    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.

We have dogs and found the country park which surrounds this site very pleasant.

This review is for Culzean Castle

We have dogs and found the country park which surrounds this site very pleasant. Fortunately we are NT members so didn't have to pay the entry fee, consider joining if you visit. Very few 'dog rules' in the country park which made our stay all the more enjoyable (despite poor weather for a couple of days). We only saw evidence that dog owners were being responsible, which goes to show that having signs repeating the rules over and over again are not what generates a responsible attitude. We certainly wish we could reproduce this attitude in other owners at some other locations (the path to the beach at Dunstan Hill springs to mind). Please be assured that dog owners also get frustrated by bad dog owners! We're glad to hear the bathrooms are to be refitted but to be honest they were clean and worked fine for our visit. Site staff were excellent, sharing information concerning a water supply problem the site had during our stay. Lots left to do for a future trip to this site!

We were made very welcome from the wardens and had a lovely site.

This review is for Culzean Castle

We were made very welcome from the wardens and had a lovely site. The views across to Arran were beautiful and managed to get in one fabulous sunset. The grass sites was a bit boggy but that could be due to the unusual amount of rain we experienced. The castle is a definite must on your visitor list and having National Trust membership certainly helped.
