Overview

You will find a real taste of the Scottish Highlands in this area of castles, distilleries and beautiful scenery.

Walks, wildlife and whisky are all in abundance in the area surrounding our beautiful Speyside Club campsite. The campsite enjoys a rural position between the fabulous Moray coast and the Cairngorms Mountain range. Set on a gentle south-facing slope and surrounded by trees, Speyside campsite will appeal to those looking for a peaceful and relaxing base for their exploration of the area.

Views extend over the surrounding countryside and trees and hedges dot the site giving some areas a more secluded feel. Facilities include a laundry, children’s play area and a dog walk.

If you enjoy a wee dram of Scotland’s famous tipple, you’re in luck. The area surrounding the campsite boasts some 50 whisky distilleries, including the world-famous Macallan Distillery. Most offer tours and there are whisky festivals in May and September.

For walkers, the 84-mile Speyside Way connects the moray coast with the Grampian mountains and passes close to the campsite.

As well as being handy for the coast of Moray Firth, Elgin, Buckie, Forres, Nairn, Fochabers and Spey bay are all within easy reach. At Spey Bay you’ll find the Scottish Dolphin Centre where you can enjoy dolphin spotting or take a walk along the mouth of the River Spey.

This review is for Speyside by Craigellachie

We have been coming to this site for many years because of the beautiful surrounding scenery, the site always adequate for our needs, facilities spotless, a supply of groceries in the small shop, and, most of the times, staff very friendly and helpful. This time, we were immediately struck by the upgrade of the site, the hard standing pitches looking so much better with their hard edges and covering of gravel.For all the bad weather, the grass was looking well maintained. The club bench looked well with the bird feeders and some of the many hanging baskets around the site placed by it. Most of all though, we must praise Andy, the site manager for, not only being friendly all the time, but, so kind and cheerful when helping us in the rain with our broken jockey wheel problem.

This was my first time at this site and I would have no problem going back, we got a very nice welcome from Kenny and if you had any problems he would try to help if he could. There is a nice dog walk area that takes you into Aberlour, this is about a 40min walk if you are up to it. You are 12 miles from Elgin which is a very nice place to visit.

site very peaceful in the river spey area, north scotish coast less than 1 hour away, if you follow the coastal trail it takes in many small fishing villages, some which are still working. There are many distilleries close by being the main whisky produceing area, many of which do visitor tours
