In spite of the alarming number of high spec German motor-mansions parked all around our humble, rental vehicle, all manner of camper seemed to fit in nicely at this superbly situated site. It really does have it all, proximity to Edinburgh (a short, regular bus ride away; the helpful staff advised us to get a mega-cheap all day family ticket which also permitted us to use trams- very exciting for the children!) and a surprisingly rural location. The latter is really worth exploring, again, staff gave me some maps of the surrounding countryside where one can walk or cycle for miles with some wonderful views. The site is expensive but the facilities are good and clean. The shower block closest to our pitch had half the showers out of use, which was a little disappointing but others were available a short walk away. My children tell me the playpark was 'awesome' and the site felt safe enough for us to allow them to go and explore and play away from the pitch. We would definitely visit again. The only negative point; given that it was pricey, charging 5 extra for wifi access seemed a bit of a cheek!

First visit to this site but we like its sister site at Bamburgh so gave it a try.

Excellent. Bank holiday weekend so busy but enough facility blocks to cope. Pitches at angles so although quite close we didn't directly overlook anyone. Rural setting despite being within the city bypass and with residential areas to the east and west. Bus into the city every 20 mins, or 30 mins on Sunday. 3. 50 for day ticket. Buy on the bus, correct money only but takes notes.

Would suspect facilities could be a bit stretched when the festival field is opened to campers.

Shop looks sizeable but could carry more stock

Stayed at mortonhall for 3 nights near the end of November cost 60 plus a 1. 50 online booking fee (would have been better off just phoning). Long drive leading down to the site entrance is a narrow road with passing places. Booking in was easy and the girl on reception gave us a run down on where to eat and drink in Edinburgh.

The site itself is large but was not busy when we were there so had the pick of pitches.

The shower block (near the stables bar) is 1 of the best we have used! the under floor heating is a great touch and means its never cold!

Eat at the stables bar prices and service were both second to none.

As stated before bus stop at entrance and a short journey into the city, so much to do in Edinburgh 3 days was no where near enough so we will be returning soon

The main negative is outweighed by the positives.

On the down side, the pitches appear to be the minimum safety distance apart. The site is huge (more than doubled with a temporary tent site for the Festival - the secure lockers at Reception were a nice touch). So it was frustrating that most of the motorhomes were put cheek by jowl on adjacent pitches in one area when the site was 90% empty. Alternate pitches would have been more relaxing. Next time (out of season) we'd ask for somewhere to enjoy views of the site rather than other vehicles. Or (in high season, when the site's full) we'd need to put up a screen for privacy when we sit outside, and to deflect folk passing close by to get to the toilet block and CPD disposal.

On the plus side, the toilet block we used was clean (there are several blocks dotted over the site), the showers and hair dryers are free. Not heated though - the shower was a quick one! And there are lots of walks to enjoy in the estate.

Our primary reason for returning - and we will - would be the quick and easy access by bus into town. Buy a day ticket for hopping on and off - we went all the way to see The Britannia at Leith, came back to visit Edinburgh Castle, went out to the Botanics and back, stopped off in Morningside on the way home to stock up at Waitrose, all for 3.50 each. (Exact fare, no change given. )

Stayed here twice last year. Ideal base to explore Edinburgh. Staff extremely helpful. Spotless site and facilities cant recommend it enough. Plenty of room on the pitches. Well kept grounds. Children's play park is great. Quiet enough site away from hustle but close enough. Plenty of eateries nearby bus stop at end of road is very handy for easy access to Edinburgh. Loads of tourist attractions nearby.

Great site which is well located to visit city centre. Plenty showers and toilets which were clean (did have hundreds of daddy long legs!). Surroundings are lovely in walled park area and plenty space between each unit. Also a small pub/shop on site which we didn't use but looked nice.

Little play park for kids, quiet and overall a fab site. We will be back.

Could do with more lighting at night time.
