Catrine House: Fully serviced hardstanding and grass pitches (photo added by manager on 09/08/2022)

General

  • Peaceful rural site on 40 acres of farm and woods a mile from Catrine
  • Half an hour's drive from the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Ayr
  • Wildlife walks, firepits and Ayr river fishing on site

A peaceful spot with rural views all around, ripe for hours of nature walks and fishing, but with the added bonus of easy access directly off the A76 – what a winning combo.

Catrine House is a family-run campsite that's been operating here for more than 60 years. The Ayr river runs through the farm’s grounds and a river path runs along the site boundary, so bring your kit for a bit of fishing, or enlist some expert help from the owners if you need a little tuition in the skills. Lots of walks (including circular walks) also start from here, and maps are provided.

The vibe here may be decidedly rural, but you’re hardly cut off in the middle of nowhere: there’s an excellent café a mile away in Catrine, and a couple of food pubs within a few minutes’ drive. If you can’t be enticed away from your countryside idyll, you’re welcome to light up a firepit (provided; logs are sold on site too), or have dinner delivered to the site from the local Chinese, Indian or fish and chip shop.

Please note

Guests under the age of 18 are not allowed on site.

    The shower blocks and toilets totally spotless, the Host and Owner Wully is very accommodating and even helped with a few problems myself and my wife came across for our 1st time touring. We are that happy with Catrine house we have rebooked before we even left the campsite for 4 weeks time again. Lovely campers on site too all people very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend and will be back time and time again. Also it is Pet friendly and had our 4month old Pup Koda with us for her 1st wee holiday too and she loved it too

    Facilities. Showers in log cabin were perfect….clean and hot. Good brown waste facilities and rubbish disposal facilities. Good dog exercise field and wifi in cabin

    Disliked: 

    Pitch was slightly sloped so had an uncomfortable night slipping down the bed. Traffic noise was quite significant. Black flooring around brown waste facilities was VERY slippy in the rain.

Local attractions

Rabbie Burns fans will do well around this area: it’ll take you around half an hour to get to Ayr to visit the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum and the poet’s childhood home, now known as Burns Cottage. The 15th-century Brig o’ Doon (the setting for Tam o' Shanter) is a short trot from these attractions, and you can finish your day following in Burns’ footsteps with a pint at Poosie Nansies Inn, a couple of miles from the site.

Ayr’s also a great place for a seaside walk or beach paddle; for more activity, there’s a riding centre 20 minutes’ drive from Catrine House and a golf course just a couple of minutes away. Horsey types may well also want to drop in on the gentle giants at Blackstone Clydesdales, 10 minutes away.

For a slice of history, take a 20-minute ramble to the rock art site at Ballochmyle, or drive for 10 minutes to the 2,000-acre estate of Dumfries House, home to some gorgeous gardens and a splendid Chippendale collection.

Must see

  • Burns National Heritage Park (12.3 miles)
  • Scottish Maritime Museum (15.1 miles)
  • Culzean Castle & Country Park (19.9 miles)
