East Balthangie is ideally situated for exploring Banff and Buchan. The site is located 600 feet above sea level, on a very gentle slope/flat area, facing South East, so has the sun for most of the day. The site is bordered by trees on the Northern side, giving shelter from the occasional breeze. The area dedicated to caravans and tents totals approximately 5 acres, with picnic tables, electric hook up and water points, plus all the usual facilities expected at a traditional, but good site. The site tries to re-invent the 50's feel with no long lists of rules, regulations or annoying charges for 'extras'. We cater for visitors who want a quite peaceful site. Pets are very welcome but as we have livestock they must be kept under control, children under strict control. There is a secure dog exercise area and pet gardens.
For bikers and cyclists we also have 'the Bike Bothy' designed for campers too tired to put their tent up.... crash out here for a charge of £12.00 per person per night and make use of the 2 bunk beds, electric sockets, TV and lights - semi-luxury, compared to your 2 man bivvy! The area has a wealth of beautiful and interesting places to visit and enjoy. The Castle and Coastal Trails are within easy reach and of course the Distilleries are always popular. There are Museums and Art Galleries too and there are plenty of walks and country parks to visit. Wildlife is abundant - Deer, pheasants, buzzards and owls are just some of the regular visitors and our herd of nine grazing horses set a very tranquil scene.

The coastline is only 5 miles away to the North, where rugged cliffs, vitrified forts, caves, nooks and crannies are found. Here you will find the famous Pennan Bay, where the film Local hero was shot. To the East, beginning at Aberdeen beach, we have over 50 miles of golden sands running all the way North to Fraserburgh. The area has a wealth of beautiful and interesting places to visit and enjoy.
Eating out poses no problem here as choices vary from the local chippy, Indian or Chinese carryout to good bar meals and restaurants with cuisines to suit most tastes. Or you may wish to stay on site, have a barbecue and truly eat out! At East Balthangie we offer friendly efficient service in a relaxing tranquil atmosphere. We aim to please our customers and if anyone has any special requirements we will do our best to meet them. A dog walking area, farm walk and pet loo are also available.
