    Edinburgh Parking

    Don't know about staying long term, but, if you wanted a break from your camping pitch there is a car park in the centre of Edinburgh where we have stayed for various weekends.

    The charge is £7.80 for 24 hours.

    There are public toilets about 100 yds away, (outside Waverley Railway Station)

    The postcode of the road it is on is EH3 8EB.

    The Car Park is right outside the Holiday Inn.

    Full time sites are hard to find, most commercial ones only have 'touring' licences and paradoxically residential sites don't usually take vans .. they are also expensive for full timing.

    Your best bet is to look for a CL or CS that may let you stay over the 28 days but you will probably need to find two and move between them on a 28 day cycle .. sorry can't advise on specific CLs ..

    Another option is to find a friendly farmer who may let you stay unofficially .. but most are cagey about it unless they know you ..

    The CC and C&C C also do seasonal pitches with quite decent rates but need advance booking and have a 21 day limit, you don't actually need to move off, you only need to stay somewhere else for one night .. again this is to do with the sites only having touring licenses ..


    good luck

    Jim
