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 campsite, 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, Silverbank Club Campsite makes for a memorable family holiday.

Another lookaround

Silverbank Club Campsite
The site is clean and well maintained and I would come again. Shops/Supermarkets are nearby but not really within walking distance. We chose the site in order to visit Aberdeen, Ballater, Balmoral and Braemar, which we enjoyed. Dolphins at the mouth of the river Dee at the old fort were impressive. The only drawback was the road noise. If you want to try and avoid that go the 4th row of pitches, we had some nice late afternoon sun by selecting a pitch at the eastern side of the site.

Second visit here

Silverbank Club Campsite
Silverbank, Banchory is only 35 minutes drive from my home therefore very easy to get to for a weekend away. Sam and Mark are very nice and helpful wardens who work hard maintaining the high standards at the site. The site is peaceful although there can be a little bit of traffic noise if pitched on the north side of site. We like Silverbank and will definitely visit again. Star gazers will love the pitch black skies at night. Tip - If putting up an awning, I suggest good pegs are needed in this part of the country; I bent a few pegs hammering them into the ground.

If only

Silverbank Club Campsite
Wish this site was closer to home as it has everything we need. In an idea spot for walking & cycling also close to supermarkets & Banchory which is a nice town. We visited 2 national Trust properties nearby. Lovely to be able to walk down to the River in a few minutes. Thanks to the hardworking wardens Mark & Sam.

Perfect for a chill out

Silverbank Club Campsite
Been coming to Silverbank for a few years now and we’ve never been disappointed. It’s nice and flat with generous sized pitches spaced out adequately. The toilet facilities though showing their age are spotlessly clean and tidy. The showers whilst not the most spacious provide piping hot water at a very good pressure. Tesco and Morrisons are an easy walk from the sight with the town of Banchory a little further on. Although there is a busy road adjacent to the site road noise is negligible. The site road is not used as a race track and we saw now evidence of anyone abusing site rules. The wardens who are business like and friendly are alway on the go working to maintain what is a lovely site. Well done to one and all..we will be back.
