I have just returned from a 6 night stay with the dog.

Braemar Caravan Park is in an excellent location for exploring Deeside. A quick 5 minute walk takes you into the heart of Braemar with a variety of eating places and shops. There is also a butcher in the village - great for the BBQ! There are a variety of walks straight from the door, and with the Linn of Dee being just along the road which will take you into the heart of the cairngorms

You could pitch your tent where you liked and tent pitches were flat - although cars must be left in designated areas and not right to your text, which was no problem for me.

Site was quiet whilst I was there and fellow campers extremely friendly - and despite being in the middle of holidays was not over-crowded. Toilets clean and Showers were lovely and hot.

Wifi is available for a small charge, freezer available for ice packs and were happy to charge my mobile phone and camera battery to remember the fabulous scenery.

Staff were very friendly and incredibly helpful - they really couldn't do enough for me.

Overall a fantastic campsite, in an excellent location with fantastic facilities. Also good value for money.

Would I return - Absolutely!

This was our first visit to this site and we were welcomed by Emily and Dean who were very friendly and helpful. Our pitch was excellent and the whole site was immaculate with recycling and regularly emptied bins. It was very dog friendly with an excellent dog walking area. The shower block and toilets were spotless and there were no queues for showers when we were there. It was a lovely quiet site which we would definitely visit again. Emily was extremely helpful when we asked for information about walks and went to the trouble of photo-copying several local fantastic walks for us. We couldn't find fault with this site at all, it was fantastic.

We spent two nights at this campsite in July. The tent area was nice and flat, easy to put pegs in. Showers and toilets are excellent, so is the washing up area. There was plenty of hot water with no push button but just a normal shower which you can leave on as long as you need it, and you can adjust the temperature.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. We booked and paid online in advance and had no trouble getting in. There is a playground, but it almost looks like it's under construction; it has a flying fox (great!) and climbing frame but that's it. I can only assume the owners are planning on adding more. It's good to have something at least!

Braemar itself is walking distance, even with a 4 and 6-year-old. There are some lovely walks in the area (buy a route booklet at the tourist information, I think it was £1. 40 - not expensive anyhow). We walked to Braemar Castle via the Lion's Face - very enjoyable and the castle was a great find. It's Scotland's only community owned castle and the volunteers give fantastic tours!

All in all I would recommend this campsite. Mind you, do take some midge repellent.

Spent a night at this site and never again ground was lumpy and they only have a tidy grass area for tents.

Toilet block was grubby and didn't feel clean.

Liked the dog walking area and it is 10 minute walk into braemar which is an great little village. Braemar and surround area is lovely.

Got a shock at the price as well not good value for money most expensive campsite ive been too.

Will never go back and will never recommend it.

We visited this site a couple of years ago and happy to say still a great place to spend a couple of days. Site is clean and well maintained. Staff friendly, welcoming and helpful. Toilet blocks clean and warm and plenty of hot water (just what is needed after a hard day walking). Small village is easy walking distance with a few local shops, co op for wine etc, no local bakery but excellent butchers selling just what is needed for the camping BBQ. Only complaint (and this is not the sites fault ) is that whilst there are loads of places to eat out none of the venues are dog friendly (one nice place up near the games area is listed as dog friendly and we had a drink there but this is a small bar / BnB and didn't cater to passing trade, we weren't there long enough to check if was possible to book).

Reviewer: Mascot1608 1 review from this member

Have just returned from our 10th annual visit to the Braemar Gathering. As has been our custom over the years, we stayed at the Invercauld Caravan Site. However due to the fact that the Caravan Club no longer runs the site, our booking was made with reservations regarding the cleanliness of the facilities and the overall management of the site. Our worries were unfounded! We arrived to an excellent welcome with the wardens more than accommodating regarding my husband's disability. We were given a site close to the toilet block, which along with the fresh and wastewater points were kept scrupulously clean. May I say a heartfelt 'thank you' for helping to keep our annual visit to Braemar an absolute pleasure.
