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.

My new favourite.

Have just finished an extended stay at Silverbank, set just outside Banchory. What a lovely little site, especially at this time of year, surrounded as it is by mature trees, shrubs and hedges, all in glorious autumnal tones. Half the size of most CAMC parks, it is set around two grassed areas. One facility block with three showers, cubicles and toilets in each, kept impeccably clean. No play area for children, and this was reflected in visitor make-up. Even at half-term, there were few junior members. We received a warm and helpful welcome from the warden couple, who manage this site with pride and constant attention. The all-hardstanding pitches and surrounds are tended and weeded daily and everything looks so neat. A fenced dog-walking area gives joy to many a hound, able to run off leash. And access to the riverside walk is available directly outside the site and extends for miles. A doggy delight. Lots of lovely tea-rooms to choose from (I particularly liked the Barn); Famous-House Chinese takeaway was excellent; and Sheridan's Butchers (who supply Balmoral) offered a fab selection of meats. Sightseeing in Deeside with castles galore; Cairngorms on the doorstep and the beautiful Moray Firth all within a day's drive. I really liked this little gem. Pay attention to arrival guidance, the instructions are perfect and needed. Satnav won't take you the best route.

Good location

Stayed here for a week in May when the weather was amazing, unfortunately this visit was quite a bit cooler but it did not stop us staying on for a second week. Wardens are excellent and keep the site immaculate. Toilet block is getting a bit dated but kept spotless and pitches are spacious. Supermarkets, pub and and an excellent walk along the banks of the Dee make it a pleasant site to visit. Bus stops for Aberdeen and Braemar are just outside the gate. Only issue and it is not unique to this site unfortunately is the speed of drivers on site, I even seen one young lady txting as she drove round.

Excellent weekend!

First visit to Silverbank but will definitely not be the last. Very friendly staff and lovely clean and tidy site. Pitches are very spacious and level with good separation. A bit of traffic noise as the site is next to the road, however hardly noticeable after a short time. Like the dog exercise area at the end of the site.
