Fancy staying in the middle of the Glenmore forest in the Cairngorm National Park surrounded by forests, Loch Morlich, Loch An Eilein and the Cairngorm mountain range?
Hillwalking,  Monuntain Biking, Cross Country,forest cycling trails, running, kayaking and paddle boarding all on your doorstep!!,  

Booking via OutdoorLads is the only way to camp at the site. 5 nights of camping and a contribution to communal expenses is included in the event cost (communal hiring of activities hall, welcome drink on the 1st evening at the event briefing, BBQ area hire, cost of charcoal, snacks and desserts for the BBQ) so you do NOT need to also sign up to the   Multi activity event. Please bring your own drinks and food to cook on the BBQ. 

The location is 1100ft high in the forest with great views and lots of different  options on the doorstep without having to move your car! The closest rail way station is Aviemore (5 miles away) with several trains and buses links to Inverness, Glasgow and Edinburgh. Direct flights from London Gatwick and Bristol to Inverness airport only 30 mins drive away.

The actual activities will vary depending on the weather at the time but we already have a variety of different walks, mountain bike routes, forest cycles and running routes available. A short briefing each evening along with a message will be sent to all attendees so you’ll be able to see what’s on offer each day and to keep you updated of any changes! The meeting place for all events is outside the Wigwam kitchen.

On our 1st evening there will be a welcome drink, short event briefing & social in the activities hall and on Saturday a BBQ (Please bring your own food to cook on the BBQ) and an opportunity to socialise each evening in the communal kitchen & social space for campers (shown in the photos) and those staying in a camping pod - an ideal space when it’s raining! 

Campervans are not permitted at Badaguish.
