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.

Another great stay!

Just heading home after a very enjoyable 9 nights at Silverknowes, Edinburgh. We have been caravanning for 17 years and this is the site we have used most. The site is in a great location being close to the Firth of Forth with lovely walks along the shore. We like to walk to the picturesque village of Cramond and a walk to Cramond Island is a must when the tide allows. The city itself is within easy reach, either by a short walk for the city buses or by the privately operated mini bus to and from the site. The wardens are very pleasant and helpful and keep the site and its amenities immaculate.....Thank you all again for another great stay! 😊

Return journey

We stayed here earlier on in the year, with our dog and decided to return to do some walking up Arthur’s Seat and across the Forth Road Bridge. Unfortunately our dog hurt her foot so we did neither! The site was beautiful again well manicured and very clean. The wardens were very pleasant and helpful. Unfortunately this time, perhaps because it was summer there was a lot more local traffic noise. I’m not talking aircraft but cars, motorbikes etc. Speeding along the front road. This is not good for our nervous dog so wouldn’t return. But if we didn’t have her and wanted to sample the delights of Edinburgh we would definitely return. We had no criticism of the site unfortunately the road noise is not for our hound.

near perfect

We have just had 3 days staying at the Edinburgh site while visiting Edinburgh, It is an absolutely lovely site very well kept grounds and the facilities were immaculately clean I was well impressed, The staff and wardens were very friendly and helpful, especially Shaun who went above and beyond to help us out when a stud on our electric step sheared off he brought us a step to use during our stay, Thank's again Shaun. Only downside to the site is, it's on the flight path for the airport and it does sound loud when they go over early morning and evening time, and the nearest bus stop is a good 10-15 mins walk away, Edinburgh centre is approx 4.5 mile away, so the bus takes approx 45 mins to get you there. Apart from them little niggles the site itself is spot on and we will definitely be going again.

Perfect base for exploring Edinburgh with dogs

We stayed towards the end of August with our 2 greyhounds and 4 year old daughter. She loved the park and the dogs loved the woods and the nearby beach which is miles of glorious sand at low tide (you can even walk to the island if you are quick!). When we checked in the staff kindly told us that if we hurried into the centre we would catch the fireworks for the Fringe closing ceremony so we did and loved it. We wouldn’t have known had they not mentioned it. We took the site minibus in (with dogs) for £8 return which was a bargain as local buses would’ve been £5 and a fair walk to the bus stop. Definitely recommend the minibus. Small children & dogs are free. We had no noise as mentioned in other reviews, and no trouble with bike theft! We did use one of the lockers offered at checkin to be safe. Didn’t see anything suspicious and would definitely return to the site when in the area again.

Busy Edinburgh

Stayed at this site for the first two weeks of the fringe was a busy site but the wardens were always pleasant knowledgable and helpful. The site was tidy and clean, two toilet blocks so you avoid the wait whilst they are being cleaned. The site is close to some lovely walks and easy access into Edinburgh. Great time at the fridge to be recommended.
