Great welcome and helpful staff

Ayr Craigie Gardens Club Campsite
We stayed on this site for two nights whilst travelling south after three weeks touring Scotland. We arrived later than expected but received a very warm welcome which was much appreciated at the end of a long day. The next day our gas supply failed but we were soon pointed in the direction of a local motor home dealership where the problem was resolved. The site itself is perfectly located with a lovely riverside walk into Ayr town centre which we very much enjoyed. The warmth of the welcome and the help we received with the gas supply problem meant that we left on a high and will definitely come back to this site.

First Visit

Ayr Craigie Gardens Club Campsite
This part of Scotland was new to us. As we have a motorhome we like sites where you can leave the van on site and explore by foot or by bus and this site fits that bill. It has a lovely wooded surroundings which belies the fact that you are in an urban environment. As for facilities I think the toilet block is overdue for a refurbishment. Perfectly clean of course as you would expect but old fashioned. I particularly disliked the level of lighting and a small amount of investment it could be improved with the use of LED lights. Good to see an open grill motorhome waste point but surely the positioning at the very end of the layby could be better? We walked into the town a couple of times and also out to the seashore. We only discovered there were instructions on a short cut into town the second time! Ayr has a pretty good shopping centre and there are a couple of larger supermarkets nearby. You could take the train to Glasgow from Ayr as the station is not too far from the site.
