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.

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.

Excellent site with friendly wardens.

We have stayed on this site many times, usually two to three times per year and have always found the staff friendly and welcoming. The site is well maintained and toilet blocks kept clean and warm, which was great as our last stay was in October this year. The site is well situated for Edinburgh and the surrounding area, as documented by other reviewers. The aeroplane noise does not bother us as we live near an airport. The boy racers at weekends can disturb the peace, but no one has any control over them. Overall a great site, well worth visiting.

Agree with the 5 tick Reviews

Visited at the beginning of October for 3 nights. Great site for visiting Edinburgh. Site staff all very friendly and cheerful. Large site but does not feel like one. Pitches and grounds all very tidy and well maintained. Toilets water and waste facilities very clean and well maintained. Site peaceful yet with easy access to the city. We used the mini bus one day and the local bus service another, both are great. Will definitely visit again.
