    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.

Fabulous location overlooking Arran and the bay.

This review is for Culzean Castle

Fabulous location overlooking Arran and the bay. Culzean castle itself and activities for all ages and types of family. Close to Turnberry, Prestwick and Troon championship golf courses, Burns interests, Ayr and a lot more. My third time there for Golf tournaments, and have booked again for next year despite it being 470 miles from home - worth every drop of diesel. Amenities are 1st class and Tanya & Rob's smiles are to die for.

Lovely site, excellent facilities, all we could ask for.

This review is for Culzean Castle

Lovely site, excellent facilities, all we could ask for. As National Trust members we didn't have to pay for access to the castle itself, which was really interesting, but the grounds are accessible from the campsite anyway. They include lovely gardens and cafe and shop, and a separate great 2nd-hand bookshop. This was a good day out without having to move our campervan one inch.
