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.

Great pitches, good facilities, very good location.09/24/2020

    I thought this was a really lovely site. The staff / owners were friendly, the toilet block was clean and it was a very well laid out place. The hedges between pitches were a nice touch, gave you the feeling of more privacy and the pitch sizes were very generous. Set away from any main roads so nice and quiet at night, and seemed like it had a good little play area for the campers who had kids. Really nice site, I'd definitely stay again.

    Lovely small site. Well maintained and the shower/toilet block was clean and easily accessible.
    Near amenities should you need them. A lovely walk just off site along the Union canal. Certainly a site we would like to return to.

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 (10.9 kilometres)
  • Linlithgow Palace (12.7 kilometres)
  • Royal Scottish Academy (14.7 kilometres)
