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.

Another one night stopover to break up a long journey and after 6 nights of only being able to hear sheep, birds and other wildlife the sound of cars and aeroplanes came as a bit of a shock. But the planes stop before 10pm and the cars are few and far between after about 9pm so they didn't bother me.

A well laid out and organised site and a warm and friendly welcome from the warden and also from other campers. The pitches are clearly labelled, flat and almost stone free (I found one when pitching the tent).

The dog thoroughly recommends the dog walk even if you don't have a dog! We both wished we were staying longer so we could have explored further the miles and miles of footpaths there appears to be round the site.

The shop in reception is well stocked with all the essentials that you might have forgotten and little treats that are just what you need to go with a cuppa after a long walk.

A lovely place and another site that has made it to the revisit list.

Lovely little site, the hard standings are ample size and level too! Shower and toilet block was clean, warm and modern and was never busy the weekend we were there. Pot washing is al-fresco and could really do with a roof overhang to keep the worst of the falling moisture from your dried pots! Was plenty of hot water though and washing up liquid/pads too. Huge sand pit for the little ones but not much else.

You can order morning rolls from the shop which were fantastic.

The 'banes' as our little one called them were not a problem although they were on arrivals when we were there, might be noisier on departures.

The nearby climbing wall by Rathough is a must visit even if you are not a climber, it is epic and well worth going to see for the omg factor, nice cafe too where you can watch the activities including the most bottom clenching high level adventure course I have ever seen!

Just returned from another four day break at Linwater Caravan Park, my second visit this year.

Due to the unfavourable weather forecast I left the tent at home and rented one of their timber tents. These are superb for a short break and have a fridge, an electric kettle and a heater which proved to be a blessing for these chilly September evenings.

I use this site regularly as it is one of the best that I have ever come across and there is always a warm welcome from Jean, the site owner. The pitches are all level on nicely tended grass with electric hook-ups and free Wi-Fi.

Although the site is in a very quiet & remote rural setting, local shops and takeaways are only about two and a half miles away and if you wish to travel into Edinburgh city centre it is only 5 - 10 minutes drive to the park and ride.

Five miles away are the Livingston retail park and outlet centre.

The site is only a few minutes walk from the Lin's Mill Aqueduct where the Union Canal crosses above the River Almond, so it is ideal for canoeing etc.

Well behaved dogs are made most welcome and are allowed off-lead. There is an excellent dog walk from the site.

Lovely site. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner Jean.

She was willing to answer questions about how to get go local attractions etc.

When we pitched she said that as it was a distance from the pitches to the central EHU post, she had extentiins, which she duly brought down.

The loos/showers were spotless. Loved the fact that the showers were the type you tend to have at home and not push the button for ten seconds of water.

The reception sold a few sweets and drinks, along with bacon, sausage and haggis. Oh and highly recommended ice cream.

In the reception area there was a 'camping leftovers' box where you could leave bits that you no longer needed, or pick up bits that you had forgotten. Anything from some coffee to a chair.

I picked up pillows and put them back before we left.

The only minus is that it is on the flight path for Edinburgh Airport, so you do get the noise of the planes. However after the first day you get used to this.
