 Part of visit on Scotland tour

Very nice clean site, friendly informative wardens, close to the college and river, walk to river and along great for dogs and quite interesting, town center just over the river bridge (cannot comment as did not visit)

Ayr sandy beach nice and quiet due to time of year.

Convenient for Troon ferry (10 miles) to Arran, took a day trip a lot to see in one day. (56 miles round with a few detours)

Had a ride out to Largs as it was the Viking weekend difficult parking but worth the effort.

 Site is located close to the Ayr University and is of a standard you should expect of a Caravan & Motorhome Club Site. Pleasant & welcoming site wardens and the flower arrangements around the reception are very attractive. The tarmac at the gate entrance is rutted and uneven, care needed if cycling out.

Good Freeview signal and mobile reception, prepaid site WiFi available. Manic one-way road system around Ayr best avoided if going for a cycle ride. Pick up the local cycle path along the River Ayr and follow this into the town centre.

The NCR 7 crosses New Bridge (A719), turning left takes you to the seafront, right takes you through the port along some very rough roads, once out of the port area things improve.

Reviewer: Dartgirl81 23 reviews from this member

 This is a clean site, the facilities do need updating, but nothing will be done apparently as the lease is due to expire over the next year or so, so I guess they're waiting to see if it's renewed before they spend any money on the place, so fair enough.

As mentioned old showers etc but kept clean. 4 showers in the ladies, and quite a few washrooms. Only queued twice for a shower.

The site backs on to the university which was closed while we were there. About a 15/minute walk along the river into Ayr town centre, which I thought was really run down, and not very clean, lots of litter about. Beach was about a further 15 minute walk further on, lovely beach but the entire area needs some investment.

The site. Is like one giant car park hardly any grass, all tarmac and gravel.

We won't return.

 Excellent site all round. Toilets/washrooms always clean. Unfortunately due to and injury received by one our party, outside of the site, we had to leave early.

The wardens on the site at that time Yvonne @ Lawrence were the nicest people we could have wished to meet and the help they gave to angela (broken leg) and her husband was first class.

They were so helpful, generous of their time, that we plan to meet up with them again next year but under better circumstances.

Reviewer: Bodiddly 29 reviews from this member

 The site is easy to find and easy access, the pitches are large and flat and the site is well screened with trees and shrubs. The walk into Ayr along the river takes about 15 minutes and the beaches are another 10 minutes further on.

There is no dog walk, but the road to the site has large grassy areas and leads to a nice walk down through gardens to the river. The toilets and showers are very clean, but the showers could do with an update, the water flow is very poor and the heat control can be very erratic, there are only 4 and even in April there were queues in the mornings, yet there were 6 privacy cubicles all stood empty, surely they could convert some to showers?

The wardens were friendly and helpful with a good knowledge of the local area. We would certainly go back again due to the location. 


Date of Visit: June 2016 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: NMack 15 reviews from this member

 Never having used this site before we decided this time to take the caravan and picked Craigie as a location for visiting family. We really enjoyed our 4 nights at this lovely site which is deceptively peaceful, being within the town of Ayr.

Toilet block is very clean and the site in general is very well kept. The shop offers a selection of useful items. Water and bins all seem to be well situated and not a trek away. We didn't have a problem with TV reception in the area we pitched, which was not on the outside fence, but across the road.

Ayr itself has a beach, plenty of eating places and a variety of shops, but for something a little different, travel through to Prestwick for unusual shops. Culzean Castle and Burns Cottage are just two of the many options to visit in the surrounding area.

Would highly recommend a visit to Craigie Gardens. We will be back.

Reviewer: Leslied27 1 review from this member

 Spent October week here, excellent site all round. Just an advisory, surrounded by tall fully matured trees, and sight of Astra satellite limited to pitches in central area of site. For TV addicts be advised. Otherwise excellent site nice walks etc. Site was full in October week

Reviewer: Blueboy2 9 reviews from this member

 We stayed at Craggie Gardens in August for 3 nights. The site is well kept and the toilets and showers are kept clean. The wardens are very friendly and gave us advice on where to go and what to see in the area so we could make the most of our stay. They even told us where the best eating places where and where the dog friendly pubs were. It is walking distance to Ayr along the riverside path. The beach at Ayr is a golden sandy beach and there are play areas along the front for those with children. The National Trust Culzean Castle is a short drive away and is well worth a visit. We would definitely visit again.

Reviewer: Barbieri 1 review from this member

 Would definitely recommend this site, lovely walks along the river and within walking distance of Ayr which is a nice town with plenty of good shops to visit.

A short drive away is Rabbie Burns's cottage which is well worth a visit.

Ayr also has a beautiful beach with miles of lovely golden sand.

The site wardens are very friendly and really go the extra mile to be helpful to everyone.

There is a small play park for children, and the shower block and toilets are spotless.
