    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

Unfortunately, my stop was only for one night but I had the most brilliant pitch with amazing views across to Arran and watch the sunset with a appropriate glass of wine. The toilets, washing up, water stations and emptying facilities were spotlessly clean and well designed. One tiny negative was the large rubbish bins on entry to site were overflowing. My compliments to the staff and stewards who were polite informative doing great work

We stayed here for three nights. Beautiful situation and easy access to the Castle and beach. Very friendly welcome. Unfortunately, one of the days was spoilt as there were noisy roadworks on the site. Otherwise very peaceful.

Within the grounds of Culzean castle . Amazing site and very friendly . Will suit most people and safe for children. Tv reception is very poor though, and no phone signal . Lots of walks and only 10 minutes from Turnberry and about 15 minutes to the coastal town of Girvan . I only stay an hour away and will use this site often . Can't recommend it enough !
