Stayed at this site whilst visiting Edinburgh and also the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Access to motorway not far from site.

The park is clean and tidy with big pitches and Jean is fantastic.

Lack of kids play park was not an issue for my 4 kids as they had the freedom to run around and play with the other children. A good safe site.

Would recommend this park 100% as a base for the many attractions nearby.

What a great site. Friendly, spotlessly clean facilities generous size pitches only minor detail that lets site down is lack of playpark for kids although there is a large sandpit which does go some way to make up for that. Jean is a great woman very friendly helpful and cheery. We'll definitely be using this site again. Ideal for long walks along the union canal, and not too far away from livingston and edinburgh.

This is a great site, remote enough to provide a peaceful quiet weekend away but close enough to Edinburgh to enjoy all the capital has to offer. With the new tram service, a 10 minute drive takes you to the tram stop with free parking all day.

The site it's self is spotless and despite being full the weekend we stayed the site never felt busy. The showers were spotless and again there were no queues at the times I visited the showers.

Jean, the owner was more than helpful, the reception area full of useful information.

All in all a great site, great location and great price!

Lovely setting by Union canal and quite close to park and ride into Edinburgh. We stayed overnight here on our way north but will definitely be back. Planning to cycle into Edinburgh along the canal path.

Site was quiet on the Sunday night. First taste of Scottish morning rolls the following morning, ordered together with milk when we booked in and collected from reception in the morning - just leave the money on the desk. Sizeable pitches, easy access motorhome service point, very well kept site. But best of all were the facilities which were second to none. This was my 82 year old mother's first camping trip and she found everything to her satisfaction! Only time she had a proper shower cubicle. Set the standard very high for the rest of our tour!

Just returned from another visit to Linwater.

As usual the facilities on this dog friendly site were impeccable, far superior to many club sites, and the usual warm welcome and attention from Jean the site owner.

Prices are very reasonable with no extra charges for dogs or Wi-Fi.

Whilst the site is nice ad remote, it is only 10 minutes walk from the Union Canal and 5 minutes drive from the Rathay Park carvery that also serves take away meals. There is a small supermarket and post office about 2 miles away at East Calder.

Stayed at this wonderful caravan site whilst attending a wedding nearby. Park is very easy to find and is well sign posted. Facilities are spotless and showers have plenty free hot water. When first making this booking, I was greeted by a very cheerful person at the end of the phone. Good to meet her in person, and she clearly delights in looking after her guests. Even allowed us a very late check-out on our last day. Much appreciated. We felt very much at home during our stay. Park is not huge but well laid out with sizeable hard standings & 16A hook-ups. We were able to get free access to Wi-Fi during our stay though it was at times intermittent. Park & Ride at Hermiston is just a short distance from the site. No need to take the car into the city. Plenty tourist information available from the site's office. Only down-side, and completely out of the park's control, is the noise from aircraft taking off from early morning to late at night. Advice - Take some earplugs. Would love to visit again. Suspect it would be well used during the Edinburgh Festival, Tattoo and Royal Highland Show dates!
