We only spent one night here, but we will definitely be back. The site is spotlessly clean and well maintained, with a lot of time, effort and money been spent in getting the shower blocks and other amenities to such a high standard.

This family run site is the way we'd ALL like a site to be run, complete with a reasonably priced shop on site that's also run by the family.

Banff is an easy & pleasant 30 minute stroll away (I'm told Whitehills is approximately the same to the West) where there are pubs & take-aways, but not many restaurants, which we didn't find a problem. The walk would be dismal on a wet day, but keep your fingers crossed for good weather.

I've only marked the Child friendliness down a wee bit from 10 because of the close proximity to the beach, but responsible parenting would take any risk away.

The site is right next to the beautiful beach which underlines that we will be back soon, hopefully this August, for a weekend if not longer.

While staying on this lovely site my consumer unit trip switch would not reset and we were left without any power to the sockets. Jim who runs the site came straight away to check it out. He discovered that part of the unit was faulty and needed replacing. Thinking we would be without power to the sockets ( no heating?) etc. Jim drove off only to come back with a replacement part that would get us underway until we got home, refusing to take any payment. The site is very well kept and a pleasure to stay on. We are planning to come back again next year. Many Thanks.

We had seen mixed reviews for this site, and having last visited to suss it out many years ago where we had major concerns. We decided to actually come and stay here having popped in last week when we were in the area and were pleased with some of the changes.

This is a beautifully kept site, with very well delineated, roomy pitches. We chose to be between the sea and the burn [quieter for us as although we have a 12 year old, we aren't noisy]. We would of loved to be right by the sea, however the angle of the slope and us not having a motor mover ruled that out. However, the pitches are so roomy, that we were able to position our unit with a clear view to the sea even with both pitches in front occupied.

The welcome at reception was great and I noted that there was a well stocked wee shop also [which we didn't need].

The toilet block was spotless [and although this is June. It's been very cold] and warm. The showers were roomy enough, very hot water [possibly to hot for some as there is no way to adjust the temp] and had plenty of pressure.

There is a great park [even for our techy 12 year old] plus a superb beach that is suitable for paddling- surfing as it's wide and has a very gentle slope to it. At the far end [opposite end to reception] you cross the burn and there you can get onto a great walk/cycle path to Whitehills. So ideal for walking the dog.

At Whitehills is a fantastic fish and chip shop [which we would definitely recommend. Nearby Banff has a good co-op and tesco.

For those who like wildlife, we can highly recommend a trip along to Troup head RSPB area. You can see gannets, razorbills. And if you time it right and are lucky puffins too.

This site definitely ticked all our boxes and we will certainly return.

Good - Location lovely beach, playpark nearby (though not associated with Caravan site). Walking distance to Banff 40mins.

Bad - Uninterested staff. Wash facilities; no hand dryer so paper towels either strewn on the floor or depleted completely. Showers: just the one light working in the middle shower only. Either side had to shower in near darkness. No shower curtain! How can you dress in a puddle and soaked clothes? Not even a coat hook just the broken remains to tease you.

500 spent would improve these frankly silly errors in hospitality.

After a year of absence due to work commitments, we made it back to the wonderful Banff Links site. The weather was bad, and it made no difference. The dog and I got soaked walking the very pleasant hike to Whitehills, but we didn't mind. We parked on our usual pitch between the sea and the burn, and just relaxed watching the waves rolling onto the huge beach.

A welcome return to Banff after 2/3 years. The site hasn't changed, despite new management. Staff a bit stand-offish. Toilet block just as basic, and water pressure very poor - had to stand almost with head against the wall to get wet - all showers the same. Reasonable site charges, although 3 per night for a very small porch awning is excessive.

The main area of the site, surrounding reception, gets a bit busy in peak season - we always park along towards the far end of the site, where is is much quieter.

Now the good news - what a place! Everything you need right there. Excellent (raw) fish shop and first class restaurant (Rockfish) at Whitehills. Wonderful beach, coastal villages, cycle tracks, walks, etc, etc. Historic attractions well within reach. Very good surfing club on the links - our son is hooked! Going back for the surfing in October.

Banff itself is looking a bit sad, run-down. We noticed the difference immediately. Co-op better than the poor Tesco. There is no butcher worth speaking of - nearest is Huntly, where there is also a decent Tesco, but worth the trip.
