Was able to secure a tent pitch at the last minute at this site. They were very accommodating and even left the directions at the reception door after hours since we got in late. The non-electric tent pitches are in the middle of a field and it proved to be very challenging camping during that night due to bad weather. The best part though was the shower/toilet block. Very clean and warm with music pumped in, very nice for a lady with kids. The baby changing loo was less nice but still clean and useful. The kids loved the highland cow on the way out and the gent that checked us out was very friendly and accommodating. Easy car ride into the city made this site very worth the £16.

Stayed here for 2nd time this time for 1 night on 9th August 15. Big site, very helpful staff and 1st class facilities. Great on site pub, kitchen and TV room. Nice level good sized pitches with or without power. Car parking at pitch added bonus. Great shop and good bus link into Edinburgh. 2minutes Off city bypass makes it a great place to see the shows around Festival time. Plenty of toilet and shower block all around the site always with hot water and kept very clean. Will def use again.

We had 2 nights in July the park wasn't busy, so didn't have to wait for showers/ toilets. On arrival they couldn't find our booking, then said oh you're already booked in??? We found our site which wasn't that easy, however plenty of room, pricing was comparable to other parks we stayed at in England. The park itself is beautiful, only wish we had more time there to walk around the park more ( we spent our valuable short time in Edinburgh) bus is very close and easy to use. In Australia we have camp kitchens for anyone to use with bbq's, seats and wash up facilities, bbq area don't seem exist in Scotland / England, they can be a good meeting place with other travellers, here there is a wash up area only. There is a pub close by, you would need to book for a meal, but a very nice little meeting place.

We stayed at this site recently and have to say how impressed we were with not only the facilities and location but with how helpful the staff were too. The site is very reminiscent of ones we've stayed at both in Europe and in Australia too. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this site if you're visiting Edinburgh, or just stopping over as we were, whilst heading north to the Highlands. Remember you get what you pay for in life but here you get more! Loved it and will be back.

One of only a few campsites available in Edinburgh, this is definitely what you would call a 'glamping' site.

Everything is super organised, but the campsite will take every opportunity to charge for things, such as use of the kitchen area.

The recycling facilities were excellent and the campsite has a highland cow on the way in which was cool.

Although not a fault of the campsite, the ground is very rocky - most of our pegs bent and we had to buy some more from the campsite (which were reasonably priced).

The shower facilities look nice, but the showers are not very good in my opinion. The temperature is sporadic, changing from blazing hot to icy cold instantly, but mostly staying to hot to step into. I can't remember the specific details as it was about a month ago, but I was not at all happy with my showers whilst there, and I'm not particularly fussy.

Quite expensive too at around £12 per person per night, but still cheaper than any hostel or hotel you will find in Edinburgh.

Easy to get to from Edinburgh town centre by bus, but make sure you have the exact change for the bus.

Overall a lovely place to stay. The site is well kept and the on site shop is well stocked. It had fresh bread everyday. If you a larger shop there is a Tesco Express a short car drive away. There were 3 toilet/shower blocks on site. The toilet block nearest to where we stayed was well kept, but with few showers for the size of site.

I would say that the only real draw back about this site was that the pitches were extremely small. We have a large tent, which the campsite knew when we booked. The pitch was that small that the couple next to us were completely hidden by our tent, which we apologized for, but there was no other way to pitch. There was a games room, laundry and a kitchen on site, but as we did not use I cannot comment, they did look clean though. There was a lovely bar/pub on site. It was in an old court yard type thing. Full of character and absolutely beautiful food. I would strongly advise that you BOOK in advanced as there were really busy every evening that we went up there for a drink.

The location of the site is great, close enough to Edinburgh to have a really good explore but far enough away to be peaceful. The bus link that they advertise is really great. It is a cheap way of exploring Edinburgh. The castle is lovely and as are the gardens. There is an old part of Edinburgh and a newer part, both equally lovely.

In the reception/shop they do have the facility to re-freeze your ice blocks, but it is not 100% guaranteed that you will get your own ice blocks back again, as it seemed like a very hap-hazard way of identifying whose blocks are whose.

The site was very large and with no gates etc they do supply 2 security guards at night, more for peace of mind I think.

All the members of staff that worked there were all very helpful.

This site was great but larger pitches woulod have saved on a little embarrassment, and made it a little more comfortable for campers.
