General

  • Quiet campsite 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 from Edinburgh Airport (nip up for the weekend, we say), and is next to the trunk roads of the M8 and M9 – we also say 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 (we say 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.

    Linwater was a fantastic and extremely well maintained site with level hard standing pitches with electric hook up.
    The owners were very friendly and nothing was to much trouble for them.
    Showers and wash rooms were spotless, kept at a warm temperature a pleasure to use at this time of year.
    The shop onsite was very handy and well stocked.
    I would use Linwater again and recommend it very highly.

    The owners are very friendly. The information for on site, and getting about is first class. Good pitch, and very good washroom facilities.

    Disliked: 

    The road outside the site is a bit bumpy, and perhaps some more lights on site to see the way to the washrooms at night.

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, say we). 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)

Cycle routes
