Default Highrange - in Aviemore

Good clean toilet/shower block, kiddies play park is a bit minimal and a wee bit tatty. Site has a good range of pitches.

Location is very good - on the outskirts of the village (5-7min walk into the centre) where there is an array of shops, restaurants, pubs etc.

On site itself is a pretty good Italian restaurant with a bar and sports on the TV if that's your thing.

Overall a good place to break your journey with an overnight stop if travelling north/south or even a good central location to base yourself for exploring the Cairngorm region

Good stuff - the wife and I fancy doing a bit of exploring in the highlands next year. Will look into using that as a stopping off point.

We love going to Park Cliffe in the Lakes for some weekend breaks, amazing site - highly recommended

It's a bit noisy as its right off the A9, good well serviced.

Bit further out is the awesome Rothiemurchus and almost as awesome Glenmore. Camp in the forests under the trees

I second this. Drive an extra five minutes up the hill road. You won't be dissapointed.

Default Highrange campsite

We've camped here as it's walking distance to the town of Aviemore and also to the Bridge Inn pub. You have take-away pizza on your doorstep (if that's your thing) and the shower block is accessed via a key fob.

The pitches are in two places, open air right near the road or higher up under the trees on a sort of dirt hard packed gravel. These are a bit quieter but you can hear the road. We've stayed here 6 years and only once I really heard the road noise, wind must blow a different way in May!

I love the other campsite, but this is a bit easier to leave you camper and walk into town.
