This a very spacious and well laid out ‘affiliated’ Caravan Club site only 5 minutes easy walk from the town centre and ruined castle.

The hard standing pitches are laid in three main circular cul-de-sac’s areas around a central green, with three toilet blocks. An adult only area is available for those seeking refuge from the kids. A separate location is set for tenters. Lots of mature hedges and trees provide adequate shelter and privacy.

The toilet blocks are clean and modern, but wash up areas are archaic, small outside (covered) spaces – not what you would expect at £ 25. 00/night!

WiFi is available at an extortionate £ 6. 00/day hotel rate.

Huntly town has local shops and large Tesco & Asda supermarkets located at opposite edges of town.

Nice, very spacious quite site with friendly and helpful staff, great stop over site to use whilst touring Scotland.

This was our first visit to the site, for the May weekend, with two groups of friends, and 7 children between us. The site was very well maintained, and we had three adjoining pitches, with electric hookup. The pitches were big, plenty of space for the car at the side, or even larger tents. The kids all had freedom to play, and really enjoyed the campsite.

The wardens were very friendly and helpful on arrival. Toilets and showers all clean and plenty of hot water, and the site well maintained. You can follow paths out of the site to Huntly Castle, and there is a large playpark near the Nordic Ski Centre, by the River Deveron.

Huntly itself does not have so much to offer, albeit it was a Sunday when we wandered in, but town was extremely quiet and we struggled to find somewhere decent for lunch. We tried a couple of the hotels which weren't overly friendly or accommodating. It appeared that you needed to book ahead, even though nowhere was packed to capacity. The Gordon Arms Hotel directed us next door to Cheers pub, which shares the same kitchen, but we took one look at the place and turned around, definitely not somewhere you'd want to take your kids to. On our way back to the campsite, we noticed that the Golf Club was open to non-members and we were made very welcome and the club house was lovely inside as you would expect. It wasn't a problem to serve 9 of us at short notice, the bar and kitchen staff very friendly, and very reasonable prices too. We ate from the Snack Menu, and there was also another menu which did more traditional Sunday lunch meals.

For May weekend, and a large campsite in its doorstep, Huntly didn't seem geared up for an influx of campers and missed a trick.

However, ASDA and Tesco are handy for BBQ supplies. The area around Huntly is lovely, there are many distilleries and we went to the Glenfiddich Distillery, which does an hour tour free of charge. There is complementary tasting at the end, and there is a lovely cafe. Our friends used the swimming pool in Huntly, which they enjoyed and has a jacuzzi.

I would recommend this site, and would definitely go back with the kids.

This is one of our favourite sites. This was our second visit of the year and we have another trip booked for September.

Nice spacious site with friendly, helpful wardens and in a lovely scenic location. Well defined pitches with TV hook-up point and children's play areas in the centre of the park. Toilet blocks are modern and cleaned regularly although on this occasion we found the showers a bit hot and mentioned it to the warden.

Site is well run and cared for. Lots of wild rabbits wandering about too which the kids love.

Huntly is a short walk away with an Asda and Tesco plus local shops available. Tubing, bike hire and additional play parks within a five minute walk. Also the substantial ruins of Huntly Castle are close by which are worth a visit.

The falconry centre is a short drive away and again worth a visit with regular flying displays and a small restaurant as well.

Had a really good weekend at Huntly, site and pitches are really well laid out. Kids were happy with the play area and the toilets and showers were clean and tidy (showers were really hot, but I mentioned this to wardens who said they can easily turn it down so may have already done it)

Will definitely be back. Nice location and can easily walk into Huntly centre and to a large park by the river, lots of other things to do a short drive away.

Just returned from another wonderful weekend at Huntly Castle. Beautifully managed site, large pitches with plenty of space for everything. TV aerial point at each pitch ensures a good signal.

Separate areas for adults only and families, and also dog friendly, with plenty of walks around the parks and castle nearby.

Large Tesco and Asda nearby, and also within easy walking distance of the town centre, which has plenty of places to eat and drink as well as a host of local shops.

Whilst wifi is available throughout the site, it is quite expensive at £2 per hour or £6 per day.

My wife and I when visiting friends in Keith decided to try this campsite rather than book a hotel, or stay indoors.

This site is an absolute gem. At reception we were met by the duty wardens and they were very friendly and helpful. We are new to camping (tent) and the facilities on offer are the best we have had up until now.

The shower and toilet blocks are spotless, and there was a handy BBQ cooking shelter on hand which allowed us to prepare our own food despite poor weather.

The site is spacious, quiet, and many pitches are well protected from the elements as there are trees surrounding and dividing the site. The initial pitch offered to us was slightly waterlogged due to the recent rainfall, but we were able to select our own which came with electrical hookup.

We will use this site again next time we are up in the North East of Scotland.
