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.

Perfect base for visiting Edinburgh

We found this to be the perfect site. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is is perfectly located for trips to Edinburgh and close to a riverside walk. There is occasional aeroplane noise but nothing too intrusive. We had some fun looking on the “Flightaware” app to see where they were going to/ coming from. Definitely will return.

Useful location and helpful friendly staff

We enjoyed staying at this site in 2019 and so came back in 2020 - our first stay since sites opened up. The staff were friendly and very pleasant. Safety measures very clearly in place but without an officious tone. All facilities were clean and we didn't have to queue to use them. Used the cycle lockers and it was very easy to cycle from Cramond to Leith along the coast. The bus day ticket for £4.50 is very useful - the bus stop is a ten minute walk from the site and the buses are very regular. Not many places to eat nearby but glad that we went to Jacob's Place, a small bistro, with freshly cooked food about twenty five minutes walk. This is a very good location for the city, do not be put off by the surroundings.

Facilities very tired

The grounds of the site are extremely well maintained by the hardworking wardens who are very friendly. The site facilities are awful. Clean but old, tired, minimal and not suitable for people taller than 5ft 3 - I’m 5ft 10 and the shower head came to below my shoulder. The club needs to spend some money updating it. The drive to the site isn’t tough however the road surface is awful pretty much everywhere in Edinburgh! Area around the site is run down and there’s not a great deal to do close by but attractions are not too much of a drive away and there is a minibus that comes to site if you desire.

Another first class site in the network

This site is one of the best in the clubs network. This is our second visit to this site as a 3 night stopover on our trip through Scotland the site is very well maintained by the wardens and the toilet and showers facilities well maintained to a high standard, their control of the access to the toilets and showers was very good compared to other sites I like that the club has invested in secure bike lockers at this site, all the toilets are in good proximity to all pitches and I was very impressed with their tent area for those using that facility.We must not forget a shout out to Grayham who offers a mini bus service from reception direct into Edinburgh town £6 return per person and even dogs are allowed on board he even gives a bit of commentary about the area on your journey.Caravan Club Take a good look at this site and duplicate through your network

lovely clean site,

well maintained good quality site. Close to Edinburgh. nice seafront walk along to cramond some roman history there, also war history, nice area, some good coastal routes with some nice scenery. the only downside for us was the lodge down the road, we didn't feel very safe walking past down to the seafront, this and the high rise flats that you can see from the site marred it for us slightly. but otherwise a great site well placed for touring around the firth of forth area.
