Why stay here ...

An easily accessible, level and spacious CL, surrounded by woodland and close enough to hear the River Livet. Many returning guests, so thank you for booking well in advance, if you can.

75% of pitch fees support the upkeep of Glenlivet community's Hall, a registered charity. We appreciate and enjoy our guests! You may be spoiled. So there! - Think occasional urges to share home baking, or maybe a lift to the nearby Croft Inn or Glenlivet distillery if your day's walking legs feel happily weary. You will of course not be bothered if solitude's your thing. (Please note that the marked football pitch is no longer used).

Ideally situated for the North Coast 500 Route, the 250 East Route, The Speyside Way and The Whisky Trail.

Glenlivet is at the northern gateway to the cairngorms, Britain's largest National Park; trailing for outdoorsy folk. For walkers and cyclists: more than 100 km of nearby marked ways through exciting landscapes or forestry. The north coast's beaches and fishing villages are within easy driving distance. Ben Rinnes is our nearby hill walk with, on a clear day, magnificent views right across to Caithness. Munro baggers eat out your hearts on nearby Ben Avon or amongst the pull of The Cairngorm's other stunning peaks.

Hugely popular new mountain biking trails on Glenlivet Estate, pony trekking, salmon fishing or just gentle winding down. Birdsong in the CL's surrounding trees, with a glass of something lovely and some sunshine, yes please!

Nothing wrong with a bit of stillness. Maybe you'll see roe deer, a hare or red squirrel. I even saw a pine marten at close quarters!

The pitches are well away from our lovely Hall, which is in occasional use. We're a friendly bunch. You'd be welcome to share. Occasional theatre from North East Arts Touring (NEAT) or an informal session of music and song. We have a small open bar for over 18's between 2 and 5 each Saturday afternoon, weekly guided walks that leave from the car park; even a herb garden for 'plein air' chefts!

Hoping to welcome you here. Meg (attendant).

Perfect little spot

Glenlivet
Booked for 2 nights over a May weekend and we were the only people here. Grassy area beside the village hall with plenty of space plus a community herb garden. Only noise you will hear are tractors, birdsong and the river. The adjacent B road was amazingly quiet, more like a country lane. Easy walk to the distillery and local walks beyond - we did one of the smugglers trails. Facilities are good. Separate mens and womens showers and toilets with key code access. No lock on the shower room door though as there are two showers with communal drying/dressing area. Just watch out if you add another 20p while mid shower as water then blasts a brief amount of scalding water! Recommend the recently opened Croft Inn a 3 minute drive away for superb Thai food in the evening. Different menu at lunchtimes. They welcome dogs in the bar area too. Best to book as word is getting around about how good it is. There is currently no rubbish disposal on site apart from recycling but Meg is working hard to sort this out with the council. There is a public bin not too far away that can be used.

Very nice peaceful location

Glenlivet
Stayed here for 2 nights with our motorhome. Lovely place, very quiet and not far from The Glenlivet distillery. Plenty of good walks in the area. The site is off grid with no electric hook up, but has all other facilities with toilets and showers. Megan was very helpful and very welcoming. Definitely worth a visit

Great welcome and well looked after site

Glenlivet
Returning from the north coast we were delighted with our find of Glenlivet Village Hall site. Helen was charming when we called to book just an hour or so before our arrival and extremely welcoming on our arrival. We really felt that she would have gone out of her way to help us should we have needed anything. We had stayed in a number of places over a two week period and whilst this site had limited facilities, what it did have were exceptionally clean (shower/loo block), really pretty area and very peaceful location and great value for money. We would definitely enjoy going back and really appreciated the friendliness of the site and that helen was there to make sure we were comfortable. So nice. Lucky to find such a great location that was well cared for by people that obviously care. Thank you.

An excellent CL

Glenlivet
The delights of Glenlivet and the surrounding area are well known.Sadly, the delights of this CL appear to be very much less well known to our members because the site is somewhat underused. Admittedly, there is no hookup facility but in compensation, there is access to a very good showerblock within the adjoining public hall. The field is huge and sheltered and peaceful with no passing traffic except for farm vehicles . The welcome from Helen, the attendant, is genuinely warm. Please go. You will be glad you did and should I be wrong, the distillery where you can drown your sorrows is within walking distance.

Great CL

Glenlivet
Just been to this gem of a cl in such a beautiful area. Brilliant location for scenic walks, visits to local towns/villages, not to mention visits to the many great malt whisky distilleries in the area (also Walkers Shortbread factory shop in Aberlour with great products and low prices) We spotted the site online in an area we intended to visit, on our way back down from Orkney. Although it requested a 3-day email to confirm a booking, we were travelling the next day, so emailed and decided to risk just turning up. As it was a morning arrival we could move elsewhere if no space. We arrived and found 3 units on site, 2 were leaving the following day, so decided to set up. We met Helen later that first evening (she visits the site daily) who was most understanding, very pleasant and very helpful as regards information about the area etc. Unfortunately our gas ran out on the second day which we only discovered at around 5.00pm. Facing an uncertain 20+ mile journey for new gas, we decided to decamp, as we were only going 35 miles to our next cl (at Fisherford) which could take us a day early. (memo to self and others - check gas level more often for cl's without electric !) Another memo to self - visit again and for longer this great cl at Glenlivet
