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 enjoyable
/
A lovely site with lovely staff. The laundry facilities were excellent and a little cheaper than most. Usual push button showers and facilities. Good walks nearby and I did stay for the dogsledding- unfortunately the real snow was a day late. Dogs off leads though - what a difficult thing to control .....

Great place... been coming to Glenmore for many years... never disapointed.

Excellent site
/
We have stayed here before in 2018 and decided to stay overnight on route home from Skye. The welcome from the warden was really warm and she was very helpful. The pitches are very good and the site is immaculate particularly the toilets and showers, we couldn’t fault it. So much so we stayed on another 2 nights, and will definitely go back.
Unit Type: Camper Van
Always love it!

We've stayed at Glenmore a few times now and it really is a favourite of ours. Perfect for us and the pooch. It was particularly lovely on this visit as it was a clear night and looking up through the forest canopy to see the abundance of stars was amazing!

our annual winter break

A good peaceful, clean well kept site. Ideal for those that like the outdoors, have dogs, don't mind the cold & for lots of various forest walks.
Unit Type: Caravan
Excellent site in perfect location.
/
We stayed for 2 nights at New Year, and found the site to be one of the best we've visited. The pitches are generous, with a view of the Cairngorm Mountains behind. The sandy beach on the shore of Loch Morlich , and the Caledonian pine forest, are just a short stroll away - as is the path around the loch which is a lovely 2 hour walk. The amenities blocks are new and tastefully designed, and the facilities are first rate. It's the ideal base for skiing/mountain climbing, or a more relaxing holiday with numerous forest walks available nearby.

Excellent Christmas and New Year
/
We stayed at Glenmore campsite for the full festive season. It was the best camping Christmas and New Year we have had. Having visited the campsite on numerous occasions we knew what to expect. For us the close proximity to Loch Morlich and the Cairngorms makes it a place to unwind and recharge the batteries. There are so many walks in the area and the scenery is outstanding. The facilities on the site are good with 2 excellent shower blocks that were heated throughout our stay- underfloor heating as well as blown heating. We were never cold even when the temperature outside dropped to -5°. There are a variety of different pitches from grass to hard standing and some pitches in the woods, plus electric pitches. The wardens try their best to accommodate everyone, although the rules of booking a pitch and changing your booking are a little crazy with a fee for changing your pitch or arrival dates etc. There is a small shop with cafe and bar right next to the site which is very convenient. Aviemore is about 4 miles away with a variety of shops, restaurants and bars. We have recommended this site to many of our friends- make sure you book early as they were very busy over the festive period. Looking forward to returning later this year.

Couldn’t have asked for a better start to the new year
/
The Glenmore campsite is a treasure of a place. We camped in the forest which was magical and felt like we were wild camping but with the luxury of the toilet/shower block on the main site. The walks were brilliant for our dogs with the lock a second away from where we camped. Staff on site were so helpful and very friendly. Pine martin pub was brilliant we live bands playing each night. Really couldn’t have asked for a better start to the new year, will certainly be visiting again soon 😊

Outstanding Location Site showing signs of wear and tear.
/
We arrived here for 5 nights over the New year. The reception was very friendly and welcoming and we were shown to the available pitches by one of the wardens. The site itself in in my opinion one of the best locations in the UK, surrounded by stunning mountain scenery and Loch Morlich with its perfect beach, right on your doorstep. The facilities are however in need of upgrade. In the large area where we were pitched there seemed to be only 1 tap for a large number of pitches. The roads in the site are in fairly poor condition. The toilet blocks were showing age with doors that can't lock in toilets and showers, missing hooks but otherwise worked well enough. The dish wash room and Laundry were in good condition. There was a shop come cafe come pub adjacent to the site. We walked into Aviemore (6 miles each way) but there was a good bus service outside the site. Would I return to this site ?, you bet I would and can,t wait, but C.I.T.F. would do well to spend some of the pitch fees on a bit of upgrading.

Superb site booked my next visit while there :)
/
This is an excellent site, staff are very friendly and accommodating, lovely big clean shower blocks. The site is great or outdoors people loads of beautiful walks through the forecast and you are a 5 min walk down to the beautiful beach, our dog and little girl loved it. Not sure if actually part of the site however there is a decent enough playpark for kids, not great as just a spider swing and little obstacle course so didn’t amuse our little girl for long however better than nothing. You are about 20 min drive to aviemore which has loads of amenities should you run out of anything. Pitches are good, only get a phone and tv reception if you are at the top of the site though. there is a great little pub at the top of the hill which we found ideal for a little winter warmer after a nice walk. All in all a great site, i’ve Already booked to go back in April and look forward to spending time there when the weather is not so cold.
