A caravan park just outside of Edinburgh has been crowned the "best" in Scotland.

With July just days away, families up and down Scotland will be frantically deciding how best to spend the summer holidays. While there are countless picturesque towns and villages all over the country to stay in, sometimes nothing can beat a few nights with your loved ones at a holiday park.

Ahead of the peak summer season, Linwater Caravan Park has earned the title of 'Best Caravan Park' in Scotland at the Scottish Hospitality Awards 2024. Despite facing strong competition, the site on the outskirts of the Scottish capital surpassed top-ranking caravan parks throughout the country to claim the prize.

The award-winning caravan site was recognised for its excellent customer service, commitment to maintaining immaculate grounds, and continuous improvement and investment in on-site facilities. Made up of two sets of warden couples and a housekeeping team of four, the small team was also praised for efficiently and effectively delivering a top guest experience.

Surrounded by beautiful countryside just 12 miles from the centre of Edinburgh, Linwater Caravan Park welcomes tents, caravans, campervans, and motorhomes. It also offers a curated selection of self-catering static caravans and lodges.

Facilities at the holiday park include a small store selling a selection of groceries and camping supplies, heated showers with a changing area, and an indoor camping kitchen with cooking facilities and a TV. There is also complimentary Wi-Fi, as well as a play park with a picnic area and a dog walking area with a scenic trail.

Linwater Caravan Park Manager Katie Guinan commented: "We are incredibly honoured to receive this award. Our team works tirelessly to ensure that every guest has a memorable and enjoyable stay.

"This recognition is a wonderful validation of our efforts and a motivation to continue striving for excellence. We couldn't have done this without the support of our wonderful guests.

"The feedback and loyalty we have received since opening in 1998 have been invaluable in helping us improve and create a place where families and friends can make lasting memories."

A spokesperson for The 7th Scottish Hospitality Awards 2024 added: "We’re proud to once again get to showcase the remarkable talent and exceptional standards within Scotland’s vibrant hospitality industry. The people shortlisted for these awards have consistently demonstrated excellence, innovation, and dedication in their respective categories, setting the benchmark for quality and service within the Scottish hospitality industry.

"We want to congratulate all of our winners & highly commended recipients on their accomplishments."
