Blinkbonny Wood is a mixed woodland on the edge of the Lammermuir Hills in East Lothian. We are 3 miles from the picturesque village of Gifford, and 30 mins drive from Edinburgh.
We offer wild camping. The facilities are minimal - a compost toilet and a fire pit. The tent pitches are five minutes walk from the gate and no cars are allowed in the woodland. Booking is essential as we have only five pitches.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Blinkbonny is situated on the edge of the Lammermuirs in East Lothian. It is close to Longyester - nearest post code EH41 4PL but do not rely on this once you get to Longyester.
To drive: Haddington is the nearest large town and is close to the A1 expressway. From Haddington follow signs to Gifford. On coming to Gifford turn right at the church and continue through the village. On leaving the village take the first left just before Gifford Golf Club, toward Longyester. Continue along this road for about three miles, passing Yester farm and the sign to Castle Park Golf Club. Turn right at Longyester farm, and continue for about half mile and you will have arrived at Blinkbonny. For sat nav users - please don't rely on the postcode to get you to the wood - it is the nearest postcode and will only get you to Longyester. If you come to a telephone box you missed the right turn at Longyester farm.
