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 breathtaking 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.

Best Campsite I've Stayed At
The campsite exceeded all my expectations. We had a large area to pitch our tent that was at a good distance away from other tents and campervans. The campsite is beautiful and we had the most gorgeous weather. You can access a beach at the campsite that has a cafe and wifi, and they had canoes and boats to rent. There are plenty of walks around the campsite, and the reindeer centre is across the road. At night, I enjoyed walking to the local pub (that you can walk to through the campsite) for some drinks and to listen to the live music. They also had a shop next door and a cafe. I would definitely stay here again, the staff were really friendly and the toilet and shower facilities were extremely clean.
Unit Type: Tent
Fabulous campsite.
We have visited here several times over the years. We have found everyone to be really friendly and helpful. The site is in a fabulous location, with many beautiful walks to be enjoyed. The facilities are spotlessly clean, showers nice and warm. Thoroughly recommend this site. Only negative is that we have to come home.
Unit Type: Motorhome
Great stay.
Great site, though maybe a bit expensive. Toilets and showers excellent. Warm and clean. Children's play area in woods, just off the hard stand area. Short walk through woods to beach. Road on campsite salted early on morning of snow. Beautiful day for the Aviemore Husky rally. Well worth a visit to site and rally.
Unit Type: Motorhome
Well equipped stunning site
Absolutely loved this site. We are new caravanners and the facilities at this site were brilliant . Shower/toilets were immaculate . The Location couldn't be better with Loch Morlich on your doorstep . We will definitely return to this site very soon .
Unit Type: Caravan
Stunning location
Stayed at Glenmore for five nights in January. This was our first visit to Glenmore although we know the area very well. We were given a warm welcome from the wardens and allowed to chose our own pitch. Site was quiet because of the time of year and lack of snow for skiers. Only one of the toilet blocks open in the winter season but it's more than sufficient and immaculately clean. Good showers at a good temprature. Excellent area for walking with direct access to the circular loch morlich walk only a few yards away makes it great for dog owners. Pinemarten bar shop and cafe is at the park entrance and has all the basic supplies. Overall the site is brilliant and we enjoyed it so much we're heading back in a couple of weeks. We'll also be looking to get a winter seasonal pitch next season. What more can you say!

My Review of Glenmore
Just home from a three day camping holiday, campsite is big, plenty room for everyone. Campsite itself is clean, toilet block reasonably clean but showers are dated, push the button style which are ridiculous to use and also means you cant set the temperature you want. We tried to book electric hook up with our tent pitch but no hook ups available but thought there would be at least one socket available in the toilet/shower block to dry hair etc but none, not even one in the laundry which was very surprised at given the price we were charged. Our friends were there too in there caravan with electric hook up but somehow we were more expensive for a tent with no electric!!! And we had to pay extra for having an extra car, complete rip off, been to much better equipped campsites for half the price. I know it states there are midges on the site but it is horrendous some nights so beware and be prepared.
J Walsh review of Glenmore
A fantastic site great for walking or water sports on the loch. Plenty to do in the area if you want to be active or you can just relax on the beach at Loch Morlich which is right next to the site. We stayed here the first two weeks in August and had a great time, showers and toilets are well maintained and electric hook up was good, no tripping out. The only thing against this site was some of the people who used it, those who obviously thought it is below them to clean the floor of the shower after they used it, those who drove the wrong way round the one way system as it was a shorter way to the gate and those who didn't clean up after their dog. I don't know if those people were members or not, but I never once saw a member of staff stop a car driving the wrong way or speak to a person who just walked away after their dog fouled the site. I have to say I was saddened by the behaviour of quite a few of the people on site, All my family loved the area and my son spent most afternoons at the loch, either kayaking or just playing in the water and on the sand. But I didn't feel the staff enforced any rules and because of this we wont be using any camping in the forest sites again.
Ade review of Glenmore
This is the second time we have stayed at this site which although relatively secluded is excellent if you like Cycling / walking /water sports. There is a small cafe / shop just off site which sells basics and has a great little cafe section selling chips and pies etc. The location is beautifull and the only down side would be if it rained as limited in door activities in area. The only down side to the entire site that we can see is there are no individual wash basins in toilets. An excellent run site which understands that children do want to play ball games and ride there bikes.
alex review of Glenmore
Site was good size, hot water at shower block even with a good 4 inches of snow. Would be perfect if other campers respected others space around their pitch and not just let their kids run around others units while they are setting up theirs. Not the campsites fault
Glynis review of Glenmore
Paradise! We have stayed here several times over the years and the stunning views over Loch Morlich and the Cairngorm Mountains never fail to take my breath away. You can sit on the beach, take a short stroll in the forest or go for a long walk in the mountains. It is paradise for dogs as well but take a pair of tweezers as they tend to acquire ticks. The toilet blocks are kept very clean and the shower cubicles are nice and spacious.
