Open all year round, there can be no more enchanting place than Glenmore campsite, situated in the heart of the Cairngorms in the Scottish Highlands. A truly spectacular campsite, it has access to the exquisite beaches of Loch Morlich, and is close to an ancient Caledonian Pinewood forest, one of the last few remaining. This is a very special place that provides a truly authentic, back to nature, camping experience.

This beautiful area is rich in wildlife and you may spot one of the many native animals from the comfort of your tent including deer, otters, golden eagles and red squirrels. If you are really lucky you might even catch a glimpse of the elusive pine marten and the crested tit.

At any time of year Glenmore is the perfect setting - whether you are looking for a winter skiing holiday, or seeking to experience the peace and natural beauty of the summer by taking in the many picturesque walking and cycling trails accessible directly from the campsite. 

For more active campers, Loch Morlich offers kayak and canoe hire, as well as windsurfing. The Cairngorms National Park is a Mecca for outdoor enthusiasts with all sporting activities imaginable on offer including; skiing, fishing, sailing and windsurfing, white water rafting, river tubing, horse riding and pony trekking. The National Park offers over 280 km of footpaths that pass through moors, woodland, riverside, loch edge and beautiful farmland.

After all of that activity and exhilaration, why not visit the popular Cairngorm Reindeer Centre which is just a short walk from the main campsite entrance, home to Britain’s only herd of free roaming reindeer. And for a fine selection of pubs, restaurants, shops and a supermarket, the charming town of Aviemore is just a 15 minute drive away.

Dogs are welcome on this campsite, and there are toilets and showers available. Please note that the site postcode isn’t relevant for satnav; please follow the signs for the Cairngorm Mountains.
