and shingle beaches.

Fishermen can enjoy some fly fishing at Mochrum Loch close to the site. The 24 acre loch is stocked with brown, blue and rainbow trout.

Head north from thecamp site and you’ll come to the coastal town of Ayr with its many shops, bars and restaurants. Just before you reach Ayr, the Burns Heritage Park in Alloway is worth a detour.

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

This review is for Culzean Castle

Kenny and his team are doing a great job putting the final touches to the refurbishment of this site. The shower block still smells of fresh paint! Construction noise and timber harvesting during the day rather spoilt the karma of the scenery but that will be over soon. I was surprised that given the lack of a digital TV or satellite signal the club did not take the opportunity to install a cable facility during the expensive refurbishment. A word of caution to dog owners: we found no pubs or restaurants in Ayrshire that would allow a dog indoors where food was served or sold. We where told by a restaurant owner that it was a county regulation. Also beware of Deer Ticks if you go walking in the woods. #

Couldn't give top marks for facilities and cleanliness as winter refurbishment works had overrun because of poor weather and on first day of opening it was still a bit of a building site. However, manager couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful and away from the entrance it was fine. Once work is finished it will be first class. (Club also waived charges for first weekend.) Looking forward to going back soon and seeing what it is like.

This review is for Culzean Castle

We have visited Culzean a few times before, and were looking forward to seeing the new renovations - due to the bad weather these hadn't all been finished by the re-opening date but this aside the site still offered a lovely warm welcome from the staff and the new facilities are excellent, and we made good use of the parent and child room for showering our granddaughter in the mornings. The new road layout were an extremely welcome bonus to the site. We look forward to our next visit to seeing the rest of the improvements in operation The site is so close to so many National Trust venues there is plenty to do, we also visited Heads of Ayr farm with our Granddaughter which was a fun filled day. A huge Thank You to Kenny and his team at Culzean � we will see you again soon.
