Linwater Caravan park is a beautiful family run park located to the West of Edinburgh that provides top quality self catering and camping accommodation all year round.

Its location means you can enjoy central Scotland from one base reaching places like the world famous Kelpies, Linlithgow Palace, Forth Bridges and iconic Edinburgh Castle within an hour.

The site is located 4 miles from Ingliston Park and Ride for regular trams to Edinburgh; 2 miles from Kirknewton train station for direct trains to Glasgow and three miles from the major M8/M9 interchange for road access to the North and West of Scotland.

There are 60 large touring pitches with 16 Amp Electric hookups and taps; self catering luxury lodges with bright open plan living space and budget friendly modern static caravans, all less than three years old. For the campers you will find an immaculately presented amenity block with electric showers, toilets, privacy wash cubicles and a small launderette. There is a heated indoor campers kitchen with pot wash area, cookers, microwave and TV as well as takeaway menus for on site delivery and a book/game/DVD library.

When you arrive you will be welcomed by our friendly team in the reception where you will find lots of tourist information and a small grocery store, perfect for those little essentials.

Centrally located on the park is the children's play area which has plenty of space for the kids to wind off steam. There is also a dog walk which provides access to the many walking and cycle routes surrounding the local Almondell Country Park and Union Canal.

Great location and facilities

Stewart, Craig - 09/01/2023

5

I really enjoyed this site for the ease of check in and friendliness. The local area is filled with nice walks and parks which is ideal for dogs. On site the toilets and showers were always clean and maintained. There’s a little shop but we didn’t use it during our stay. Each pitch has water supply and grey water draining which is great.Highly recommend it if you’re staying near Edinburgh.

All I would say on this site is that the waste water on our pitch was a bit far away and could have been stated when booking

Between Christmas & New Year 2022

Kaye, Andrew - 03/01/2023

Very clean and tidy site with lovely washing up facilities and a TV room for campers , if required. Fairly good access to walks along the nearby canal. Also a short drive to the park and ride at Ingliston for a day trip into Edinburgh. Peaceful at the time we were there - well appointed hard standing space with combined electric hook up and water point.Liked the information regarding the campsites ‘green’ aimsOverall a very well located campsite with great facilities, in the country but close to Edinburgh - great stuff..

Site was lovely. Walk to bus stop is a bit hairy. We had to be in Edinburgh at 7.45am and walked to and from bus stop in the dark. Was a bit worrying, but we wore high viz.

Idea is there but improvements needed!

Liford, D - 29/12/2022

Only reason we had to drop down to average was due to getting our campervan stuck in the pitch. The facilities and staff were great and really enjoyed the hot water for a shower and everything was well maintained even on Christmas Day! However to not have the pitch set up with the right foundations, that a campervan became buried and incapable of getting out. Wasn’t ideal for Christmas Day I’m afraid. Only dread to think how a heavier vehicle would cope. The loose gravel stones is just not well thought out and having soft foundations under them. In addition the amount of stones that end up in the vehicle from the shoes carrying them in. Also the water point was too far away for us to fill up our van with the hose length we had, (we would’ve asked for one but after the first panic of being stuck, we just left and forgot about it).

Everything and more

Houwers, Ingrid - 27/12/2022

This was our very first stay at Linwater and we cannot wait to come back. Myself and my dog hike everywhere with our Berlingo microcamper setup, but this was our first time in Scotland. Linwater was the perfect location for what we had in mind, close to the Pentlands and other closer nature walks in the area as the weather was a bit rough.The facilities were spotless; hot limitless shower, great camp kitchen with entertainment there, and I loved the swap out kitchen! Laundry room had a washer and dryer which was perfect to get some of the hiking gear cleaned and dried ready for another wet day!There was maintenance work ongoing in the day time, which was clearly advertised and great to see. I can really imagine these improvements keeping the place in the tip top condition it was already in!Staff at Linwater were super helpful and kind and went above and beyond to ensure everything was perfect. Hands down, Linwater is up there with some of the nicest places we have stayed at
