Drumboy Glamping: Stream alongside the site

General

  • Peaceful dog-friendly site surrounded by the Ayrshire countryside
  • A 25-minute drive from Glasgow and 35 minutes from Ayr and Lynn Falls
  • Cycling routes and fishing nearby; barbecues allowed; food shop nearby

From the sandy beaches and narrow wynds of Ayr to hunting down waterfalls or cycling around rural towns, fall into the peaceful pace of the Ayrshire countryside at Drumboy Glamping. With views over the Whitelee Windfarm and the fields all around, this dog-friendly site is also 25 minutes’ drive from Glasgow City Centre and its museums and galleries or idle rows down the river Clyde.

Bring your bicycle along for the ride… follow the cycling route into Glasgow (expect the journey to take around an hour and 20 minutes), pedal to the local fisheries (two minutes’ cycle) or through the pleasant routes around the windfarm (a 10-minute cycle to get there)

In the village of Eaglesham (35 minutes’ cycle or 10 minutes' drive), stop for a bite to eat in several eateries, including a pub, café and pizza restaurant. And if you’re in need of some snacks or you'd like to pick up some bits and bobs for a barbecue or campfire back on the site, there are a couple of food shops (or a larger supermarket, 15 minutes’ drive away from the site).

Facilities on the site are quite basic and include a shower and portable toilets. Simply unwind, always knowing that you are under five minutes’ drive away from the M77 motorway when you want to go further afield.

Please note

At least one of the party members must be aged 25 or over.

Group bookings of 5 or more adults are not permitted (couples and immediate family members excepted).

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

    Disliked: 

    Cleanliness, no hand-washing facilities, one shower/toilet for up to 30-odd people, noise of M77, no deep cleaning between guests, no bin emptying or cleaning of shared facilities, pre-erected tents too expensive. Misleading calling it Glamping.

From the manager...

Thanks for your feedback. You are right that one shower and toilet wouldn't be enough for 30 odd people, which is why we never have that many on-site. On your stay, for example, there were 16 people.

There is a cold water tap, which I accept may not be ideal for hand washing, so we have hand sanitiser posted around the site. There is also a hot shower.

There are two bins on site. Both were emptied before your arrival and today at noon. Neither were anywhere near full at either time.

The pre-erected tents are clearly priced prior to booking. I'm not sure why, if you thought it was too expensive you still booked?

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I appreciate it.

    The site is only 1/2 mile from the M77 and the noise from the traffic is constant day and night.
    The toilet facilities are a joke. One toilet and one shower in a field does not make a camping especially in Scotland where it is cold and wet.
    The toilet looks impossible to keep up to the standards of hygiene that we expect during the covid epidemic.
    The owners should go and visit other campings to see what is usually provided.
    Glamping this is not..it is a rip off.

From the manager...

We did expect this review. There were problems from the outset with the camper showing up a day early for their booking to an, already full site, and blaming Pitchup for the error. We did our best to accommodate.

She then proceeded to put up 3 tents, stretching the limit of the pitch, but still we accommodated her.

We lock the gate for security at night with a combination lock and the combination in the welcome pack. This camper called us at 5.30am complaining that she couldn't get out.

The toilet is advertised as a compost toilet and it's a totally off-grid site. It is cleaned multiple times every day.

Throughout her one night stay she was incredibly rude and demanding. We are not a holiday park, nor do we intend it to have perfectly manicured lawns. To those who buy into our ethos (and you can see from the other reviews) we are as close to wild camping as most people want to get and offer excellent value for money.

Directions

Local attractions

Peel back the years and have a look into the history of Culzean Castle (50 minutes' drive), a clifftop castle with the beach and woods below. Look at the jewels in the Robert Adams crown and play in the sand, the country park or the playgrounds.

Ayr (35 minutes) itself has a good portion of its own history. A royal burgh, the wynds date back to the 1200s, making it a great place to grab lunch in an old pub, as long as you’re not too preoccupied boating or relaxing down at the beach.

Nicknamed ‘Burns country’, learn a little about the poet Robert Burns' life in Alloway at the Burns Cottage (35 minutes) and the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum (35 minutes). Follow the circular Burns’ Trail around Alloway to see the woodlands and parks that inspired him.

Hiking on your plan? There are great hikes all around, including a waterfall trail at Lynn Falls (35 minutes) and lengthy paths around the Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park (an hour and five minutes). Here, you can go kayaking, canoeing or sailing on the lakes too.

Must see

  • Burrell Collection (8.8 miles)
  • Paisley Abbey (9.8 miles)
  • House for an Art Lover (10.3 miles)
