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.

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!
