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.

Lovely campsite
This was our first trip in our campervan and the weekend we choose was fully booked. I think we actually got the last plot. We chose the campsite as we knew the area but normally visit in the winter months when the area is quiet. We had lots of reservations about going to a very busy campsite, however when we arrived we were greeted by very friendly, helpful staff and very efficiently shown to available plots and found one in the forest that was quiet and suited us perfectly. Our visit was exactly what we hoped for, toilets clean and facilities well maintained. Staff at all times really friendly and welcoming. We will definitely visit again.

Lovely wooded site on banks of loch
Reasonably priced. Very nice site with option of placement in woodland or out in open field. Shop and bar on site . Site is quite large but so well spaced, plenty of privacy. Really enjoyed our stay
Unit Type: Camper Van
Not what was expected
Very busy campsite, not peaceful. Pre booked 8 weeks prior to visit, but we were pretty much just pointed to the last available hard standing pitch which was outside toilet block. We are a family with 2 small children and were were woken up around midnight with people swearing outside. Would not recommend this site to young families looking for a peaceful adventure. We tried cancelling our 2nd night stay in the last leg of our trip but were told we weren’t entitled to get a refund due to 2 night minimum stay peak season. Even though we had booked in for one night 4 days before

Fantastic Staff and Site
great site and staff were amazing. Couple of bad points - the amount of people walking their dogs of the leads that had little control of their animals and people camping on the beach, The beach campers were walking through close to our pitch late at night and breaking trees to get fire wood. I witnessed the staff a few times letting people know to put dogs on leads but once gone they just took them off again. We had quite a few dogs run onto our pitch to steal food etc. the staff @ this site are so helpful, i forgot a mallet but one was lent to me and advice given on pegs etc. I just love this site soo much

Worst Camping Holiday Ever!
Camping in the forest has completely sucked the soul from the heart of the Cairngorms. You would think a large company would try to improve a tired camp site just a little bit no they must be spending all their profits down south, thanks for destroying my childhood. I won’t be back.

Tired run down site with nasty staff.
Ive visited Glenmore for thirty years now and the past few years Ive noticed a huge decline in the site tidyness and the arrogant manner in which some of the staff talk to you. It really lacks investment and considering how busy it is Iam shocked at how poor the roads and pitches have become. This site must take in a lot of money so why oh why is it not being reinvested in the infrastructure of the site. In this day and age most sites try to offer some kind of solution for wifi but not in this case, ie, we want your money but your getting little in return. The biggest problem for me and many many others I have spoken to is the problem of poor staff, staff who are rude and arrogant and unhelpful and make some visitors feel really unwanted as though you are getting in their way and you have no right to be there, its shocking and getting worse. As for the cost, its expensive but the most annoying thing is the cost changes every day and there is no rhyme or reason for this, some days I go its £24 and other days within the same month it is £34, same van and same number of people. Like a lot of people who have used this site for many years, its a good location but it really needs managed and sadly it is not being so. To be clear there are a couple of really nice staff who try but others are downright terrible and are chasing campers away at an alarming rate.

Good site. Poor customer service. I’ll struggle to go back.
There’s no doubting this is a beautiful camp site with excellent facilities which is a key reason we made the booking. Unfortunately our family tent had not made it through the winter, so we opted to bring 3 much smaller tents instead, which we measured would fit in the same footprint as the big one. However on arrival, this was not to be and I was dealt with ruthless efficiency when being told my one night stay for the family would now be over £60 (family of 5). I don’t mind all the safety rules & regulations but the manner I was dealt with was that of a ruthless public authority like I was claiming the wrong housing benefit. Of course we paid up and enjoyed our stay but a bit of humanity in applying customer service left me feeling done and inclined to give Glenmore a miss next time.

Excellent campsite!
Stayed at Glenmore campsite by myself for four nights. On arrival I received a warm welcome and was given information about the campsite facilities and information about the surrounding area. The toilet and shower building was very clean - they close each block for two hours daily to clean them. Throughout the day the site wardens do checks on the toilets to ensure they are tidy and never out of toilet paper. There is a bar and cafe on the campsite as well. Only downsides are the camp shop is very disappointing - previously it used to be great. They have majorly downsized it. Had to keep travelling in to Aviemore for food supplies. Also, I was charged for two people per night even though I was staying on my own, think this needs to be addressed to encourage solo travellers. However, I would definitely recommend this campsite to anyone and will be back again.

Great site, great location, great facilities
A great site, within easy access to Aviemore and the Cairngorns. A fantastic loch to enjoy, Sandy beaches, water sports and bril sunset. Excellent facilities which were cleaned daily. Would definately recommend. Oh and you must visit the Pine Marten bar, they do breakfast, lunch and dinner all set in a chalet full of character.
