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.

Excellent site

Silverbank Club Campsite
Silverbank is a brilliant site, run by two of the loveliest wardens we have ever met. MARK AND SAM YOU ARE TERRIFIC. The facilities are clean and regularly attended to. It's a joy to go to this site, we return regularly to this site and I always keep my fingers crossed that the wardens are Mark and Sam. Love you guys. Xxxx

Wonderful Site

Silverbank Club Campsite
Sam and Mark work so hard to keep this site immaculate. Mark was waiting as we arrived and told us to find a pitch then return to Reception for Sam to do the formalities. Sam was efficient in checking us in and in providing the ice creams!!! The pitch was a very good size and had even been weeded!!!! The Disabled Facilities were clean and tidy and unlike some sites had a shower curtain to help keep the room dry. The washing machine and dryer was explained by Sam and was easy to use. Sam helped with advice on local attractions and places to eat. Crathes Castle is worth a visit but be prepared when visiting the Castle itself to be able to use the stone spiral staircases to access all the other levels, these are uneven and narrow in both tread and depth. The Walled Garden is worth visiting and has seats to stop and admire. Ballater is not very far and should be visited. Scot Skinners is a local pub which serves food but it is advisable to book in advance, would definitely recommend. This site is one of the better club sites we stayed at and Sam and Mark should be commended in keeping the site in very good and tidy condition.

Fabulous site

Silverbank Club Campsite

Banchory is one of our favourite sites. It is a beautiful and very, very well maintained site. We can’t comment on the facilities because we didn’t use them but we spoke to people on the site who did and they said they were spotless which is in keeping with the rest of the site. Mark and Samantha are hard working wardens, they are professional, helpful and friendly. It is obvious that they take great pride in their work and site. The 1pm check in is not great if you are only able to go for one night due to work commitments but this is not the wardens fault, they have a job to do and are only following the rules.

A previous reviewer has mentioned fully serviced pitches and that would be a fantastic addition to this site.

Perfect - Peace and Quiet and Well Managed

Silverbank Club Campsite
This is a lovely wee site under the efficient management of Mark & Samantha. Well situated for Banchory town centre and with a Tesco virtually across the road. If only all sites were like this, but maybe I was lucky - hardly any dogs and hardly any noisy children!! PS Try The Cowshed for great Fish & Chips - just past Raemoir Garden Cenre!
