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 breath-taking 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.

This campsite is 300 metres above sea level, making it a popular destination for skiing in the winter months. Visitors should be prepared for cold conditions and be aware that part of the campsite closes during winter so availability may be more limited.

Great campsite,clean and tidy all round,will be back!

A Five Star Camp Site
/
We recently stayed at Glenmore Camp Site and couldn't have chosen a more perfect place to stay for our 5 day break in Aviemore. We were welcomed by very friendly staff and the most breathtaking views of the Cairngorm Mountain range. The grounds were perfectly manicured and the shower/toilet block was immaculate. The campsite was fully booked for the duration of our stay and the staff ensured a smooth transition between leavers and newcomers. We reside just over an hour away from the campsite so we will certainly be going back again and would highly recommend Glenmore Camp Site to anybody who is considering visiting the Aviemore area.

Perfect location, fantastic facilities
/
We camped for 4 nights in the Pinewoods section and being 2 minutes from the beach at Loch Morlich, it was idyllic! 10 minutes drive to Aviemore and a host of facilities in a 10 mile radius for all ages and abilities! The staff were friendly and helpful and only one tiny fault was the lack of security at night. The site shuts down at 10am and it should quieten down but there was still loud partying going on at 3am on the Saturday night and nothing seemed to be done about it. If you were to fix this with some intermittent patrols, we'd never holiday anywhere else!
Unit Type: Trailer Tent
Very busy
/
We arrived early Friday afternoon we were shown to our pitch and I queried if it was appropriate for a tent but was told to pick any in the area. So we set up our 8man tent and then went out exploring all afternoon. At 5pm I received a voicemail asking to phone the campsite so in a panic I tried calling but no reply. We ant straight back to the site reception to be told we were pitched in the wrong place and that we had to move! But because it wasn't our fault we were in the wrong place that the workers from the site would do it! We just felt awful then the manager who had shown us to the original pitch said we could stay in 1st ouch as we would only be there 2 nights. All that panic for nothing. Over the whole weekend we were frozen and uncomfortable due to the very hard ground. And the pitched gradually filled with water. Bit of a disaster. The only saving grace for us was we were hardly at the tent spending all day at landmark forest adventure park on the Saturday. Very expensive 2 nights.

great campsite
/
Love this camp site as a child and now able to enjoy it with my own children now. There is plenty to do from walks in the forest,canoes/kayaks on the loch,or just chill by your tent. Great camp site with great shower/wash areas Only thing I would say is to plan breakfast the day before if you are an early riser as the shop on site does not open till 9am Great holiday had 👍

Nice Site Overall Expensive and Boggy
/
We've stayed here most summers for about 8 years with 2 kids. It is in a lovely location and is well maintained. Often it can be fully booked if the weather is good. This year for tge first time ever we had to camp in the bog at the bottom of the hill. This site has much more capacity as it fills like an empty car park with too much empty space the gaps filling. Why not mark out pitches like on the continent? Thehigh price seems to deter the heavy drinkers who plague other sites including aberfoyle. The site is lovely and very child friendly. This years the midgies were in top form.

Excellent Site
/
Great stay with our family. Really good facilities however noise was an issue. Certain campers held a complete disregard for others and continued to make excessive noise well past 2300 hours. Really poor, not sure what can be done but perhaps some site checks after lights out would be of benefit. Slightly spoiled what was a lovely break.

Had a great stay at the Glenmore site.Site facilities were spot on. My son had a great adventure. The scenery was absolutely stunning. The weather so so but mostly good. The loch is breathtaking. Very friendly and helpful staff and locals too. A pity our stay was only for 2 nights. WILL BE BACK.
