Great CL.

Smithy Croft
Great wee site, nice views from the slightly elevated, good sized pitches. Very well maintained, which hopefully you can see from the pics. There is a single toilet on site for members use which was a real bonus. We arrived after dark so finding our pitch was a bit tricky, basically it's on the lhs as you drive up the incline. Once we got a headtorch out we found our pitch and put the light on! Only slight negative point is proximity to the main road, there is some road noise, didn't really affect us and we were on the closest pitch to the road so probably won't be noticed by most. Overall, a fantastic site, will be staying again!

One of the best

Smithy Croft
This must be one of the best CL's we have ever stayed on. Spotless pitches and lovely views. The owners are the friendliest we have ever met on a CL and could not have been more helpful. We will definitely stay there again if we are anywhere nearby, and there are not many CL's I would say that about. We rarely stay for more than one night anywhere but loved it so much we stayed longer.

Stunning cl with great views from the pitches. Friendly, helpful, and attentive site owners are a pleasure to meet. Site is immaculate and one definitely on the map for a return to when in the area. Huge bonus was seeing and a wee travel in Bill’s gloriously restored 1934 Morris 10.4 car. Can’t recommend this cl highly enough.

Easily located, very welcoming, lovely location with views and vintage cars! Very beautiful, polished vintage cars. Grass cut perfectly and not left lying. Barrow full of flowers to set off the view. Water and electricity on each pitch and toilet disposal easily accessed. Very good value considering all of the above.

Warm welcome from helpful owner

Smithy Croft
Very neat, well signposted site beside busy main road - quite a lot of traffic noise, especially at going to work time, few lorries through the night. Very clean toilet and wash basin with hot water. Spacious pitches and short grass - tree protection from prevailing wind behind pitches very welcome. Good base for touring North Aberdeenshire - roads all of very high standard. Asda, Tesco and Lidl in nearby Fraserburgh.
