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.

Excellent site for Edinburgh

Edinburgh Club Campsite
We had 3 nights here in our motorhome. The welcome was excellent. The pitches are large and spacious and the toilets and showers, although a little dated were clean and functional. Small dog area, wouldn’t describe it as a walk! But it’s a short walk out of the site for some green space. Generally the site was quite quiet but there are regular flights going overhead so a bit of noise from them but we didn’t find it a problem and the flights stop overnight. It’s a 10 minute walk to the bus stop for either Edinburgh (27) or the Royal Yacht (16). Flat fare of £1.85 each way. Bargain! Enjoyed our stay and would use the site again.

Didn’t know what to expect after reading some reviews

Edinburgh Club Campsite
This stay was our last in our first tour of Scotland and having read some of the reviews ahead of arrival we arrived with a little trepidation. Our fears were unfounded, we were welcomed and given lots of information, there were plenty of pitches to choose from, all very well spaced and with lots of lovely shrubs and tress for privacy. The toilet blocks are standard for The club but the showers are so powerful and warm and no timer - wonderful. Although the public transport is excellent and cheap, the convenience of the mini bus service into the city was an added bonus. Yes, there is a little noise from aircraft but living in. Manchester that didn’t bother us. Lovely walk down to the promenade which is a great place for families. Would we come again..... absolutely.

A well kept site in an ideal location.

Edinburgh Club Campsite
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the facilities were very clean although a little dated shower blocks. A five minute walk across the road and you were on the beach/boardwalk which was great for the dog and/or cycling. The site minibus was very useful into the town and the driver was a real character and very friendly. We will use this site again for our next visit to the fringe festival.

Edinburgh weekends

Edinburgh Club Campsite
We first used this site in January this year, as part of our family live in Edinburgh. We’ve now visited twice with a third, so far in the summer. It’s handy for visiting them and events we have in the city, (check out Crammond cars & coaches for transport into the city) It also provides us with a quiet getaway too, with a walk to the promenade and park on the coast nearby. Friendly Wardens, well spaced pitches, clean and tidy facilities and site. What more could we want?

Great location for Edinburgh and relaxing.

Edinburgh Club Campsite
Well kept site with friendly staff. We took public transport into Edinburgh just £1.80 each way or £4.50 day saver ticket. Also direct bus to Royal Yacht Brittania and Leith. It's a short walk to catch the bus which are quite regular. As we were late one evening (2100hrs) we caught an UBER from the far side of the town centre for just £15. Lots of cycle paths and lovely promenade just a short stroll away. A little noisy on the pitches next to the road. Great value at around £25 at this time of year.
