Glenmore campsite offers everything you could wish for from a camping holiday – refreshment, relaxation and the outdoor lifestyle. The site offers a unique combination of landscapes and mountainous views with complete forest immersion. And did we mention the direct access to the beaches of Loch Morlich, what more could you want? 

The Cairngorms National Park covers a beautiful 4,528km2. Its breathtaking backdrops are dominated by rolling mountains, whilst lochs, heathlands, forests and grassy expanses fill everything in-between, like a natural patchwork thousands of years in the making. Sitting like a pin-point within this incredible park is our Glenmore Campsite.

Tucked neatly between the thousands of ancient pine trees that populate Glenmore Forest Park, this campsite indulges in the Scottish highlands, but it's willing to share. 

Enter the site and you’ll be immediately impressed with the surroundings. Dotted throughout the towering trees are open, well-kept pitches. The rugged outdoor feel is still there though, with the option to go for pitches amongst the trees, and the highlands always in sight.

A very short walk through the treeline gives access to the sandy beaches of Loch Morlich, one of this campsite’s many appeals. From the water's edge enjoy the panoramic views of mountains, forests and waters.

The Cairngorms National Park is a magnet for outdoor and nature enthusiasts, and it’s not hard to see why. The area is abundant with wildlife. Deer, otters, ospreys and even golden eagles are often spotted. More than 280km of footpaths and trails criss-cross its diverse lands. There is canoeing and kayaking on Loch Morlich and, of course, many mountains provide a challenge across all seasons. Come winter time, take to the slopes on skis or a snowboard and experience some of the UK's finest runs.

Other attractions near our Glenmore Campsite include the Strathspey Steam Railway, Cairngorm Mountain Railway and the Cairngorm Mountain Centre.

Enjoy your next holiday at Glenmore. This magnificent area is something everyone should see, and our Glenmore campsite is where they should see it from.

My Review of Glenmore
Just home from a three day camping holiday, campsite is big, plenty room for everyone. Campsite itself is clean, toilet block reasonably clean but showers are dated, push the button style which are ridiculous to use and also means you cant set the temperature you want. We tried to book electric hook up with our tent pitch but no hook ups available but thought there would be at least one socket available in the toilet/shower block to dry hair etc but none, not even one in the laundry which was very surprised at given the price we were charged. Our friends were there too in there caravan with electric hook up but somehow we were more expensive for a tent with no electric!!! And we had to pay extra for having an extra car, complete rip off, been to much better equipped campsites for half the price. I know it states there are midges on the site but it is horrendous some nights so beware and be prepared.

J Walsh review of Glenmore
A fantastic site great for walking or water sports on the loch. Plenty to do in the area if you want to be active or you can just relax on the beach at Loch Morlich which is right next to the site. We stayed here the first two weeks in August and had a great time, showers and toilets are well maintained and electric hook up was good, no tripping out. The only thing against this site was some of the people who used it, those who obviously thought it is below them to clean the floor of the shower after they used it, those who drove the wrong way round the one way system as it was a shorter way to the gate and those who didn't clean up after their dog. I don't know if those people were members or not, but I never once saw a member of staff stop a car driving the wrong way or speak to a person who just walked away after their dog fouled the site. I have to say I was saddened by the behaviour of quite a few of the people on site, All my family loved the area and my son spent most afternoons at the loch, either kayaking or just playing in the water and on the sand. But I didn't feel the staff enforced any rules and because of this we wont be using any camping in the forest sites again.

Ade review of Glenmore
This is the second time we have stayed at this site which although relatively secluded is excellent if you like Cycling / walking /water sports. There is a small cafe / shop just off site which sells basics and has a great little cafe section selling chips and pies etc. The location is beautifull and the only down side would be if it rained as limited in door activities in area. The only down side to the entire site that we can see is there are no individual wash basins in toilets. An excellent run site which understands that children do want to play ball games and ride there bikes.

alex review of Glenmore
Site was good size, hot water at shower block even with a good 4 inches of snow. Would be perfect if other campers respected others space around their pitch and not just let their kids run around others units while they are setting up theirs. Not the campsites fault

Glynis review of Glenmore
Paradise! We have stayed here several times over the years and the stunning views over Loch Morlich and the Cairngorm Mountains never fail to take my breath away. You can sit on the beach, take a short stroll in the forest or go for a long walk in the mountains. It is paradise for dogs as well but take a pair of tweezers as they tend to acquire ticks. The toilet blocks are kept very clean and the shower cubicles are nice and spacious.
Review by: Glynis
We have just returned from our tenth year holidaying at Glenmore, we love the surroundings but unfortunately the wardens are not the most friendly! They can't even be pleasant enough to smile or say hello as they pass you, in fact they would go out their way to avoid you. They are extremely dictatorial! Their attitude is certainly not needed on such a lovely campsite!

ANNE GRAHAM review of Glenmore
Arrived to find part of camp site closed due to snow and frozen facilities but we parked up amongst the pine trees and then could step out to the sandy shore of the loch, although due to cold temperatures decided not to swim. Rest of family went off skiing, extra buses had been laid on to take skiers up to the mountain, as a non skier I took bus into Aviemore. Bus stops outside the camp, there is also a small shop on the site and winter sports equipment could also be hired here. Plenty of walks in the area for various levels of fitness. Only downside due to the weather, was that the walk to the washing/toilet block was treacherous in parts due to icy paths. Staff very friendly.

Liz Bishop review of Glenmore
We have just returned from a fantastic holiday at Glenmore...The reception staff and wardens were lovely and friendly..the site was spotless and very well kept..a real credit to the staff...The access to the lake and beach was lovely..the children enjoyed swimming in the loch and collecting pine cones...The toilets were spotless as were the showers which were HOT...plenty of sinks to go round and a great dishwashing area..local information is everywhere around the site..we hired a bike for our eldest son which came with a helmet and lock for ̴�21.00 for the week..he rode round the site for hours..!!! There is a regular bus service directly outside the camp which runs to the base of the mountains and to Aviemore..All in all a stunning site and one we will return too..if you're in the area give it a's lovely..!!! xxx

A Young family with 2 children review of Glenmore
As a young family we love this site! We've visted twice in the last two years in our tent. There are two downsides to this site. The first is that there is not a room to go to when it's raining - we had a lot of rain during our last stay and it would be nice to have a games room or some sort of room so we could have gotten out of the tent. The second downside is that the playground is not actually on the site, it's in forest beside the site and a public carpark. A little playpark on the site would be great. No complaints about the staff, they are lovely, helpful and very friendly! The rule of no noise after 10pm is strictly adhered to, some people were asked to leave beacuse of the noise they were making at 1am while we were there. The site is ideal for children to play and cycle on their bike or scooter. It is in a great location and Loch Morlich is amazing with the added bonus of a little cafe on the man made beach for a hot chocolate or two! We're planning to return again in 2013 in our caravan.

Wendy review of Glenmore
Very Friendly and Helpful Welcome by all staff here. arriving in our Campervan Myself and Hubby, We were offered either an open field pitch or a hard standing Pitch under the trees by the lochside. We chose the lochside pitch as we wanted to be as close to the forest as possible. The Pitch was more than enough space for our campervan and Awning with plenty of room to move around both. there were trees in between all pitches and we felt as though we had our own little spot in the woods. We could see the loch through the trees in front of us and there were Birds aplenty to see A robin even joined us for breakfast in our Awning one morning. Lots of walks available to keep us out and about and busy. The Range wardens at he visitors centre just opposite the campsite were very helpful and directed us to some \"mustn;t Miss view points \" Which were indeed well worth the extra few footsteps. Facilities at Camp were Clean and well maintained. We will definitely visit again with camp discount as well as a midweek discount We cant really complain about the price for the wonderful calm, peace and quiet we experienced over the three days was well worth the tariff. only wish we had stayed longer..

Return visit review of Glenmore
This was our 3rd visit and will certainly go back..Perfect situation for exploring Cairngorms & surrounding areas. Contrary to previous comments, toilet facilities impeccable, although only 1 block open at this time of year. Site managers very efficient and we were pleased to see that they enforced the dogs on lead rule,{ there is nothing worse than a dog mess outside your unit, [which has happened on a camping club site in the past}

The Spence Family review of Glenmore
We were really looking forward to spending our first 3 nights of camping as a family at this site. The facilities are fantastic with great toilet and shower facilities although my husband said that there was no hot water in the showers on the first morning. Unfortunately our stay was ruined by a couple having a domestic between midnight and 0300 hours. Not to mention having to listen to some extremely loud snoring from several other tents. As the site was full, I felt that the tents were all very close together (min 6 m apart for fire reasons). I wouldn't recommend this site to anyone looking for a peaceful break. Watch out for the midges too.

The big mama review of Glenmore
We have visited glenmore on a number of occasions and thoroughly enjoyed our time spent there. We had not booked for our stay this Easter weekend and were surprised to find that they did have vacancies. however when the receptionist asked us if we wanted to pay the ̴�33.00 per night before she booked us in, we understood why there was vacancies. Rothiemurchas along the road was ̴�10.00 per night cheaper. We stayed at High Ridge in Aviemore itself for ̴�24.00 per night. I think that glenmore or forest holidays need to look again at their 2013 prices and fall into line with charges at the other campsites in Aviemore!! Unfortunately we won't be back at those prices.

Border Reiver review of Glenmore
We have been regular visitors to this site during the past 25 years and during that time we have witnessed many changes to this site. On this occasion we didn't stay simply due to exorbitant price. We had been touring the highlands and decided to spend a couple of days in Glenmore to enjoy the scenery and do some trekking/walking on the off chance we could get in. Suffice to saywe decided not to stay simply because of the nighly charge. I have always liked and enjoyed staying on this site because of its location and the activities it offers but I draw the line at being taken for a ride. This site's facilities do not warrant such high tariffs. What concerns me is that the Camping and Caravan Club by association could attract adverse comments simply because of a greed ridden ethos of the Forestry Commission. Unless the tariff structure changes we will not be going back anytime soon. Without doubt the location is nice but when I compare this site to what is on offer at the Keswick site we will chose the latter option every time simply because Keswick is a club site. Some how the Forestry Commission needs to be told their tariff structure is all wrong. If it is not changed they are going to suffer immeasurable consequences. A very disappointed customer.

chris blott review of Glenmore
This is a great site in a perfect location. There are great toilet and shower blocks and the showers are perfect if you like showering in cold water. When confronted with this information the staff claimed that it was because the site was busy. So they have built nice new shower block which only work properly when the site is quiet. We are going back this year and will again complain if the showers are cold. If enough people do this it might eventually change.

LINDA REED review of Glenmore
During my 5 day stay we had 4 days of snow so keeping the site open was a challenge for the site managers. During the winter there is usually no water other than at the one toilet block open at the bottom of the camp. Whilst there water was out for a day and so only the toilets could be used. Also the chemical outlet point became full and so campers had to trek to the other toilet block near the entrance. Using this site you have to be aware that it is in the wilds of the Cairngorms and therefore in the winter you cannot expect comfort and facilities to be working all the time. Having said that this was the best time that I have stayed on this site. I was snug and warm with a hook-up in my motorhome. It was peaceful with only a few other vans, mostly seasonal residents. It can get very busy in the summer both with people and with midgies!! Can't wait for next Feb / March to stay here again!

Jim review of Glenmore
An excellent location beside Loch Morlich which has its own sandy beach. Some great walks and unbelievable scenery. Local shop just by the site with a nice little cafe, and just 15 minutes walk away a really good bar with awesome views of the Cairngorms.

happy-camper review of Glenmore
This will be our third year coming to Glenmore. The scenery and location are fabulous and plenty to do in and around Aviemore. The facilities are very good, although the shower block nearest the camping site can get muddy in wet weather (which we had a lot of last year!). Not keen on the water points as it is very difficult to lift a full waste water barrel into the drain to empty - perhaps a ramp instead? The wardens run a tight ship and do not allow speeding cars, noisy campers, dogs running around, etc. With a beach on your doorstep, a shop close by and a lovely tea room with seating to watch the red squirrels - just perfect!

Mrs. Dalrymple review of Glenmore
Site not particularly upgraded since Forestry Commission franchised out to Camping Club. Perfect location could be a top class site. Water points never been updated in the last 30 years-awkward to use and muddy underfoot. Can't be very hygienic. Hardstandings good but very untidy surroundings.

HighlandMike review of Glenmore
A really great location which we have visited many times. I am adding a review after our latest stay to add to other reviews about the facilities on this site. Bearing in mind that this is a busy site, you would expect the facilities to be well maintained, but I am afraid this is not the case. On our stay before the end of September, one of the was blocks was already closed for winter, one of the chemical waste points was out of action and the drain was blocked at one of the waste water points. If you can put up with these deficiencies, you will have a fantastic stay at one of the most picturesque sites in the country.

Harrison Family review of Glenmore
We have here on 3 previous occasions, once in a caravan and twice in a tent. We have always thoroughly enjoyed our breaks here as the scenery, loch and forest trails are fantastic. On reflection these plus points have probably clouded our judgement of the site. On arrival at the site, we were greeted by a very gruff unhelpful lady who shouted abuse down the walkie talkie to the site attendant. We arrived at around 2pm having booked well in advance and were offered one hardstanding (although half of it was grass!!!) which was next to a path leading to the toilet block and on the main road through the site. We had to keep the awning curtains closed at all times as everyone looked in on us whilst going to the toilet block and even cut through our pitch which wasn't even big enough to accommodate our car. The toilet block was clean although the showers were covered in mildew spots. I took my two small children into the larger disabled cubicle to shower them and the seat wouldn't stay up which made it very difficult to shower and was covered in mildew so they couldn't even sit on it. The chemical disposal point nearest to us was closed for 3 days because it was full, it was still closed when we left!! There were weeds growing around the toilet block and just a general feeling of no pride was being taken of the site. The water point nearest to us didn't have a good enough drain for wastewater and the water point in the woods took forever to fill up as the pressure was so poor. There should be a drying room for walkers to dry their clothes, as this was a big problem when we were in a tent. It's a fantastic setting, but for the price you would be expecting 5 star facilities, which it clearly is not. We will be looking elsewhere in October.
