Alan Rogers Review of The Walled Garden & Caravan Park
The Walled Garden Caravan and Camping Park is set in the unspoilt beauty of the River Girvan valley, which is in Carrick, Ayrshire. Surrounded by beautiful countryside the site is only 9 miles from the coast. Whether you want to explore local attractions or just relax and unwind in the site’s tranquil setting, this could be the place for you. Ayr (14 miles) offers great shopping, a beach/play park, Ayr Racecourse, and lots more. You will be spoilt for choice when eating out, with a range of food to tempt all tastes. For lovers of the outdoors there are walking trails and cycle tracks – the site is 3 miles from the National Cycle Network. Wildlife around the site includes otters, deer, kingfishers and squirrels. The site has 80 hard standing pitches most with electric hook up. Lodge available to rent.
Stargazers will appreciate the ‘dark sky’ above The Walled Garden site and only 15 miles away is the world’s first large public use observatory within a gold tier Dark Sky Park at Craigengillan Estate, Dalmellington. Its location, on the edge of the Galloway Forest Dark Sky Park, set up in 2009 by Forestry Commission Scotland, means that it enjoys some of the darkest skies in the world; the park itself being one of only ten in the world to be recognised by the International Dark-sky Association. Countless stars, the Milky Way, shooting stars, planets, comets and the Northern Lights are all visible from the area. The new observatory will provide a spectacular opportunity to view and appreciate the night sky through state-of-the art telescopes and imaging equipment.
