    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).

Beautiful location, staff very helpful and facilities excellent.

This review is for Culzean Castle

Beautiful location, staff very helpful and facilities excellent. Wifi available at a price but only on one device at a time! Not great if you have kids/teens. Other camp sites now offering Free Wifi. Come on CCC make a change! If camping, the pitches next to the toilets/washup are on a slope which affected our sleep. Avoid these! Otherwise a very well run site mostly suitable for caravans and camper vans.

Generally very good ie location, toilet facilities etc.

This review is for Culzean Castle

Generally very good ie location, toilet facilities etc. However, our daughter was in a tent and was put at the bottom of a steep slope, not ideal. During our visit there were other pitches more suitable. On returning late at night there was no lighting on walking from the car park and the path from the toilets up the slope was unlit and dangerous; one of our party tripped over one of the speed bumps it was so dark. Also this path was very overgrown and unkempt with weeds along the side.
