What is a Shepherd's hut?
The Shepherd’s hut was a kitchen, dining room, bedroom, sitting room and storeroom all rolled into one. The designs vary but all were constructed to provide the shepherd with practical and durable accommodation. The old huts had a stove in one corner for warmth and cooking, and a window on each side so the shepherd could see the flock.
Well appointed comfort...
A hinged stable door, which was always positioned away from the prevailing wind, enabled him to hear the flock, and strong axles with cast iron wheels were used to withstand the constant movement from field to field.

We found it very welcoming and chose to stay here again over Hogmanay due to the ease of getting to and from the city centre, and the reasonable price for 2 nights stay. Everyone we encountered was helpful, and we were able to check in before the official check in time due to the property being ready early which was very useful. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would happily recommend to others.
Love this place such easy access to Edinburgh and a lovely garden centre right on your doorstep.
Staff so friendly and efficient, always love our stay at Mortonhall, so convenient for travel to city.
Beautiful setting, so clean with a variety of wildlife. Loved the two bulls In the front fields. Really great place. We live in Australia so very nice to see rain and green fields.
Beautiful surroundings, plenty of room, good bus links from outside park and easy to find on arrival. Excellent experience and the best overall site we found in a month of touring Scotland.
Excellent staff very friendly and helpful, lovely clean facilities, great enjoyable place to visit, couldn’t fault Mortonhall.
In a lovely location, great park, very well kept, very good bus service to city centre, we would come back again, our stay was very enjoyable though too short.
Good having bus stops nearby. Site very convenient for Edinburgh.
From the first phone call (which felt welcomed than an imposition or unwanted interruption) nothing was too much trouble. My son is disabled and the gentleman was only too happy to place us as close to the shower block and facilities as he could. Unbidden, help was offered with regard to directions to the caravan park, information was given as to the facilities, and our late arrival posed no problems as there was a perfect system to accommodate that. Quite a contrast to other caravan parks we had cause to use during our trip. The facilities were fantastic with a great bar and restaurant and the park itself was immaculately tidy and very well maintained. The shower block was warm, with lovely hot water that was consistent and easy to control, the shower heads were clean with a uniform spray that actually enabled you to wash effectively (as opposed to spraying the ceiling and any which way but on your actual body). Decent, clean, quality, mops, squeegees and buckets were provided to clean the excess water for the next person to use. I also did my laundry whilst there and these facilities were also perfect. Clear instructions, efficient, clean machines and dryers that were a pleasure to use. This park is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and minimising waste which is fantastic for our environment. Sadly it was at the end of our trip so we only stayed one night, but I will definitely go back with my son and spend a bit more time. It’s abundantly clear that the owners, managers and staff enjoy what they do and take pride in this park. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending it to anyone
A lovely stay at the site, very helpful friendly staff and good bus services in to Edinburgh… thank-you for having us.
Excellent location for Edinburgh fringe festival.
Best place to stay when visiting Edinburgh. Especially when arriving from south. Great transport links. Nice walks. Very safe site. No traffic noise from nearby roads. Good recycling facilities. Meet people from all over the world
