Enjoy this peaceful Aberdeenshire campsite 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 also has a wooded dog walk.

The village of Tarland is a five minute walk from the campsite 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 campsite 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.
