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.

Beautiful location
Friendly staff beautiful campsite toilets first class a pity about the weather not your fault torrential rain would definitely return.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Poor amenities
Stayed here for 1 night....never again! For such a large site there was only 1 toilet/ shower block working. Not good enough!
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Great Campsite, pity about the officious attitude of some of the staff we came across
First Glenmore is a wonderful location for a Campsite, it has facilities that are almost as good as CCC and CMC sites and the views of surrounding mountains are probably the best to be seen anywhere. We cycled every day from the campsite along trails that were well surfaced and along routes that were interesting and an absolute delight. This is the second time we have stayed at this site and our pitch was in the wooded area. It was level, secluded (perhaps a bit too secluded when we are in midge season) and very quiet. The toilet block nearest to our pitch had boiler problems for 4 of our nights. It was a little inconvenient to walk to the next block (a distance of 220m measured on my Garmin) I did register a complaint about this fact at the time to one of the staff. He deals with my complaint well and expressed regret that a boiler breakdown had resulted in no hot water in the block. I also reported our concerns that the Chemical disposal point was closed. However our contact with other members of staff was not so positive. Friends who were staying in Aviemore reported to us that staff in Reception could have been more helpful and were officious in their manner. We experienced this on our first morning, when a member of staff knocked on our Motorhome door asking where our ticket was. I had hung it on the rear view mirror inside the Motorhome and it was obscured by the windscreen blinds. When I showed this to the member of staff, I was told in no uncertain terms that the ticket had to be displayed outside the vehicle!

Wow....the location is perfect
Book in for 2 nights camping with my friend. We arrived later than expected which meant the office was closed. The guy on duty arrived within 2 minutes of us waiting at the door. Welcomed us, showed us where to go and advised us to check in first thing. We found a the perfect spot in no time at all. We soon had the tent pitched and we're on our way down to the beach with is less than 5 minutes through the woods. Absolutely beautiful views from the beach. We sat for a couple of hours with a small fire and a couple of beers and took it all in. Next day we checked in hassle free and the staff were more than accomodating. We spent our day out on loch morlich fishing from a boat we hired from the watersports cabin on beach (£40 for the day). It was a but windy out on the loch and we were struggling to row ourselves out of the shore so one of the staff member gave us a tow on a speed boat. Again staff at this place were fantastic. We didn't catch anything but still have a great day our on the water taking in the breath taking views. After our boating expedition we walked 5 minutes back up towards the park and went to the pine merten pub. This place was fantastic. Small yet very comfortable, warm and very welcoming. Staff were fantastic and the range of whisky was brilliant. All in all the entire experience was outstanding. Can't wait to go back

Beautiful site, miserable staff
This is a fabulous camp site. It’s a beautiful and well located site with gorgeous bike rides and walks, and lots of water sports available, it’s a real hit with our family and friends. However, the staff leave a lot to be desired. Absolutely no Highland welcome at all. It was all about rules and money and you were definitely made to feel that it was more like a prison camp you were paying for the privilege of, and not a welcoming a relaxing break. One of our friends was summoned back to reception on day 2 for mixing up the labels to go on their tent and car. It was clearly an accident (& I really wonder whether it mattered?) but she was made to feel like a naughty school child. So as long as you don’t make a mistake you will be fine. And I’d recommend bringing a tape measure for your 6 meter gap too as another family with small children were made to take their tent down and move it 1/2 meter over, we still believe it was already 6metres apart (& again was it really necessary to take the tent down for 30cm, especially when next to friends?) All of that said, there was one very friendly and helpful male warden on a bike who may be the difference between us returning and not.

Great views
excellent place to stay, you can do so many walks and cycling from campsite, shop and cafe/pub small but well staffed near site, boating hire canoeing and cafe overlooking Loch, showers etc and facilities clean and plenty will be back
Unit Type: Caravan
The site is amazing, staff friendly, facilities very clean. Glenmore is an outdoors paradise, from loch morlich, to forestry tracks, mountain walks and climbs, ideal for running mountain biking and water activities, the site is ideally situated for fun outside. The pine Marten bar has great entertainment, and a friendly approach to all visitors, only a 2 minute walk from the campsite.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Great Site
This is a great site just outside Aviemore. Clean and well run. Two new toilet/shower blocks, although for some reason one was closed half way though our visit. Tent (with electric) pitches were on a sandy ground with 2x ground sheets supplied. Surrounding area has lots to do including a beach, watersports, trail walks, fishing, birdwatching and cycle paths. Scenery is superb.
Unit Type: Tent
Very noisy
We booked 3 nights and although the website did say there would be some noise during our stay we couldn’t believe how noisy it was, all day. We were woken up again on our second morning at 8am by a large lorry and some diggers and that continued all day. Why would you not do this work in the winter months? We decided to leave one night early and informed reception who were sorry but no refund was offered. We feel this ruined our holiday......such a shame!
Unit Type: Tent
Climate change and recycling
Recycling difficult to find, most people throwing recyclable products in main bins, nowhere that we could find to put glass at all, with climate change need to address this urgently!! Lovely pitches in the wooded section. Shower press buttons only give about 6 seconds of water at a time, kept going hot o cold one day, luke warm to cold the next day. Too many dogs all over the site. Staff excellent. Location for loch and walking also excellent
