Forget auld acquaintance and herald the new year with a fresh start in a fresh place...

New Year's Eve this year fortuitously falls on a Saturday giving you the perfect excuse for a long weekend getaway.  Where better to spend some time celebrating but in one of our Hogmanay hot-spots where you can eschew the cramped city quarters, come back to (or dare way say collapse into) a cosy leisure vehicle and spend the next day indulging in a lie-in, a leisurely brunch  and maybe a cobweb-busting brisk walk in some glorious fresh air. That’s the way to start off a brand new year.

We'll raise a toast to that ...

The site is only a stone’s throw away from the waterfront where campers can walk along the promenade of Cramond and, only a short drive away, visitors can enjoy the popular coastal suburb of Portobello with its pubs, restaurants and shops.
