General

  • Family-run park in the Ayrshire hills, 20 minutes' drive from beach
  • Galloway Forest walks and mountain biking within a 20-minute drive
  • Pub and shop within three minutes; free pick-up from public transport

‘twixt wooded hills and the sea... Robert Burns, aka the Ayrshire Bard, might have penned something like that about this fab Scottish site, in between the Galloway Forest Park and Girvan beach and 50 minutes' drive from the poet's birthplace at Alloway.

Barrhill Holiday Park is family-run and family-friendly, as you’ll notice from touches like the parent-baby bathroom and the laundry. They welcome dogs along with barbecues and firepits; they’re so welcoming they’ll pick you up from the bus-stop and the train station.

Surrounded though it is by the sort of hilly splendour that inspired the great Burns, the site is a three-minute drive from the village of Barrhill, its much-loved local pub with grub and its local store.

For more serious stocking up, along with safe sandy beaches and views across to the Isle of Arran, Girvan is a 20-minute drive away. You’ll often spot seals bobbing up and down in the harbour and if you fancy some adventure on the ocean waves, take a boat trip out to Ailsa Craig, home to gannets and seals, ruined forts and lighthouses.

Local attractions

You’ll never run short of outdoor larks out here, a 20-minute drive from the hiking trails of the Galloway Forest and the 7stanes mountain biking centre at Glentrool. Head to Loch Trool (40 minutes) for trails up southern Scotland’s highest peak, the Merrick; 50 minutes away there’s further walks along with fishing aplenty at Clatteringshaws Loch.

For outdoor thrills of a more organised kind, Adventure Carrick (half an hour) appeals with archery and bushcraft, kayaking and gorge walking, mountain biking and guided coast-to-summit walks. For simply speeding through the fine surrounds, opt for the zipwires, Segways and grass sledging on offer at Laggan Outdoor (45 minutes).

If you fancy a spot of historical splendour, a 40-minute drive gets you to Culzean Castle, where some 40-odd buildings and follies, including the clifftop topper with its oval staircase sit among a wider landscape of beaches, deer parks, woodlands and adventure playgrounds. Robert Burns pilgrims make for Alloway (50 minutes) for the birthplace museum and the two-hour walking trail weaving the natural beauty of the village with the Bard's life and works.

For those less impressed by poetry, Cream o’ Galloway an hour away competes with farm-based frolics, including dairy tours, rides and playgrounds and the sampling of much locally-fashioned cheese and ice cream.

Must see

  • Culzean Castle & Country Park (16.6 miles)
  • Burns National Heritage Park (22.5 miles)
