Drummohr Campsite wins second prestigious award

Scotland’s Drummohr Campsite has won a second well-respected award in the space of six months, putting the East Lothian holiday park firmly on the map.

Just a few months ago, we reported on the fact that Drummohr won Campsite of the Year at the Camping Awards 2024 and now it’s scooped another prize.

The five-star campsite, which is located on bus route 26 into Edinburgh, has been named the best in Scotland by outdoor accommodation booking platform

Situated between Musellburgh and Prestonpans, Drummohr is just eight miles from Edinburgh city centre, but with the beaches of the Firth of Forth on its doorstep.

It received full marks from reviewers on the Pitchup site, which praised its strategic location, offering the best of both worlds with city and countryside in close proximity.

Angie Purves, site manager at Drummohr, said: “We always aim to go the extra mile for our guests and I think the fact that both awards came from either reviews or votes from the public reflects the hard work, passion and dedication of the entire team.

“We want to ensure that everyone who visits Drummohr gets the best experience possible, from the moment we receive their booking to the moment they leave our gates. We hope this encourages them to come back and stay with us and recommend us to family and friends.

“Ultimately, our job is to help our guests make wonderful memories which will last a lifetime.”

Pitchup Awards

The Pitchup awards take more than 171,000 verified reviews from guests into consideration when declaring the best places to camp or park up your leisure vehicle overnight.

Caravan and motorhome owners who booked through the online platform during 2023 were among those invited to give their opinions on places to stay.

Sites were evaluated on aspects such as:

  • Location
  • Value for money
  • Quality of accommodation
  • Activities and cleanliness

Drummohr Campsite

The Drummohr site sits within the grounds of a former monastery and has been endorsed by VisitScotland, which has awarded it five stars.

As well as offering grass and hardstanding pitches for touring caravans and motorhomes, Drummohr also rents out self-catering luxury lodges with hot tubs, glamping pods and en-suite bothies.

It’s particularly family friendly with themed wizard, adventure and fairy glamping pods, as well as a large playground.

You can even bring Fido along, as Drummohr has its own scenic dog walk, a dog wash and pet-friendly accommodation.

Campers can bring up to two dogs to its touring pitches free of charge.
