Unfortunately due to the current travel restrictions in place at the moment we are having to delay the reopening of the park until the COVID-19 situation is under control. Anyone with a current booking up until the end of April will be able to reschedule their booking to use at their convenience during either this season or next season. We will review this situation in line with the Government guidelines on a regular basis and update any reopening date on the website. Stay safe and we thank you for your understanding in these difficult times for everyone. Slatebarns Caravan Park is a touring caravan/motorhome park (no residentials or tents) which is owned and run by Pam & Bryan Crawford. It is located on the ouskirts of Edinburgh (7 miles to the city centre's Princes Street) and minutes from Edinburgh City Bypass. There is a choice of hardstanding or grass pitches - all with electric hookups. This peaceful park is situated on the edge of Roslin Glen (which has great woodland walks). It is next door to the famous Rosslyn Chapel and Rosslyn Castle (both featured in the movie The Da Vinci Code). A 5 minute walk up Chapel Loan takes you to the main street of Roslin where you will find the friendly village pub which serves food daily in their cosy lounge, conservatory and bar and welcomes dogs both in the bar and beer garden. The bus stop into Edinburgh is directly opposite where you will also find Dollys Tearoom. A direct bus service to Edinburgh (No. 37) runs every 30 minutes during weekdays and every 20 minutes at weekends and also runs through the night into the early hours of the morning. There is a Post Office and convenience store and a Co-op supermaket (with cash machine). Two larger supermarkets (Asda and Sainsburys) and M&S Simply Food are situated at Straiton retail park (just over a 5 minute drive away by car) along with various restaurants and fast food outlets.
This park is ideal for those wishing to participate in either golf, hillwalking amongst the Pentland Hills which are 3 miles away, ski-ing at Hillend artificial ski-slope 3 miles, horseriding - 4.8 miles or exploring the sights of Edinburgh - which includes The Scottish Parliament, the famous Royal Mile which has Holyrood Palace at one end of it and Edinburgh Castle at the other end. The famous Edinburgh Fringe & International Festival takes place in the month of August as does the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. This time of year tends to fill up quickly so early booking is advised. The Royal Highland Showground is situated 12.5 miles away which is where the Royal Highland Show is held in June every year.
