Bikers Haven: Breakfast time

General

  • Motorcycle-only campsite with Firth of Clyde views in Ayrshire
  • A 10-minute drive to Culzean Castle; Galloway Forest Park 35 minutes
  • Basic facilities only; shops, restaurants and beach 15 minutes’ walk

Bikers Haven campsite is what it says on the tin – a campsite for motorcycles only, no cars allowed. The simple grass pitches are on a working farm near Girvan in Ayrshire, offering panoramic views over the Firth of Clyde towards the Isle of Arran.

It’s a relaxed, friendly sort of place too, and you can hang out over breakfast as long as you’d like in the morning. No early starts are necessary here.

This is a compact and cosy site with basic facilities including toilets, wash basins and fresh drinking water – there’s no electricity so bring a torch from home for getting around after dark.

A firepit is available on request if you’d like to grill up a barbecue feast, and you can stock up at Maidens village shop (five minutes drive or 15 minutes’ walk), which sells groceries, alcohol (best leave the bike behind) and takeaway food. No desire to cook? No problem – just slope off to one of the two popular village bistros.

Maidens has its own sandy beach (five minutes’ drive), and the majestic Culzean Castle (10 minutes’ drive) is accessible from the north end of the beach.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

This park has no on-site shower facilities.

Please note that the toilet facilities are unisex.

Guests under the age of 15 are not allowed on site.

  • Liked: 

    Peaceful and relaxed atmosphere with friendly site owners.
    Flat pitch with fantastic views over to Arran. Very little drama with midges which is a huge plus. Fire pit available.
    Facilities basic but perfectly adequate.
    Excellent base for exploring Ayrshire and Galloway coasts.
    The wee shop in Maidens is packed with everything you needed but forgot. Also serves up great mug of tea and bacon roll.
    Highly recommended, will be back.

Basic biker camping that doesn't disappoint06/11/2022

  • Liked: 

    This campsite is meant to be a biker-only, basic campsite and it is just that. The pitch was clean and level. The views were stunning, the host was friendly, helpful, and had lots of knowledge of the local area. The location was near to lots of local tourist spots and had good access to many great roads for riding on. Would very much like to return here!

    Disliked: 

    The only problem with the site is that I had to leave.
