Overview

  • Campsite is located within a National Park

    Site within National Park

Enjoy this peaceful Aberdeenshire campsite in the in the east 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 table tennis and a 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 Lochnagar Distillery Visitor Centre. Braemar west of Balmoral has a castle and the Braemar Highland Heritage Centre. The town is also a popular centre for walking and mountain biking, with no less than 30 Munros 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.

We found the site easily and were welcomed by Izzy the manager, who is very friendly and helpful, Izzy was without her assistant while we were there but still made time to speak to us and tell us about the village and facilities there. Although it is a small village it has 2 pubs, a spar, toy shop, chemist and coffee shop, also a lovely craft shop to browse around. The village is approximately 10 minutes walk from the site. The walks in the nearby wood were well signposted and we saw lovely scenery and wildlife, it's a great site for seeing birds and the information board is a great idea. The toilets and showers are very bright, clean and warm. They also have a games and information room which is a great idea for campers, especially if it's raining! The hard standing was level which helps when you have a campervan. We will be recommending the site to friends and will visit again. Thanks for a pleasant stay.

This is a great site, run by a great team and I for one will be sorry to see the end of the partnership. Nothing has ever been too much trouble for Andy and his "helpers". However, we will still continue to support the new Site Manager and will be on site again in the spring. It's a great site and we find it very relaxing but still manage a lot of walking - and shopping!
