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.

Just back from a weekend stay. This is a beautiful site and the wardens are friendly and helpful. The toilet blocks were spotless as usual. After reading reviews that the site was rundown am so pleased to see that this was not the case !

We had a very pleasant peaceful stay. There was plenty of things for our son to do he took a short walk over to the Nordic Ski Center and went tubing.

He also had a dip in the river Devon spent hours in the park and played tennis at the tennis courts we never had time to fit in a trip to the swimming pool.

The supermarkets are nice and close for stocking up on supplies and we also visited Deans shortbread factory where my son stocked up on his biscuit supplies.

I would highly recommend this site as we always come home wishing we could have stayed longer.

Just spent a week at Huntly Castle. Very well maintained site. We were on the camping field with the barbecue cooking area in the middle. The pitch was not regimented and we had plenty of room for most of the time as the site seemed quiet.

We were not troubled by unruly children as there were hardly any on site and those that were did not make any excessive noise.

We were told the nearest toilet block was unavailable so we had to walk to the block further away which was a little inconvenient in the middle of the night or first thing. It was very clean however with hot water and the showers very good.

The hairdryer was the type you have to hold a button down to make it work which hurts after a while. Most annoyingly the block nearest to the camping field was reopened at the end of the week we think due to more tourers arriving but sadly the showers were out of bounds. In addition the hand dryers were also not working.

We had not been able to wash the pots in hot water either until we mentioned it as to give them their due, the wardens helped and it was resolved. We felt the rates were pricey but we found all the wardens friendly but not overbearing as some sites can be.

About the area itself, we had a great time and found Huntly quiet with a few shops. The local Chinese and Indian take-away supplied us with a lovely evening meal but you are very close to Tesco and Asda for shopping if you wish.

We would recommend Dufftown which is 14 miles away for a meal out as it has several small restaurants and a pub which has been recently renovated which was nice. The famous Glen fiddich Distillery is in the town which is worth a look.

We visited the Speyside Cooperage, Loch Ness, Aviemore, The Cairngorms and Fort Agustus which were well worth the trip from Huntly and a good day trip.

Overall we would love to visit the area again and would consider Huntly, Not sure much for children to do as we are older campers with no children to entertain so cannot really comment.
