Great news - we’re investing £2.5 million in improving our hugely popular Edinburgh Club Campsite over 2024 and 2025. The site will close fully from 8 January to 3 March 2024 and will partially reopen on 4 March 2024. The site is expected to fully reopen from 30 August 2024. Find out more details on the exciting redevelopment plans at camc.com/redevelopments.

In the meantime, Edinburgh is easily accessible from these alternative campsites:

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 King'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.

ONE OF THE GREAT SITES

Edinburgh Club Campsite
Unasumingly looking for a trip over the Xmas period so a couple weeks before managed to get booked in here for 31st December 2023 1st & 2nd Jan 24. Planned trip as setting off on the 28th December from Hull going up A1 then accros to Keilder Castle , then up to Pebbles and the to Edinburgh. The welcome we recieved was one of the best all the staff so friendly and helpfull, with it being new Years Eve, we asked about transport into Edinburgh , way and behold they had already organised in antisipation mini buses to ferry anyone there from 5pm onwards and rerturns from 1am onward to 3am , just wasn't expecting such organisation what stars. The next two days we found the site to be quite and relaxing with everyone staff and other guests being so friendly. Will be looking at a return during the warmer months. Just great keep it up SLANGEVAR!

Edinburgh exploring

Edinburgh Club Campsite
This was our second visit to the Edinburgh Club Campsite - so I suppose that says a lot! The site is clean and well laid out and the staff are friendly. The facilities are maintained well. The site is under the flight path for Edinburgh Airport but this didn't cause us any problems. There are simple bus links into Edinburgh (a short walk) - we have now identified the 16, 27 and the 9 - or you can take advantage of the minibus service which goes from reception. On this visit we also walked up the coast on the cycle/footpath to Cramond and then followed the River Almond path - we noted that there are lots more walking / cycling opportunities than first thought. We will return next year.

Edinburgh laughing all the way!

Edinburgh Club Campsite
You don’t need to dig deep into your sporran to stay in wonderful Edinburgh. The Caravan and Motorhome Club site has all the first class fascilities we are accustomed to and is in an idyllic position on the Firth of Forth yet only a short bus ride out of the city or a personal taxi service from the campsite morning and evening for only £4 per trip with the friendliest Scotsman North of the Border, a stand up comic in his spare time, makes for a very entertaining journey with fellow passengers, plus the drop off point is only round the corner from the first ministers mansion! How cool is that?

A site for exploring Edinburgh

Edinburgh Club Campsite
We stayed 3 nights to attend events in Edinburgh. Our pitch was level, the facilities were clean and everything worked. On arrival we were told about the path to the bus stop but found it very muddy and swampy in places, best walked in wellies or boots. After traversing it once we decided the better option was to continue along the pavement to Pennywell Cottages bus stop - a slightly longer walk of about 15 minutes. A torch is essential for either route as there are no street lights along most of Marine Drive. We enjoyed our visit to the Royal Yacht Britannia and hope to be back next year. I would say this is a good site for exploring Edinburgh, despite being under the flight path for Edinburgh airport.

A lovely stay!

Edinburgh Club Campsite
A lovely site where the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The site is in the perfect location for Edinburgh with an easy bus route but, even better, a taxi ride away, direct from the site with the lovely Graham! Well worth the extra pennies as, not only do you get collected from the caravan site, but you also get a tourist guide on your journey into the city! It's quicker and the dogs can go in the taxi with you too! Thank you Graham, we loved it! The site could, like a lot of others in the club, do with an upgrade, especially in the toilet blocks which, at times, were left in a real state! It is on a flight path to the airport but that didn't bother us at all. We enjoyed a lovely walk along the promenade, just outside the site, yes there was litter in the woods but that isn't the fault of the site managers! Thank you, we'd definitely return!
