Why stay here ...

Grantown-On-Spey Caravan Park is an excellent family holiday location set in the heart of the Highlands and within the beautiful Cairngorm National Park. The caravan park is but a short stroll away from the sedate little town of Grantown-on-Spey with its interesting variety of quaint old-world shops and restaurants.

For those who love the great outdoors, Grantown-On-Spey Caravan Park will not disappoint. Family walkers of all abilities are spoilt for choice - from gentle woodland trails and summer strolls across the fragrant moors to rugged scree scrambles of the more challenging variety. A haven for wildlife, the caravan site is in a charmed location where you're likely to see red deer roaming freely. There are several golf courses in the area, and anglers can fish for salmon or trout in the famous River Spey. For sightseeing expeditions, you will be conveniently close to the impressive Cairngorms and the skiing village of Aviemore. The world's only Malt Whisky Trail is a must where you can sample many of Scotland's finest whiskies.

Highland Excellence

Just had a 14 night stay at this site. Wardens very helpful and friendly. We had a super pitch with excellent views of Cairngorm mountain. All facilities spotless, Wifi very good. There are some very good small shops in Grantown with items not found elsewhere. Would highly recommend this site to anyone touring in the highlands.

Overpriced

The wardens were very friendly and helpful and the site was nice and peaceful - but - I booked a standard size hardstanding pitch for a small motorhome and utility tent which we was told would be adequate, however when we tried to pitch up the pitch was barely big enough for my SMALL motorhome and wouldn't have been able to put the small tent up - after complaining we were moved to a grass pitch which although gave us more room I didn't really want to be on grass. Also, the shower block on the upper level only had 3 toilets and showers - this is not satisfactory for 31.25 per night. The TV was absolutely useless as was the free wifi - for these prices I would expect a proper size pitch, proper facilities and better tv reception. You're paying CMC prices but not getting the same standard.

First time Caravanners!

We bought our first caravan in January and were eager to try it out! Having previously been away in our 1974 VW Campervan, this was to be a different experience. Grantown on Spey Caravan Site is great! We arrived 7.30pm and although reception was closed, there was someone waiting to show us to our pitch and handover our FreeSat box. What a bonus having great WIFI too. Shower Block was spotless. We were in at various times during the day/evening and it was always clean. Lovely and cosy too with underfloor heating. A very short walk into town, with our 6 year old boy, was great as meant we could have a glass of wine with our meal. Also a short walk to the swimming pool. We will most definitely be back to this caravan site, hopefully with the sun this time, rather than the snow in March :-) We did not go prepared for snow :-( The staff on site were also very friendly. We look forward to returning again sometime this year.

Fantastic site with friendly conscientious wardens

We had three weeks at Grantown in January and what a great site. From the moment we arrived the wardens were very friendly and made us feel welcome. We were allowed to change our allocated pitch, we only changed as I preferred the view. We were escorted to our pitch and made sure we were settled in. We had a lot of snow during our stay which was what we'd gone for being big kids and even though the site was very quiet the wardens still ensured the high standards on site were maintained and were often on site outside their normal hours clearing snow from the access roads and salting round the amenity block. The village just a few minutes walk away has everything you could need during your stay. There are plenty of tearooms but unluckily for us the only tearoom which accepted dogs was closed for the whole of January, such is life. There are lots of walks for all abilities and all in all a great pace to visit. We will definitely be back probably not at peak season though. Thank you Grantown on Spey for a lovely holiday.

Great location - tranquil & quiet - friendly staff.

Having read the previous reviews on this site we were a little concerned that it was not all that it was made out to be. Nothing could have been further from the truth. It is truly a wonderful place to stay. Our only mistake is that we didn’t stay much longer. We had 5 nights here at the end of August and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The site is well laid out, has generous fully serviced pitches. The toilets, washing and shower facilities were immaculate, with underfloor heating as well. An added bonus there was good WiFi reception and it was free!!! The staff were very friendly whenever we met them, and helpful whenever we needed them. The site is a comfortable easy walk into Grantown on Spey where there is a selection of local shops, cafes and bars together with a good Coop supermarket. A local iconic pub is the Craig Bar which is highly recommended for its welcoming atmosphere and wholesome pies. If you like fine dining and a la carte menus don’t go there - pie and chips is the only option - 8 varieties plus 3 veggie options - like it or leave it. We loved it and will return when next in the area. Great base to visit the Cairngorms, Moray Coast, Inverness & beyond. This will be a must stay place when we next come to the highlands - fantastic and highly recommended.
