Close to the east coast of Scotland, at cycling distance from Edinburgh and amidst open farmland, lies the quiet Camping Linwater Caravanpark. It is an ideal spot for seekers of peace and quiet, walkers or those interested in a city trip to the Scottish capital. The Pentland Hills Regional Park and various other country parks are in the immediate vicinity.

Luxury lodges

The well-kempt terrain consists of an open camping lawn with some flower beds, partially shielded by trees and shrubs on the periphery. There are paved pitches along gravel paths for caravans and campers, while tents stand on grassland. Want to hire something? You can choose between hiker's cabins and luxury Scandinavian lodges with a terrace, barbecue and chairs.


Recently, a playground was laid out for children; otherwise, there is not much to do on the camping grounds. This in contrast to the surrounding area. Close to the camping site lies the Calderwood and Almondell Country Park; from there you can go on lovely walks along the river Almond. There is a walking trail along the Union Canal in the direction of Linlithgow, which starts in Ratho. Are you looking for something else? People at the reception will gladly assist you. Furthermore, you will find all necessary information about sights in the region there.

Small shop

At the reception is a small shop with a limited assortment. Milk, bread and newspapers can be ordered daily. In East Calder (3 km away) you can do your daily shopping and in Livingston (6 km away) you will find large supermarkets.

Sanitary facilities

The modern sanitary facilities are located in a stylish Scandinavian building and are kept immaculate. There are private cabins and facilities for disabled persons.

Willem Vink, on this campsite in June 2018


Travelling party: Single

Prima camping onder de rook van Edinburgh. Goed uitvalspunt om rondom en in Edinburgh bezienswaardigheden te bezoeken. Lawaai van vliegveld is wel hinderlijk met name ‘S-morgens vroeg

Margriet P., on this campsite in August 2017


Travelling party: Seniors

Mooie, landelijk gelegen camping, verharde plaatsen voor caravans en campers. Goed en goed schoongehouden sanitair. Jammer dat 's avonds veel tenten, busjes etc. tussen de caravans en campers (mogen) worden gezet, waardoor het wat te vol wordt. De luchthaven van Edinburgh is vlakbij, op de camping kun je de regelmatig opstijgende vliegtuigen goed volgen. Geen last van gehad.
Vlakbij de luchthaven (5 km) is een grote P+R, waar je gratis kunt parkeren en voordelig met de tram naar de stad kunt. Heel goede voorziening!
Groot winkelcentrum in het nabijgelegen Livingston, met enorme supermarkt.

"Countryside farm campsite with an enthusiastic and welcoming family. Mostly flat pitches and clean toilet facilities. Campers can use the garden furniture and herb garden. Flower beds adorn the whole site. There is a Park and Ride connection with Edinburgh from the A8 and A71."
