 Loved the setting. Very quiet and peaceful. Unfortunately toilet and shower facilities were shut due to Covid-19 but we were informed about that when we booked.

Will definitely visit again.

Reviewer: Gkkad 19 reviews from this member

 This used to be my favourite site, but to my mind it has unfortunately gone down hill a bit over the last few years.

The main issue for me is that they have now completely closed the older toilet block at the front of the site, which makes it a bit of a trek (in the rain and snow when we were there) if you are on a pitch at the front. Add to this the fact that the only block is then closed for 2hrs daily - not ideal.

We were only given one key card, which meant we all had to go to the showers together or wait on the other coming back.

On the plus side the elsan's have thankfully been modernised. I get the feeling that the touring area is now of less importance than the statics/chalets

 Just back from a fantastic trip to this great site.

A good reception from the staff on site with lots of info and handy hints.

We pitched up in the woods near to the toilets. The pitch was level and well sheltered. No electric hook up but the temperature was only -2C so no problems with that. The toilet facilities were spotless, well maintained and heated.

It's a great location with easy access to the mountains (weather permitting) Aviemore and the surrounding area with lots of great walks and cycling.

We had breakfast down at the estate cafe and the bacon rolls are highly recommended.

We'll be back

Reviewer: Lorfal 23 reviews from this member

 The site is in a beautiful setting. Many lovely walks for all skill levels right from the site. Tracks are fantastic for biking. Great for dogs. There is a safe, enclosed dog exercise area where dogs can run free through woodland and scrub area. Facilities clean and warm. Helpful warden.

My only gripe is the incessant gunfire from nearby clay shooting. Appreciate most folk are out and about during the day, but it does spoil the peace. It went on all day long.

 We came to this using the postcode and the satnav. We had also looked it up on the map carefully beforehand. The satnav showed it to be up a more remote road and 3. 5 miles further on. Check the actual map if you have not been before.

The site is situated in part of a forest, and you are protected for strong winds, but you are not subject to a lot of direct sunshine. No problem for us, as the weather was wet!

The site has two toilet and washing facilities. Both were good and kept very clean.

If you feel like living it up, it, you can go down to the Hilton Hotel, less than a mile away, and have a coffee. ! A first for us, and they accept people wearing outdoor clothing.

The staff were helpful and we were very pleased with the site.

 Our first visit to this site for a 4 night stay. On arrival we were made very welcome by the site wardens and directed to our pitch. The site is quite large and beautifully set in the edge of the forest, our pitch was large and flat hardstanding gravel, reasonably level. We were given 2 key cards for the toilet as there were 4 of us, which was good. The toilet block is at the rear of the site in the tent camping area and is very good with large almost separate rooms with toilet sink and shower cubicle. There is also a dish wash section with 2 sinks for dishwashing. There was another dish wash come laundry room with 1 more dish washing sink, which meant there were 3 dish wash sinks in total which seemed a little inadequate for a site this size. There were plenty water service points and 2 chemical waste points which were good. We had frozen water taps during our visit but fresh water was available in the Laundry room.

As we had a dog this is a fantastic location in the Rothiemurchus forest for walking, with good paths directly from the site. We also walked into Aviemore (2 miles)on a good cycle path, where we found all the outdoor shops were dog friendly, other dog Friendly places were, Mambos cafe bar, Macdui's Restaurant and the Old Bridge Inn. The Rothiemurchas Centre where the is a Farm shop and Cafe is 10 minutes walk from the site. We also saw the Tree Zone TreeTop Adventure attraction at The Rothiemurchus Centre. A great site in a great location, We will be back.

Reviewer: Vets on tour 3 reviews from this member

 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.

Reviewer: Wraggy121 5 reviews from this member

 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

Reviewer: Scotsbob 8 reviews from this member

 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.
