    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).

WiFi

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

Worth Noting

Some pitches are sloping and chocks will be required. Please note that mobile phone reception for some networks is poor. Steel awning pegs required for hardstandings. Please note only one car per unit is allowed on site. TV reception can be poor. In 2016 the site underwent a full winter refurbishment – all roads are now tarmac. There are new toilet facilities and the double row of hardstanding pitches are staggered allowing most pitches a lovely view of Arran and the sea.

Eat Local

Downhill Country Fayre in Turnberry has a licensed restaurant, coffee house and farm shop with its own butchery.

Had an amazing time at this site.

This review is for Culzean Castle

Had an amazing time at this site. Lovely, friendly staff who managed to pull off the magic of always being there to help when you needed them without being intrusive. The facilities are spotlessly clean and really handy for the pitches. There is everything you could really need - hot showers, dish washing facilities, spotlessly clean toilets (I know I've said that before but they really are amazingly clean!), drinking water within easy reach. The views were to die for and sunset was mind-blowingly lovely. We took our little boys who had never been camping before and they're hooked now :) The only thing I would have liked to see was a fire pit or a barbeque but that's just because we like that and even without it was a brilliant stay.

This review is for Culzean Castle

We stayed at the site during June 2018 and enjoyed our visit. The site was well kept with great facilities which were always clean (and warm). Particularly useful was the information room where there is information about local amenities and places to visit. Our intention was to stay for a full week but storm Hector got the better of us and we lost our tent. The staff on site could not have been more helpful, making repeated offers of help while we were rescuing and packing our equipment. Hope to return, it is a great site with great staff.
