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 sandy 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.

 Please note: All grass with electric pitches for tents are on sand.

One of my favourite campsites and wonderful wardens
This is one of my favourite campsites which I've been visiting for the last 20 years. The location is ideal for myself and my family right on the shores of Loch Morlich for swimming and other water based activities. There are loads of paths for walking or biking right from the site. My last couple of visits - last week and the week before I've taken advantage of the recent snow at Cairngorm and managed four days skiing. The washroom facilities are always spotless and warm even when the site is covered in snow. A special mention goes to the wardens - Helen and William who are so friendly and helpful. On my last visit they both went the extra mile when my electric cable failed and then lent me another one. William broke off from what he was doing immediately to come and help and check out the electric bollard which was much appreciated at 5pm on a Friday evening.
Unit Type: Camper Van
Great as always
Had a great time as always. We were here in Jan & Feb which was also good. Didn't get any snow when we were there but did some good walks from site. Wardens very friendly. Will come again later in the year probably with the caravan so we can stay for longer.
Unit Type: Camper Van
Superb campsite in the best place
This is without doubt our favourite campsite. The location is superb - Cairngorm Mountains behind you, surrounded by fantastic pine forest and on the shores of surely the most beautiful loch in Scotland - with a beach! Just a few miles from Aviemore or Cairngorm ski area, a couple of places locally to eat or have a drink. The forest provides lots of opportunities for short or longer walks, and you are surrounded by wildlife. There are plenty of other attractions in the area, especially for those who love the outdoors. The site itself is lovely, choices of different types of (all level) pitches, including in the pine woods if you like to be a bit more away from it all. The facilities are first class, lots of toilets and showers, hot water, underfloor heating in winter and always spotlessly clean. The site is really well looked after and relaxed.

Great campsite...... but
Once again we have stayed at Glenmore, a great site in a beautiful location. Even though the site was snow covered, as always, the site was immaculate. But..... considering the time of year (winter) the fact that the power repeatedly tripped whenever any extra items were plugged in was extremely frustrating. This was the same for the three families in our group. If a site is open in winter it NEEDS to have the ability for people to plug in a basic heater and not have to switch lights off and any other items for this to be some. Staff offering to move pitches (for all three of is) is not much cop. I would suggest that additional effort should be made to endure power is up to expectations. Drainage could also be looked at as pitches flooded but thats not unusual in these weather conditions. We will still go back as both the staff and site is first class, the power issue aside, and the wee shop/bar at the edge of the site is fantastic too.

Won’t be back
Well after having our very own swimming pool in our awning and power griping constantly I will not be back We had 3 nights here and had to take our awning down for two of them because the ground flooded and this was hard standing pitches that the stones were lower than the grass We also had to constantly turn the power back on as it tripped every-time you want to run more than one thing Staff are not the best either as they treat the place like a concentration camp, only one car per van and if you want another you park in their car park at the cost of £5 per night (I’ve parked at cheaper airports) oh and the campsite was half empty. Also well I can move you pitches if the power is tripping which would have been no use as the two pitches right next to us we’re having the same issues Much better places to go where yo get treated better

Stunning Scotland
I have been visiting the site and area for over thirty years, it’s a stunning location. The staff that booked us in were friendly and couldn’t be more helpful. The site is always clean and facilities spotless. Top Marks!
Unit Type: Camper Van
Super place
Perfect place to stay. We parked up in the forest part. This protected us from Storm Dennis. Staff were helpful, toilet block warm and spotless. Woke on the Sunday to a covering of snow. The staff soon had the roads cleared. Surrounded by some beautiful walks and scenery.
