Questions:-  (This review is from the point of view of motorhomers driving a Swift Kontiki 669 tag axle – 8.56m)

What are the pitches like?                

Mostly hard-standings with a smaller number of grass pitches.  Decent sizes with some super pitches.  Our pitches was plenty big enough for us.

Is there water on each pitch?            

Only on super pitches.  However, there are plenty of taps available and they are easily accessible

What is the electric like?           

16A– we had no problems


By the tap

What’s the site access like?        

Access is good from the main road.     It is not far at all off the main A road.  Access on site is excellent

What are the Sanitary facilities like?     

Toilets:                              1 sanitary block with ladies, gents and family room.  Excellent condition, very clean.  Closed between 10.30 and 11.30 am each day for cleaning when the family room is available.  This is very well decorated for the children – delightful 🙂

Toilet paper provided? Yes – plentiful

Showers:                          Clean and adequate.

What other facilities are there?    

Bins and CWD

Motorhome service point (drive over wastewater disposal)


Drying area



Dog walk

Is there any internet; if so how much and how good?    




We paid about £19 per night including electric in October.  It’s just over £20 per night at this time of year now.

What’s the area like?         

Lovely.  There’s a nice longish walk along the shore to the lighthouse and back.

We also had a nice cycle ride into Dunbar itself.

Not far from Edinburgh either.

Moving On:

We moved on to Lauder, a little further south but still in Scotland.  The weather scuppered our plans to head to Loch Lomond
