Overview

You will find a real taste of the Scottish Highlands in this area of castles, distilleries and beautiful scenery.

Walks, wildlife and whisky are all in abundance in the area surrounding our beautiful Speyside Club campsite. The campsite enjoys a rural position between the fabulous Moray coast and the Cairngorms Mountain range. Set on a gentle south-facing slope and surrounded by trees, Speyside campsite will appeal to those looking for a peaceful and relaxing base for their exploration of the area.

Views extend over the surrounding countryside and trees and hedges dot the site giving some areas a more secluded feel. Facilities include a laundry, children’s play area and a dog walk.

If you enjoy a wee dram of Scotland’s famous tipple, you’re in luck. The area surrounding the campsite boasts some 50 whisky distilleries, including the world-famous Macallan Distillery. Most offer tours and there are whisky festivals in May and September.

For walkers, the 84-mile Speyside Way connects the moray coast with the Grampian mountains and passes close to the campsite.

As well as being handy for the coast of Moray Firth, Elgin, Buckie, Forres, Nairn, Fochabers and Spey bay are all within easy reach. At Spey Bay you’ll find the Scottish Dolphin Centre where you can enjoy dolphin spotting or take a walk along the mouth of the River Spey.

This review is for Speyside by Craigellachie

Managers Andrew and Kenny are working very hard to make this old site a better place by improving the hard pitches and repair damages. Campsite has been neglected for years, although previous managers have tried. The peace and quiet of this site, together with the view (deer and birds of prey) have made it our favourite site, where we usually stay longer than planned. The vicinity of the whiskytrail, nice little towns and even the sea are making Speyside campsite the centre of a lovely holiday

This review is for Speyside by Craigellachie

The site is highly maintained with improved dog walk, flower displays, tidy grounds and fresh paintwork not to mention the super picnic tables throughout it. Andrew (Warden) and Kenny his assistant couldn't be more helpful and long may the campsite continue under their influence. The location is perfect for walking, cycling and just chilling. With fabulous local foods in 3 close villages of Craigellachie, Aberlour and Rothes. Let's not forget all the famous distilleries on the doorstep too and as far the Salmon fishing is concerned there is great fishing prices locally in Aberlour but you've got to be quick off the mark. Between my parents and myself we have been coming to this site for over 12 years I believe and its now coming back into its former glory which it had sadly lossed a few years ago. I can't recommend it enough. Come and see for yourself.

We have visited this site a few times in the past and we thought last year it had improved so much but this year it was even better. The site was looking first class. Apart from the quietness of the site, we have to stay here so that we can go to Baxters and have their wonderful pancakes. Also close by is Walkers shortbread and Glenffidich whiskey, both worth a visit.

For a step back in time, choose a sunny lunchtime and have a drink on the terrace of the Fiddichside Inn overlooking the river Fiddich. On the Keith road just out of Craigellachie. NB does not do food. Best meal we had was at the Mash Tun in Aberlour which also serves Scottish real ales (follow signs for Tourist Info in old station just off the main road). From the Mash Tun it is a short walk to the footbridge over the river Spey (from where it is a 2 mile (?) walk to the Speyside caravan park)
