Visit Beautiful Edinburgh Club Campsite

This trip took us to the Caravan and Motorhome Edinburgh Club Campsite for a visit to the capital and historic city of Scotland.

About the Site

Edinburgh Club campsite is located on the Firth of Forth and just a short stroll to the waterfront. It’s ideally located for the many attractions, both modern and historic, that is on offer in the beautiful city of Edinburgh.

We set off from Liverpool heading North up the M6 motorway with a journey time of around 4 hours. From the M6 we should have continued on the A74(M) and the A702 but the daring explorer in me decided to veer off the route and take the A7. Now I’m sure this route would be nice on a warm sunny morning or afternoon but probably wasn’t the best idea on a rainy dark night.

Arriving around 10pm we stayed over in the dedicated late arrivals part opposite reception. We’d called in advance just to check that there was somewhere for late arrivals to park and was pleased to find there was also electric hook up. 

The site is pleasant and the reception staff were friendly. The sign at the entrance I thought was quite retro reminding me of a holiday camp sign from the 1960’s, in a pleasant positive way.  The site is large with 156 pitches with 142 of them hard standing.


The pitches were hardstanding with plenty of space each with an accessible electric hook up point. Throughout the site there was plenty of shrubs and greenery that made for a pleasant environment and added to the overall ambience of the site.

Decent Sized Pitches

The toilet and shower facilities were of a good standard and easily accessible and reflected the overall quality of the site. There was dog walking and a play area for children. As mentioned previously there’s a late arrivals facility that’s great, if like us, your commitments meant you couldn’t set off till later in the day. There was a taxi service available from the site to Edinburgh city centre with a very friendly and informative driver.

A great site for visiting Edinburgh

The cost for the pitch was £32.50 per night and included a hard standing pitch with electric and the use of showers and toilets on site.

Things To Do
  • The purpose of our visit was to visit the Festival Theatre in Edinburgh for a play that we had booked. The Theatre is lovely and modern with great facilities and we really enjoyed the show.


    Edinburgh Castle – Obviously a visit to Edinburgh wouldn’t be complete without visiting the castle. An informative visit with lots to see.

  • Edinburgh’s oldest neighbourhood, dating back to medieval times: these small streets are lined with wool shops, pubs and historical monuments.

  • Stretch of road connecting Edinburgh Castle with Holyrood Palace, the Kings residence in Scotland.
  • We had a tasteful Indian meal in a restaurant called “Mother India Cafe”, certainly one to consider if your looking for a pre-theatre meal.

 This site is well maintained and clean. and in an ideal location for visiting the wonderful city of Edinburgh. I’d happily stay here again if I wanted to visit the city.
