Alan Rogers Review

With wonderful views over the Firth of Clyde towards the Isle of Arran from some pitches, this quiet Camping and Caravanning Club site is next door to Culzean Castle (pronounced Kullayne). Surrounded by beautiful countryside and stunning coastline, it is fantastic for walking as well as many interesting places to visit. Visitors can buy tickets to walk in the castle grounds (when open) with 17 miles of footpaths. The campsite has 90 pitches, some level, others slightly sloping, and 60 have 10A electrical hook-ups. A few level pitches are suitable for motorhomes and 20 pitches have hardstanding. American-style motorhomes (more than 25 ft) must contact the site prior to arrival as large pitches are limited. The site also has 4 Safari tents available for hire.

N.B. Non-members are welcome and may join on site. Please speak to site staff for details and to check pitch availability before arrival.

The 18th-century, clifftop castle is built on the site of a former ancient castle and its armoury exhibition is superb. A full programme of events is staged at the castle over the season, including special children’s weeks, sheepdog trials, bands, battle re-enactments, ranger walks and craft fairs. Should you have your fill of the castle and its grounds, Maybole with shops, etc. is only four miles and the area has a wealth of places to visit. Besides woodland walks, a deer park and aviary, there are three miles of rocky shore and small sandy beaches to explore..
