We stayed for two nights before the Bank Holiday and the site and amenities are very clean and well kept.

The dog walking is excellent and there are a few pubs within easy walking distance.

The wardens were very friendly and helpful and allowed us to leave the MH past booking out time whilst we went into Edinburgh by car to watch our Son run a marathon.

The planes did fly over, but didn't cause us any problems.

We would stay there again.

A lovely site, ideal for visiting Edinburgh and its region. The reception was very friendly, and gave us many advice and documents to help us visiting the Lothian.

Edinburgh is close and the camping is only at 15mn from the tram park+ride, so you can avoid to use your car and pay for a parking in town : parking is free and for 4, you have an unlimited ticket for tram and bus in Edinburgh.

We stayed there 5 nights, but were a bit surprised by the weather: freezing temperatures and 3 inches of snow the second day + roads flooded were not expected!

Fortunately, the camping itself is very good : spotless modern and heathed facilities, large pitches (we were happy to have chosen a hardstanding one).

The only drawback is the main track inside the camping, that became very muddy with this weather, although the pitches were better gravelled and stayed very clean.

We booked four nights in the smallest of the 'timber tents', shaped like a Toblerone, in the week leading up to the Easter weekend.

Our overall impressions were positive despite some grim weather. The welcome was friendly, the mini-lodge was clean & comfortable and the site well placed for Edinburgh, the Pentland hills and Falkirk.

Washrooms were clean & pleasant though one shower in the ladies wasn't working.

There are two washing up sinks - lots of hot water & space but outside, under a small canopy situated at the eastern end of the washing block. This would normally work well with prevailing westerly winds but throughout our stay the so called 'Beast from the East' dominated the weather resulting in bitterly cold washing up sessions!

Any other negatives?

You should be aware you are under the flight path for the airport. Planes are coming & going every 10 mins or so from 6am until about 10pm. Great for plane spotting but not for those who are noise adverse.


There is excellent walking on canal towpaths straight from the site. We would also recommend driving to Falkirk and walking between The Kelpies & the Falkirk Wheel - a round trip of about 8 miles but all on towpaths with parking, cafe & toilets at either end.

You can also use the canal network to walk to the Edinburgh climbing centre - there is a cafe with a view over the walls & you don't need to pay unless you are taking part in an activity.

The Pentland hills are a short drive from the site.

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
