Really enjoyed this site. Warden very helpful and friendly. Beautiful setting in woodland with stream. Lovely cycle routes (or walks) on your doorstep. Just a few minutes from Aviemore by car or bike if you want restaurants, shops, bank etc. Very convenient from the main A-road if you are heading North or returning South, for example. Would definitely return here.

We spent one night here. I agree with others, it is a bit pricey for what it is. We were not using ourawning for one night so we had a smaller EHU pitch which was fine but II'm sure the distance from the next door unit was below the regulation limit. Hubby feels the wardens were trying to cram people in.

The toilet block is spotless although it is a bit of a walk and I should imagine not great if you have small children. I did manage to get some washing done while there which made me happy.

Early next morning while sitting drinking tea, I also saw a red squirrel which made me very very happy.

Very friendly welcome in a beautiful part of the world, unfortunately as we had booked EHU we were pitched in what felt like a car park - grass central area, pitches off roadway backing onto static caravans. If you have a tent or no EHU you would be able to pitch in the trees near the river. The facilities are at the end of the site which meant that we didn't use them so cannot comment. It's not quite the wilderness site that we expected. Walk through the site takes you to pretty woodland/river walk. If you cycle back towards Aviemore, we can recommend the Ristorante Italiano - warm welcome and great food - we chose from the menu but buffet menu was proving very popular.

We wouldn't visit this site again, not through anything that they did wrong, it just wasn't what we were expecting but it is in a stunning part of the world.

Think that this site is very overpriced for what they offer. This is the dearest site that we have stayed on yet! Believe me we caravan a lot. The toilets are also far too far away. 4 showers between everyone means a long wait for one. For the price paid I personally expect an awful lit more. They only get away with this price because of the location. Definitely would not return.

Stayed at this wonderful site for 3 nights after only intending to stay 1! We have a large Motorhome and 2 young children. The site is situated in the woodland and the kids loved exploring and collecting sticks. No need for a playground here! It's a natural playground. The site is only 5-10 minutes into aviemore and equally convenient for Loch Morlich and the Cainrgorms. It is also almost opposite (5 minute walk) from a Hilton hotel which welcomes non residents. Although the food (or service!) in the Bistro wasn't fantastic, the kids loved the evening cabaret!

We visited the Caingorms and recommend taking the train up the mountain. Also took a boat out on Loch Morlich just up the road and visited the local theme park (more of a wooded adventure park), Landmark, which is about 15-20 minutes drive through aviemore.

If for any reason you unfortunately need a doctor, I would recommend the surgery in aviemore. They saw my daughter immediately and we came out with a prescription!

Fantastic area, lovely site, lots to do for families and will hopefully return one day as we didn't have time to do everything we wanted (steam train etc).

Only negative about the site is that the toilet block is quite a long walk (particularly with little ones). We had a pitch near the entrance and the old toilet block has now been closed (due to complaints about the decor!) but it really needs renovating and opening up again to make this site a 10/10!

We were lucky enough to get a pitch on this site over the last weekend in September - with stunning Scottish autumn weather. We were towards the road up to the woodland area -halfway between the toilet blocks - as we knew the new block was up in the tent area, we never actually used the older one. The new one is great, individual bathrooms just like home - would think it could be busy in that block at peak times. The bathrooms were spotless - included dishwash area - water in sinks is v hot and you were warned - but also would suggest you step back a little as the pressure of the valve meant water bouncing off base of sink and all over you !

The location of the site is excellent and while it lacks the remoteness of Glenmore, the forestry commission Site up the road, it makes up for that with its convenient proximity to Aviemore and is a quieter site. The site is actually on the trail up to the Larighru pass - the trail can be cycled with hybrid or mountain bike up to the lodge and on to loch morlich or loch an eillan - or down into aviemore all off road till the town - excellent family friendly cycling in all directions - a great effort has been put in the area for accessible paths and they were building a new one suitable for electric w'chairs up at Glenmore forest. Also Glenmore is one the forests with charging points for e bikes - and these are available to hire in Aviemore -I wouldn't hesitate to do that if my pedal power gave out -just to get on these wonderful mountain paths with fabulous views

We ate at the druie at Rothiemurchas visitors centre - we had to cycle the trail in the dark with bike lights as it's a few miles away - but it was worth it for the excellent dinner - we didn't eat in the nearer Coylumbridge as have eaten there before and not been impressed - for family eating try the Italian at the road end as you come into Aviemore. The site was peaceful - although quite full, it's by the road which is quite busy -but you don't have to go far to lose the road noise and it didn't deter red squirrels from visiting the trees beside our pitch

An electric token operates barrier at night and washroom entrance -10quid refund deposit The wardens were friendly and helpful - they were just leaving for the season. Would certainly go back -site open in dec -but it's very popular - need to book and snow (and some has already fallen ) can make some pitches unavailable
