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.

Another great stay

Silverbank Caravan Club Site
Another great stay at Silverbank for the last 4 nights of the season, despite the poor weather. Sorry to hear that Gary and Sue are moving on after this season. But we wish them all the best with their move. They have been an asset to the site, keeping it looking great. They were particularly helpful when my daughter's partner had an epileptic seizure in the shower and we're very quick to respond. Bromyard Downs site are gaining two great wardens. We look forward to meeting the new wardens next year.

Departing Wardens

Silverbank Caravan Club Site
Sorry to hear that Gary & Sue are leaving Silverbank Site. They worked hard keeping the site spick and span at all times. They were so friendly and nothing was any bother to them. Was unable to visit the past 2 seasons but hopefully will pay a visit in 2022 & look forward to meeting the new wardens. Gary & Sue were a credit to the Caravan & Motorhome Club & can hold their heads up high. Good luck Gary & Sue & hope all goes well for you both in the future. You never know we might meet up again.

Has always been a top drawer site

Silverbank Caravan Club Site
Like many other regulars we will be sorry to see Sue and Gary leave after 5 years of hard graft and welcoming manner. The site overall reflected their high standards. We wish them well in their new role within the Caravan Club. As ever the 5 night stay was a joy allowing us to fulfil our family commitments, meet our friends who were also on site at the same time, participate in our preferred methods of exercise and generally get out and about to some of the best coffee shops in the North East. What is not to like?

Super site, shame to hear Managers are moving on

Silverbank Caravan Club Site
This is our 5/6th visit here, basically once a year since caravanning. Usual warm welcome from Sue and Gary and shame they are moving on after 5 years of setting a high standard, will be a hard act to follow. One grumble - stopped van to revers in and a VW camper cut across the grass to get the pitch we wanted - no point in arguing, as it happens a better pitch further round was available. Very well managed site with big wide pitches, at least 8 feet wider than a commercial site we had just came from!! Banchory is a great town with plenty of shopping and an excellent curry house - Darbar, just up road and a Tesco 5 mins walk from site. Further afield Ballater is always a great drive and place to wander round - visited the Balmoral Bar for first time and had lunch - excellent meals and service - Had the Durban curry which was superb!

Excellent site

Silverbank Caravan Club Site
Very friendly wardens and a very clean and well located site. Facilities are good, including the wifi. We were here for North East Open Studios and this is a good location for touring the area including access to Aberdeen. Also convenient for walks along the river and former railway line and convenient for good range of local facilities. Also has a good area for dogs.
