We are staying on this lovely site at the moment and find it difficult to fault. We read the previous review with some confusion as we are almost on the furthest pitch from the toilet and it takes me 2. 5 minutes to walk to the facilities (I`m 76 and due a hip replacement). The walks from the site are lovely and the forest setting encourages a vast variety of wildlife - yes it is in a forest so will be dark at night - which is a joy to watch from out van.

The waste water point is not a problem, better than most, and simply involves turning the van around, which everyone here at the moment seems to understand. I suspect the previous reviewers were not experienced campers.

Aviemore offers the basics but don`t expect to take a large motorhome into the supermarket carpark. The helpful staff will advise you where to park if you need to stock up.

A great site for christmas.

Pros - secluded well spaced pitches and very clean shower and toilet facilities

Cons- 4 minute walk to shower, toilet facilities through the dark woods. This is not acceptable for women and children to walk alone at night to use the loo through the secluded camping area. Motorhome disposal grate not suitable as its not wide enough and was on the wrong side for my uk unit.

I would strongly suggest a shower / loo unit actually next to the touring site where everyone is parked

Just spent a night at this great forest site just a short distance from Aviemore ( 40 mins walk or 15 mins by cycle). A very pleasant friendly welcome from the warden who is a fountain of local info, also gives out a handful of leaflets etc for the local area. We had a sizable pitch for our m/home complete with water tap & EHU. The only 'gripe' is the toilet/shower chalet is fair walk from the reception through' the wood past all the other pitches and could be a bit of a walk for the 'oldies'. The facilities are all self contained with sink/shower & toilet in the cubicle & plenty of hot water. Poss for future a small toilet block located near the reception end of the site for people. No WIFI on site but avail at the Hilton just up the road, TV depending on aerial.

All in all a great site, many forest/woodland walks. Easy bike trails, plenty of wild life to see. Another visit will be on the cards. P. S. There is a bus service which runs hourly and passes the site.

Stunning site, situated on the edge of a lovely river and right on the doorstep for walks and cycle tracks.

Less than a mile to the Rothiemurchus centre, where a weeks worth of activities could be booked, with something to suit everyone.

2 mile pleasant walk or cycle into the centre of Aviemore.

Just a short walk (500M) to the hilton where you can use the facilities as a day guest or just have a drink or bite to eat.

The toilets were unisex style with each being a combined toilet, wash basin, shower unit with lots of space, bunkers and hooks and were spotless, all controlled by swipe card.

Our kids made use of the large green near the entrance to play with other kids.

Very well maintained and clean, excellent facilities including a well stocked info/notice board, very pleasant wardens also.

Would visit again and recommend to others.

The most beautiful campsite I have ever seen. Got to choose where to pitch our site out of a few places. Set up right next to a picturesque stream which runs through the campsite under beautiful trees. Also experienced no midges whilst on the site, which is always good! The site is very well managed with clean showers. Each shower is in its own locked room with a wash basin and toilet, and you have a key card to get into the building.

Not far to walk to Aviemore either if you come on the train and I think there was also a bus service.

Aviemore in itself isn't what I expected (I was expecting a little village/town). There are many chain stores including Tesco, Mountain Warehouse, Blacks, and I think even a New Look amongst others. It was useful to have the Tesco though so I can't really complain too much. Had a lovely walk up to Craigellachie and there are some paths through the forest with lovely forest scenery. Loch an Eilean is also nearby.

Expensive at 11 per person per night, but well worth the money in my opinion.

Reviewer: Leeds Loiners 7 reviews from this member

Spent 3 nights here camped amongst the trees by the stream. Nothing much changed since our last visit a good few years ago except the prices. 11 per person per night in September seems quite expensive to me for a 2 man tent with no electrics. However it's like wild camping but with washroom facilities. Loads of hot water and the shower blocks are kept in excellent condition. Warden very helpful and obliging. Some nice walks from the site and Aviemore offers just about everything you could need. Because of high prices will be a while before we visit here again which is sad as we really like this site and have spent lots of time there over the years.
