    Top sites for dogs

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

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.

This review is for Culzean Castle

Booked this a few days in advance when we saw the promising weather forecast. Due to the size of our tent, we booked a jumbo pitch and were given an open, spacious and sunny spot with views across to Arran. Our dog really enjoyed the many walks from the site (woodland and coastal) - you could spend the whole short break not using the car. Staff were very friendly, informative and looked after the site well. On one visit this has become a firm favourite.

This review is for Culzean Castle

Fair enough we did arrive in evening without a booking but surprised and saddened by level of disapproval demonstrated. Shown to a sloping grass pitch with dark warnings of how much rain had fallen not a good first experience as new members. Facilities, location etc all good apart from long walk to chemi-loo disposal. Surprised in morning to see many vacant hard standing pitches. Sadly, we left after one night because we felt uncomfortable and unwelcome.

This review is for Culzean Castle

Site is a lovely with views over the Ayrshire coast, Toilets are spotless but well out of date, The kids play area needs updating too as it is rather small for any more than a few children.The road surface is poor and the wardens have to continually fill in the potholes. Although the site has views over Arran the pitches which look over it has caravans on it which have no one at them. Surley these are premier pitches which should be available for visitors (possibly even for a small additional fee) and not kept for the members. We would love to come back but will wait until the site has been updated before we do.
