This fine CL is situated about 3 mls outside of Banchory, on Royal Deeside, along a side road of decent width, so no problems with traffic. This very peaceful, well sheltered site has 5 large Hardstanding, serviced pitches, toilets and free shower and all for £12pn. There are also 5 pods and 4 cabins on the site but we were not bothered by excessive noise from those that were occupied. There is an old abandoned railway line opposite the gate which leads into Brathens Woods and is ideal for walking ones dog(s). There are lots of places of interest in the area to suit all taste. Numerous castles, Crathes & Drum being the closest, Balmoral is about 30 mls away and beyond that there's Braemar and Glen Shee. Scolty Tower, behind Banchory makes for a pleasant although steepish walk and for the more adventurous the Cairngorm Hills are quite close. For the cyclist there's the Deeside way, which in part utilises the old railway line from Aboyne to Ballater. Banchory has both a Tesco and Morrisons and both have petrol filling stations, as well as the usual tourist shops and cafes etc. We would certainly not hesitate to use this site again.
