 We spent 3 fantastic nights here at Linwater while attending the Keep Scotland Beautiful awards ceremony.

We cannot fault this site in any way. Every part of it was spotless, lovely friendly staff, well stocked shop in reception area.

Check their website if you fancy a visit to the Edinburgh region as it is very close to a lot of areas and information sheet is given about site and all public transport etc on arrival which is very helpful.

What you see on their website is exactly as shown.

Pitch sizes are great as well.

Thank you once again for a great stay.

 This site was beautiful, peaceful, friendly and the amenities were spotless.

Was also fab to watch the planes overhead coming to and from the airport.

 In 40 years of camping / Caravanning this is one of the best kept sites I have been on.

Very welcoming staff, great facilities and such a chilled atmosphere.

So handy for Edinburgh and the surrounding area.

Approach road is a bit narrow but take your time and itís fine.

We live 20 minutes from here and we will be back.

 Great site with good access to Edinburgh. Bus stop is 20 minutes walk or the park and ride is a 10 minute drive.

The site is well maintained with big pitches, clean facilities and a decent shop.

Nice countryside walks around the site too.

Excellent base - would stay again!

Reviewer: Breeze 4 reviews from this member

 Although I only stayed the 1 night, I would happily come back again. My arrival was a bit later than planned, but I was still met with a warm welcome, and handed a plan of the site. I had a dog with me and asked about where to exercise her. There was a nice area just off site which was easy to access.

I didnít use the kitchen area, but it looked ok as I went passed, the toilets/showers were very clean and plentiful. There are fully serviced hard standing pitches, some with just EHU and then just grass pitches with no services, so the site caters for all needs. I couldnít get the free Wi-Fi to work, I was near the office too, but that could have been my iPad!

The only downside for me was the noise of the planes overhead. But being near the airport you have to expect it. However, it did stop overnight. Overall the site was fairly quiet, with a no noise policy after 10pm (I think it is) which was adhered to by all.

The site was easy enough to get to, but the road to get there was in a shocking state of repair, so care was needed. I know this is beyond the owners control, itís just to give others a heads up.

Being a solo female traveller I felt quite safe there.

 Great site very well looked after, the pitch is of a good size.

Toilet block is immaculate and is cleaned on a regular basis, good size kitchen if needed.

Unable to find fault with this site, my only complaint is not with the site but with the state of the roads leading to the site.

The local authority need to repair the road, but until then take care if your pulling a caravan.

 Excellent site, managers were very accommodating, couldn't recommend their services enough.

Small indoor games area for children, camper kitchen, 2 electric hobs, microwave and fridge for your use.

Well stocked shop, spotless WC/Showers, grounds immaculate, good sized pitch.

We would definitely stay again if traveling through. 100% 5*

Reviewer: KeldaMacFeegle 3 reviews from this member

 This was our first camping trip so we chose a campsite with plenty of facilities and close to home should it all go horribly wrong. The site was easy to find and there was a friendly welcome when we arrived.

The previous occupants of the pitch had left quite a lot of litter and cigarette ends and these hadnít all been picked up but they cleaned up quickly when I pointed this out.

The showers and toilets were kept very clean and were modern and bright. Thankfully we didnít need to use the indoor kitchen because the weather was good but we went in to have a look and it had everything you would expect.

The surrounding countryside was lovely and the walking nearby was very picturesque.

Not noisy in the evenings, but the airport is nearby and you do hear the planes taking off and landing from fairly early in the morning. This didnít bother me, but it might if you are a light sleeper and like a lie in.

It was a great site to help me get to grips with camping and I would definitely visit again.

Reviewer: Wee van lady 2 reviews from this member

 Friendly and welcoming staff. Requested close to facilities pitch and got the closest one possible.

Barrier code gate out of hours gave a sense of security. So close to Rathough Climbing centre and also to the Pentlands National park for walking.

Campers kitchen is such a useful commodity, and a pleasant and sociable shared space.

Shower block was warm and had plenty of hot water, even though I was late heading for a shower.

Downside of that is they were requiring cleaning, that said it appeared to have been one grubby camper that managed to have mud over the floor.
