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.

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.

Lovely tidy campsite- great, clean facilities and very friendly amenable staff. We were able to borrow picnic furniture which was nice as we had no room to pack seats. Secure and mostly quiet- loved it.

This has got to be one of the best sites that I have been to. Loads of spaces on hard standing piches. Grass piches are on firm grass. Nice dog walking area at side of site. Quite a few articulated caravans visit site. Amazing vehicles.

Toilet and block facilities are outstanding. Laundry. Washing up area. Camp shop stocks basics. Children play area.

Good chip shop in local village (Aldo's. Battered haggis. Yummy)

To side of flight path for Edinburgh airport 10 miles out. Planes landing every 2 mins certain time of day. Very little noise. Got binochular's out. Nearly turned into a plane spotter.

It is not on a bus route so car req'd. Some good walking routes off site. We used park and ride to get into Edinburgh. Free parking. And No22 into town (4 return rover ticket)then same stop in town get a No 25 to Leith Docks see Queens ex Brittania. (15)

The staff will do anything for you very friendly site. Cost 2 x OAPs 1 dog. 20 a night. A bit isolated but what a bargin.

I will return for sure.

The site was fully booked on the night we got there, but still the owener let us look at a couple of pitches to see which would be better for our big tent. The friendliness of the staff was the same for the rest of our stay, nothing was too much bother.

For small children there is a sand pit to play in.

We went on a couple of the walks from the site, the one to the aquaduct was especially picturesque. We were using the site as a handy base for visiting Edinburgh, the park and ride into the city is about a 5 minute drive away where there are regular trams into the centre. Edinburgh Zoo is also only about a 15 minute drive away.

The plane noise didn't bother us at all, the minor road next to the site was a bit more noticeable but it was more than made up for by the friendliness of the welcome. We would happily stay here again.
