Alan Rogers Review

There are plenty of excellent walking choices available from Silverbank Caravan and Motorhome Club Site, including some lovely dog walks. The site is an open location just off the Aberdeen to Braemar Road; it runs parallel with the River Dee through some 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 here, you will want to take the time to visit Cairngorm National Park. It has 62 hard standing pitches, some seasonal, all with 16 amp electricity.

Aberdeen is the capital of the Grampian Highlands and Britain's Cleanest City. Just some of the highlights the 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. 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. Crathes Castle which has an adventure playground for children, Drum Castle and Gardens, and the beautiful castle and grounds at Balmoral are all close by.

N.B. Non-members may join on site and make a substantial saving on pitch fees, please speak to site staff for more details and to check pitch availability before arrival.
