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.

Worth Noting

Fish and chip van on site every Thursday night – highly recommended.

This site is an ideal location for those wishing to explore the Morayshire towns countryside...

This review is for Speyside by Craigellachie

This site is an ideal location for those wishing to explore the Morayshire towns countryside and coast. The site is peaceful and relaxing. It is maintained by to a very high standard of cleanliness by the extremely helpful wardens. The weekly visit of the fish and chip van can be highly recommended. Until this recent visit it was a numbder of years since we had visited Speyside however the ambience of the site will mean we ensure our swift return. Congratulations to the wardens on every aspect of their work.

This was our first visit to a camping and caravan club site.

This review is for Speyside by Craigellachie

This was our first visit to a camping and caravan club site. Friendly welcome from site staff and were given options for pitch location. Site is clean and tidy with the facilities being spotless. Site assistant was very helpful and pleasant. Disappointed that on one night 3 adults and 3 children along with two dogs arrived. The kids and dogs ran around the site, the dogs not being on a lead at their pitch and allowed to wander. At one stage two kids and one dog were under our caravan and I had to go out to them. This I did not expect from a CCC site and was surprised that this was not picked up by site staff and addressed, although the next morning when we raised with a member of staff, she did say that they were not aware of irresponsibility of this group. Lesson learnt, if this happens again I would report straight to site staff to deal with. Fortunate that this group only stayed one night, and the remainder of our stay was pleasant and relaxing. Will return to this site in the future as it is a good base for exploring this area.

On arriving the staff was not very wellcoming or helpful.

This review is for Speyside by Craigellachie

On arriving the staff was not very wellcoming or helpful. Did not explain where anything was or what there was to do around the site. After we was all set up kids was playing around and the other visitors were not very nice about them runing around and being kids. I felt like i was being watch every time i went to toilet or shower. Kids were getting looked at all the time. 1 manny was nice he did not mind the kids but the rest of the ppl there were not. Took kids for shower and if the shower curtain was not pulled shut the water went everywhere. I can not shut curtain incase kids fall, also i need to wash them. Swing park is run down. Not suitable for kids. The whole place is in desperate need of upgrading and thinking more of what type of ppl they want there. I think this site should be a no kids site Oap only site.

This was a relatively last minute booking as we wanted to explore the area.

This review is for Speyside by Craigellachie

This was a relatively last minute booking as we wanted to explore the area. We turned up and were given a spot with excellent views of the hills and fields. Nothing was too much trouble and we were given excellent local knowledge about where to walk, eat, visit etc. The site is extremely well maintained and the facilities were clean and everything that was needed.
