Speyside by Craigellachie Camping and Caravanning Club Site is a stunning holiday site featured far enough away from the Aberdeenshire coast to be protected from the sea winds, but close enough that you can head out and explore this beautiful area at your leisure at any point during your stay.
Speyside by Craigellachie is a pet and child friendly holiday park, with plenty of open spaces for both to run around in, with a fun and safe play area provided especially for your little ones. Travellers of all tastes are welcomed to Speyside, with numerous pitches available for tents, motorhomes, and touring vehicles, while there are also a number of seasonal and fully serviced pitches, complete with electric hook-ups.
Wi-Fi is available across the site for those travellers unable to leave their busy lives behind despite being in such an awe-inspiring and tranquil location, while chemical disposal, washing up, and laundry facilities within a short distance of all our on-site pitches means you will never want for anything at Speyside. If the aim of your holiday here is to relax and just take in the surroundings, our handy on-site convenience store means you never have to leave the park during your stay, if you don’t wish to.
One of the things that makes Aberdeenshire holiday parks so popular is the beautiful landscape that surrounds them, and when you stay with us at Speyside you will find yourself within a stone’s throw of some of the most alluring countryside and scenery in all of the United Kingdom. The site itself features some light woodland and gentle slopes, but there’s something for everyone if you choose to explore further.
Highly recommended is “Speyside Way,” an 84-mile walk that passes near to our site. Although you obviously won’t be able to take in the whole walk, heading out from the site may inspire you to explore different sections of it later on in your stay. Take the car to the places you wish to see; the walk runs from the Moray Coast to the Grampian Mountains, through forests, rolling countryside, and past charming small villages.
Whisky lovers will find a number of distilleries in the local area, while those in the know about Scotland’s famous golfing heritage will be pleased to find a variety of world-class courses within an hour of the site.
Shops, pubs, and other amenities can be found in Elgin and surrounding towns and villages to ensure you can always find the things you want and need.

This is a lovely site, superbly maintained, spacious pitches, a really nice atmosphere and a peaceful setting. Everything worked, the loos and showers were immaculate (even fresh flowers in the gents) and the welcome was warm, friendly and relaxed.
We used this site having tried the other site in Aberlour and what a difference! Here we were met on ariival, shown to a lovely spot and made to feel like a valued visitor. NOT what happened at the 'Aberlour Gardens' site where despite booking we were brusquely 'welcomed' and squashed onto a tiny site amongst noisy, rowdy drinkers.
We warmly recommend 'Speyside by Craigellachie' to you.

the hard work getting put in by the current site managers made our stay avery welcome one.my wife and i could only find things to praise and nothing to be unhappy about.for those who enjoy peace and quiet and a centre from which to walk/cycle at any level,birdwatch, visit distilleries or shop in nearby Elgin this is the venue.We will certainly return before this season is over.
