We chose this site for a mid-week break to Edinburgh as an alternative to staying in the city. We booked one of the static caravans available for hire and these were grouped together in their own area of around twenty or so. They all looked modern and as far as I could see, the only difference between premium and standard... More

Spent from 03/04/15 to 05/04/15 at this site having been twice previously. Directed to plot A212 and became stuck in boggy ground immediately. Other motorhomes and caravans also sinking some on piles of bricks to stop further sinking. These persons told us the park management were aware of the problem but no alternative plots(eg hard standing) we're available. I spoke... More

Stayed Friday and Saturday night. Found the whole experience very enjoyable, not sure if I would want to be here at the height of the season when it apparently can become extremely busy, but that is personal not a reflection of the site. We stayed in one of the heated Wigwams, masses of room, kettle, microwave , extra heater which... More

Caravan OK, cleaning leaves a lot to be desired, kettle still grubby after cleaning (was changed promptly by office), tea pot still half full from previous occupant, no toilet roll (be prepared), dishes & glasses must be washed before use (great start to the holiday). Dog hairs on the cusions (we have a dog, definitely not allowed on furniture) No... More

Both my husband and I struggled to find a flushed toilet both in the Gents and Ladies Toilets and made visiting them an unpleasant experience. Perhaps it says more about the visitors than the Site Cleaning Staff, but a large notice on the wall of each cubicle is urgently required asking people to flush the toilet every time they visit...

Stayed here for just 2 nights in a wigwam was a really nice friendly stay and very helpful. The reception does close early at this time of year but late comers you do feel welcomed too. The campsite could do with some more lights. Would return again in the future.

Stayed here only for one night on the way through but we'll be back. What a fabulous place! Really friendly and helpful staff, good pitches, great facilities ( that are warm even in the winter!) And a bar/restaurant where the staff could not have been nicer. Food was fantastic, particularly the burger.

We stayed here in a motor home over new year, great pitch, hard standing and level. The staff were very helpful in fact they couldn't have been better, likewise the showers were lovely, clean and heated. The bus into Edinburgh is right outside the entrance and at only 3.50 for on/ off all day a real bargain. In fact we... More

Stayed here during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Considerably cheaper than anywhere else during this period assuming you don't mind braving the Scottish summer. Nice spacious campsite with plenty of space. Good transport link to Edinburgh with regular buses all day from the park entrance, which we used daily for the Fringe. The campsite has a small games room and shop... More
