    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).

Used this site on my tour of West Coast. Ayr is a car ride away as are all places to visit.

This review is for Culzean Castle

Used this site on my tour of West Coast. Ayr is a car ride away as are all places to visit. The Castle and Park are within walking distance and provided me and my dogs with great exercise. The Castle and grounds are interesting ( dogs not allowed in Castle or Walled Garden!)The NT centre in the park has a cafe and a rangers cafe where dogs are allowed. Fairly important when visiting with dogs when it's raining! Limited walking other than this so for us only useful as a stopover. To get anywhere else you need a car or be prepared to move your motor home. No bus service as such so no other way to get around the area. Nice spacious pitches with view of sea in distance.

The site is ideally situated to explore Culzean and the surrounding Ayrshire countryside.

This review is for Culzean Castle

The site is ideally situated to explore Culzean and the surrounding Ayrshire countryside. The views out to Arran(when weather permits) are stunning. The site itself, is clean and well maintained. The toilet blocks seem new and are cleaned to a high standard. The staff are very friendly and helpful. All in all, a great site. We will be back again.
