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.

Excellent campsite

Visited during the Edinburgh Fringe during a really bust period. Could not fault the site or the wonderful staff, nothing too much bother very informative and helpful. Must mention the Pick up and drop off Bus driver Graham, Wonderful person very knowledgeable and very helpful. Great guy. We have used this site quite a lot and just love it, could be quieter as near as a busy road but apart from that give it 5 stars all the time.

Beautiful well kept and immaculately clean site, lovely friendly staff but not for us

We had been touring the Scottish highlands and had booked a 3 night stay to end our Scottish adventure and break up part of the journey back to Essex. We only stayed the one night and checked out the following morning, this site really wasn't for us, although it must be one of the best kept and clean sites we have ever been too, the staff are amazing, very friendly and helpful, our decision not stay is not a reflection on them but purely our decision to leave for a quieter location. We have a 12 year old son who still comes camping with us and he loves nothing more than to go out and explore on his bike, we felt we couldn't let him do this because of the warning we received upon checking in,to ensure we kept bikes locked inside if at all possible and very definitely locked at all times. We then read that the dog walk to the shore was locked from 8.00pm until the morning, which also made us feel uneasy about being broken into or having belongings stolen. Plane noise, we was woken up at 5.45am to the noise of planes coming into land at Edinburgh airport, we live near Stansted and regularly drive into London, but we was on holiday and had been so spoilt with the peace and tranquility of the highlands for the past 10 days, we therefore found this to be intolerable and too much of a shock. The satellite would not work on our pitch due to the tall trees

Very good site

Just had three days here a beautiful site well matured and staffed by very friendly and helpful staff just a short walk from the beach. the city centre is only ten pound taxi ride away, only thing to watch out for is the planes on final approach to the airport can be a little annoying but not the end of the world and will not stop us from going again, well worth a visit

Back again for several days

We have just revisited the site again and there were plusses and minuses this time. The site has nearly 150 pitches and is divided in two areas to the east and west of the entrance, both areas having a toilet block. Whilst these are kept very clean, they are in urgent need of updating and as the site was full during our stay, there is a definite shortage of toilets and showers, resulting in queues at times. Not sure why the toiletries shelves in the showers are at above head height which is a pain and we are not fans of the piped music - each to his own perhaps. There is a fair amount of noise both from the aircraft on the flight path into and out of Edinburgh airport and from the road outside the site which tends to be used as a race track by cars and especially motorbikes so care is needed entering or exiting the site. Otherwise the pitches are a good size and have a tv aerial plug on the electric pole although we got a better picture on our caravans aerial. The site is on the Marine Drive and a short walk down to the Firth of Forth. There are numerous places to visit in the near area - we especially like the Royal Botanic Garden which is only a ten minute drive away and entry is free although the on street parking is a bit pricey at £2.20 an hour. One gripe of the city is the appalling state of the roads which are more pot holes and bad patching up than road so expect a bumpy ride!
