Enjoyable Stay

Excellently situated site with plenty to do in the local area including lovely walks, lots of castles and great places to eat. Highly recommend Raemoir Garden Centre for nice lunches and afternoon teas. If you visit Drum Castle make sure you visit the huge Mains of Drum Garden Centre which also does great food. This was our second visit and we will certainly be coming back.

A nice spot to stay.

Oval in shape with a nice lawned area in the centre, this site is immaculately kept and is a pleasant place to stay. All pitches are hard standing, level and generous in size. The ground takes a peg quite easily. There is a bit of road noise so the best pitches are at the rear. There’s also a sawmill on the eastern side of the site which generates some intermittent noise so look for a pitch on the west side near the rear. There was no 4G signal here (O2) so that was a disappointment. The on-site wi-fi is OK for emails and the like but not much else. I usually tether to my phone for internet so bear that in mind if you’re an O2 customer. I can't comment on other providers.The shower cubicles are tight. Breathe in when dressing! Banchory is a nice small town and I found it pleasant to walk round. It’s very handy for touring and there are castles aplenty, with Aberdeen a nice and handy day out. We had a special lunch in "Amerone" on Union Street and whilst expensive it was wonderful.There are Tesco and Morrisons supermarkets close by the site.

Quality in the face of adversity

These are difficult times challenging to one and all. Step up the Caravan Club! This was our first time in Banchory so we didn’t know what to expect. We were very impressed by the friendly welcome we received and the straight forward, succinct way in which vital information was conveyed. The site is nice and flat, well laid out and immaculately maintained. Covid restrictions were in place and for the most part adhered to and well policed by the wardens. The town of Banchory is about a one mile walk away which is easy going. However It is a one horse town, not worth the effort especially during these times. Tesco is a five minute walk away with Morrison being slightly longer in the opposite direction. We had good weather which helped but all in all I have nothing negative to say about this site. First class in every respect. Well done Caravan Club! We’re already booked for next month.

Love this site

We have stayed here a few times over the past couple of years due to fishing on the Dee. Last year we experience problems with our outfit following a severe power outage when we had to leave the site. It is a pity that the problems have not been fixed completely 12 months on as half of the site was shut. However that probably helped the Covid restrictions on the facilities with less people on site than expected. The facilitles are a little dated but still very clean and we experienced no issues with access when we wanted. Will stay again.

Lovely smaller friendly site

An excellent well located site situated on all main roads/routes. It is a smaller site which we prefer, well maintained, clean and tidy run by by friendly and helpfull wardens. Banchory is a good 15 minute walk away, but buses pass by the site and Tesco and Morrisons nearby for supplies. Highly recommended for a relaxing break and an excellent last stop for us on our tour of Deeside.

Excellent staff in trying conditions.

This was our second Club site stay as new members, recently joined. We arrived 3rd August. We were warned about the electrical issue, and were fine with that. We have a leisure battery in the campervan. Staff were excellent and helpful. We did move pitch once to one with electricity and this was not a big issue at all. Again, staff very helpful. We decided to stay another night. Great for fell running and cycling; and lovely well maintained campsite.

Mains failure

Arrived on site 2nd august set up van and awning next morning 7am no power this continues for most of the day with the warden taking abuse from fellow members.as the club have known about this problem for about the last 5 years . I know the club has supposedly upgraded the mains but this is what happens when you use inferior equipment as I am electrical . Meanwhile we had to dismantle awning and move pitch. Phone the club no response as usual couldn’t care attitude.meanwhile wardens dealing with COVID 19 precautions as well as the issue of no mains to half the site .no wonder you lose so many good wardens

Great for outdoor activities

Lovely, clean site with friendly staff. Would have liked to see a hand sanitizer at the gated dog compound, given the amount of people touching the gates and latch. Great location for cycling by the river or in a forest relatively nearby. Tesco and Morrisons really close by, so perfect, Banchory town centre felt a bit run down. Some garden centres closeby that we didn’t get a chance to visit this time. We will be back.

Summer hols

We stayed at Silverbank 12th -17th August . The site is immaculate and the wardens take great pride in its appearance. Unfortunately whilst we were there that site had an issue with the electric supply, the wardens worked tirelessly to sort the issue and made every effort to keep everyone upto speed with the problem. We can't praise them enough for all their hard work they put in.
