Why stay here ...

Ayr Craigie Gardens Club Site is in the grounds of Craigie Estate with access close by to the River Ayr. It is within easy walking distance of the seaside town of Ayr with its long sandy beach and excellent shopping facilities. It is close to Ayr Racecourse and adjacent to the new campus for the University of the West of Scotland. There is a station nearby, offering easy access into the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh. You can enjoy a bus trip from Ayr to Ireland at a very reasonable cost.

The beautiful Ayrshire countryside provided the inspiration for the National Bard of Scotland, Robbie Burns - the Burns Heritage Trail and the Burns Heritage Centre at Alloway is a must for visitors to Ayr Craigie Gardens Club Site. Culzean Castle and Country Park is easily accessible from the site and the boasts a dramatic clifftop setting. Golf enthusiasts will be in their element as there are no less than 40 golf courses in the area, which is why Ayr is known as the 'Golf Coast'. The caravan park also offers fun for the kids at nearby Heads of Ayr Farm Park, where they can to see the animals and enjoy the rides. An excursion on the Waverley or Balmoral is not to be missed as these are the only sea going paddle steamers in the world and will let you view some memorably scenic landscapes. Ferry crossings can also be made further along the coast to the Island of Arran, known as Scotland in miniature.

Wonderful location. Well recommended

As motorhomers Ayr Craigie Gardens is a wonderful site and to be recommended. The location is ideal to either walk (15-20 minutes) or cycle (10 minutes) to most external facilities e.g. town or beach. And all along mainly safe cycle ways or public paths. Site is tranquil and well kept by an excellent site team. Warm welcome. Very helpful. Ayr appeared to us as visitors to be well looked after, clean and tidy. Residents may feel differently but to us it seemed so. Definitely on our return list.

Don't worry about the potholes - there are a few but you would hardly notice them

First time at a CMC site and after reading reviews we were a little apprehensive about pot holes and old toilets. Turned out to be completely unnecessary . Access is fine and couldn't complain about the toilets either. We had a very pleasant four day stay - walked in to Ayr in 15 mins and over the weekend we walked the Ayrshire Coastal Path both North and South. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would recommend the site which we found to be clean , easy to access and private

Love this site and location

We visit this site usually at least once every year. The location is perfect for us, especially having 2 dogs. Great walks by the riverside and into town to the beach. The site and facilities are well maintained by the wardens However this year I have noticed some members are totally disregarding the 5 mph speed limit and one way system especially when the wardens are off duty. It's such a shame as there are valid reasons for those restrictions. Lots of lovely beaches and county parks nearby with great choices of supermarkets and other shops. Definitely one of our very favourite sites and locations!

Super convenient location.

Very good welcome as usual. We walked into town along the river which is an easy 20 minute stroll. The beach is another 10 minutes or so. Ayr council were certainly trying hard with providing rubbish bins. I've never seen so many in one space! Public toilets in town cost 30p but were good quality and very clean. We wanted a quiet beach to visit with the dog so went down the coast to Crowburnfoot. Convenient car parking with toilet facilities.

Good clean and easy to get to site

Was at this site for three nights 30th March to 2nd April and enjoyed the time spent there, we paid a visit to Dumfries House where Prince Charles has a strong connection could spend quite a bit of time there. Then there is Burns Museum and meany other places to visit, The Wardens do a great job keeping the toilet block clean, and are very helpful. The entrance to the site has a few pot holes, but is on the councils book to get repaired shortly we shall be back again later for a longer visit.
