Why stay here ...

Silverbank 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 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.

Enjoyable Stay

Excellently situated site with plenty to do in the local area including lovely walks, lots of castles and great places to eat. Highly recommend Raemoir Garden Centre for nice lunches and afternoon teas. If you visit Drum Castle make sure you visit the huge Mains of Drum Garden Centre which also does great food. This was our second visit and we will certainly be coming back.

A nice spot to stay.

Oval in shape with a nice lawned area in the centre, this site is immaculately kept and is a pleasant place to stay. All pitches are hard standing, level and generous in size. The ground takes a peg quite easily. There is a bit of road noise so the best pitches are at the rear. There’s also a sawmill on the eastern side of the site which generates some intermittent noise so look for a pitch on the west side near the rear. There was no 4G signal here (O2) so that was a disappointment. The on-site wi-fi is OK for emails and the like but not much else. I usually tether to my phone for internet so bear that in mind if you’re an O2 customer. I can't comment on other providers.The shower cubicles are tight. Breathe in when dressing! Banchory is a nice small town and I found it pleasant to walk round. It’s very handy for touring and there are castles aplenty, with Aberdeen a nice and handy day out. We had a special lunch in "Amerone" on Union Street and whilst expensive it was wonderful.There are Tesco and Morrisons supermarkets close by the site.

Quality in the face of adversity

These are difficult times challenging to one and all. Step up the Caravan Club! This was our first time in Banchory so we didn’t know what to expect. We were very impressed by the friendly welcome we received and the straight forward, succinct way in which vital information was conveyed. The site is nice and flat, well laid out and immaculately maintained. Covid restrictions were in place and for the most part adhered to and well policed by the wardens. The town of Banchory is about a one mile walk away which is easy going. However It is a one horse town, not worth the effort especially during these times. Tesco is a five minute walk away with Morrison being slightly longer in the opposite direction. We had good weather which helped but all in all I have nothing negative to say about this site. First class in every respect. Well done Caravan Club! We’re already booked for next month.

Love this site

We have stayed here a few times over the past couple of years due to fishing on the Dee. Last year we experience problems with our outfit following a severe power outage when we had to leave the site. It is a pity that the problems have not been fixed completely 12 months on as half of the site was shut. However that probably helped the Covid restrictions on the facilities with less people on site than expected. The facilitles are a little dated but still very clean and we experienced no issues with access when we wanted. Will stay again.
