Glencoe mountain resort

Post by mountainmummy » Sat Jan 23, 2016 11:11 pm

Hi

Glencoe mountain's facebook page states you can camp for free over the winter. I messaged them to check about campervans and the reply was £15 per night for hook up and water.

When I explained we're unconverted so can't use hook up, they said I could park in the car park for free. Preferably the overflow car park else we might be woken early by the car park attendants.

We're going to try it out soon.

Hi Gordon.

I saw the St Andrews meet but unfortunately we won't make that one. Another time hopefully, I'd like to nosy round some bigger vans.

Have a good one.

Stayed up at Glenshee a couple of years ago for skiing and it was £5 a night for a hookup, free to park. Only about six HUs though when we went so it's pot luck.

Was there two weeks ago, its great, hookup is £15, there is a bar & food available till about 9pm, new loos & showers on site for those who are hooked up. Very friendly bunch up there, bit of a weekend vibe with people chilling on the vernada after the bar closes.

Great skiing too, plenty of area for a day or two & currently no shortage of snow
