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.

Perfect location
...great staff. Will hope to be back.

Great site
I had spent two nights backpacking and camping wild in the Cairngorms, mostly in the pouring rain, and the lure of a hot showers and clean toilets finally proved too much. I turned up at the site and enquired as to whether there were any pitches. The staff were friendly and helpful and soon had me sorted out with a pitch. I was able to choose where I pitched and found a nice spot near the trees with views of the mountains. The showers and toilets were spotless and I had a nice stay for a night. Recommended.

Great campsite!!
Just back from a long weekend at glen more. Was a bit apprehensive cos of some negative reviews. No idea why you would mark this site down as it was superb place to stay. Hard to fault as a location. Staff were great very friendly so ignore other negative comments and visit and enjoy the peace and quiet. Can get busy at weekends as you would expect. Definitely come back.

Beautiful site love it
Beautiful site have been coming to this camp site on and off for the last 40 years and I still love it The views walks and loch morlich never fail to brighten up my day Beautiful site spoilt by checking in and very abrupt and rude staff especially one lady didn't get her name Such a shame as I have always made such wonderful memories from this place Not sure if I would go back ☹️ Unless staff change
Unit Type: Tent

Absolutely brilliant
Best holiday in a long time, so much to do yet so relaxing. Walking, cycling, fishing, swimming in the loch, sunbathing on the beach, enjoying magnificent views- but the highlight of it all: feeding the reindeer. The whole family thoroughly enjoyed this time. Campsite clean and staff so helpful and friendly. Have been before and will come back again and again!!!

Lovely location
We were a bit worried when we first arrived as pitches were not allocated on booking. We were given a choice of a couple but neither were big enough for a caravan and awning. We found one under the trees which was nice. There was plenty of lovely walks and being on the Loch was fab. The site facilities were clean, bins could of done with being emptied the staff were very friendly. We would visit again

Good Site, Great location but expensive
This is a good site and the shower blocks are a good standard. The tent field is nice although can be very difficult to work out where to pitch due to the 6m separation rule. Slightly unclear rules on this as the signs imply edge of tent to edge of tent but the staff state edge of guy ropes. The upside of this is that you will not be camping on top of each other. Good table and benches around the site and if you are lucky like we were you can camp right next to one. The staff are generally a very nice and pleasant group of people but one or two on reception had a tendency to come across as a bit grumpy. I got the impression they were already on the defensive about the 6m rule. I had no problem with it as they were clear at check in and also other reviews/website make this clear. I did have to move my tent after initial pitching but the staff were helpful with this. The Loch is amazing and the trails around it are great for bikes and kids. Overall I think that the site is extremely expensive for tents - 3 nights for me and my 6 year old daughter cost more than £80 and that does not include electric. There is a limited adventure playground at the site. Would be good for the website to state this as it would have helped me make the decision in the first place. Overall a great experience although expensive for what you get.
Unit Type: Tent
An excellent site for all, couples, families, Trekkers. Helped by good weather I think brought out the best of the site. Toilet blocks modern, very clean and inspected regularly throughout the day. The only bit letting them down was not finishing the decor around new toilet paper holders, looked shabby. The cute bridges over the streams were loved by the children and ducks. The grounds were starting to look tired, grass areas bare and gravel needing topping up. Flowers around would work wonders. The hard standings were excellent for placing pegs. The staff were cheerful, helpful and very efficient. I would go back again and certainly recommend to others
