Perched on the South Ayrshire coast, glamping at Culzean Castle is the perfect way to experience Scotland's great outdoors. Yet you needn't worry about braving the elements. We've put a luxury spin on things with a warm, spacious retreat that comes with solid furnishings and your own decked terrace. The campsite itself has hot showers, clean toilets, washing areas and a children's play area. So if you're not quite ready to 'rough it', a glamping holiday is the perfect introduction to Scotland's great outdoors.

Exploration is the name of the game here at Culzean Castle. After a comfortable slumber and a hearty breakfast on the terrace, it's time to get out there and enjoy every inch of this magical landscape. We recommend starting at Culzean Castle and Country Park, just a short walk from your tent. Here you can soak up fantastic views across the Firth of Clyde to the islands of Arran and Ailsa Craig, and the Mull of Kintyre. It's also where you'll find the 18th century castle perched high up on the cliff-tops with dramatic views over the water. Down at sea level there's no less than five kilometres of coastline to explore with sand dunes, caves, rock pools and pretty shingle beaches.

Ayrshire is renowned for its beautiful countryside and coastline, fantastic walking, stunning beaches and interesting places to visit. Ayr itself is a lovely coastal town with pretty pastel-coloured buildings, a charming sea front and a long sandy beach - perfect for a leisurely stroll.

Nearby, the Burns Heritage Park in Alloway is well worth a detour. Here you can visit the birthplace of Robert Burns - the famous Scottish poet, see a collection of his works and discover the historic landmarks where he set his greatest work. Or if you fancy a flutter, head out to Ayr Racecourse, which hosts many Flat and National Hunt meetings throughout the year.

Hop on a wildlife-spotting cruise or boat trip to explore the coast of Ayrshire and the isle of Arran, where you might spot seals, dolphins, peregrine falcons and even golden eagles. This beautiful region is home to a number of nature reserves including Ayr Gorge, Glenbuck Loch and Catrine Voes, where there's a good chance of sighting otters, kingfishers, great spotted woodpeckers and even ospreys.
