    Top site for dogs

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

p>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).

This review is for Culzean Castle

The site was lovely, facilities were clean and tidy and a great place for evening walks round the grounds of the castle. Entrance to site is a little steep and could be awkward if a caravan is leaving the site at the same time as another arriving, we had a pitch with great views over the fields to the see and the Isle of Arran beyond. Would definitely stay again.

So it seems by previous comments that this site has had a lot of money invested in making it what it is today. Well levelled pitches and we were on 'grass electric'. Fantastic toilet block and laundry/washing up facilities. Good water points and apparently good chemical toilet waste points. If you are a National Trust member then the Castle is well worth it... In fact if you are not a member Culzean is worth the investment. Access to the beaches and a huge amount of gardens, the deer park and the lamas the coffee shops yes shops not shop... Easily accessible from the campsite by foot or car. Will come back here for sure;-) If you are planning to bring your dog please make sure you are upto date with tick treatment. With deer and sheep in the near surroundings you are very likely to pick up one or two. We can recommend 'Robertson & Orr' vets in Maybole (we forgot to bring our tick remover - thankfully we were up to date on treatment so no trouble at all)??

This review is for Culzean Castle

Arrived and offered a pitch on the top level looking straight out of front window at the sea and Isle of Arran. Weather was great and the sunsets to die for. Everyone was outside with their cameras on every evening that we stayed on site. Pleasant walk down to Culzean Castle and the beaches. Enjoyed our visit in the castle and the grounds are lovely. Also visited the Robert Burns museum and cottage, nearby. Visited Ayr but not impressed. Unfortunately, washing machines not working and as this was the start of a 4 week holiday we were hoping to wash before moving on
