Spent 3 nights at this C. C. Site, its only 20 minutes from home.

Quite a large site but layout makes it feel smaller.

Usual C. C. Hard standing pitches, room for caravan, car with room for awning if required and chosen.

Lots of service points dotted throught the site. Two toilet blocks and although site was busy we never needed to queue for a shower.

Good bin and recycle setup.

Good links to Edinburgh City centre, there is also a minibus service from the site at a cost of £6 return at time of our visit, which is more expensive than usual bus service but it is door to door!

Several walks for the site but would advice caution, especially with young children when crossing the road outside the site at various times due to boy racers in cars/motor bikes doing about 50 - 60 mph in a 30 mph area. You will usually here them before you see them ( load exhaust)! I was told they all meet up at the promenade down the hill from the site.

There is also airplane noise as site is near the airport but that was less of on issue than the boy racers mentioned above.

Usual high standards of a cc site. Toilet block immaculate. Lovely hot showers. I found this site to be lovely. We cycled along the wide promenade down by the waters edge. 5 mins away and had coffee and cake at the end of it. Getting into the city is a bit of a pain. 15 min walk to bus stop then 40 mins on the bus. The 16 takes longer. £4 each day ticket. Or catch the mini bus from site £8 return, limited times. Or taxi £13. 50. The wardens on this site are wonderful. We arrived on bhol weekend to find our booking had not gone through. Site full. Me ill. Sister to meet off train in an hour and they managed to find us a pitch.

This is our second visit within 9 months to the site and won't be our last. The pitches are well placed and the facilities are as you would expect from a Caravan Club site - clean and plentiful. We were there just before the Easter weekend and the site was only about half full. There is also a section of the site that is just for tents. The information room is well equipped with leaflets about the local area. Wardens were friendly enough.

The site is located just across the road from the Firth of Forth. Walks along the Firth of Forth are great for dogs and there is also a small dog walk on site.

We used the shuttle bus this time into the City Centre but did phone to check especially with having a dog with us. If you do have dogs and are going to use the shuttle please phone as they limit the number of dogs on each bus. Buses to the City Centre can be caught from along the road.

We would certainly recommend a visit to Mary King Close - the underground city on the Royal Mile. Dogs however are not allowed in.

The City Centre was a very busy place and probably not somewhere we would go again with the dogs but to meet up with friends and for walks along the Firth of Forth it certainly is a great site.

We spent a few nights here as a pre-Christmas break in Edinburgh.

Location

Well located as a base for Edinburgh, which is a few miles from the site. Your best bet is to take the shuttle from the site (£5 return) or get one of the many buses available (10 minutes walk from site).

Facilities

Excellent facilities with amenities blocks looking spotless throughout our stay.

Cost

Great value at £16 per night.

Reviewer: JayneBerry 20 reviews from this member

A fantastically located site, on the outskirts of the city but a short easy bus ride from all the sights, just a 10-minute walk to the bus stop. The area behind the site is a horrible run-down estate but the Firth of Forth is just yards from the entrance and its beach is fantastic and safe if you have dogs - or even if you don't. The on-site dog walk is a bit rubbish so the beach is the best bet for pooches.

There don't seem to be many good eateries on the doorstep however, or at least not that we found.

Wardens are very helpful, the site is clean and well-kept and a great base for exploring this beautiful city.

Reviewer: Camp chaos 12 reviews from this member

We stayed for 2 nights in the lovely little tent field. We felt v sorry for the caravanners who seemed to have no grassy areas to speak of.

The site was lovely and clean and pretty convenient for Edinburgh city centre. The local bus service was cheap and easy to use.

The only draw-back to the campsite was NO PLUG SOCKETS in the toilets. My hair was a nightmare without straighteners!

In the area: I would recommend Portobello beach and the chippy on the main road, parallel to the beach. Yummy fish!
