Sitting in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, next to Loch Morlich, seven miles from Aviemore and close to the Cairngorm mountain funicular and snow sports area, Cairngorm Lodge is a great place to stay for year-round outdoor fun.
The former shooting lodge offers a range of shared and private accommodation, a comfortable lounge area with magnificent views over the Cairngorms, a well-equipped self-catering kitchen and spacious dining area as well as a secure cycle store and drying room. WiFi is available but very limited due to the surrounding mountains.
Glenmore is a fabulous area for activities including walking, climbing, mountain biking, snow and water sports, but it's also somewhere to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of Scotland, with easy walking and cycling paths through the Caledonian Pine Forest on the doorstep. For something different, visit the Reindeer Centre where you can learn about and feed these friendly, free-roaming animals.
Check-in is from 17.00-22.30, with daytime access to the hostel from 14.00 onwards. If arriving after 22.00 please notify reservations or the hostel at the time of booking. Checkout is 10.00.
