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.

Welcoming & Friendly Site

Lamont, Alex - 04/05/2022

This is our 3rd stay at Linwater. We find it’s an easy site to get to from Queensferry Crossing and your only a 20min drive to a park&ride if you are visiting Edinburgh. It’s a very pleasant walk along the Union Canal to Ratho where there is a very nice Cafe.

Final night of our tour

Hannaford, Ali - 25/04/2022

5

We wanted somewhere close to the airport and the return depot for the motorhome we'd hired and this was perfect. There was even the opportunity to leave any unwanted food in the communal kitchen as they donate to a local foodbank and also have a sign saying help yourself for other campers - a perfect solution to avoid any food waste. Very friendly people and a great site to visit with some lovely walks on the doorstep so we maximised the holiday feeling until the end!
