Excellent site with friendly wardens.

We have stayed on this site many times, usually two to three times per year and have always found the staff friendly and welcoming. The site is well maintained and toilet blocks kept clean and warm, which was great as our last stay was in October this year. The site is well situated for Edinburgh and the surrounding area, as documented by other reviewers. The aeroplane noise does not bother us as we live near an airport. The boy racers at weekends can disturb the peace, but no one has any control over them. Overall a great site, well worth visiting.

Agree with the 5 tick Reviews

Visited at the beginning of October for 3 nights. Great site for visiting Edinburgh. Site staff all very friendly and cheerful. Large site but does not feel like one. Pitches and grounds all very tidy and well maintained. Toilets water and waste facilities very clean and well maintained. Site peaceful yet with easy access to the city. We used the mini bus one day and the local bus service another, both are great. Will definitely visit again.

What noise

We have been touring Scotland, Edinburgh being our last stop on the return journey. We had been told many times during our trip about the plane noise so we reduced our stay to a couple of nights. When we arrived, an excellent site, friendly wardens and ideal for visiting the city by minibus of course (yes I do read the reviews) we wondered why people had tried to put us off, yes there were planes but not constant and only when landing on one particular runway. The second day we extended our stay to a week, I explained to the warden our reason and in her words, you can’t please everyone, but I wish customers would give us a fair try first. Thank you to all the wardens for a lovely stay.

Immaculate

This site is superb, we were greeted by a lovely warden who was a ray of sunshine, explained the site in great detail ( perfect ). We then drove round to pick our pitch and immediately noticed how immaculate the condition of the site, all the lawned areas looked fantastic, the hedges and there are many , are all neat and tidy, the shower block was very clean and tidy and plenty of hot water, the shower block is a little dated. Now what I think is fantastic all the lights around this site are working oh joy, so many of the sites we go to have so many lights not working. These wardens are extremely hard working , thank you for all your hard work

Good site. Take advantage of the minibus.

Traveled up from yorkshire to Scotland and stayed here for 2 night in September. Great site and the only noise was the planes as the airport is nearby but not a real problem. Staff are great and very informative and helpful. The one tip I can give is if you are thinking of going into the city is to use the mini bus that will pick you up from opposite reception. Give them a ring (reception as the number) and for £6 p/p return he will pick you up and bring you back later it only takes 15 mins each way which is far quicker than the bus and a lot less bother as the nearest bus stop is 15 mins walk away and the about 45 mins ride. Overall a great site to stay at. Use the mini bus.

Nice Place

Everything was fine, but the WiFi didn't work very well, especially between 9pm and 9am it did not work.

Wonderful Edinburgh

This was a return visit to this site after eight year as we wanted to explore the city more. Generally facilities are fine if a bit dated and disappointing that the motorhome service points still need heavy covers to be lifted, especially as this is a very popular site with motorhomes from both home and abroad. The aircraft noise has certainly increased since our last visit, lasting well into the night. Obviously completely outside the control of the Club. There are two main options for getting into the City. There are a couple of frequent bus services from Muirhouse Parkway which is at least a three quarter of a mile walk from the site. The 27 bus is a direct route into and across the City or the 16 which also goes to the Centre but via the Ocean Terminal area where you can visit the Royal Yacht Britannia. The main downside is that I would not want to walk back from the bus when it was dark along an unlit road. The other option is the excellent fixed priced taxi service from outside reception which drops you off at the top of Princes Street. I was a little surprised when I rang the site prior to arrival to confirm the service was still running and the staff seem keen to point out it was nothing to do with them. Given that it is such an essential service for this site I imagined it would have been embraced a bit more! As the campsite is clearly run in conjunction with the City Council I am surprised the idea of diverting one of the buses along Marine Drive has not been explored. Putting all that to one side we enjoyed the couple of days we spent exploring Edinburgh. The 27 bus stops at the Botanic Gardens if you want to break your journey. We also visited Holyrood Palace and enjoyed a sunny Saturday afternoon in the Castle Gardens after a visit to the Portrait Gallery.

Great location for the city if you are OK with some noise

Stayed for 3 nights in Sept. Cycled to the new Forth Road Bridge on mainly traffic free routes. Maps in info hut cover part of this. 22 mile round trip, great views. Wide cycle path on bridge. We found the aircraft noise a bit intrusive at the site, from 7 am until 3am one lands every few minutes. As they are coming in gear down it is not as bad as take off but you are aware of it. Went to the city in the Minibus. Highly recommended!! Time arranged by phone and took us in 15 mins to the city drop off and pick up point. 2 min walk and we were on the tour of the city bus. Brilliant. It's a couple of pounds more than the service bus...but with the walk and the 40 min intervals they can take an hour each way. Be aware there are no street lights outside the site and for us door to door was worth the extra £4. Driver knowledgeable and friendly. Site facilities due for a refresh, shower blocks a bit dated but functional, drive over drain still has a lift cover. Really enjoyed Edinburgh and the site did what we needed. We are also really good at identifying aircraft now!

Consistent High Standard

This is our second visit to this site and we were pleased to see that the excellent quality of maintenance and the friendly helpful staff atmosphere hadn't changed in the interim. Terrific dog walk.

I’ll Be Back

This has to be one of the best sites around for visiting Edinburgh. We arrived earlier than we expected and were met by courteous friendly staff in reception, nothing was too much trouble and their priority was to make sure that we had a pleasant stay. Good access into the city and all local attractions. We plan on visiting again next year.
