 Beautiful site, well maintained with an excellent dog walking facility ideal for the first and last walk of the day.

Very helpful and friendly staff from reservation to occupancy.

I would definitely stay here again 👍

 After a long hit drive we eventually made our way to the site. We were stuck in traffic so called ahead as it was edging towards 6pm which is the latest you can check in. Arrived to the main entrance to find it a bit symbolic with cars parked all over the place. As none seemed to have caravans etc, and I had never been to the park before, I figured they must just be parked. I drove up to the reception area to be met with a woman shouting aggressively at me. This then set my dogs off who were in the back of the car. I put the window down and asked her to repeat what she was saying. Over the barking of my dogs I realised she was saying that I had jumped the queue. Confused I asked what queue? She said "Can you not see the queue of cars". As I said earlier there was a few cars randomly parked.

No signs anywhere and certainly no queue. Safe to say not off to the best start. I was hurried in while being told I was now "blocking everyone" quick turn around and followed a guy on golf buggy to my site. "That's your area there" he said and off he went. Carefully reversed my caravan in and unhitched only for a different guy also in a golf cart to turn up and tell me I would need to move. I asked why and he explained I was about 5' out of my area. Anyway after moving we were finally set up.

Very big and busy park. However it was clean and well laid out. Toilet block clean and a nice dog walk area which stretched round edge of park. Park is in a good location with a small town just up the road and very close proximity to Edinburgh and surrounding areas. Nice park to visit.

We may have just caught them at a busy time not sure but we seen the crazy lady the next day and she was very nice then. It pricey but I'm sure we would return again.

 Not a cheap site at nearly £33 for hardstand & EHU. But it's a convenient site for exploring East Lothian, Musselburgh & Portobello are worth a wander too; there are other sites much closer to Edinburgh for the sight seeing.

We liked the warm welcome, the flowering shrubs & many bedding plants, the shelter from the wind. It's a huge site but seems smaller because it's divided up by hedges into separate areas. Being on hardstand meant we had a defined pitch; we've stayed here on grass before and they're less well defined pitches. We had to pitch so that our back door faced the same way as everyone else's.

The WiFi is free but you do have to log back in frequently. The site website cites the sea views, but these views are largely screened by trees. The dog walk was handy, but every day there were several big new piles of dog poo in the same area, despite there being plenty of bins to put it in and the long list of rules. Never a queue for the 3 showers, the toilet block was never closed for cleaning.

We had bad neighbours, which could happen at any site: two huge dogs barked constantly & aggressively when anyone was outside so we had to put up a screen to be able to sit out, the owners made no attempt to control them. Another neighbour used our EHU socket with our cable hanging on it, we had to trail our cable far off, so it was run over several times by the Big Dog owner driving over the grass in his work van rather than use the track.

The site served its purpose for this trip.

 Was happy with site you won't see better, staff brilliant and helpful, only thing that let's it down is the the dogs that are not on leads???? The rules say dogs must be on lead, but seen wardens going past and they don't seem to bother, apart from this it would be 10 sorry

 We are caravanners but decided to book a hexi pod while through for Letís Rock Scotland. Beautiful site, Central location, clean toilets.

A special mention to the wardens, harassed to death as busy weekend. Keep up the great hard work you do, and are very pleasant with it! Also special mention to the separate taxi service, completely on time and pleasant with it.

We only had 2 nights, loved it, will be back soon with our van. Thank you. X

 A minor quibble. There needs to be a sign off National Cycle Route 76 on the road below the site by the museum.

Friendly welcome. Escorted by golf cart to our pitch, which gave us a private section. Picnic bench next to tent. Showers hot (but light over showers broken - reception pleased to be told. ) Small amount of traffic noise but other wise very quiet on site.

Good value for money and useful location close to Edinburgh.

 Having stayed at Drum Mohr two years ago in a caravan while visiting the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and having had a good experience doing so, we opted to do the same this year, this time with a tent. We were able to book a pitch on the same day as we needed it, knowing we'd have to check in by 6pm. Finding ourselves delayed beyond 6pm we rang the site and were very helpfully told they would wait for us, as we were not far away. On arrival the staff were very helpful and friendly. Not sure why some people on here find them rude and unfriendly; not our experience at all!

The site is very well maintained, the toilet and shower blocks very clean and the shop carries all manner of things you might need.

We used the train from Wallyford station in preference to the bus to get into Edinburgh; it is a rather longer walk than to the bus stop, but if you time it well (and take a torch for the rather dark return walk if late!) it takes only 10 mins straight into Waverley Station.

A very good campsite. We will be returning!

 We booked this site as it was convenient for our visit to the Edinburgh Tattoo. When we arrived after a long drive we went into the reception to find one of the wardens having what we would call' a bit of a moment' and we were asked to wait in our car. One of the wardens came out and said that they would show us to our pitch. When we asked how we should position our van, the warden was quite rude in their answer. One Foot in the Grave & Fawlty Towers sprung to mind.

The site itself was OK, amenities clean with plenty of hot water. One of the downsides was there didn't seem to be proper marked out pitches & units were very very close to each other in some areas and if we hadn't got a mover we wouldn't have been able to get off our pitch on departure day. If we were visiting the area again, we wouldn't stay there as first impressions last.

 We booked an 8m pitch for our large tent at this site near Edinburgh.

The pitches were well-maintained, although the ground was quite stony in places. Each group of pitches had water taps, electricity and numerous bins for recycling. Pitches were grouped nicely, and different areas separated by hedges.

In general the site was fine, but we thought some of the facilities were looking a bit tired. The showers were free, but not particularly powerful or hot. The washing up facilities were adequate. The children's playground could definitely do with an update - some of the equipment has seen better days.

We were lucky to get a large pitch in high season - their website now states no tents over 5m in July or August. When I queried this with the staff, they explained they would honour the booking but would be unlikely to accept a large tent in the future, which I think is a shame.

 As we were so happy with the service provided last year at Easter we decided to return here again for the Sportif International Judo Competition and Camp that was held in Meadowbank Stadium a mere 8 miles away. Another fantastic week in Edinburgh area and the usual high standards of Drummohr were there again.

Clean and warm toilet/shower facilities. Plenty of hot water. Friendly staff who left you to enjoy yourselves but always polite and helpful when needed. This was our second time here and hopefully won't be our last.

Fantastic site which I would recommend to anyone.
