Overview

  • Campsite is located within a National Park

    Site within National Park

Enjoy this peaceful Aberdeenshire campsite in the in the west of Scotland just outside the Cairngorms National Park, in an area favoured by royalty.

The Club’s Tarland by Deeside campsite lies just outside the Cairngorms National Park and shares the same stunning scenery as Balmoral Castle. The area surrounding the site is tranquil and exceptionally beautiful and rich in historic and prehistoric sites.

This beauty and tranquillity flows into our Tarland campsite. Trees line the site and are dotted throughout separating camping pitches into smaller, more intimate areas. The site has a wooded dog walk, a recreation room with pool table and TV.

The village of Tarland is a five minute walk from site and has shops, a golf course and bowling green. From here you can pick up the ten kilometre Tarland Way walking and cycle path which runs from the village to Aboyne.

Excursions from site should include Balmoral Castle and the Royal Lochnager Distillery Visitor Centre. Braemer west of Balmoral has a castle and the Braemer Highland Heritage Centre. The town is also a popular centre for walking and mountain biking, with no less than 30 Munroes within the immediate area. Scotland’s highest 18 hole golf course is here too. Visit the Glenlivet Estate which includes the Tomintoul Museum, Glenlivet Distillery and Blairfindy Castle.
