A large and busy site.

This review is for Glenmore - Cairngorms

A large and busy site. Pitches in the woods near the loch beach are a little more secluded and the beach itself is stunning. Site shop was non existent, facilities barely acceptable. Quite a noisy site at times.

Very good location. Some secluded pitches in woods close to loch beach.

This review is for Glenmore - Cairngorms

Very good location. Some secluded pitches in woods close to loch beach. Good local walks, and a good location from which to further explore the Cairngorms. Some downsides. Site shows signs of wear and tear to be expected in a large, heavily used location. Services perhaps a bit too centralised - local water-point was out of service and it was five minutes walk to next. Chemical waste disposal 'full'. Lots of signs displaying rules and regulations. Rubbish disposal instructions somewhat confusing. Positive overall.

We only stayed 1 night but wish we could have stayed longer.

This review is for Glenmore - Cairngorms

We only stayed 1 night but wish we could have stayed longer. Used a hardstanding site for our motorhome which was a short distance away from one of the large amenity blocks. Great hot showers plenty room for getting changed in the cubicle. Dishwashing area clean and indoors. Easy to use waste water dumping area. Friendly little pub next door which is dog friendly. Sands on the loch shores absolutely beautiful. Would go back and would definitely recommend this site.
