Just back from a few days at Braemar - my first since it stopped being a CC site. It was the busiest I have ever seen it mid-week, so it must have gained in popularity. The On-line booking facility worked a treat and allows you to select a pitch.

It is much tidier now and a number of changes have been made. A number of substantial 'camping chalets' are near completion, and I was told that they no not accept large family tents - only small 'backpacker' size.

Other than that, the layout remains the same and the wardens were friendly and helpful as ever. As before, radio reception is almost impossible, although TV must work OK. I don't have one myself and I miss the radio.

WiFi is available at a cost.

In the town itself, work is progressing on a major refurbishment of the Fife arms hotel and a former shop has got planning permission for conversion to a pub. Of course there are still the usual touristy shops and rather expensive cafes.

We live a 90 minute drive from this site and it is in a fabulous setting just off the centre of the village.

We had last visited this site some time ago during the last year it was a Caravan Club site, and it was rather tatty to say the least.

The Invercauld Estate have definitely improved things with the whole site looking a lot tidier. One toilet block has been refurbished and the other is in hand and the site looks much neater overall. Its small details that make the difference, so if you are a CC member it's now safe to return!

We received a warm welcome and the site shop has a range of essential food and toiletry items, maps of the area etc and you can order a range of artisan breads made locally.

If I have one negative comment it was about dog owners - we saw several owners taking their pets to pee on the grass between pitches - this is really not acceptable. The next user of that pitch could have small children and I think the Invercauld Estate perhaps need to remind dog owners that their pooches need to be peeing off site in the Woodland Walk - previously known as the dog walk.

We went for a weekend to check our outfit is 'holiday ready'- and we enjoyed ourselves so much we have already booked a return visit!

This site is easy to find just off the main road in Braemar, with a little road noise which did not bother us at all. It is well laid out with spacious hardstanding pitches with good views of the surrounding countryside.

The toilet/shower block is clean and modern although we did not actually use it as we prefer to use our own facilities. You can order bread and papers for morning delivery although it is only a 5 minute walk down to the village which has a butchers, chemist, cafe and well stocked Co-op plus the usual gift shops.

We were there for two nights and on the first night we had about 6 inches of snow. However the wardens, with their mini snow plough, had the internal roads cleared by mid morning!

We stayed here for four nights. The site is level, well maintained and reasonably sheltered. The facilities are very spacious with drying rooms and the like. The tent area was car free which gave it a nice feel. It was wet and we found the pitches became very soggy. Key fob operated security gates, wifi intermittent and expensive, easy walk into village and friendly staff.

Fantastic spot for exploring the Cairngorms. The Linn of Dee is a must to visit. There are plenty of tourist shops, a Co-op and an excellent butcher. There was only one hotel, selling bottled beer. Another hotel in the village centre was under going major refurbishment and village pub was under construction.

A good place to stay.

We stayed here for over a week (a couple) in our tent and found the site to be perfect for our needs! Lovely flat, well-kept grass, spaced out pitches, lovely wooded surroundings with mountains overlooking us, close to lots of walking and within easy walking distance of the centre of the delightful village of Braemar - which has a great 'chip shop', Co-op, fantastic Outdoor shop and a range of good quality gift shops. We walked round the ruined castle in the village, but didn't find time to visit Braemar Castle itself (we were doing Munros).

Most of the site is clearly dedicated to motorhomes/caravans and camper vans but there was enough space for tents not to feel overwhelmed by the tin box people. One area for tents is car-free which may suit some. We stayed in another area which had electric hook-ups as we are becoming camping wimps in our 'old' age.

There were two toilet blocks, both in spotless condition and with sufficient facilities for the numbers of people using them (I didn't have to wait for anything). Even better, there is a drying room (for outdoor clothes to dry) and a proper boot drying room. (We really needed this one day!). The staff were always lovely and friendly and offered help if they could. The wifi was extra to pay for and a bit hit and miss - but it was the Olympics - so perhaps people were spending time checking up on it. A very international place. We really like Royal Deeside and will be back!

Spent an absolutely glorious week at Braemar caravan park (after being driven out of Loch Lomond by midges!). The wardens were delightful and really helpful in recommending local walks. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The site itself is spotlessly clean as were toilets and showers. Location is stunning and were also blessed with wonderful weather for most of the week. The resident ducks are a delight and it was lovely to watch the soaring buzzards! Braemar itself is a gem with the perfect amount of amenities. Were sorry to leave, so will definitely be back!
