We have just spent a lovely 5 nights on this site. It is a small level site on the outskirts of Banchory. Site staff were helpful and the loos and showers were great. All the pitches are large hardstanding, so the van, awning and car are all on the hardstanding. There is a both a big Tesco and Morrisons within walking distance of the site. The only drawback of its position is that there is traffic noise from the main road.

We cycled from the site to Aboyne along the Deeside way, which is a long distance path from Aberdeen to Ballater. It is billed as suitable for walkers, cyclists and horses. Although it is not a mountain bike route, I would not recommend doing it on road bikes with skinny wheels because of the surface, which varies between compacted cinder paths and much looser gravelly sections. There is also a chunk in a forest, which we avoided by using the road, but this adds a lot of miles to the route. We also took the bike on the car to Aboyne, to do the section from there up to Ballater.

The caravan site has a leaflet and pdf on the website of a short 4 mile cycle loop to Crathes Castle. We used this as a walking route to the castle, and round the grounds, which is well worth a visit.

Beautiful location, lovely open site. Just a 15 minute walk from Banchory. Friendly staff and amazing facilities as expected with a club site. Great for walks, on the Deeside way. Morrisons on your doorstep for all your shopping so no need to stock up before you leave. A site we'll definitely go back to.

Booked this site due to its proximity to Aberdeen and stonehaven. Both are easily accessible from this site. Situated on the main A9 road into the village centre. Lovely little site. Immaculate pitches and facilities as expected with caravan club sites. Large Tesco within easy walking distance. Also Morrisons slightly further but easily walkable. The village centre is about two miles away along the A9. Road noise was a slight disturbance but not excessive so. The 202 bus to Aberdeen and stonehaven stops outside the site entrance. Very friendly wardens.

We will certainly return to this site

Just back from 4 nights at this site. As previously said site is faultless, very clean toilets and no queuing with site full. Site is beside busy a93 and a lot of road noise can be heard also sawmill had forklifts working from 6. 30 in the morning, reversing buzzers all day. The track to the deeside way is a muddy track down the side of the site from the main road and no foot path from site entrance.

We were really quite impressed with this site. On the side of the main road so some traffic noise - but quiet enough during the night not to bother us. Just below the site is the Dee River, the footpath along the river takes you right into town without going along the main road.

Whole site is immaculately kept by the wardens, pitches are hardstanding and very big. Motorhome dump point, ehu etc that you expect from CC sites.

As per previous post only 1 facilities block, 3 showers in ladies. Despite site being nearly full we didn't have to queue once. As always toilets and showers spotless. Wardens were helpful and friendly - office was open 9am-11am and 2pm-5pm.

We rode the Deeside Way bike path down to Aberdeen and back. You can get on a few yards from the site. Almost flat ride practically all on cycle paths right into the city. It's 17 miles each way but very easy ride and well worth the views as you cycle alongside the Dee.

Not sure we could fault this site, well placed for the coast and Braemar etc. Tesco less than 5 minutes walk across the road, town has everything you could need.

Silverback as previous reviewers have said is a nice campsite very open surrounded by trees. However although the facilities are spotless there are not enough showers for the size of the site so expect to queue unless you get up very early. There are a few negatives these being:

One of the wardens can sometimes be quite snappy

One of the prime pitches is always closed marked off with cones as this is where the warden keeps her large jeep.

You are not allowed to arrive before 12 so when you arrive after that the office is closed what is the point in that.

There does appear to be rules for some and not others we had a visitor and was told they had to park in the tiny car park outside the site but others were allowed to take cars to pitches one in particular stayed overnight parked on the walkway.

We particularly did not appreciate the warden taking her horse on site and allowing it to urinate right outside the office/shop where the smell hung about for quite a while.

Banchory itself is a lovely place to visit with plenty to see and do. There are a couple of very nice garden centres.
