We wanted a quiet, dog friendly site with electric hook-up to stay for a few days with nearby pub / shops and bus service to Edinburgh & came across this perfect gem of a site. Situated in the village of Roslin it's only 2 mins walk to Rosslyn Chapel (made famous by Tom Hanks in the Da Vinci Code).
The reviews looked great & we were soon glad we chose Slatebarns. We received a warm, friendly greeting from Pam who was very informative about the area & facilities. The no37 bus was only a few minutes walk away & 35 mins to Edinburgh city centre. The site facilities are excellent (minimal but very clean & tidy). Entry & exit is via a coded security barrier, there's very good wifi signal, personal/spacious showers with lockable door & shower curtain (separating the dressing area), sheltered washing up & veg prep area, laundrette facilities, good lighting for dark night walks to the loo & lots of tourist literature for days out & right next to the site is a dog walking woodland. We were able to pick a parking spot for our motorhome to suit us. We would definitely recommend anyone looking for a campsite to stay here (tent, motor home or caravans).
A visit to the chapel is a bit costly at £9 per person but the bus was only £1.70 single fare to Edinburgh - bargain price as would cost a lot more in petrol & parking charges.
