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.

Nice Site

Just back from a 16 night stay at the site, we were there over Christmas & New Year. We have used the site before so knew how handy it was for walks along the promenade along the Firth of Forth, we walked along there a few times during our stay. On one review it was mentioned that the steps down the embankment were steep & slippy yes they are but there is a very sturdy hand rail to aid getting down, so we didn’t find the steps a problem. The site is very well maintained & the wardens are friendly & helpful, the facilities are looking a little tired but are nice & clean they would benefit from a refurbishment. On New Year’s Eve there were 4 power outages as the site was full so the on site electrics could not cope the demand, I think a bigger supply is needed. The site has green space to 3 sides & the road on the 4th side, I didn’t see it been the middle of an industrial estate yes there is one not to far away but not a problem with this. We didn’t find the air craft passing over an issue. We would use the site again.

Would return but !!!!

Stayed here for 3 nights taking advantage of the midweek offer price, We were given a warm welcome by very helpful and friendly staff. The site is undergoing work / maintenance which left some parts being closed off, didn't bother us.The only issues we found were noise from planes as on flight path from Edinburgh Airport,maybe not enough showers given its size, Dog walking area only open during certain times 9-5 i think it was? Certainly wouldn't feel safe going out of the site at night on my own. Location of site is on an industrial estate with litter strewn everywhere outside the site. Nice walk and views along the promenade sort of makes up for the small faults, Would return but certainly would not pay normal price far too expensive.

The Holy Grail!....Wheelchair accessible dog walking from site

Excellent site for beautiful dog walking on a hard tarmac surface but without the complication of vehicular traffic which makes it one of alarmingly few sites UK wide where dog walk can also accommodate wheelchairs. Really nasty wet and cold weather throughout stay but still enjoyed the walk (wrap up though!) Using site as a base for visiting family in Edinburgh so location near to the centre very good! Will definitely stay again probably in the summer(!?) And will use facilities for a couple of days over and above the visit to family just to enjoy the coastal walk with my Spaniel. Staff seemed genuinely interested in whether I had had an enjoyable visit as receptionist who had been on the phone when I was leaving quickly followed me out to check that I'd had a good visit.

Birthday trip

Had a lovely weekend at this site. Lovely and well kept grounds. Wardens were very helpful especially with bus time tables , it's very daunting not knowing where your going , but our warden was very helpful. There s a bus stop about 10 minute walk from the site which took us to all four destinations we wanted. We visited The Royal yatch which was great, The underground vaults and the zoo. All worth a visit. There is a lovely Italians called Tony Macaroni only about 1.5 miles away which was lovely. It was really cold when we were there so didnt go down to the beach , but looked really nice . Would definitely return to this site.

October family break

After recommendation from a friend we decided to give ECC site a visit while the kids were off school in October, we weren't disappointed. Warm friendly welcome on arrival and allowed to choose our own pitch, great start. Facilities are of a good standard and kept very clean, always having hot running water available regardless of the time of day or night. Site is exceptionally clean and wardens were regularly seen maintaining the area. Kids said the park was ok and it kept them busy for a while at times. Didn't appear to be huge by any means but if it keeps them quiet for a while it's done it's job I guess! Yes, there is some noise from planes but certainly nothing that kept us awake at night and nothing too obtrusive during the day. The site is well located for the riverside walk, even though there's some very steep and slippy stairs to be negotiated to get down to it, caution recommended. There's a Morrison's just along the road a bit (in a car) so no need to panic if you've forgotten the milk or bread etc. All in all everyone enjoyed our stay, there's loads to do in and around Edinburgh so you really shouldn't be stuck.
