Alan Rogers Review

The rural setting of Lauder Camping & Caravanning Club site means you can be sure of a relaxing break during your stay in border country. The wide open space and stunning scenery make the Scottish Borders a walker’s paradise. Don't forget your walking boots so you can enjoy parts of the the 212 mile Southern Upland Way which passes south of the site, the Lammermuir Hills and further afield, Arthur’s Seat hill fort in Edinburgh. There are numerous trails directly from site too. The site has 60 mainly level grass or hardstanding pitches, most with electric hook-up and some are serviced. A burn runs alongside the site, providing a habitat for local wildlife and birds. Four self-catering holiday chalets are available for hire.

N.B. Non-members are welcome and may join on site. Please speak to site staff for details and to check pitch availability before arrival.

The town of Lauder is only four miles away and offers a mix of history, scenery and sightseeing, including one of the seven great houses of Scotland, Thirlestane Castle. Its parklands overlook the Lammermuir Hills and the Southern Upland Way passes through the grounds. Visitors can enjoy a woodland walk, a small formal garden and the picnic area near the castle. A 40 minute drive north from Lauder will find you in Edinburgh (you could also catch a bus from outside the site to the capital or Jedburgh). The medieval buildings of the Royal Mile and the magnificent castle are among its attractions.
