Why stay here ...

Edinburgh Club Site is an ideal location for your holiday getaway. Situated on the Firth of Forth, the caravan park provides easy access to Edinburgh, Europe's festival capital. You will be ideally located for the many attractions, both modern and historic, that this beautiful city has to offer.

Edinburgh is a friendly, cosmopolitan city. Edinburgh Club Site puts you within easy reach of some of its most famous landmarks. You can visit the castle which clings dramatically to a huge rock face (home to the Scottish Crown Jewels), walk down the Royal Mile to the Palace of Holyrood House (the Queen's official Scottish residence), stroll past the historic Scottish Parliament Building or enjoy the tranquil green expanse of Princes Street Gardens. The caravan site location also ensures that you're well placed for the famously fun summer festivals, seaside strolls, a round or two of golf, Edinburgh Zoo and an almost unlimited choice of restaurants, bars and other entertainment venues.

The site is only a stone’s throw away from the waterfront where campers can walk along the promenade of Cramond and, only a short drive away, visitors can enjoy the popular coastal suburb of Portobello with its pubs, restaurants and shops.

Pleasant Stay - No Shop

Stayed here early January. Very friendly reception, found a flat pitch, so no levelling blocks required (some have gentle slopes). We felt the site is missing a trick; there is no shop, you can't buy anything or order fresh bread for the next morning. The site is about 500 yards from nearest bus stop and then another 300 yards to the nearest store - so arrive with a full larder. There is a great Riverside walk 500 yards from the site (in the opposite direction to the shops and bus stop). The price of a bus ticket into the centre of Edinburgh is £1.70 - excellent value, plenty of buses. Would have given the site 5 stars for peace and quiet but it is close to the flight path of the airport, so it could be quieter. We live only 60 miles from the site but we will be using it again as it is an excellent location if you're having a night out in Edinburgh.

Fantastic Stay

I've just had a night here and it's been one of the best stays I've experienced. I had the warmest of welcomes and was given loads of information on the bus routes and fares. After pitching my caravan I took their advice and took the 10 min walk to the bus stop (number 27) and I paid £4 for a day ticket. The bus dropped me in George 4th Street and from there I had a really good walk around the city centre and stretched my calves walking up to the summit of Arthur's Seat. The site was superb, very well maintained, clean and the wash rooms were clean and warm. In the morning I went for another walk, this time turning left from the site and walking along the water front to Cramond Island. If you want walk to the island, which you can do at low tide, there are notices everywhere showing the times of the tide, sadly, I had missed the tide, so, couldn't get to the island. This site is definitely on my list of "must return" sites. Well done folks, see you again in the future.

Needs a facelift

Enjoyed a couple of nights here to visit the Christmas market. Wardens extremely nice and friendly. Us Scots won't pay the £6 return charge for the minibus service as we have free travel on the buses. About a twenty minute walk to the nearest bus stop and you can go straight to city centre. Buses are every 10 mins. We have been coming to this site for many years and it really is getting very tired and in need of a refurbish. Toilets don't flush well and certainly needs more shower cubicles.

What’s with the no lighting

I’m all for helping the environment but can I ask why there is no lighting on this site apart from at entrance and at the electric points. Anybody arriving after dark would have difficulty finding pitch numbers then filling up on water etc. For those of us who arrived in daylight, if you want to top up on water, take rubbish to bins or empty your Elsan after dark, then forget it. It’s pitch black you can’t see a thing. If you want to turn lights out to save power then I suggest doing this from 11pm till 7am. As it stands, the lights being out all the time, just make it very dangerous. You can’t use service points points after 4:30, that’s not convenient. I’m not very happy with my visit this time, some things need sorting.

Loved it.

On arrival at this site it was dark, we had never been here before and we were told to pick a pitch. Unfortunately there wasn’t much in the way of lights to guide us. Once we got set up and settled we loved it. The site is level and hard standing all the way around. The facilities were clean, if could do with a bit of a refurb. The staff are more than helpful. Coming up to Christmas it was not over full. Hogmanay however it was full to bursting. I have heard people complaining about the noise from planes coming into land at nearby airport, to us it was fascinating seeing them and kept us entertained. The minibus from the site into Edinburgh is a plus if you can walk. It dropped us at the “wrong end” of Princes Street to the Christmas market and with mobility problems was not good. When we went back to be picked up we waited nearly an hour and it never arrived. After that it was taxis. This is a site we will return to although not in our present unit,
