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.

Very good
/
It would be better if the shower areas were a bit hotter, difficult as they are part of the toilet area.
Unit Type: Tent
Campsite with great facilities
/
It's a long time since we last stayed at this campsite but it still ticks all the boxes as meeting all our needs. Plenty space, great washing facilities and safe for kids. If the weather had been better we would have made more use of the paths straight down to the loch - maybe next time.
Unit Type: Tent
Great Site
/
Stayed here for 3 nights. Great site in a fantastic location. Toilet block was immaculate at all times. Wardens couldn't​ have been more friendly and helpful. We will definitely return !
Unit Type: Motorhome
Wonderful site with Beautiful Location
/
Took our very first caravan on our very first caravan holiday so slightly nervous about how things would go. Staff could not have been more helpful, with Steve escorting us to our pitch and waiting with us while we started to get things sorted. Location really beautiful being within site of Loch Morlich from the windows of our caravan. Dog walk right on doorstep around the Loch with the bonus of nearly every walker keeping their dogs on a lead or calling them back if they saw us approaching with our three dogs, which was important to us as one of our German Shepherds is a rescue dog and rather nervous of other dogs. Facilities very handy for all pitches, clean and tidy with the showers nice and hot. The Visitor Centre across the road also offers 10% off all food and drink if you mention you are camping on the site. Loads to do very close the the campsite so we will certainly be going back.
Unit Type: Caravan
We shall be back.

We have caravaned here since 1971. The trees have grown quite a bit in that time and improved the ambiance. The toilets have also improved over the years and now are excellent. Some years ago we were disappointed to lose our old forestry `Commission Wardens. The "new" team seemed much more officious and we transferred to Rothiemurchas for several visits. This time the staff were all very helpful and welcoming. We have no complaints whatever. The detailed weather reports and other info was appreciated too. We love the area and do not look for luxury, so can easily grade this site as 5 star for us.
Unit Type: Caravan
excellent customer service. very helpful and friendly staff, beautiful location, 10 out of 10.

on arrival reception staff were so helpful and friendly in finding us a caravan pitch in a nice quiet location as this was the first stay in the caravan for our six month old puppy. beautiful location and very well run campsite. we will be back again soon.

Lovely campsite, friendly staff, really clean facilities only thing that could have made it better is if the loo's near tent area had been open.

Camping behind the back of the bins
/
Despite there being lots of empty pitches I was directed in person to the one set behind the back of the toilets with excellent views of the chemical waste disposal shed, across from the service yard and next to the fenced septic tank area! Nevertheless the position of the campsite by the lake is beautiful, the toilets/showers are excellently designed, clean and warm and the staff are friendly. I give the campsite 5 stars but the pitch I was given 0.5.

Great Location but facilities not great
/
This campsite is in a great location which you ultimately pay for as the prices aren't the cheapest. After paying £130 for 3 nights at the discounted member rates it is very disappointing to discover only 1 toilet block open for a fully booked site at Easter and out of the 7 gents showers in the block, 4 are out of order leaving 3 for the whole site. Given the lack of facilities over the weekend I was then somewhat surprised to be reprimanded for asking for a late departure after 10am and not having my ticket with me when I asked. Not all wardens were this grumpy though. Overall a very expensive campsite where the facilities didn't live up to expectations.
Unit Type: Caravan
A really good site.

Just returned from Glenmore site. I will just list the pros and cons that applied to us. 2 adults and 2 kids, ages 9&3. PROs Beautiful location with OUTSTANDING views of mountains. 2 mins walk from lovely beach at Loch Morlich. Lots to do nearby, and Aviemore only 10 mins by car. Staff very nice and friendly. Play area for kids. Red squirrels. Large, spacious, attractive site. Good showers, nice n hot! CONs Only a slight inconvenience, the waste water and chemical disposal could be closer together.
