Camping info

The camping event will be held in Eglinton Park Kilwinning, and can be reached from the A78 , it has bus connections at the Park entrance and railway stations ~ 2 miles away



There are two camping pitches on the site , one with hard-standing suitable for caravans and motor homes , and a rally -field suitable for tents

We will be installing 2 portable shower blocks to augment the existing facilities and installing 2 "silenced" diesels for the week.

In addition to the day room which will be available to us , we will have the use of the racket hall from Wed. , where a bar will be operational from 7:00 - 11 :00 p.m.

There are no restrictions on visitors, and no visitor charges ,so come along anytime.

Eglington Park is a spacious park which attracts dog walkers; horse riders; and cyclists ; there is also coarse fishing available .Additionally the "Tournament cafe " is open daily serving hot food and coffee. Also we'll be bringing in caterers to provide hot food for any one who wishes.

For Families , there is an enormous play -park ( adjacent to the camp site ) offering hours of fun for the wee and big weans .
This is the only area of the park where dogs aren't permitted .There are no restrictions anywhere else , all you are expected to do is behave responsibly .
Many of the events planned for the week are centered around Eglinton, so you won't have far to travel.
