    Sounds like you don't want to do sites but ...

    We just had a week at Mortonhall on the South edge of the city. Not cheap but has a good bar and restaurant on site and buses run every 10 mins into the city and also run through the night. Preferable to the club site on the other side of the city (we stayed there last year)

    I'd expect parking in Edinburgh to be difficult but it has one of the best bus services in the UK so I'd you do find somewhere out of town on a bus route it should be ok. Buses are £1.60 any single fare or £4 any buses all day

      Edinburgh has a pretty good Park & Ride.

        If you want to camp with access to the city Mortenhall is about as close as you will get without resorting to back streets, car parks etc.

        If just a park up for the day, Park and ride would be best.

        If you want to camp outside the city, there are a few places on the shore of the Forth. (I will pm you.)

            When we went to Edinburgh for the Tattoo we parked our C15 Hytop in the park and ride site at Newcraighall, just off the A1. 50p for 24 hours parking. £3.20 return on the train for the 10/12 minute trip into Edinburgh. Trains are roughly every half hour during the day and last one back to Newcraighall is about midnight. We stopped over a couple of nights along with a couple of other small campervans. No warning signs saying not too.

                  Update Musselburgh Harbour correct name Fisherrow. A height barrier has appeared on the car park by the beach (inner car park), but the outer is still OK. 8 vans in the outer and 2 small vans in the inner. Height is 2.1 metre so HiLos get under - fiat dobro with roof and LDV Pilot both got in.

                    We did that as well, it's fine and dandy. Several campers were there. No height barriers either.

                      Most Park and Rides have a height barrier ( 1.9m )> Tesco Dalkeith( 24 hrs) have no parking time limits ( though they might not like overnight ) and regular buses to city c. 25 mins
