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.

Absolutely brilliant site!

Hume, Ben - 04/08/2022

5

Our stay here was everything we were looking for in a campsite near Edinburgh. The facilities were great, all clean and it was nice to have a proper shower to use! it is situated really close to the park and ride so we were able to take the tram in everyday to the city centre saving so much money on fuel and parking etc.We did arrive a bit after 9PM, but the duty guard was really helpful and friendly. in fact, all of the staff were very friendly and able to answer any questions we had. Plus the dog was very, very cute!The only thing that was a slight bind was only having one washing machine available to use. Usually we don't need to use a washing machine, but we were only able to pack a certain amount of clothing for everyone this time round and a lot of the camper vans were using the machine/dryer.Definitely will be returning here for holidays to Scotland in the future.

We had a fantastic stay, we had wanted 4 nights stay but could only book 3 nights on 1 pitch then 1 night on another. On arrival they were able to swap sites around to save us moving after the 3 initial nights.Great site, clean facilities, couldnt of asked for more, everyone extremely welcoming and friendly

Nice, clean place, hard to find faults.

Lewis, Laura - 03/08/2022

Grounds are nice and absolutely spotless, decent space per pitch, much bigger than I expected. Amenities are brilliant, showers/toilets spotlessly clean, nothings broken, nothings missing… other than a kettle and maybe a pot or two in the kitchen/tv area. I think we dragged everything but the kitchen sink with us and ended up not using half of it. Here and there there’s items other people have left behind, which is a huge help if you’ve forgotten something. There’s a little shop which, for me, doesn’t have a huge range, but it does perfectly fine for 5 days, and local takeaways deliver if you fancy a spot of pizza instead. Nice quiet place, fresh eggs available in the wee shop which are the best I’ve ever eaten! Very friendly staff too. My one and only thing that was a bit of an issue for me was trying to get the tent pegs in the ground, it’s a bit on the tough side, next time I’ll bring a little hammer or mallet.

Good site, all facilities very clean and well maintained.

Stevenson, Karen - 03/08/2022

The 2 shower cubicles are not adequate for the number of guests on site. There was a very long queue in both male female blocks when we visited on the last two occasions. An extra cubicle would be a great improvement.
