Perfect facilities as you would expect from a caravan and camping club site. Set in the stunning grounds of Scottish National Trust Culzean Castle grounds with views over to Arran and the sea. Can walk easily to the Castle and the beach. Child friendly and has a playground.

Almost at the end of a long tour of Scotland, this was a good site to finish at. Very busy over the bank holiday week end, but facilities were spotless throughout. Wardens Carole, Steve and their assistants make an excellent and professional team, and this, my second visit to the site was a real pleasure. Thank you to them all.

We like this site because of the spectacular views of the sunstets over the sea, so if you are lucky enough to get a sea view pitch you are in for a treat. Some of the pitches are very sloping so come prepared. Probably not that good for children as not much on site for them.

Spotlessly clean toilet/shower block, which has been upgraded since last year. There have also been more hardstanding pitches created and 2 glamping/ready erected tents are available.

Great to walk straight into the grounds of Culzean Castle (via the ticket office!), and on down the coast to Maidens, but nowhere else is within walking distance. Various cafes within the grounds of Culzean, but also a good little café in Maidens, which is a cheaper option. I highly recommend the Shanter Riding Stables at Maidens if you fancy a hack on the beach and through the grounds of Culzean.

Two night stay at well organised and located site. Had high expectations and feel this is one of the C&CCs better sites. Toilet block looks recently refurbished with plenty of hot showers however temperature cannot be regulated and control via annoying push button affair. Amazingly clean and plenty of room with 2 sink cubicles in addition to aT least 4 showers.

Culzean Castle too expensive for what it is. It took trip to brilliant Wemys Bay

Historic railway station and ferry to Bute with bikes. Rothesay exceeded expectations and roads quiet for biking. Don't think shops or pubs and restaurants too close but on this occasion not looking for any. Pitches adequate if not massive and nice to see tenters accommodated. Great sunsets and views to ArrN

An. Wardens helpful and not obstructive or rule crazy. Tarmac roads throughout and great kids play area and dog walk. Bizarrely refuse and recycling only at site entrance, tough if you are at the far end of the site.

This site has clearly had quite a lot of improvements - the toilet block looks brand new (more of that later), new tarmac and new looking turf laid in some sections.

The entrance will be awkward if you have a large caravan, downhill and on a tight-ish bend. Take care!

Our pitch was level though some weren't, the wifi worked well and the staff were pleasant. Some pitches have sea views across to Arran but there is no direct access to the coast. Some pitches are more sheltered by trees, others very open.

There is road noise which may bother some lighter sleepers.

Reception only sold absolute basics though the cafes at the castle will serve you everything from ice cream to full meals.

Girvan has Asda and there is a decent Co-op and chip shop on the A719 into Ayr. Electric Brae (there is a layby and explanation) is also on this road about 3 miles from the site.

As stated earlier the toilet block looks very new but isn't without its problems. High water and push taps with small sinks spray you rather than your hands with water. Likewise the floor angles in the ladies's showers are all wrong (rather like Electric Brae!) covering the changing area with water. The water was hot and plentiful.

Culzean Castle is amazing but expensive if you aren't a member. It is a 15 min walk downhill to the visitor centre but you can take cars over most of the estate.

Donald Trump's Turnberry golf course is almost beyond description. You drive through it on the main road. This is a man with little taste?

Ayr is Glasgow by the sea. Good beach, nice prom, funfair. But needs good weather.

Here because of the open air theatre one Saturday night in the adjacent Culzean country park (NTS), which we walked down to. Major improvements by CCC since our last visit. The toilet block has been refurbished and is barely recognisable inside; excellent showers, some modesty rooms with sinks, free hair dryers (but closed at an inconvenient time in the morning for cleaning, 10:30 to 12:00). Family room & Radar key room. The pot wash is under cover and screened from the elements, with one much lower sink for children or wheelchair users. New hardstands have been cut into the grassy bank that was too steep for tents. Spine road now Tarmac. New motorhome service point (though a small queue to use it blocks the way out). New play area. Still no mobile phone signal and you have to pay for WiFi, which many sites now include in the fee. It was £27 or so for hardstand & EHU, seemed a bit steep (and we're CCC 'senior' members). Relaxed Site Managers, listened to our wish list for the pitch (sunny, quiet, plus views) and gave us an ideal spot. There are 2 new ready-pitched tents too. NB earliest entry is now 1:00 pm.
