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 Campsite. 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.

First class staff and spotless

Ayr Craigie Gardens Club Campsite
Stayed here for 3 nights and it was first class, spotless, the manager Mick and his staff could not do enough to help us out as we are new to motorhomeing. The site was great for everything from getting in and around Ayr as well as touring around. The site was spotlessly clean as were the grounds and all grass areas and flowers were well looked after. I big thank you to Mick and his team.

Our favourite site. Return every year!

Ayr Craigie Gardens Club Campsite
This is our favourite club site mostly because of the location. Ideal site for guests with dogs. Great walks just off site along both sides of the river without having to go near a road and it’s an easy walk to town and the beach. Also great country parks such as Roselle, Eglington and Dean Country Parks all with great dog walks and within short drives. The wardens welcome you like old friends and never pass by you without a greeting. They keep the on-site facilities spotless however the toilet and shower blocks are long overdue modernisation. The site grounds are also well tended by them. Their check in process is the best! They meet you at the barrier with their list of bookings then you return to the office once you’ve chosen your pitch to make payment and collect barrier key. The on-site security is great as entry and exit are both barrier controlled. Ayr itself is rather run down but most towns are nowadays but there’s still all the main shops to browse. The beach is spotless with lots of free parking on the beach access road. We visit this site every year and will definitely continue to do so.

Ideal for exploring in and around Ayre

Ayr Craigie Gardens Club Campsite
Stayed here in early April and cose to stay on pitch 72 which is at the far end of the site and found it to be a quiet spot. Pleasant site with just a short walk alongside the river into Ayre. We were almost put off staying here due to some reviews saying Ayre being run down and lots of homeless people on the streets. We found the opposite, no homeless people and the town was no more run down than many other town’s and cities around the country. Everyone we met was very friendly and Ayre itself had some fabulous architecture, monument’s and a wealth of history. We would be more than happy to visit again and explore more of the surrounding area.

Well run Site

Ayr Craigie Gardens Club Campsite
Nicest friendliest and down to earth wardens we have ever met. Lots of suggestions on places of interest, walks from site & where the dog friendly pubs are located. Nothing too much trouble for Mick, Christine, Phil & Jackie.
