    Top sites 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.

Well positioned for castle visits and many pitches have great sea views.

Well positioned for castle visits and many pitches have great sea views. Facility block old and tired and site tracks need upgrading. Refurbishment promised this winter. Mornings were very chilly in late April and heating would have been welcome in the facility block. Site management excellent

This review is for Culzean Castle

Warm welcome on arrival from Ron & Tanya who were also very happy to talk to us throughout our stay. We had a pitch overlooking the sea with wonderful views. Perhaps the highlight of which were the stunning sunsets we had the pleasure of watching every night of our stay. Site is very close to the Castle itself which is situated in beautiful gardens and surroundings. Toilets etc., were spotlessly clean with plenty of hot water. This was our first visit to this site and we would hope it will not be our last. Would happily recommend people to visit.
