We followed the postcode on Sat Nav - takes you to an outdoor pursuits centre! Just stay on the main road until Loch Morvich, its easy to find the old fashioned way.

Massive site but separated into several areas so didn't feel big and commercial. Welcome from wardens was friendly and helpful, choice of pitches as the site was quite empty. One toilet / shower block closed, the other very warm and clean - showers hot, push buttons but good pressure.

There is a laundry with washing and drying machines, also sinks with plenty of hot water for hand-washing.

Several way-marked walks from the site ranging from a mile to 5 miles. Also a footpath / trail right back to Aviemore which is suitable for walking or cycling.

This is a great site if you want to walk, cycle or use the loch for watersports. There is only one small shop and bar and a visitor centre with a cafe over the road. Aviemore isn't far away but it feels like you well away from the world out in the mountains.

We loved the site and the area and will visit again.

I visited this site for a long weekend and I can say it is very and tidy. When we arrived we had our pick of the pitches but there are more than a few locations that I thought Hmm! Don't fancy that one!

The toilet facilities are clean but not spotless. The staff are pleasant and informative and the site is very quiet at night. There is a pub / tearoom just offsite which is worth a visit.

All in all I would recommend this site

We have been to this site before in summer a few years ago, and left a review, this time our stay was in the winter, in January and in a hired motorhome. We were a party of 3, myself, husband, 18 year old daughter and not forgetting the dog.

A completely different atmosphere and just as good as it was on our previous visit! We pitched under trees with a stunning view of the lake, so wonderful to look out on the wintry beauty, really atmospheric, we had snow and there was ice and it looked really ethereal at times.

The welcome we had was just as friendly as it had been before, and staff were very keen to be helpful. We didn't use the facility block (only one was open) as we had our own on board facilities, but we had a look and as usual it was spotlessly clean.

We caught the bus from just outside the site to the Ski centre at Aviemore, the dog was allowed on the bus too, and although we weren't skiing, we had the most wonderful snowy walk there, followed by a delicious bowl of warming carrot and coriander soup in the cafe at the ski centre, got some wonderful pictures, it was like being in another world.

In conclusion, we had the most wonderful time and cannot fault anything about the site, and will definitely be going back there next winter, hopefully with one of our other daughters, who we have promised to show the beauty of this part of Scotland in winter.

Great position, but the most expensive site we have used in all our travels across Europe.

For the price we would expect 5 star, but muddy pitches (supposed to be hardstanding) and ordinary facilities.

Walks from the site are wonderful, but sorry to repeat myself. Eye watering price out of season!

Wow, what a lovely site in a fantastic location with stunning views ! It is a large site 200+ pitches but was very quiet as our visit was in February. Situated 6 miles from Aviemore the site is set in the pine forest on the shore of Loch Morlich, half the site is open the other half in the forest, we got a pitch in the forest overlooking the loch, stunning spot, loads of wildlife we had a resident woodpecker and I saw my first red squirrel on site ! The toilet / shower facilities were immaculate and nice & warm, there is a laundrette & washing up room. There are some great walks around the loch and forest all with the stunning back drop of the Cairngorms. The Pine Martin bar is situated next door which has a small shop and cafe too. The wardens (when we found them - as the sign on the office door said just pitch up and come to pay tomorrow lol) were very friendly! There is an hourly bus service from outside the site to both Aviemore & Cairngorm mountain. I would definitely recommend this site we will be back

After reading some negative comments in the reviews was compelled to write a review. We found the wardens pleasant and helpful- Particularly we when asked to move our van in the middle of horrific wind at night. Warden did not complain about his window being knocked on out of hours and pointed us to a more sheltered area. One of our children fell sick and when we informed them we had to leave the warden said she hoped our child got better quickly and wished us well. Welcome also good when I expressed concern over sinking into wet grass they gave us grass over gravel pitch and took us to the pitch.

Site was busy as it was new year and only one toilet/ shower block open so it was busy but showers/ pot wash etc kept clean and warm.

The wooded section had some lights out which made it dark.

Good area - pub/cafe and mini dry sledge slope next to site. Kids park through trees. Shop at pub very expensive but useful. Opposite site visitor centre nice cafe and reindeer centre does treks into hills to see reindeer. We used the hourly bus to aviemore and cairngorm and drivers will stop wherever you ask them to. Lots of lovely walks round loch morlich too.

The site did flood badly but this was the week where people in cumbria and borders were put out of their homes so freak weather continues.

We recommend this site. It is expensive hence 9/10 and there is no family bathroom.
