What we think about this camping?

Tarland by Deeside Camping & Caravanning Club Site

Small well maintained camp site 50 km from Aberdeen, situated in a rural area with marked hiking trails. Camping Tarland is very rural in the basin of the River Dee. Queen Victoria chose this beautiful area in 1850 to found a summer residence, Balmoral Castle, which is still a favorite place for the royal family. The castle and gardens are partially open to the public. The river Dee is also known as a good "salmon" river. To the town of Tarland you walk in 5 minutes. Besides some shops and a few restaurants you will find a golf course where non-members are also welcome. In Aboyne at 10 km there is a swimming pool and the month of July is the festival month. Highland games are held there in August. There is a limited bus connection with the "granite city" Aberdeen (about 50 km) with a stop at 1 km from the campsite. On one of the 52 tourist pitches you can count on a quiet and pleasant stay.
