An ideal base for exploring Edinburgh and Leith. The entrance to the site is beautifully landscaped and gives an excellent first impression. Staff all very friendly and eager to help. The pitches give a feel of privacy on an otherwise big site as there are hedges between every two vans. The facilities are excellent and spotlessly clean as you tend to expect on a Caravan Club site. The Firth of Forth is just down the road and there is a lovely promenade walk to the village of Cramond in one direction and then towards Leith in the other. There is a minibus on the site which runs very regular trips into the city centre and you can book your return trip. We cycled to Leith along mostly traffic free cycle paths to visit the Royal Yacht Britannia - a must visit. We spent a day in the city centre using the hop on hop off bus. We visited the Scottish Parliament and sat in on a debate for 15 min or so. The city is very much geared to tourists. We also visited the Royal Botanic Gardens which were really lovely and free to enter.

A first rate site for a city location. There is aeroplane noise.

We had a few days here in February and really enjoyed it. The site was immaculate, the shower block spotless and the whole site well looked after. The lady in reception was probably the friendliest and most helpful person we have every met in such a job.

There is an excellent bus service to the city from near the site, it is about ten minutesí walk along a straight footpath to the bus stop. It was very wet while we were there but the footpath was in good condition with a good surface. The buses are every few minutes during the day and run late at night too.

There were a few planes overhead but the noise did not disturb us. The weather was cold and windy so we did not walk to the beach but as we drove home we saw it and will stay on the site again so we can enjoy the beach as well as visits to Edinburgh.

This is a typically well maintained Caravan Club site with all the usual well kept facilities, there are a number of site wardens the majority were very knowledgeable and friendly but the head wardens seemed to be somewhat 'regimental' (which was a shame) The site is set along side the Firth of Forth and has access to some lovely walks along the promenade and beach, it is also a must for those that like planes as its set directly under the final approach to Edinburgh Airport (aircraft at about 1000 feet so not annoying) There is a local minibus service which provides an excellent half hourly service from the site into the city centre for £6 return (the driver gave us a guided tour with tons of information - bookable on 0131 552 3515) All in all its a great place to stay whilst visiting the fantastic city of Edinburgh.

When we booked our stay we were unaware that we would have to walk either:

1) on a dark unlit public road


2) on a very dark unlit 'shortcut'

from the nearest Bus Stop back to the site at night.

We were not prepared to pay extortionate Taxi fares.

We always use local transport wherever we stay.

The site is of the usual high Caravan Club standards with regards to facilities.

Obviously we wanted to take full advantage of our stay in Edinburgh both during the day and at night.

We will not stay here again purely because it was not a pleasant experience walking from the nearest Bus Stop back to the site on the dark unlit road or path.

I would have preferred to have been told about this before I booked.

As others have said before, a gem of a site.

From the friendly wardens when you arrive you know it's going to be good.

Two shower blocks, the one we used was spotless and with all the fallen damp leaves around it was a great credit to the wardens that it never looked dirty.

The layout of the site also gives a relaxing feel with plenty of space between units.

Found no problem with my tv aerial, also mobile phone. As others have stated, there are aerial points available.

Buses were a short walk away, but we decided to use the Minibus that leaves the site at half hourly intervals to take us into the city centre. I believe it was £6 return, for the convenience it was well worth the money.

We also walked down the hill to the promenade which was well worth the walk.

Aircraft noise was evident, as was some road noise, it didn't bother us at all but some might find it annoying.

The three motorhome service points were well planned as was waste water, recycle and Chemical waste disposal.

We will definitely return, and next time it will be longer than three nights.

Ideally located along side the Firth of Forth and within easy reach of the Capital and motorways, the Zoo is not far away on the west side of the city. As this was a two night stop over we didn't venture too far from the site. However we did come over the FRB from the north and can confirm the new Queensferry bridge is well on its way and nearly joined together.

The site has all weather pitches with EHU points on COAX sockets, shower rooms and toilets are spotless, wardens and staff very helpful. Several MHSPs and water points.

The site is located on the west of the city, and within a few miles of the motorways allowing travellers easy access to all parts of the country.

Avoid leaving the site during the rush hour and school run times as the roads in and around the city are very busy,

Watch our for the Edinburgh transports trams and keep out of the bus lanes, Edinburgh airport is near bye, so expect a certain amount of engine noise from aircraft.

Happy Holidays
