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.

Edinburgh Club site

Edinburgh Caravan Club Site
The site is on par with the majority of club sites. I stayed 3 weekends in November for watching the rugby. The facilities were the same standard as other club sites. I have stayed before and will stay again as suits my needs.Yes there is aircraft noise, this is sometimes noisy sometimes not so bad depends on the wind direction, you get used to it. It may not be in the best location, but there are buses not to far away and a regular mini bus from the site, which I have not used, just because we generally come back after it has finished for the night. It is extremely close to the promenade and the nearest footpath does go through a rough camp probably used by street drinkers, I did see 2/3 going in one evening. I agree with other comments the road to the site in the dark is very dark and it did frighten my wife, especially one night when a drunk appeared from the footpath through the football pitches, not sure who got the biggest fright us or him. I think the site is very poorly lit and can’t understand why it is so dark. I think there could be an access gate at the beginning of the site as you approach from the City side, this could have a physical lock as other sites have, this would reduce the walking distance on the unlit road. The entrance is poorly lit and the lighting here should be increased. I also think the club could be more proactive on lighting the path along the main road from the site. Never really have much interaction with wardens on any site as we do our research before going. Will still use the site as it meets our needs

Super site and staff

Edinburgh Caravan Club Site
Stayed here for 3 weekends for the rugby. Was a little apprehensive after reading some reviews but needn’t have worried. Site is in a great location - minutes from the seafront prom and cycle route to Leith, handy for getting in to the city centre by foot (an hour), bus or taxi. Yes, some may think the immediate area is less than salubrious and yes, there is aircraft noise. We felt safe on and around the site in the evenings and barely noticed the planes. Facilities are super clean and the showers are fab - constant hot water and none of that push button malarkey! Staff are very friendly and helpful and the site is well-maintained. Not sure you could ask for anything more from a site so close to a major city centre. We’ll definitely be back.

Great site, lovely staff

Edinburgh Caravan Club Site
We stayed here on 3 consecutive weekends to watch rugby autumn internationals. The site is located within walking distance of a seafront promenade. But probably the biggest appeal is having all the attractions of Edinburgh City centre only a few miles away. Regular minibus leaves the campsite charging £4 per head for single journey or £6 return to city centre. Graeme the driver is certainly character worth meeting. Staff at the site were lovely giving a warm welcome during all 3 visits. The site itself is well layed out with well maintained clean facilities. Only minor things to bear in mind are some noise from planes approaching nearby airport and occasional sounds of off road motorcycles racing around nearby sports field during early evening but not a deal breaker. I would happily recommend this site and will definitely return.

Handy for city but poor facilities

Edinburgh Caravan Club Site
As stated in previous reviews, the location is ideal for the city but not in winter months. Unlit road, pitch black with concerns for safety walking from bus stop about a quarter mile away , Difficult to see unlit entrance to the site . Staff are lovely, site well kept but facilities well past their use by date. Clean but very aged . The showers are awful and not what one would expect on a caravan and motorhome club site . We have been coming here for 12 years and there is an obvious lack of investment compared to other sites such as the facilities as stated and absence of full width drive over motherhood drains
