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 kayakingon Loch Morlich and, of course, many mountains provide a challenge.

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.

Just dreadful
On arrival was barked at by military style woman and told to park and report to reception. Two women there, one of whom was loud, nasal southern English, giving instructions to a fellow guest so loudly I couldn't hear the one dealing with me. ?15 to pitch one tent and this with a single person discount. Pitch was OK but there were some very swampy looking ones. Military policewoman gaurding the gate did a wee patrol early evening to make sure no one was misbehaving. Went for shower and it was freezing cold so gave up and decided to wait until morning. Next morning showers were still cold. Disgraceful facilities for the price they charge. The last time I was here the wifie on reception said I'd be better wild camping on the beach for free and just using the facilities. She was right! Nice location and it was very quiet at night.

Rude staff
Horrible rude staff , I'm a female in my 50 s and I was towing my caravan on my own with a child when I arrived on the site I was shown to my pitch and I asked the gentleman to help me park my caravan he was rude vulgar and abusive , he was swearing under his breath about stupid woman who didn't know what they were doing , I had some minor damage to my jockey wheel and I asked in reception for help and was given a phone number for an engineer in Glashow 2 hours away , the staff refused to help , but a very nice gentleman in the next caravan came to my help and fixed it in 5 mins flat , yesterday I arrived at the site was told it was full and I should go elsewhere and a member of staff tried to charge me ?3 for entering campsite with out a booking , I will never return to this site awful awful staff

July 2014 visit
Scenery is spectacular and campsite is well situated for all amenities. Campsite is very large and has very few electric tent pitches. We were shown to our electric pitch by staff who were slightly gruff and more interested in "processing us". The electric pitch was on rounded stones which was not what we expected. We were told they were going to add sand next year to make it a little more bearable. I saw many campers cooking directly onto the grass and saw wood being burnt. It seemed that the attendants only policed areas close to the hut. The staff could certainly be more friendly and the toilet and shower blocks did look tired they were clean however mildew and drainage in the showers could be addressed. The campsite was quiet after 10 which was good. We came back one time without out a blue sticker on our car and were welcomed at the gate while the most gruffest of greetings - no "hi hello can I help you" just a " do you have a ticket" There was never a " hi hello" from the staff which could easily make the campsite more friendly. We have camped many times at other campsites including Aberfoyle and this site could learn a lesson or two in customer friendliness.

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.

Over zealous Camp Warden spoils Holiday
Glenmore is a great facility, large and spacious with good facilities, but... Staff attitude makes all the difference to your enjoyment of a Holiday and we certainly were not impressed. We would agree with other recent posts that perhaps a customer care course might be a good investment. As you arrive harassed staff act like angry traffic wardens terrified that someone who isn't a resident might stray onto the site, instead of greeting you with a welcoming smile, they interrogate you to ensure you have a reservation before you dared bring a vehicle onto their site. We were made to pitch our tent on a pebble stone area and park on the grass beside it, as pitching on the grass would make the grass go yellow!!, whilst a walk round the site later revealed that every other tent was pitched on grass. Mhmm. We all appreciate that rules are set so that ALL campers can enjoy their stay, but beware when rules take over to the point of being petty, it is after all a Holiday facility, staff here have adopted a condescending school teacher approach which is uncalled for, and leaves you kinda irritated. Our group were 3 couples, 40 years old plus enjoying a child free break, we took part in activities that weekend at Rothiemurchas, quad biking and tree zone, both sets of staff at these facilities are to be highly commended for their customer care which went above and beyond, perhaps Camping in the Forest should send their staff along for some lessons. Finally, we have stayed at the same group's campsite, Cobleland in the Trossachs this time last year and found the staff there very welcoming, helpful and interested in making sure we had a great stay
