Why stay here ...

Gallowslaw is situated on the eastern side of the Scottish Borders with easy access from the A1. It is a short drive/cycle from the coast and a great stop off for those travelling further north in Scotland

Gallowslaw is a quiet and peaceful site with wonderful views of the surrounding farmland and sea to the east. Being in the heart of the countryside means you will be able to see roe deer, hares, buzzards and tawny owls from your van.

Gallowslaw is a large (¾ acre) spacious grass site, with plenty of room for awnings with no extra charge.A recent new hard core, all weather thoroughfare has been added for ease of access and egress.

Families are welcome, along with dogs. There are plenty of great dog walks in the area and a farm track runs along the front of the site with wonderful views and wildlife along it.

Gallowslaw is a great base for:

  • Coldingham (3 miles away) with its historic priory and beautiful coastline. In Coldingham you will find 2 pubs, a garage, shops, a post office/cafe as well as a really good fish and chip shop and a great beach which is protected by life guards in the summer. 
  • St Abbs (4 miles away) is a picturesque fishing village and nature reserve which is a haven for local sea birds and wildlife. There is great walking around the reserve and along the coastal foot paths. 
  • Historic houses; Paxton, Manderston and Floors Castle. 
  • Edinburgh; lots of our visitors spend at least one day in the city. If your visiting in August make sure to catch the Fringe Festival. 
  • Many more seaside towns such as Eyemouth, North Berwick, Berwick-Upon-Tweed and Dunbar- each
  • with great local beaches to visit. Local Shops in 1.5 Miles.

Great wee find

Gallows Law
Lovely site surrounded by countryside with perfect peace and quiet. Pitches are on a bit of a slope so you will need blocks of some kind but there are often some lying around. Would be great for a stop of if going north or south. There are no toilets/showers but water chemical waste and bins of course are all there. All in all great value for money and handy for touring the area.

Previous reviews still accurate. Quiet with good TV and mobile reception. Found easily. Blocks provided but take a suitable one for under jockey wheel. Stayed 4 nights and would stay again. Good value.

Love this CL!

Gallows Law
Basic but fantastic! We stayed here for 4 nights in August and wished it could be more as it was so peaceful (admittedly 2 of the nights we had the whole site to ourselves!). Great field in front of pitches for children to run around on. Well kept, though we never saw the owner, and everything we needed. Sloping (hence the funny photo) but there are levelling blocks should you need them. Our children (7, 5 and 4) enjoyed the museum's in eyemouth, st abbs head walk and coldington beach.

Perfect CL site

We stayed for a week at the end of June '19, and have no complaints at all. There are now 2 hardstandings with a hard driveway through the site, as opposed to the photos which show just a grass field, and a neatly stacked pile of levelling blocks by the information boards. The owner came round just once, and was very pleasant, seemed like a nice man, and wasn't intrusive, insisting we still used the honesty box, when we offered to pay him while he was with us. The approach road is fairly rough, but not very long, and low gear and a gentle attitude will get you through! We were sited on the hard standing at the top of the site, and had the field to ourselves for most of the week, and even when the other pitches filled up towards the end of our stay, there is enough room not to feel "invaded". There was no disturbance from the working farm road, which is the approach road, and we only had evidence of a lorry going in and out daily to a shed up the road because we have wildlife trap cameras set up, and saw it on there. There is a sign on the board with a map of the owners land which you are welcome to walk round, which we did, and plenty of wildlife to see. We easily filled our week staying here with visits to St Abbs Head, Banburgh, Berwick etc and have no reservations about giving the site a 5 Star rating. PS. The chemical toilet disposal point is a work of art! so don't complain about it. It's basic but it works.

Stayed for 6 days walking the coast path. This site met all our wishes for a basic quiet site with views and electrics. Very well maintained with short grass and a good hard core road up the field meaning no worries about getting on or off. 3G and tv reception good. No contact from site owner but available at end of phone if required. The rough access track is only 200 metres and fine if taken slowly. Would highly recommend this site.
