Perfect peace

For a quick escape from Edinburgh, I parked up at North Berwick promenade last night. Three other vans there, but when I returned a few hours later from walking along the beach, my little camper had been surrounded by massive motorhomes... some barely 2 feet apart, which can't be safe. I also couldn't see much of the view any more! So I phoned this CL because they're only 20 minutes away, and within half an hour was surrounded by trees and birdsong, with beautiful views. Very basic, but what do you expect for £5? I did go past the turnoff, but google maps is a useful thing. I guess the field might get soggy in rainy weather, but it was absolutely fine despite the torrential rain just a few days ago. Had a wonderful peaceful night and can't wait to go back.

grass needs cutting

The CL is not well signed and I drove past it twice as there was nothing to indicate which field was the CL.  In the end I called the owner who explained which field it is.  The grass was almost knee length (and very soggy).  The bin was full to the brim despite the CL being empty with no sign that another outfit has recently been there. It is a lovely area but I would choose another CL.

Soggy but picturesque.

We went in May 2012, just at the start of the really, really wet summer we had. Lovely scenery, some great walks from the site, peace and quiet guaranteed. Unfortunately the field turns into a bog in very wet weather, we were very fortunate to be able get off it unassisted, luckily we have a Landrover Defender and it did the job it was born to do. Even the toilet emptying point flooded because there was so much rain. Having said all that I would go back after a prolonged dry spell, it is in a lovely spot.
