Great value for money and a very well kept site. The touring area was will kept and clean, the toilet blocks were clean if not a bit small for the site, I can only imagine that in the summer it would be very busy.

The complex was clean. The bar area was nice and again clean. The amusement area was clean but very cold. Prices for alcohol and soft drinks very expensive which is a shame as I think we would have spent more time in the place. We went swimming on the Saturday, nice pool, clean but the changing areas were very cold.

Having looked on the web site this site gets very expensive during the children's holidays which is a shame as I think it would be nice to go then.

Booked up for another weekend in May so let's hope it is a nice weekend and they have sorted out the cold areas :)

Site on a slight slope, so you need to pick your space carefully.

Facilities good, although I will admit I do feel like I am treated like a second rate citizen as a camper, when we are only trusted to have showers that have a 'timed press button'. They were a bit too hot for my young children so it annoys me that you can't be trusted to adjust the temp(I have found this on several sites though). They ran out of toilet paper a lot, and toilets were rather wet. They were never closed, so they were not just used by tourers, shame really.

There is definitely animosity between owners and campers, in fact some were really rather rude, so avoid camping anywhere near them!

There is a cashpoint on site (charges 1. 75) and shop is well stocked. They will also freeze icepacks for you. No EHU is a bit daft considering the quality of all the other facilities.

Good entertainment, kids well catered for.

Restaurant was very slow service, but food was good quality.

We will return, but only if we can avoid owners!

Well arrived Friday to be told not on our requested pitch even though we requested it as we have a German Shepherd and long caravan that we didn't want near the football pitch. Instead we were in the middle where everyone just walks through even at 12midnight on way home from bar.

Toilets security number given however door was open all weekend so used by kids from statics as well as tourers and campers, they insist on cleaning them at 9 am when everyone is using them, have to say reasonably clean on this visit.

Son age 9 loves the astro pitch and was not seen all weekend.

There is a bit of a owners versus tourers/campers attitude on this site, witnessed more than once which is ironic as inlaws own a static on Sundrum.

The meal on the Friday was ok however Saturdays meal was a disaster and mother in law said they had the same issue the week before.

Daughter age 11 bought chips from on site chip shop and brought them into the club ready to go home an attendant shouted at her saying takeaway food not allowed after saying we were finishing our drinks and going another member of staff approached and shouted at us again. This was the same attitude we got from staff all weekend.

Maybe these sites aren't for us if you like haven go for it.

Just returned from Sundrum Castle after 3 days camping 8th July, with wife and nearly 4yr old son. We had a great time, quick check in,

Pitching area just round the corner, literally seconds drive from reception, we drove to the car park at the top of the pitch area as it was closer to where we wanted the tent pitched,

There is a football area just at the bottom of the tent area and the ball went astray many a time hitting the cars on a few occasions.

The pitching area can be a bit slope here and there but other than that it was fine, we used the Hi Gear Voyager 6 and the tent area looked like a Hi Gear convention.

The camp site has a very cosy feel to it all the areas of interest ie utility block, pool, entertainment areas and the children's play area/crazy golf is directly opposite the camping area, our son loved it, as did all the kids and its at the side of the restaurant so you get peace to eat the great food, while the wee ones are in and out

Don't let that worry you as we had no problems with noise from the entertainment area, as the cabaret/disco area is on the farthest point from the camping area,

The utility block was clean and tidy, men's toilet/shower area was constantly clean, showers were lovely and warm just takes a few pushes of the button to get the heat through, and pretty powerful.

Wife mentioned the ladies area a little wet, but due to users not closing shower doors properly also not a lot of tissue paper in the toilet cubicle no such problems in the gents,

Dish washing area has 2 sinks so pick your times but you can see from tent area if anyone is in washing up through the Windows.

We are looking at going back this weekend for our sons 4th birthday as the children's entertainment is excellent.

We thought it a little pricey for no EHU, be aware there is no cash machine on site, not even the the ones that charge you and you can only switch if its over a tenner and they don't do cash back, cash machine is under 10 min drive, just a minor grumble, we will be back.

Stayed for one night at the end of July 2011. Staff were very helpful with directions to the site and very polite and informative at reception.

We took full advantage of the swimming pool, which was very quiet and very clean. It is very well managed and they only allow a set number in the pool at any one time for safety.

On site is a well-stocked shop, swimming pool, hot food take away and bar. Plenty of space on the tent field and very close to toilet block and entertainment.

It was just under 32 for two adults in any size tent. Site did go quiet at around 11 o'clock however was a bit noisy before this, so not great for adults with small children.

Usually go in the tent however decided to hire a static due to poor weather. Site and static very clean. Staff helpful and friendly. Tourist information could have been better.

Found out places to go by using internet. Good ice skating and swimming at magnun centre at irvince about 30 mins away. Downloaded voucher off internet and got 2 for 1 for skating at a very good size rink. Visited the garage at kilmarnock.

My teenage boys went karting there on a indoor track,a little too fast for my liking but they enjoyed it and at 19 pounds for 62 laps each not bad value. They also do bowling at the garage.

A bit disappointed with culzean castle it was more like a stateley home than a castle, however the grounds were very nice. Went to a little cove called maidens beach which was very pleasant.

Thought ayr a little run down but enjoyed the scenery at galloway around loch ken area
