Why stay here ...

Greenpark CL is a quiet, rural site set in a peaceful location on Royal Deeside, a favourite haunt of Royalty. The pitches are all hard standing, of a generous size and each serviced with 16 amp electricity, mains water tap and waste water disposal.  Heated toilet and shower facilities, upgraded in 2012, are also available. Greenpark is an eco-friendly site and members must only use green toilet fluid when emptying cassettes.

Adults/children/pets are all welcome. Across the road from the site we have provided a 2 mile circular walk around the adjoining farmland and woodlands to help you enjoy the wildlife.

The site is approximately 2 miles from the town of Banchory, the gateway to the Dee Valley. The surrounding area has many delights to offer. It provides an excellent base from which to explore castles, mountains and coastlines, all within an hour's drive. Should you wish to leave the car behind, the public bus service can be accessed hourly approximately 100 yards from the site entrance.

There are many activities within easy reach to provide both a relaxing or an active day out - fishing on the River Dee or at the Raemoir Trout Fishery, golfing, walking, mountain biking, a visit to Banchory Museum, Woodend Arts Centre, Balmoral Castle or Lochnagar Distillery are only some of the possibilities. Aberdeenshire is known for its splendid local produce, and Banchory and the surrounding area has a variety of award winning restaurants and many tea rooms. A wide range of supermarkets, garden centres, independent and specialist shops can be found in the Town Centre and at Milton of Crathes, specialising in crafts, galleries, clothing, homewares and gifts.

Fabulous CL Site

This is a gorgeous CL site with generous pitches in a quiet location about 2.5 miles from Banchory. The site is shared with some wigwams and lodges but everything is well-spaced and it all looks really nice. The loos and showers were clean and fresh, and everything about the site was pleasant and well-kept. This is one of the best CL sites we have stayed on (and we have been to some really good ones) and we will definitely be back.

The perfect CL?

I haven't reviewed this site before, simply because of my selfishness and my desire to always get on it when I wanted. However, having got all my bookings for next year(2018) confirned, I will review this site. lol Obviously, you can't please everyone, but the toilets are spacious, clean, and heated in winter. I believe that David has now installed a camera looking down on the wigwams, so any misbehaviour can be dealt with. How anyone can complain about the fact that the site is shared with wigwams and lodges, defeats me. The site is VERY spacious and the individual pitches are large; there is plenty of space for the caravan, car, and awning. The walk across the road from the site is ideal, and is almost level all the way round, and there are additional walks which can be added on to it. The area surrounding the site is beautiful, often in the evenings there is not a sound to be heard, except from the nearby river. On your doorstep, is the whole of Royal Deeside, affording many walks and lovely drives. Is this the perfect CL? It has to be the bargain of the year at just £12. (I should whisper that in case David and Sheena have any ideas!!) lol

Could be so much better

Nice site but with a little more effort could be very good. The towel in the toilet was not changed during the 5bdays of our visit. No displayed rules about dogs - the dog from the motorhome next to us left his calling card just outside our awning 😡 A fight between two other dogs resulted in one of the owners being bitten. The adjoining pods and chalets can make this site feel crowded and we were disturbed by really noisy children up to 23.30 ! It's a pity that the Club rules for club sites did not apply to this cl.

Early Summer visit to Greenpark

This fine CL is situated about 3 mls outside of Banchory, on Royal Deeside, along a side road of decent width, so no problems with traffic. This very peaceful, well sheltered site has 5 large Hardstanding, serviced pitches, toilets and free shower and all for £12pn. There are also 5 pods and 4 cabins on the site but we were not bothered by excessive noise from those that were occupied. There is an old abandoned railway line opposite the gate which leads into Brathens Woods and is ideal for walking ones dog(s). There are lots of places of interest in the area to suit all taste. Numerous castles, Crathes & Drum being the closest, Balmoral is about 30 mls away and beyond that there's Braemar and Glen Shee. Scolty Tower, behind Banchory makes for a pleasant although steepish walk and for the more adventurous the Cairngorm Hills are quite close. For the cyclist there's the Deeside way, which in part utilises the old railway line from Aboyne to Ballater. Banchory has both a Tesco and Morrisons and both have petrol filling stations, as well as the usual tourist shops and cafes etc. We would certainly not hesitate to use this site again.
