    Top site 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.

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).

Our pitch was on quite a steep slope, enough that it proved problematic preventing the sleeping bags sliding off the camp beds. It rained every day for most of the day. This was no great problem other than the slope made it difficult to keep plates, mugs and jars on the table inside the tent. Site drainage was great though, no puddles at all.

This review is for Culzean Castle

Stayed here for one night on a stopover, traveling in a small campervan with an equally small awning. Convenient for the ferries from Largs, Troon and Ardossan. Thought I had booked a GWE pitch but was told I had booked a hardstanding. I do find the club's web booking system to be pretty hopeless if using a campervan and awning combination. In any event I was told on arrival that the site does not allow campervans on grass pitches, which had I known I would have booked in elsewhere. Our allotted pitch (and my thanks to the staff for offering a limited choice) was relatively small, and felt a bit out of the way, which suited us actually. The site itself is within the grounds of the NTS castle, and even though the castle was closed when we arrived we enjoyed a walk through the grounds in the early evening. The access is via a short steep section of road, but our old van coped easily, large caravans might struggle a little. The loos etc were, as always, immaculate. Would recommend to those who have no pitch preference and who want a convenient stopover.
