A lovely site situated just outside Edinburgh. The site is small and is surrounded by trees. This may limit your pitch as to getting any sun. Facilities are in one central block with two showers and two loos in ladies. Hot water is free on a push button system. This is set for a very short time and we had to keep one hand constantly pushing button to have a decent shower. There are two wash basin cubicles too. Laundry room and office in the same block. There is a motorhome service point and other rubbish and waste water and fresh water points around site. Mixture of hard and grass pitches. Hard standings are large and can easily take caravan, car and awning. Grass pitches are more grouped together in the centre of the site. The entrance gates are kept closed and you have to open them manually. WiFi is 1. 50 a day and worked fine for us. No children's area on site and no ball games allowed. The site lies down a small road that is a dead end so very quiet. Lovely walks in valley next to site although this is quite steep. Village is five minutes and has a Coop, post office and small general shop open till late. Roslin chapel nearby and well worth a visit. Good local pub with good food called the original. Buses from village to Edinburgh are frequent and run all day and into night. A lot to recommend this site, we would definitely use it again.

I can't say a bad word about Slatebarns. Beautiful surroundings, peaceful, relaxing, spotless facilities, fab pub near by with great food, a little supermarket five minutes walk away, outstanding dog walks on Roslin Glenn, great local bus service to Edinburgh & the wonderful Roslynn Chapel just 50 steps away. We have stayed twice this year and already trying to sort dates to go again. The owners Pam & Brian can't do enough to help, it's possibly the best touring site we have ever had the pleasure of staying on.

The site is directly next to Roslin Chapal so if you are in Roslin to see this particularly amazing historic building then great. The Campsite itself was very nice, relaxed and charming. The facilities basic, almost hostel like in the layout. There is no shop but there is a small supermarket close by and a couple of large supermarkets a short drive away. For dog walkers the forest is a minute or so around the corner and for me the highlight of the site. The forest is absolutely beautiful and there are a few walks around the perimeter of the chapel giving outstanding views. The staff were informative when prompted, not particularly friendly or visible. This is very much a business enterprise but leaves little in terms of services to warrant the way in which the site is run. In summary this is a functional site that is augmented by the fantastic woodland and historic buildings very close by.

Arrived on Thursday for one night - stayed for four!

Excellent campsite, good clean facilities, laundry and dish-washing (no charge for hot water), spacious pitches, recycling facility, very friendly staff and peaceful relaxing atmosphere.

Just a short stroll to Roslin chapel, a few local shops, bus stop to Edinburgh and great pub with excellent food and a good choice of beers!

Will definitely be our campsite of choice when visiting Edinburgh in future.

What a lovely site it was beautiful well laid out, lovely facility block very clean, may be a bit pushed if every pitch filled but your on holiday so a wait no problem, laundry good and clean. No shop on site but a lovely walk into the village where there is a coop, a few small stores, post office a coffee /tea room and a lovely pub. Oh and of course the Chapel so beautiful and made famous by the di vinci code well worth a visit and do listen to the history of it talk. Made my visit to Rosslyn great.

What a great site. Pitches are marked out which I normally don't like, but here you have plenty of room and not all lined up like terrace houses, there's a mix of hard and green pitches all of which are quite level, all around are trees and greenery with plenty of rabbits hopping about. The showers and toilets look very new and are all very clean with plenty of hot water. The owners were always very friendly and the price was good considering how close to Edinburgh you are. We did park and ride, but I think its easier if you take the bus from just outside the camp site( 5 minute walk ) Rosslyn chapel is almost next door, well worth a visit. We were put of by the 9 charge but the carvings are fantastic. We didn't go and I now regret it as I live in kent 400 miles away :-(
