Alan Rogers Review

This site is attractively laid out in a fairly informal style in several adjoining areas connected by narrow, part gravel, part tarmac roads, with access to the lochside. One of these areas, the Pinewood Area, is very popular and has 28 hardstandings (some distance from the toilet block). Of the 206 marked pitches on fairly level, firm grass, 78 have 16A electricity. This site, with something for everyone, would be great for family holidays. The Glenmore Forest Park lies close to the sandy shore of Loch Morlich amidst conifer woods and surrounded on three sides by the impressive Cairngorm mountains. There is regular snowfall in the winter months. Large motorhomes are accepted but check availability with site in advance.

The park is conveniently situated for a range of activities, including skiing (extensive lift system), orienteering, hill and mountain walking (way-marked walks), fishing and non-motorised watersports on the Loch. There is canoeing and kayaking on Loch Morlich and, of course, many mountains provide a challenge across all seasons. Come wintertime, take to the slopes on skis or a snowboard and experience some of the UK's finest runs. Other attractions near the site include the Strathspey Steam Railway, Cairngorm Mountain Railway and the Cairngorm Mountain Centre. Visitors should be prepared for cold conditions and be aware that part of the site closes during winter so availability may be more limited.
