View to Isle of Arran
View to Isle of Arran

Set amid Ayrshire’s gorgeous rolling hills, we have magnificent views. There’s the spectacular sunset over the Isle of Arran, for starters. As our whole park slopes gently down towards the beach, there are lovely views over the Firth of Clyde from most spots here. And we’ve got a personality to match our looks – with big fun on offer at two show venues, a pool complex with flumes and slides, roller discos, crazy golf, climbing wall and a multi-level soft play area. And that’s just the indoor fun.



  • Take a swan boat out on our seaside lake or go rock pooling on the shingle beach
  • We have amazing views to the Isle of Arran and the sunsets are just spectacular
  • Our indoor sports complex Airspace, has everything from roller discos to a climbing wall
  • Play our own 9-hole par 3 golf course or one of the bigger courses nearby
  • Enjoy a meal with a sea view in our recently refurbished bar and restaurant, The Brigs of Ayr
  • This is Robbie Burns country, so there’s a wealth of cultural attractions nearby
  • Next door you can see a variety of animals or try the fun activities at the Heads of Ayr Farm Park


From its entrance Craig Tara slopes down towards the beach. Most of our holiday homes are set on the flat coastal plain. However some are on terraces on the sloping area. Or if sleeping under the stars is more your thing, why not bring your own tourer or motorhome?

Thinking of making a group booking? Well, booking more than one holiday home with us qualifies you as a group. So, if you’re organising a group holiday for your friends, family, club or team our dedicated team are here to help.
