This is a wonderful campsite, its about 25 minutes drive into Edinburgh but well worth the drive. Very clean campsite, facilities always clean and happy owners and staff. There are also some very nice Yurts you can hire.

Amazing site - would recommend highly

We stayed here for one night as 2 adults and 2 children. We arrived around tea time and were shown to our pitch by the owner who was very friendly. Huge hard standing pitch with ample room for any size of motor home never mind my vw. Campsite was spotless and well kept with short well cut grass all over. Toilet/ shower block was clean and modern. Fantastic play park for the children. This site is only 5 miles away from Edinburgh Airport and if you are a very light sleeper the planes may disturb you. They did not have an impact on any of us and would return without hesitation.

We stayed at Linwater before in 2015 and loved it that time, glad to see standards are just as high this time we stayed.

The plot we had was very well maintained and flat, the only slight issue was the electric hookup point for our tent was to far away for the ehu unit we had to reach (ours is 20m, the hook up point was nearer 25m away from the cable entry point of our tent) - I managed to hook up a 25m extension reel to get us power to the tent.

With hindsight I'll buy an extension lead to work with our EHU to give me greater distance or I suppose I could have pitched the tent closer to the hook up point and not at the pack of the pitch like I did.

Shower facilities were kept immaculate despite it being relatively busy a weekend on the site.

The staff were very friendly when we checked in and when we visited the shop

Playpark on site is well maintained and kept our 5yr old amused

Love this site as its well maintained and looked after - we will be back

This is an amazing site! The pitches are enormous, all the facilities are modern and the whole site is kept spotless. The owners are so friendly and helpful, and made us feel very welcome. I loved that we were in the countryside yet Edinburgh city wasn't too far away. If we ever venture up this way again we won't hesitate in returning.

We checked in for about 4 nights initially and extended and extended up to three weeks - that's how much we liked this site! Everybody, from the owners Alastair & Katie to the wardens Jean & Jim as well as the cleaners & the guy who spent hours on the ride-on mower, were delightful and friendly. Whilst we were there we took the opportunity of getting our caravan serviced by a local dealer and Alastair kindly allowed us to use his shed to store some of our gear whilst this was done, which was a great help.

The site is spacious with plenty of grassy areas and offers a spotless, modern ablution block, laundry and separate disabled facilities and although you can see the planes coming & going into Edinburgh airport the noise is not excessive and there is a curfew. In addition to hardstanding and grass pitches there are timber tents and a luxury 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom cabin. Despite being very rural it is within a 5-minute drive of a large park-&-ride for trams or buses into Edinburgh. Equally convenient is the village of East Calder with a Tesco Express, post office & a pub.

All in all for location, friendly & helpful staff and beautifully mown grass we would recommend Linwater to anyone visiting the Edinburgh area. We hope to return soon.

Reviewer: Helgawills 3 reviews from this member

We went at the busiest time for Edinburgh, during the Fringe Festival. Units were coming and leaving all the time, so the owners were very busy.

Facilities and grounds were kept immaculate, welcome and service was friendly at all times.

Particularly nice in Facility block are the cubicles for people not needing showers or keeping out of the way of basins for handwashing when doing teeth or make up.

We particularly like the dog walk, from back of site, which takes you along a beautiful valley, along a mill stream, to the Union Canal and an aquaduct. You can cross under the aquaduct and the head towards Edinburgh, past a very nice pub at Ratho, where excellent meals are available, booking necessary at busy times. There is a small area where dogs can be brought inside.

Campside sells a few groceries, particularly eggs laid by their own hens, which can be spotted all over the site.

Will definitely keep going back.
