Why stay here ...

Edinburgh Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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.

Pricey for what you get

Edinburgh Club Campsite
This was our first experience of a caravan and motorhome club site after joining this year. Unfortunately during our stay I cancelled any further membership as I was disappointed with the value for money, it is costly to stay here and as other reviewers have mentioned you are On a busy flight path for Edinburgh airport, and there are two homeless hostels directly opposite the site which gives a feel of a run down area. The shower and toilet block was kept nice and clean but it was dated and in need of some repairs. No shop on site even though it claims to have one it is merely a couple of shelves with UHT milk, Pringles and a couple of tinned items and a domestic freezer with some ice creams. The electric on the site is clearly an issue no more than 1 appliance at a time and the shower block lost all power needing to be closed on our last evening, there was a slightly smaller block on the other side of the site but with so many people needing to use it, it became an issue. We used the minibus and Graham was a great character but it was quite expensive also at £8 each return where the public bus was £3.60 each return. No near shops for supplies, a good 25 minute walk to Morrisons along the unlit path. We loved Edinburgh but would not stay at this site if visiting again in the future.

Second stay

Edinburgh Club Campsite
We have just returned from a 9 day stay at the site and it was every bit as good as we remembered from 5 years ago. The Wardens are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Just want to call out a massive thanks to Ian & Michelle who took pity on us and ran us to the car hire depot when we were let down by the taxi company - and they were on the way in their motorhome to their next relief warden jobs in Kendal! That really is going the extra mile! The facilities on site are spotless and the grounds kept in tip top order. Bus stops are a short walk away and at £1.80 single fare, a real bargain. We only had the car hire for half our stay so relied on the bus in and out of town with no complaints. The aircraft noise is there but to be honest it didn’t really affect us and we tuned out to it after a couple of days. It stops about 11pm and doesn’t start until 6.30/7.00 am so no big issues - unless you live in the middle of nowhere! Some visit tips - Edinburgh Zoo, Edinburgh Botanical Gardens, Falkirk Wheel and The Kelpies, The Real Mary King’s Close underground Tour, afternoon tea on The Fingal ship at Ocean Terminal. We had a great time but unfortunately won’t be back as whilst we were away we sold the motorhome and she is shortly moving onto pastures new for new adventures. Thank you Edinburgh site for making our last motorhome holiday a great success.

ished e could have stayed longer

Edinburgh Club Campsite
We only had 1 night here on our route home and we wished we could have more time here. A lovely walk down to Crammond promenade and very dog friendly. Tide depending you can walk out to Crammond Island too. Crammond falls a few minutes drive away also. From the site there is a return mini bus to Edinburgh at times to suit most and a regular bus service runs not to far away. The site was very clean and well laid out with good facilities. Glad to see the bins are still on site, we find this makes it easier to recycle. The only down side was the proximity to Edinburgh Airport and the planes going over. They did seem to be quiet overnight. The staff were very helpful when we arrived, its was sol lovely to be greeted with a smile. Our pitch size was adequate for our needs. We need to go back and explore more.

Nice Site

Edinburgh Club Campsite
Friendly and helpful Staff on arrival. Pitches were a good size. Facilities were clean and tidy. There were planes overhead during the day and evening but this stopped at night. However, the road to the site was in a dreadful state with pot holes, uneven filling in, lumps and bumps, were told by the site staff that this is not something they can control and to contact the Council. The Cramond beach area was a short walk from the site and had a lovely beach with the opportunity of spotting a few wading birds and Herons. All in all a good site.

TAKE EARPLUGS! THE PLANES WILL KEEP YOU AWAKE

Edinburgh Club Campsite
Stayed here for two nights while visiting family in Edinburgh. The site was nice, staff were lovely and toilet block was spotless, but the planes flying over every few minutes at low altitude, day and night, drove us nuts! It’s a real shame as the site is really close to everything you need in Edinburgh. Sadly, we will not be returning!
