This is also an ideal touring base for the famous Castle and Whisky Trails slightly further afield.

Nice site in good location

Stayed for two nights on a serviced pitch in the adults only section. Very peaceful, friendly campmates, nice helpful staff on reception, lovely couple doing the cleaning who had just started working there, a joy to talk to. Only draw back was the lack of satellite signal, we had to buy an aerial cable, also the toilet block in our area was not open while we were there which seemed a bit odd as the site was quite busy. Lovely location, good dog walks nearby. The town of Huntly is a joy and some of the best fish and chips we have had in ages.

Great site worth a visit

We stayed here 22nd June 2017 and received a warm welcome when booking in. It is a peaceful site and we were entertained by the rabbits of many different colours during the warm but wet evening. The site showers were the largest I have ever been in and were very clean. We stayed one night when we were leaving my caravan became unhitched and crashed into my car and was lodged under the car . The RAC refused to attend as this was classed as an accident by them but the owner of the camp site removed the caravan from under the car and contacted the local garage and arranged for us the get repaired. He also followed us in his car as we had no electrics as this was ripped off during the incident. Service beyond the call of duty. We will be returning again when visiting this area. Can recommend this site.

August short stay

We stayed here on 20th and 21st of August and were met with a friendly and professional receptionist whom expedited our check in. The site is lovely and clean. Set in woodlands at the side of the village it is an ideal base for visiting whisky trails, castles and nearby towns . Shower and toilet blocks were first class. You may want to take a long tv cable as there is no signal in the site unless you plug into the hook up socket (which are one between two pitches). The wifi however is quite pricey and mobile coverage is patchy. No perks at a glance of being a Caravan Club member.

One of the best sites we've stayed on!

I don't find myself writing reviews that often but I had to for this site as it deserves five stars (and more). A beautiful and well kept site.  The layout of the site makes it feel that you are sharing a site with only a handful of others.   Only staying for one night we wanted to take in as much of Huntly as possible (with our four legged friends) and the young couple on the desk couldn't do enough for us.  They let us have the use of their own copy of a local walks book which was very informative.  Just a polite request for us to return it when we left. The toilets were the cleanest I've seen and I liked that each 'area' had their own block with differing closing times meaning you were never left short! I'm not sure if it was coincidental or the team allocate this way but the pitches surrounding the very impressive play parks seemed to be occupied only by those people with children whilst adult only parties were allocated pitches in the other areas.   With lots of open space and walks direct from the campsite, this site was first class.  The team should be commended on their customer service and the upkeep of their park.  We spotted the team quietly going around doing jobs such as painting the logs separating pitches, keeping the perfectly landscaped grass pristine, or emptying bins.  A friendly hello was always given - the staff appear to go above and beyond - fabulous!   The only downside to this site was the fact we'd only booked one night and could not extend due to additional bookings.  We will be back as there is still lots more to see. Thank you to all at Huntly.

Central with easy access

For our very first trip away, we chose this site on the basis that it was so easy to get to. Access roads were well signed and approach roads were really easy. We were keen to leave single track roads until we are a bit more experienced. Site is lovely, private, clean, and well kept. Huntly itself is a pretty and historic town and within an easy walk of the site. But the rabbits! And there were hundreds -running around keeping the grass manicured. Our poor Irish setter spent the stay staring out of the window, shaking like a jelly. For his sanity, we decided to move on but would otherwise have stayed longer. Thoroughly recommend.
