Glenmore

Nature Centres & Reserves


    Glenmore is a National Nature Reserve run by Forestry Commission Scotland and encompasses Glenmore Forest Park.

    A haven for wildlife and outdoor enthusiasts alike, it's no surprise that Glenmore translates from the Gaelic as the ‘big glen'. Seek out some of the small but beautiful plants which are pinewood specialists, such as twinflower and one-flowered wintergreen, or just savour the fragrant carpet of needles beneath the ancient granny pines. Red squirrels, crossbills and crested tit can all be found and the forest is often alive with the sound of bird song.

    Glenmore provides opportunities for walking, cycling, orienteering, cross-country skiing and bird-watching in the forest while watersports, fishing and sailing is available on Loch Morlich. There is a camping and caravan site and a visitor centre.
