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.

We would come here again

We stayed for two nights while touring. It is in a great position for walking to the shops and restaurants. The walk by the river is OK but unlit at night and dirty underfoot in places but we preferred to walk down the road/old road that was lit. A great place to stop over.

A hidden gem

First time at this site and first time back in the area since 1960 ! As a kid Butlins Ayr was the place to go, so my parents thought. The caravan site is what I would call in a secluded location but the have build a university around it ! First week in July was our visit and the weather was excellent. The site and facilities are well run and spotless. There is a nice walk along the river into Ayr. Ayr itself is like a lot of places these days, closed shops etc but it does cater for the tourist ie lots of eating and drinking places. The beach area has not changed much since my boyhood visit, still sand and sea. After doing loads of walk we took a taxi back to the site, £4 not bad. The next day we found the number 2 bus goes in the direction of the site, even cheaper, zero with our Scottish travel pass. We took a trip to Arran. As we both have senior rail card cards we did a 'Rail and Sail' Ayr to Brodick, cost £11.80, brilliant. A great day on Arran. Another day out is Culzean Castle. If you have kids take a picnic and chairs this is a DAY out. We will be definitely be returning but "the Sword of Damocles" hangs over the site, the university wants it for another car park. I do hope the suites at the Caravan and Motorhome Club are working for all they are worth to keep this site for its members. For this reason I understand why money has not been spent on upgrading the facilities and the entrance to the site. The wardens do a wonderful job and I highly recommend this site and the area to all.
