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.

Aberdeen tour

We stayed here for 7 nights June 2021, as the location is central to the areas we wanted to visit. The site is the usual well maintained, clean and tidy Club site. Wardens very friendly and helpful. The only adverse point to mention is noise, this is not a peaceful quiet site as it runs parallel to the busy A93 with heavy traffic early in the morning and there is a timber processing plant a few hundred yards away. For this reason alone, we would not plan to stay here again for more than a coup of nights.

Central to Deeside and handy for the coast.

Silverbank has always provided us with a range of pleasing characteristics. It is central to many places worthy of a visit, allows numerous cycling and walking options as well as numerous coffee shops and gardens. Banchory is an attractive town with a wide range of facilities. It is a quiet site which inevitably attracts members who are friendly. The site is well cared for with the Wardens doing sterling work to maintain high standards.

Great site.

Stayed here for two weeks 14th May onwards. We were only due to stay one week but our car had a problem and needed to be repaired in Aberdeen. The Wardens booked us in for another week which took the pressure off us. We enjoyed our stay very much, lovely walks from site and Banchory is a lovely little town. Bus route to Aberdeen which is worth a visit. Big thanks to the wardens for being so helpful during our stay. Definitely worth another visit.

Queen of Royal Deeside

Stayed here early to mid June for 2 nights and it simply was not long enough to do everything in the area. It is a Great site close enough to two major supermarkets and the superb shops, cafes, and attractions of Banchory can be walked or driven. There are also shops in squares off the Main Street worth frequenting and there are many fine looking pubs Fast, efficient, and very welcoming check in with latest safety advice. Large hard standing flat pitches, excellent dog exercise area. Well laid out site with plentiful amenities for water and grey waste dotted around. Centralised shower, toilet, CDP, washing up, and laundry block. Excellent site … well done.

Very well looked after site.

Having stayed on this site a number of times in the last 3-4 years we find the site has a very high standard of cleanliness, with the grounds and hard standing pitches immaculately maintained. This is a credit to Gary and Sue for all the hard work done to keep our local site in this condition. They are a credit to the club for this high standard. Looking forward to our next visit before very long..😎😎
