Alan Rogers Review

With wonderful views of the Firth of Clyde and over to the Isle of Arran from some pitches, this quiet Camping and Caravanning Club site is next door to Culzean Castle (pronounced Kullayne). Visitors can buy tickets to walk in the grounds (when open) with their 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 motorcaravans 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 18th-century, clifftop castle is built on the site of a former ancient castle and its armoury exhibition is superb. Besides the woodland walks, deer park and aviary, there are three miles of rocky shore and small sandy beaches. 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.


The toilet blocks, kept very clean, can be heated and include some washbasins in cubicles. Unit for disabled visitors has a WC, washbasin and shower – an excellent facility. Well equipped laundry. Small shop for basics opens for short periods morning and evening. Adventure playground. WiFi in some areas (charged).
