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.

    Such an amazing little campsite! Very clean and well kept. We had a disaster with our tent (new to camping) and the owner couldn’t have been more helpful! We upgraded to a hut (wigwam type) which finished our short stay off with happy faces! We will definitely be booking again..

    This is a very good site and was very well organised handling the Covid-virus situation very well.
    They had social distancing in place and lots of sanitiser stations at all toilets and the shop entrances.
    Well positioned site with level hard standing ,wide pitches,plenty space for large caravan awnings.Also good camping area for tents.
    They have rent 4 wooden pods which were all occupied when we visited end of July.
    Close to Ingliston park and ride for easy access to Edinburgh city (4miles from site).
    Also nice walks from the site along the river Almond and the Almond river feeder stream for the Union Canal.
    The children can have a good time in the play area and riding their bikes round the site.Highly recommended site.

Hello Alexander
Thanks for taking the time to review the site and for your feedback. Being in the countryside and great outdoors, sharing the space with other fauna is part and parcel, however they don't always acknowledge our requests to keep out of our tents so I do apologize on their behalf!

I am glad that otherwise you had an enjoyable stay.

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
