Drummohr Camping and Glamping site offers Edinburgh camping in a picturesque location near the shores of the Firth of Forth. Located in the grounds of an old monastery, it is encircled by trees and has partial sea views across to Fife. It is a short bus journey to Edinburgh City and the East Lothian coastline, known as Edinburgh's Coast and Countryside, is just a short drive away. There are plenty of local walks and amenities, with Musselburgh being just 2-miles away and accessible by foot or by bike along the shores of the Firth of Forth on the John Muir Way. We think Melville Retreat on our camp site Edinburgh is one of the best self-catering cottages in Scotland!

Prices start at £250 a night low season rising to £325 a night high season. Available for Christmas glamping at £360 a night.
