Nice break with quiet surroundings., showers still a bit weak but adequate. . Exiting the park was tight as you turn past wooden fence.. No real issues and we will back soon.. Will book earlier to get a pitch by the river..

Ballater was an excellent site, everything very neat and new after the flooding a few years ago. Would definitely go back. Unfortunately a lot of rain fell in a short period when we were there, so our awning and everything in it ended up in 2 inches of water! It did... Ballater was an excellent site, everything very neat and new after the flooding a few years ago. Would definitely go back. Unfortunately a lot of rain fell in a short period when we were there, so our awning and everything in it ended up in 2 inches of water! It did drain away quickly once the heavy rain stopped though and I think our pitch (8) was the only one that suffered, 7 and 9 were also effected but had motorhomes on them so didn’t cause them any problems. It was an unusual amount of water that fell in a short period of time, so we were probably just unlucky. Will definitely revisit, lessoned learned on our part, don’t leave stuff on the ground in the awning when going out if rain is expected. :)
