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.

    The site is well laid out with plenty of space between pitches. The ground wasn’t too muddy despite the heavy rain. The campers kitchen was a nice addition with a microwave and a warm, sheltered place to do your washing up. Great location for heading into Edinburgh to enjoy city sightseeing.

    Disliked: 

    Showers were quite small and not the most powerful albeit clean and hot.

From the manager...

Hello Stephanie

Thank you for taking the time to post a review and for the information in it. I am truly grateful for your feedback both all of the positives and on our shower rooms a. We have received comments like this before which has driven our decision making on improvements for the site. Last year we had plans drawn up to renovate our amenity block and extend the size of our shower rooms when we refurbish the block. This was planned to start this winter, however sadly will have to wait another year due to our forced COVID closure. We do hope that you will return to the site again, perhaps after we have completed our refurbishments to see how they look!

Best Wishes
Katie

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)
