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.

Over crowded

Gallows Law
We stayed here for 4 nights in June. The approach road/ farm track is very poor with large stones and ruts, which meant lurching from one to another. We were in pitch one at the top end of the site and in our opinion the best pitch. Whilst we were there five other caravans were pitched up with one being pitched on the grass area with a long cable running across the site. Pitch one had another cable running from the electric bollard, this went behind our caravan, over a fence and was connected to a camper van on land outside the site. 7 vans?? The chemical waste area was filthy, although there was a hose to rinse things down it had been left in the muck and no one seemed willing to get covered trying to use it. We didn’t see the owner at all and I understand that it is an unmanned site. Ok, but perhaps a check round and a clean up wouldn’t go amiss. We’re glad we weren’t pitched beside this area and felt sorry for the person who was. Good enough site but does need some looking at.

A good site

Gallows Law
A short distance from the A1, the final approach road to the site is quite rough. This site is entirely on a slope and we had to pitch in the one at the bottom facing the bin area with no views. It was cramped and there was no room for an awning or sunshade. We parked the car in front of the pitch. We didn’t stay long so it didn’t matter too much. There are a couple of water taps available. The owners responded promptly to an issue and resolved it effectively. It’s about 20 minutes to St Abbs and about same to Eyemouth where there are some good restaurants and the sale of fresh fish on the harbour front, such as D.R. Collin Fish.

Stunning views, lovely CL

Gallows Law
Our 4th stay at Bee Edge. Lovely views down to the sea. Fully serviced pitches make life so much easier. Our preferred stopover on our way North/South. WiFi also a bonus. We will be back again.

Well Laid Out Site

Gallows Law
This CL has been well laid out with lovely views. New planting will when mature screen the site without detracting from the views. The owner was happy for guests to walk the perimiters of his land but at the time of our visit crops were quite high so we didnt and instead walked our dog along the farm track which went for a long way. When we arrived we had the pick of all but one pitch so we were lucky to choose where we wanted to be. We never met the owner having paid in advance but it would have been nice if he had introduced himself. There were 2 things we felt needed attention: Firstly and most importantly the owner's bungalow was close but not within sight of the campsite so there was a security issue. Also, there were vehicles and tractors using the farm lane which was to be expected but we were bothered by the speed and resultant dust they were creating which was blowing all over the campsite covering the vans and outside.equipment. We would stay here again if it were possible to introduce some element of security.

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.
