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.

Ok

Great toilet block. Site was boggy poor drainage and lack of lighting on roads and walkways.
Unit Type: Caravan
Awesome as always !
/
Had a fab 2 weeks at Glenmore as always. The Autumn colours and scenery were spectacular. Always loads to do (Fishing, Cycling, Mountain climbing, Kayaking). Dave and Lorraine and the others were great and helpful as always. Let us move pitch when the awning got blown off allowed us a late check-out on the Sunday for a little extra cost. Everyone is always friendly up here, good atmosphere on the campsite. Highly recommended.
Unit Type: Caravan
Great

Lovely campsite. Staff very friendly and helpful. Good access to mountain and watersports.
Unit Type: Caravan
Waterlogged site with inadequate facilities for the number of holidaymakers.
/
Gorgeous location means that this is always a popular site. We stayed there during the Scottish school mid-team break, so was very busy with caravans and motorhomes. ( tent spaces only available most nights) Despite the site being very busy, there was only one toilet block open, resulting in lengthy queues for showers etc. in the mornings. The site was very wet with a lot of marshy ground and standing water, in pitches and on the roadways, with puddles across the full width of the roads. Improvements have been made over the years, with an increasing number of hard-standing pitches, but the basic problem of site drainage has never been tackled successfully. 5 star location, let down by sub-standard infrastructure.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Great site but a bit wet.
/
Appreciate that there had been, and was, heavy rain during our 5 night stay but something really needs to be done about the drainage and the associated "cultivation" created by vehicles to the pitches.
Unit Type: Caravan
Fantastic site
/
We have visited this site a few times now as it has everything we are looking for. Our child and 3 dogs always come home tired and happy as the walks/cycle paths surrounding the caravan are brilliant. Will be back again soon.

Lovely Campsight

Was greeted warmly at reception and promptly shown to my pitch. Sight is set in an outstanding area, there is a near by loch and play park for kids, many mountain bike trails. I'll certainly be going again
Unit Type: Tent
NOT a family campsite. Absolutely awful.
/
Soulless campsite with overcrowded waterlogged pitches. We were there the same time as multiple male only groups due to a biker event in the town. The campsite saw fit not to put on any security or staff presence and there was shouting and swearing from drunken groups until well after 2am. Facilities are basic and dirty. Was actually physically burned under a scolding shower. 1 washing machine for the whole site. Very expensive compared to other sites and the worst site we've ever stayed at. Left after 1 night.
Unit Type: Tent
Rude and aggressive staff member spoiled my first day
/
Incredibly disappointed upon arrival. The lady at the reception was rude, condescending and unnecessarily aggressive. Our arrival was delayed due to a car accident, we decided that it wasn't going to ruin our holiday and decided to still go to the site. I tried to call several times but the reception phone wasn't answered. This was at 7pm the night before we were due to arrive when the reception should still have been manned. When I tried to explain this to the receptionist she was disgustingly rude saying that "you need to try and communicate, yeah?!" She didn't care and to be honest it seemed like she wanted to pick a fight. The whole encounter caused me a lot of anxiety which ruined my day. I think the lady at reception is the manager, I have read several reviews also complaining about her. Someone senior at camping in the forest needs to contact her and explain that her attitude is driving away business, as is evident in other reviews, not just mine, please refer to tripadvisor. I have told everyone I know about how awful my arrival was and will recommend people to stay at Rothiemurchus Campsite instead. This campsite is over priced, over regulated and a shadow of what I remember from my childhood.
