Why stay here ...

Edinburgh Club Site is an ideal location for your holiday getaway. Situated on the Firth of Forth, the caravan park provides easy access to Edinburgh, Europe's festival capital. You will be ideally located for the many attractions, both modern and historic, that this beautiful city has to offer.

Edinburgh is a friendly, cosmopolitan city. Edinburgh Club Site puts you within easy reach of some of its most famous landmarks. You can visit the castle which clings dramatically to a huge rock face (home to the Scottish Crown Jewels), walk down the Royal Mile to the Palace of Holyrood House (the Queen's official Scottish residence), stroll past the historic Scottish Parliament Building or enjoy the tranquil green expanse of Princes Street Gardens. The caravan site location also ensures that you're well placed for the famously fun summer festivals, seaside strolls, a round or two of golf, Edinburgh Zoo and an almost unlimited choice of restaurants, bars and other entertainment venues.

The site is only a stone’s throw away from the waterfront where campers can walk along the promenade of Cramond and, only a short drive away, visitors can enjoy the popular coastal suburb of Portobello with its pubs, restaurants and shops.

Recent stay

Excellent site. Staff pleasent. Shower facilitys very clean and tidy. Lots of hot water.Location for visiting Edinburgh was excellent. Bus stop 10 minutes away. Regular buses into the city. Only 4 pound for an all day ticket.this was Good value. The only dissapointment during the visit was the fish and chip van that was on site Friday. Very Expensive. £15.50 for 2 in my opinion greasy fish one chips, curry sauce that was like water and peas. Curry was all over the bag when we got back to the van and one of the peas were missing. I definatly would not recommend it. There is a toby inn15 mins walk away.

Good location

We have just spent a long weekend at the Edinburgh site, as we were attending the Rolling Stones concert on the Saturday night. We received a warm and detailed welcome, despite the "whole" world descending on reception at more or less the same time. Our pitch was adequate and the hedgerows separating give it a degree of privacy, which you don't always get. Washroom blocks were kept immaculate, bearing in mind that the site was full. The mini bus shuttle was a bonus which was reliable, good value and above all it pulled right on to site, which was important as the surrounding areas to the site, had seen better days. Of course there is a little disturbance from the proximity of Edinburgh airport, but did not bother us at all, because I am a bit of a plane "spotter" and my better half is hard of hearing. Yes overall a very enjoyable stay and we will be back, to visit this wonderful city. So unlike the Rolling Stones "we can get some satisfaction" from our stay. TY

This is my second visit to this site. The site is very well maintained and the wardens do an excellent job and very helpful and friendly. Given the previous reports on security I was apprehensive but gladly this proved unfounded. We made two trips into Edinburgh on the bus and found this to be an excellent way of travelling into the city. Just need the exact fare of £1.70 as the drivers don't give change. The 27 bus is the fastest for the city centre, taking approx 25 minutes. Due to road works the 16 service took approx 1hour. There are issues with the noise of traffic on the road alongside the site and the planes. But this is to be expected when you are so close to the city centre. The site was full and this presented a problem with having to queue for toilets and showers. I have never had to queue at ant other site for a shower at 8pm. The site needs to extend the toilets urgently. Overall we had a lovely stay and enjoyed both the walk to the sea front and the trips into the city. We most certainly will return

Not our cup of tea

Very well kept and presented site, as expected from CMC. Lots of international visitors. Nice walk along the waterside and nice cafe. Pitches seem enclosed due to hedging and there are no views other than other outfits. Having spent the previous ten days at Bunree we found it a bit claustrophobic. Planes overhead constantly can be an issue but go on the internet and track the flights where they are going - it doesnt seem as bad then. We were concerned about safety due to previous reviews and found ourselves worrying about leaving belongings in the van while we were out although to be fair we did not have an issue. Getting into the city centre by car (as i am disabled) was a nightmare and we gave up eventually. We got to the royal yacht brittannia ok. By far the best day out was to see the Kelies and ride on the Falkirk Wheel - awesome. North Berwick was a good day out as well. The Forth Bridges (all three of them) were a sight and South Queensferry is lovely. There didnt seem to be anywhere to eat at night close by other than a Toby carvery, either that or we just didnt look hard enough. A nice site for a city centre experience, especially if you are fit enough to use bikes or local buses.
