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.

Various noises

Very windy when we were there, but above the wind noise was somebody's surround sound TV (owner's description, not our guess.) Why would anybody think surround sound TV with its repetitive boomy base is acceptable in a caravan? Then we were aware of a truck's engine starting and it driving off at about 6am each of 4 mornings. I thought most sites had restrictions on movement and/or locked barriers overnight? Without much doubt he was off to work, and there were other examples of high-vis jackets etc. There's only one site we know of ( not CMHC) that allows such residential use, and they force worker's vehicles to park outside the barrier. The aeroplane noise came fourth, partly because the club clearly has no control over that! Our little area didn't feel much like a club site. In it's favour, the rest of the site was as you'd expect, it was ideal for Edinburgh and the shuttle bus very useful

A return visit

Visited for a week in September. After being there at Easter, snow, rain, sun, blue skies, a great return....but traveled home on the day of storm Ali. Not for the feint hearted. Site is spotless as add the showers and toilet facilities. A credit to the wardens who tirelessly worked on through wind and storm. A great dog walk and well organised. Gave 5 for peace and quiet, occasionally interrupted by landing planes. Edinburgh has 100,000+ aircraft movements a year. Used Flightradar and could see and identify every plane in and out. Had to buy an aquaroll and wardens directed me to Go outdoors a mile or so away...written down complete with postcode from memory. They are a great bunch. We'd booked an evening river cruise from south queensferry, vist to the castle, Jamie Oliver's Italian and a return visit to Britannia at Leith. Could have stayed another week.

Great time in Edinburgh

We have just spent days 10 days at this site. The site is clean and tidy and the wardens are friendly and helpful. There is some noise from the planes flying into Edinburgh Airport but nothing to disturb you, after all you are on a city site not a rural one. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, inspite of the rain. Excellent mini bus service into the city. Thank you Graham. Loads of things to see and do in an interesting with a fascinating history. The only noise to disturb us was from the inconsiderate people in the next door caravan who were sitting in their awning laughing and talking until 1 am !!

Ok Site

Just arrived home after spending 5 nights at Edinburgh caravan club site and need a sleep. Site being on the flight path was an issue for us as we are light sleepers even although I wear earplugs. We feel it is a nice site very clean and the little bus service that they run was excellent but I’m afraid the noise was too much for us - on the Saturday night boy racers on the road which runs alongside. Its a big site and busy made if feel a bit crowded and not good had to queue for shower in ladies. Wardens are great and keep the place clean and tidy.

Lock up at night

Cracking club site to experience Edinburgh etc, everything nipping clean wardens first class, but this site has a problem with thefts through the night,we were there a few days ago and the people next to us had all there bikes stolen from the back of there mobile home.We were all shocked the next morning apparently the bad guys climbed over the the fence and just helped them self’s to their gear . The police asked if we herd or saw anything,but no one had, after a short conversation with the police it’s not the first time this has happened so please be vigilant and really lock your things away, don’t let these maggots ruin your holidays!!!
