Linwater Caravan Park: Level pitches with plenty of space in between

General

  • Quiet site five miles from Edinburgh Airport
  • Shopping locally at Livingston Designer Outlet
  • Next to a country park and the Union Canal

East Calder is calling – and how easily accessible it all is. The county's Linwater Caravan Park is within a five-mile drive of Edinburgh Airport (nip up for the weekend, perhaps?) and is next to the trunk roads of the M8 and M9 – thus making it straightforward to stop over here on your way to and fro north or south.

But you'd also be well placed to stay a bit longer. Linwater's in a countryside location, right next to Almondell and Calderwood Country Park and the Union Canal (for tiptop towpath strolls) and is also a short drive from the Pentland Hills Regional Park. The Edinburgh International Climbing Arena is only a mile away.

All at Linwater is ably run by Katie and Alaistair, who've added a toilet block including a disabled loo, showers, a dishwashing area, laundry facilities and waste disposal for tourers and motorhomes.

  • Liked: 

    Great cheerful greeting everytime i come and stay here. I like that they have a camping kitchen where i can leave food i don't need so others can use it if they want. The bathrooms are always clean, the site is always peaceful at night and its only a short walk to the bus to Edinburgh.
    On pitch water supplies are great so there is no need to fill up at the motorhome service area if you have a long enough hose.
    I stay here 2-4 times a year and i will be back in 2023

Local attractions

Linwater Caravan Park's locale means you're well set for both countryside and city days, or to break up a journey on your way north or south.

Around the area, a mile away in a disused quarry is the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena, with the biggest indoor climbing wall in the world (well worth tackling for the boasting rights gained for afterwards, one might suggest). The towpath walks of the Union Canal are nearby and the shows and exhibitions of the Royal Highland Showground are within four miles.

You can also easily drive to the Kelpies, the biggest horsey structures on the planet, and to the Falkirk Wheel, the boat lift connecting the Union and the Forth and Clyde canals.

Must see

  • Edinburgh Zoo (6.7 miles)
  • Linlithgow Palace (7.9 miles)
  • Royal Scottish Academy (9.1 miles)
