Although wash/toilet facilities are shut, from previous visits they are very clean. Shops are only a 5 min walk away. Plenty takeaways and restaurants to choose from if you don’t want to cook. Lots of lovely walks and attractions to visit also. We will be returning once they open back up. Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing visit.

This will be our 4th stay at the campsite, we love the location and cleanliness of campsite. Also how quiet it is in an evening, obviously it’s different this year with no toilet facilities, however we are lucky to be self contained in our motorhome .

"First snow this winter"

Our 2nd stay at Ballater and there is no doubt we will return, hopefully when all facilities will be open. A very warm welcome once again. Lovely location, plenty of walking and cycling from the site - no need to move the Mohome. The snow did not stop us getting out -... Our 2nd stay at Ballater and there is no doubt we will return, hopefully when all facilities will be open. A very warm welcome once again. Lovely location, plenty of walking and cycling from the site - no need to move the Mohome. The snow did not stop us getting out - only a dusting at site level but a bit more on the hills. Hope the site will extend its opening period again next year.

"Another great visit"

We don't normally use our motorhome in November but am so glad we did. Again, we had a super pitch by the river and with most of the leaves off the trees we had even better views. Check in was quick and very efficient, as is required in these times, and staff friendly... We don't normally use our motorhome in November but am so glad we did.

The short walk into the centre of Ballater is very pleasant and although we hadn't travelled far we really felt we were on holiday.
