Set in pastoral splendour alongside the River Ayr, this all-weather park has friendly new owners and accommodates tents, caravans, trailer tents and motorhomes on both hardstanding and grassy pitches.
Electric hook-ups grace many of the grass pitches at Muirkirk Caravan Site, there’s chemical disposal, plus cosy loos and showers (including disabled facilities), and a four-acre field can be made available for rally groups. Bar snacks and bevvies are on offer in the licensed club, which opens weekends and bank holidays, and often lays on live bands or other entertainment, too.
Local commerces, including a Co-op, chippie and Chinese takeaway, are a short walk away in the village of Muirkirk, which also has a large children’s playground.
Fill your boots by hiking one of the many interesting walks nearby: the 67km River Ayr Walk follows the banks of the waterway which passes the park; for a shorter ramble, Twa Brigs takes in two historic crossing points, a Bronze Age hut and a fab picnic spot; or for a challenge, scale all 1,944 feet of Cairntable.
Golfers can tee off at the nine-hole Muirkirk Golf Club, anglers can chance their arm fishing some brown trout out of Glenbuck Loch, or on the upper stretches of the River Ayr (permits available locally), and petrolheads may be able to take in a rally stage or some motor tests at the East Ayrshire racing track.
Muirkirk is only 15 miles from the sea, and also in reach of the city lights and cultural attractions of Glasgow (40 miles away) and Edinburgh (50 miles distant).
