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 sandy 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.
