We stayed here for 4 nights in August 2018.

Not much can be added to all the previous reviews for this site.

As expected, the site was very busy but it never really felt that way – apart from the vans in the overnight parking area awaiting the next day to be able to book in!

Others have commented on the “vibe” of the site & we concur with that.

Our main reason to visit was to attend the Military Tattoo and the bus service was ideal for getting in & out. There are two stops close by, both about 15 minutes walk away. One takes you directly to the centre – the other one is via. The north part of the city coming in from Leith. It is one price per trip at £1. 70 although an all day rover ticket is available at £4. No change is given on the bus, so ensure you have hoarded your coinage before hand!

The promenade walk is close by and is ideal for dog walking or cycling.

Whilst we might complain about the cost per night [£34], the site was convenient for us for a specific event, so we had to “bite the bullet”, as they say!

Came to Edinburgh for tattoo & festival. The site is beautiful and exceptionally clean. All the Wardens work so hard to keep the site perfect - they never stop. I have to say the level of customer service is above and beyond (Warden lady took the time out to phone a dentist for me to go too and talked me through how to get there). Well done, I'll be back.

Very expensive tent camping but a Convinth location for Edinburgh 10 min walk to a frequent bus service.

Tents are put in a corner out of the way of caravanners and vehicles are not allowed next to tents unlike the caravans. Grass was also unkept compared to the rest of the site.

Wardens was friendly but the layout of the site suggests that tents are tolerated rather than welcomed.

This is a great site with some top notch facilities. There are 2 excellent toilet blocks, one on each side of the site, a sensible bit of planning sees one is always open while the other is being meticulously cleaned. The gray/black waste disposal points are first class and located at the toilet blocks. The pitches are big and you don’t feel cramped in any way. There’s a little shop for essentials, a great information room and bike lockers too. It’s really handy for the city with buses every 15 minutes or so and a minibus takes you from the reception area into the city centre regularly for only £6 return, it is only an 8 seat minibus and is therefore often full but the service buses do a similar job for £2 less, you just need to take a short walk to the bus stop.

The staff couldn’t be more helpful too. The only downside is that the site is situated directly under the flight path for Edinburgh airport and they start at around 05:15hrs. They do however stop before midnight so you’ll get at least 5-6 hours sleep.

Just come back from this site it's OK and facilities are good and clean. On our arrival we were told about problems with bike being stolen at night and was advised to put them in the lock up provided, I declined as our bikes are locked to the bike rack with lock clamps. There was an attempted to steal our bikes around 1am which woke us up and the thieves fled. This apparent has been happening for sometime so for this I do feel the site should review the security.

Super site. Very large but doesn't feel it due to separate sections. Two toilet blocks, one at each side and one always open when other closed for cleaning. Very close to promenade which gives lovely walk to village of Cramond with its delightful marina and tea shops. It's about a 40 minute walk from the site. Buses to city centre are about a ten minute walk away and a day rover ticket is £4. Or you can get minibus from the site for £6 return. Apart from city centre, make sure you visit the Royal Yacht Britannia. Tour takes about 2 hours and you get audio tour guide.

I left a review for this site a year ago and still find little to fault it.

An addition to their facilities since then, they now have lockers for secure storage of bicycles whilst on site.

Pitches are large, in fact we were on the same pitch as last year.

Showers and toilets all kept to a high standard.

TV reception was excellent and although I never used it I believe there are aerial attachments on the EHU posts.

Phone reception was also good (Virgin)

Buses into Edinburgh are a fair step away from the site but we used the minibus service from outside reception, at £6 return it's worth every penny.

Some might find the aircraft noise off-putting but it didn't bother us.

Very nice site with some road and aircraft noise, if you can put up with that it's worth a visit.

We loved this site, its perfect for a city break. Not only are you only a bus ride from the centre of the city there is plenty to do in the immediate area.

Go left on Marine Drive (walk or cycle) and you arrive at Crammond, a beautiful village with a causeway out to an island. Continue on Cycle 1 and in a couple of miles you arrive at the chocolate box conservation village of Dalmeny, from where its a short ride down to the Forth Road Bridge. Now closed to traffic you can still cycle over, or bring your car and park in the car park and walk over.

In the opposite direction on Marine Drive you can cycle the 5 miles to Leith, see the Royal Yacht Britannia and sample the delights of Leith seafront.

The site is immaculate, its a busy site, nearly impossible to get a weekend pitch we found, despite this the wardens keep the whole site bright as a button.

Showers are perfect - we love great showers and this site has some of the best. No dreaded push button, plenty of hot water and decent water pressure in a clean and heated block - fabulous.

The wardens do have a locked cycle shed where you can put you bikes away safely overnight, just take them over early evening and then you can get them back out in the morning.

Good C&MC wifi signal across the site.

Yes you can hear the aircraft arriving at Edinburgh airport as you are under the flight path- we found after an hour we didn't notice them at all - but then everyone reacts differently. Its no worse than many sites with road noise etc - don't let it put you off this is a brilliant site to see everything the coast and the city has to offer.

Beautiful site with stunning views over the Forth of Forth where you can walk along the promenade to a lovely village calked Cramond. It is well worth walking past the pub along the river to see the small waterfall. Campsite is roughly 10 minute walk to bus stop for service into Edinburgh. Very friendly site staff and really helpful, facilities are spotless. We will definitely be visiting again soon.

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.
