Glenmore Lodge is situated at the heart of the Cairngorms National Park just 8 miles from Aviemore. Our location provides immediate access to Britain’s most extensive and iconic high mountain range as well as the best rivers and lochs Scotland has to offer. The proximity to such great locations means you spend less time driving and more time learning and developing, ensuring you get great value for money…plus some pretty stunning scenery.
Glenmore Lodge has been operating for over 60 years. In that time we have developed an international reputation for delivering truly first class instruction. Don’t just take our word for it though. 99% of our guests say they would do another course at the centre and over 35% of all guests are repeat customers.
Our reputation for customer service has also been recognised by the Hospitality Industry. In June 2011 we acheived the standard required to receive the Hospitality Assured mark. This award is championed by the Institute of Hospitality and supported by the British Hospitality Association. It is awarded to businesses that put the customer first and focus on customer service throughout their entire business. Click here for more details.
We are proud to say there are many reasons why our customers return:
We offer a hassle free all-inclusive experience. All accommodation, food and equipment are included in the price as well as travel to and from the activity. We will even pick you up and drop you off at the local station before and after your course. You only need money for the bar and an evening meal if you arrive the night before the course starts.
As a national centre we have a remit from the Scottish government to provide and enhance outdoor activity, encouraging more people to expereince the outdoors more often. To achieve that we seek to provide the best possible value for money, delivering top quality instruction, kit & facilities with a not for profit ethos.
