Why stay here ...

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

There are a range of outdoor activities available from Huntly Castle Caravan Park. The rivers Deveron and Bogie present some excellent angling opportunities, with permits available by arrangement. Golfing enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice with no less than fifteen courses available within a 25 mile radius.

Peacefully surrounded by lovely River walks, ideal location for dog owners

Huntly Castle Caravan Park
Stayed June 2021 Upon arrival we followed covid rules and telephoned the reception mobile. Lady in reception was super helpful and gave excellent walks info and let me borrow her walking map. Great level pitches, huge sizes with electric hook up and many serviced pitches too. The site is kept nipping clean, showers were lovely temperature. The dogs loved all the walks and paddling in the river. The castle is a very short walk away but you can do a longer loop walk up into the town, back around the golf course and down to the castle. Loved it. The town has a great leisure facility with swimming pool, football fields, nordic centre and more. It has been hit by the lockdown but still had cute cafes & pubs. Chinese, Indian, Fish & chips and keebab shops. There is a tesco & asda just down the road. Obviously facilities are open but with social distancing rules in place. My only issue was other guests not following the safety covid rules & littering this beautiful town & parks. We had no issues with power. All areas were cleaned regularly. We will definitely return.

Poor power stability

Huntly Castle Caravan Park
Paid for a pitch with power but after 4 power cuts per evening ended up running fridge on gas. Site is lovely and well kept but best suited for young families. Unfortunately Huntly though is a bit limited on things to do. Treat as a hub and go touring around the area.

Definitely Not Club Standard

Huntly Castle Caravan Park
When I booked this site we had to pay up front and at that point we were allocated a pitch number. On arrival there was a telephone number on a board to phone. When I phoned the number the woman gave us a pitch number but it was NOT the pitch number I had been given on my booking form. I questioned this i was told they didn’t say I was getting that pitch.....so what is the point of putting it on the booking form! When we eventually found the replacement pitch we were stuck away down on a pitch with caravans either side of us and too say it was tight is an understatement . No way were we 6mtrs away from either of them.The pitch was the worst one they could give anyone, no sun,no space and certainly no privacy. Toilets were clean but dated, staff were non existent only saw two men wondering about to empty buckets and give the toilets a token clean. I did see a female on a bike but who she was I couldn’t say, never spoke or acknowledged you. For us we will not be back, I would seriously have to consider booking a club affiliated site... I don’t think I would. It left a bad taste in our mouth and NOT Club Standerd!

Great Location for Exploring Aberdeenshire

Huntly Castle Caravan Park
This was our first visit and we found the site to be excellent. There is a huge amount of space with three toilet blocks and four areas for outfits. Each area has its own play facilities in the middle of the area. The toilets were very clean and the COVID 19 arrangements were even better than the (good) ones we have experienced at directly managed Club sites. The site is within 10 minutes walk of the centre of Huntly and in the middle of an extensive piece of recreational land beside the River Dereron which includes more play facilities, excellent walks, a Nordic Ski Centre and Huntly Castle (open to the public through Historic Scotland). The site is immaculately maintained and the site staff were very helpful despite the distancing requirements of the COVID arrangements. Finally, the site is a great location to explore the Aberdeenshire Coast and countryside (with even more castles!) and the Speyside Whisky Trail.

A bit greedy
