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.

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!

Superb tidy well run site with usual odd Caravan Club rules but very convenient for Edinburgh city. Bus 10 min walk away £3. 50 day rider ticket gets you anywhere you want to go. In the information office, found it rather odd that that there were no leaflets available on Edinburgh Castle, being the most noticeable landmark in the city !

Not your typical CC site. Its set up to get lots of people into the great city of Edinburgh and it does a great job. Ok so it a large grassy car park but its run well and is spotless. The foreign guests can cause some confusion with random parking. Use the shuttle bus you skin flints! its so easy and drops you of right in the centre. Big super market close and a long cycle trail and dog walk nearby.

We've used this site before and love it. The staff leave you alone to enjoy your stay. Often busy. If not full. As fred used to say' Book early'

This was our first visit to this site mainly to visit friends. It's a large well laid out site with a tent area and an on site dog walk. Facilities are typical of all Caravan Club sites. Wardens were friendly and helpful. Pitches were of a good size and flat. There is a small children's play area.

Site is adjacent to the Firth of Forth with lovely walks either on the beach when the tide is out or on the walkway. There is a cafe along the walkway that sells lovely cakes.

This site is ideal for getting to see the sites of Edinburgh and a bus from the reception takes you right in to the centre. This is something we will look at doing on our next visit. Highly recommended.

Reviewer: Deebond 2 reviews from this member

This is the first Caravan Club Site we've stayed on. We are used to Australian sites so it was a bit different for us, with reasonable sized sites, lots of rules, not sure of the logic of the rule for having the van in a certain position relative to the site marker, unless it's safety. Speedy evacuation. Which is probably more relevant in Australia where we have bush fires! It cannot be faulted for facilities, and we were there for a specific purpose, not the (non existent) view, and we did find the noise of the planes annoying at first but didn't notice it after a while.

We stayed two nights and would stay again if we had reason to be in Edinburgh.
