Zeer drukke camping, zeker in augustus Tattoo Edinburgh en French. Busdienst naar Edinburgh vlakbij.

Grote camping in een parkachtige omgeving. Ligt ca. 7 km van centrum van Edinburgh. Zeer rustig gelegen. Sanitair grote ruimtes met douche, toilet en wastafel, die keurig schoon waren. Wifi duur en werd ons afgeraden; advies zoek wifi punt in de stad. Receptie zeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Prijs per nacht is zeer stevig, maar het is wel een fijne camping om Edinburgh te bezoeken.

A large and efficiently run site, whose main virtue is that it\'s well placed for getting to the centre of Edinburgh by bus. But don\'t be misled by the claim that buses pass the camp gate; they do, but the gate is nearly half a mile from the actual camping area. Sanitary blocks were fine in July, when the site was half-empty, but I can imagine they would be hard pressed during Edinburgh Festival time when the site is full.

Schöner Platz im Umkreis von Edingburgh. Hunde sind willkommen und es gibt schöne Auslaufmöglichkeiten für unsere Vierbeiner. Durch die günstige Lage zu Edingburgh ( Bus direkt am Platz) und der schönen Parkähnlichen Gestaltung nicht billig. Zu bemängeln sind einzig die Sanitäreinrichtungen. Diese sind in die Jahre gekommen und werden zu wenig gepflegt.
Insgesamt aber ein empfehlenswerter Platz, gerade mit Hund

Camping zeer dicht bij Edinburgh. Prima busverbinding en goed eten in het restaurant. Er is wel veel fietsendiefstal op de camping (ook toen wij er waren) dus fietsen op dubbelslot en ergens aan vast zetten. Verder prachtige uitvalsbasis om de omgeving te verkennen. Nationaal museum en stoomtreinen museum zijn aanraders met kinderen!

Na 2005 weer terug op Morton Hall. Blijft een prima stadscamping met veel capaciteit en sterke wisseling. Wifi wordt op de pitch aangeboden met betaling via paypal, maar na betaling geen internet en beheerder verwijst naar derden als leverancier, terwijl hij de naamgever van de Wifi op Morton Hall en dus verantwoordlijk is. Nabijheid Edinburgh en wijdse regio is heerlijk. Genoten dus! Prima restaurant.

Prima Platz, um Edinburgh zu erkunden (Achtung: Das Geld für den Bus muss passend sein, es wird nicht gewechselt). Es ist sehr ruhig, Hunde sind willkommen und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

Camping ayant pour principal intérêt sa proximité avec le centre d'Edimbourg et un arrêt de transport en commun à l'entrée. Comptez 25 minutes pour arriver en bus au centre. La structure étant grande, les sanitaires pâtissent lors des périodes d'affluence du grand nombre de visiteurs et l'accueil est plutôt "réservé". A noter restaurant sur place !

we arrived around 9 pm and we were told to park at the late night arrivals which was outside the camp ground. didn\'t have acces to toilets or shower or any camping facilities. the night guard could not tell us the price and next morning we found out that we were charged as if we had a normal pitch ground with all amananties.
