We stayed two nights at Mortonhall Caravan and Camping Park - costing £22 per night for a couple in a 4 man tent
The site itself is well-run with a fully-manned reception and shop as you arrive.
The pitches are very close to each other and it can be a bit of a squeeze, but they obviously just make the most of what they've got.
If camping / caravanning isn't your thing you can stay in one of their wigwams. We didn't personally stay in one but they look great!
The shop has everything from tinned and fresh food to children's games and cleaning products.
It took us about 20 minutes to get from the site to Edinburgh Zoo and about the same time to get into the city centre.
Facilities wise the shower blocks are close to pretty much any pitch you get given and there's a dish washing stand with hot water. Both are clean and well kept.
There's also a games room with pool table, air hockey and several arcade games.
The fantastic 'Stables Bar' is on site which is great if you're in a tent and want a cold drink. They also serve hot and cold food and the prices and service was great.
Tip: don't use the post code in a sat nav to get you there - it takes you to a track round the back of the site which has no access.
