Superb Site 29/05/2018

    Superb and Impressive Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Park.
    Very Friendly Staff and Residents. The New Owner's of the site are simply amazing and have fantastic positive visions and very pro-active for future improvements.

    Less than 10 Minutes, walk to local Village ( Muirkirk ), with Pub, Small Supermarket, shops, etc.

    Perfect also if you are a Dog owner and the Site owners will welcome your beloved pet.

    Your dog can swim, 2 minutes away, River Ayr, exactly under the road bridge. Also perfect, non leash dog walking. Which is on site, next to stunning, Victorian planted estate tree area.
    Massive possibility for hill walking in the local area.

    Great Site with Plenty of Electric Hook-Ups, Large Toilet Area, Hot Showers. Even a well priced Bar. All At a Fantastic Price.

    Very Impressed.

    Muirkirk was a nice wee site, but it is a work in progress, they are making improvements to the site. the staff are very friendly and can't do enough for you, the toilets are clean and plenty of hot water, cant comment on the club house as it was closed while we were there. plenty of walks just next to site, great for dogs. and the town is a 5 min walk for your rations. we only stayed 2 nights.

Local attractions

Fill your boots by hiking one of the many interesting walks nearby: the 42 or so miles of River Ayr Way 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 and Edinburgh, 40 and 50 miles away.

Must see

  • New Lanark Visitor Centre (15.6 miles)
  • Burns National Heritage Park (23.1 miles)
  • Burrell Collection (23.2 miles)
