Why stay here ...

Silverbank Club Campsite 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 Campsite, 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.

Lovely welcoming site

Silverbank Club Campsite
First time at this site and booked to stay 2 nights. Made to feel very welcome on arrival by Mark and Sam. Lovely well maintained site ideally positioned for walks into Banchory along the North Deeside Trail or Crathes Castle in the opposite direction. Bus stop directly outside the gates if you fancy a trip into Aberdeen and Tesco is just a 5 minute walk away. Highly recommended site.

First visit

Silverbank Club Campsite
Had a 2night stay at Silverbank which was our first ever visit. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is an immaculately kept site, the pitches and surrounding grass areas were very neat and tidy. The toilet block and dishwashing area were spotless. It is situated a few minutes walk from Banchory and Scott Skinnners pub which serves delicious food is close by. A few hundred yards takes you the Royal Deeside walk which is an easy path to walk, it is quite flat but there is lots to see along the way. We didn’t realise that Crathes Castle was so easy to get to. All in all a lovely it is a lovely site in a lovely area. So nice that as soon as we got home we booked another stay!

Another great stay

Silverbank Club Campsite
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 Club Campsite
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.
