    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.

Culzean Castle itself, is well worth a visit.

This review is for Culzean Castle

Culzean Castle itself, is well worth a visit. One annoying thing was the poor quality of the site wi-fi. This either didn't work at all, or was very slow or simply failed. When raising this problem with the site managers they just said "Oh yes, it does that"!

This review is for Culzean Castle

From the moment we arrived, we received a warm welcome from the lovely wardens who worked hard all weekend ensuring our stay was perfect. Their advice about dog walks around the castle grounds did just the trick. We spent hours exploring without the need to move off the site. Site was very neat and clean. Only 4 for facilities due to chilly shower room, but was told it was to be upgraded over the next winter. The views were superb especially with a beautiful evening sunset over Arran and Ailsa Craig. Will put it on the favourite list! Is there a warden fan club....we would follow them to their next destination, it makes such a difference to see smiling, welcoming faces. Thank you.
