Silverbank Caravan Club Site is an open location just off the Aberdeen to Braemar Road; it runs parallel with the River Dee through some absolutely splendid countryside. Nearby Banchory is a popular little holiday town offering a wealth of activities for all the family, including pony trekking, fishing and a golf course. Whilst staying at the caravan site, you will want to take the time to visit Cairngorm National Park and Aberdeen, the capital of the Grampian Highlands and Britain's Cleanest City. Just some of the highlights this city boasts are its floral displays, clean sandy beach, narrow cobbled streets, busy harbour and educational Maritime Museum. For the children, there is a fun Science Centre with over 50 hands-on interactive exhibits and live science shows as well as the family history shop.

There are plenty of excellent walking choices available from Silverbank Caravan Club Site, including some lovely dog walks. A 2.5 mile saunter will bring you to the Bridge of Feugh where you can sometimes spot salmon leaping up the falls. For a longer walk, explore Glen Muik where you can go right around the Loch and will almost certainly spot deer. The site is also a great base for exploring fascinating historic sites such as Crathes Castle which has an adventure playground for children, Drum Castle and Gardens, and the beautiful castle and grounds at Balmoral.

With all these local activities at hand, this caravan park makes for a memorable family holiday.

1st visit

4 out of 5

This was my first site as a club member. As a new member I was hoping to kept right if I was doing anything wrong as I hadn't received my pack at this time. To my surprise I seemed to be all within the rules but one of the staff(male) had a real go at my son about our outfit but never mentioned anything to me. I felt this was out of order and only wish i had been there 1 more night to sort any issue at the time.

Lovely maintained and clean site. Large pitches, lovely wardens and close to supermarkets. Basic but adequate dog walking/facilities. Plenty to do if you want it or relax and enjoy a quiet, well maintained site if you don't. Based on our two night stay can't see how anyone could fault it.

Could do better

The site is very clean and well looked after, very good if you have no children. The site has more provision for dogs, than families, with no play area no area for any ball games very little for three children to do, however the charges for children are not reflective of this. Other than trying to keep the children occupied when on site as they could do very little the site was good. If you have a dog, they have areas for it, and a lot more facilities again the charging dose not reflect this  Overall disappointed as we had to be off site most of the time a playpark would be helpful, or a games room. Paid less in a French site for more facilities and on site entertainment with great weather than did on this site. Could do so much better.
