 This campsite is a delight, a jewel int he crown.

The views out onto the Forth are stunning. The site staff where extremely welcoming and informative.

The facilities were all immaculately clean considering the amount of campers.

The dog walking routes are some of the best I have seen. The pitches were well laid out and tidy.

There is plenty of places locally to get groceries etc.

I would recommend this site to anyone who wishes a relaxing weekend.

 Lovely site plenty of space view of bass rock. Good facilities helpful staff. Beware strong winds wind out awning was destroyed in the night !

30 mins walk to Dunbar nice little town and harbour- fresh lobsters for sail in hut near castle harbour. 10 mins walk to white sands beach and lighthouse- lovely.

Train 40 mins to Edinburgh also bus to north Berwick well worth a visit. Boat trip to bass rock brilliant.

Reviewer: Ymecha 3 reviews from this member

 This exposed site is totally unsuitable for tents. We had our own tent badly damaged by incredibly strong winds. We witnessed caravan awnings and other tents being ripped apart and people driving away leaving their destroyed tents behind.

We are seasoned campers, having camped on most Scottish islands and the highlands but its fair to say this site is the worst we have ever stayed on.

The wardens did little to help newbies and a young couple whos tent was ruined said the experience has put them off camping for life sadly.

The facilities were clean and tidy.

Reviewer: Helen.harrison2 22 reviews from this member

 This site is situated almost on the beach, stunning views and a short walk from a bay with a white sand beach.

The site description does say that it's a windy site, and we had to take our awning down after the first night because of this, as did several others.

The toilet block is clean with enough showers, sinks and toilets however despite us being there in April when the temperatures were cool the doors were hooked open almost all the time meaning the building was cold when you came out of the shower, maybe as Scotland still had Covid restrictions in place?

We used the washing machine whilst there without problems. There is a children's play area on site, but its in the far corner of the site.

You can walk along the coast into Dunbar, unfortunately the golf course is between the site and the sea so you first have to walk in the opposite direction to get to the coastal walk.

The local area is mainly flat and cycling friendly.

We caught the train into Edinburgh and back for the day and parked the car near the train station for free. There's also a parkrun in Dunbar.

If we were to visit the site again it would be in the summer months with less likelihood of wind.

 An excellent campsite, we were shown to a perfect spot and guided on the campsite facilities.

It's an ideal way to explore the beautiful East Coast or just to relax in lovely quiet surroundings.

Will definitely return 😀👍🏕🏍

 The site was very well run with the wardens very helpful and ready to assist if any problems arose.

The splendid views over the firth of forth with the Bass Rock nearby was a delight.

The bin area was always tidy and the toilets were exceptionally clean at all times.

 Reasonable site and conveniently situated for Dunbar - a short drive away.

Views on much of the site were blocked by vegetation / trees, with the top row being best for having a chance of a view.

The single track road to the site continues on to a couple of car park viewing points which is worth a trip to. Spoiled a little by the continuous belching of the cement factory chimney in the background I have to say though.

Dunbar was a pleasant place to visit - good shops, cafes etc and there is the museum at John Muir's birthplace which I highly recommend.

Reviewer: Wirralgirl 2 reviews from this member

 Very friendly and helpful site assistant, explained the different facilities clearly.

No toilets or showers open due to C-19 restrictions. However the cost was not reduced, 60 for 2 nights was expensive.

Great views, walks and a beach nearby.
