Great location but watch out for the thieving Seagulls!

As motorhome members we find it difficult to find sites that are conveniently located to facilities, as we choose not to bother towing a small car behind us, so we rely on walking or our fold up bikes or public transport, so it is very refreshing to find a site such as this - adjoining the seafront, a short walk to the town and local attractions and the choice of either bus or train connections to Aberdeen etc. The site and facilities are very tidy and clean. The seagulls are a nuisance as other members have reported, but that is a national problem. Having completed a tour which included staying at eight club sites and two weekend stays previous to the tour so a total of ten sites in the last six weeks - it is interesting how each site interprets the COVID-19 guidelines. Southport site in particular are farcical, so I think the club should set out the rules and regulations for their wardens and not leave interpretation of the guidelines to the wardens themselves, so that we members know what to expect at each site.

A seaside gem

A great site in an excellent seaside location, well situated just behind the beach, quiet witb easy access to all facilities. Plenty to see and do despite Covid. The historic town of Stonehaven is well prepared for visitors and has given a lot of thought to visitor safety. Highly recommended!

What a surprise!

This was our first visit to Stonehaven. It appeared to me that the site was a stepping off point for Aberdeen. The site staff were new so could offer no advice. What a surprise to find a delightful town. There is no promenade instead a boardwalk takes you from the site along the beach, to the harbour. Enjoy fresh lobster, straight off the boat! The town has a good selection of shops, a town hall in the main square and some beautiful buildings just back from the sea front. Aberdeen is a bus ride away as the park and rides have a height restrictions for Motorhomes. A nice city but disappointingly quiet. The Covid restrictions have had quite an effect on what should be a vibrant city. Plenty of lovely coastal walks straight off the site. Pretty good cycling as long as you are ok with some steep hills! A well located site and a surprising nice area to explore. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Excellent Site, another great relaxing weekend

Said it all before,a lovely well run and kept CMHC site. New wardens this year, I didnt catch their names, but very pleasant and friendly. In the current climate we can only congractulate them on how good the site was looking and cleanliness can not be faulted. As a previous reviewer pointed out there are seagulls! We certainly on any of our visits have never been particularly aware of them causing problems on site, but we were on the east coast of Scotland and I suppose they can be an issue, having said that on the west cost of Scotland we get midgies. I dont think we can blame wardens on the west cost of Scotland for that really. Well done wardens on keeping a lovely very popular and busy site to the standard that you do. Graeme & Anne.

Seagulls and Long Grass

If you fancy having uninvited visitors in to your awning, helping themselves to your BBQ whilst cooking, covering your car, caravan and wife in poo (not just a little splat)then this is the place for you as you won’t be disappointed! I don’t normally write reviews but given the towns issues with the Seagulls I thought I would make you aware. Just type in Seagulls along with Stonehaven and you will be presented with the facts, they are a total pest and need sorting as driving visitors away. Positive site facts: Toilet facilities were very clean Easy Access for large vans/vehicles Negative site facts: Bins we’re overflowing and didn’t get emptied until late afternoon. Long grass, it was long throughout the entire site and didn’t get mown the time we were here!
