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.

Great Site

Had a very enjoyable week here. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Superb base to explore Edinburgh. Only minor downside were the planes, but it makes for a shared experience with the locals.

Pre-Halloween Visit

Only my 2nd visit to this well-located site for visiting Edinburgh. It did not disappoint, the site was relatively quiet, ideal for my purpose for two nights to attend courses and workshops at a nearby hotel, whilst allowing the dogs to come along too and be close to me during the day for walkies from the Hotel car park. Sit is well run immaculate toilets and facilities. Great location on the Firth of Forth, near Crammionf Island with great coastal walks Full moon and clear sky made it spectacular the first evening.

Edinburgh trip - late September 2018

We'd never been to Edinburgh so were keen to explore all the sights and the Marine Drive site gave us very easy access to the City and surrounding area. It's an easy walk to the bus stop where a 10 minutely service takes you directly into the City Centre - don't even attempt to drive there the wardens said, and we could see exactly what they meant. It's a hop and skip to the Ring Road so you can get south of Edinburgh very easily - visit Rosslyn Chapel it's fascinating. Then just round the corner from the site you can see across the Estuary and out to sea with a lovely little beach area with cafe. Very helpful wardens. We needed to have the towing socket on the car replaced whilst we were there and we were given a print out of local businesses from which we found a mobile caravan electrician and arranged with the wardens for him to come on site to do the work. It's a very well kept site. There is some aircraft noise but we were out and about most of the time and it really didn't bother us at all. We didn't have any children with us so it's hard to judge if it's good for families but all seemed in line with other CMC sites. This is a great site for seeing Edinburgh

Autumn stop over

Had a really delightful stay at this site, loved the retro red pennants at the gate and was welcomed very very friendly and helpful wardens. Pitches were a good size, clean and level and the overall layout of the site was great. The site is close to the beach and sea font, a steady walk to town with friendly pubs that have sea views - all dog friendly. Only a short bus ride from the city centre, the wardens recommended a pub which served great food and beer! Been to some wonderful caravan club sites over the year, but this must now be our favourite. Can’t wait to visit again.

Late Autumn Break

This is a very well kept clean site with excellent wardens. The annual income it brings to the Edinburgh area is not appreciated by the City council as the nearest bus service is about 3/4 mile away via a rough path or a street which is used by a lot of boy racers both day and night both without street lighting. There is also a fair bit of aircraft noise especially when the flights are landing to the West. We have just spent 8 nights and had very good weather and had an excellent time in Edinburgh, but there was the usual few dog owners on site with 4 or five dogs on leads or not, who are too lazy to take them off site to do their business fouling other peoples pitches. The wardens are absolutely powerless to monitor such behavior. I sometimes feel like this club should have been named Caravan Motorhome and Dog Club. What really annoys me is that we have to pay for the Grandchildren and some one with four dogs pays no extra. Dog charges would be a very good revenue stream for the Club. .
