It was nice that there wasn't too many arcade machines and the setting right on the beach was perfect for my two boys (5 and 3) who loved the many rock pools. It was also very close to other attractions - a lovely holiday overall!"

"I have already recommended Auchenlarie and left the brochure in my college staffroom.
