We have been advised that this site is now closed, and is being redeveloped for housing.

If you know that this situation has changed in the future, please could you let us know. Many thanks

Stayed here in May. Owner very helpful. Toilets and showers very clean, as was the whole site. Lovely base for touring and golf course just up the road. No shop on site, but shop in village. Site very quiet and peaceful. I think the sole owner of this site is doing a splendid job, under the circumstances, as I was told that her husband had just passed away recently! Well done you for carrying on with this site. You are doing a good job.

A nice little site with decent facilities and in a nice area. Owners were very nice and helpful and there is plenty to see in the area. Showers could do with upgrading. A bit of noise from the dual carriageway was evident. If you are visiting to go walking etc. It is a good site but for eating out or pubs it's a bit out of the way. You are not too far from Aberdeen for visitor attractions and quite close to the Aberdeenshire coast line.

Pretty poor site, only 1 shower for each sex. We were only there 2 nights, the first day the ladies one was broken (20p's machine for shower was jammed), while I can't blame them for that it is a poor show that there was nothing else to offer, my wife had to use our van shower. Even when it was fixed she spent 20p for a cold shower until another lady showed her the knack to get a hot shower - run the hot tap on the sink nearest the shower until it gets hot whilst running the shower water, then put the 20p in - obvious really?!?! The facilities appear to be 20 years out of date (I'm being benevolent) I don't think there has been any improvements or update in that time - perhaps they are going for the 'Theme' since it was a second world war airbase.

We were packed in the site like sardines - no European standard pitch sizes here.

At 19 per night (June/off peak)for a caravan with 2 adults this is extremely poor value.

We will only back if it is the last site in Scotland!

Sadly we did experience personal problems with the owners.

During our overnight stay the toilet block was accessed by a key. This we had no problem with. What we did find was the toilets were a little unclean, as there are no brushes to wipe the pan with after use. The wardens have admitted that the toilets are cleaned twice a day-unfortunately from our stay from 1. 30pm until 9am the next morning-the male toilets had not been cleaned, and the toilets were very uninviting.

At 25. 00 per night per unit, I would have expected a lot more facilities on site. Ideal for just a overnight stop-over.

Although the above did spoil our visit, the site was ok.

The site is excellent, well drained and with good facilities. It was kept clean and tidy, and had everything a family of 4 needed for a good holiday. While we were there, we had some trouble with our car.

We fetched basic supplies from the local shop in Auchenblae, about 30 mins walk. The shop sold fresh bread, milk, eggs, bacon, ham etc. As well as newspapers and local produce.

The site owners could not have been more helpful. Apart from freezing our ice packs and checking the facilities at least twice a day, they also ensured that the site was quiet at night. They even ran my husband into Laurencekirk to fetch the car when it was fixed.

We will be going back. This is a stunning part of the world. Coastal towns and villages are rugged but beautiful, and the hills nearby are spectacular. We had an amazing day climbing Clachnaben, a local mountain. (well, nearly a mountain) Local supermarkets included Tesco and Morrisons in Banchory, both with petrol.

The only downside to this site is that the tent area is next to the popular play area. Great if you have small kids, a bit noisy otherwise.
