About The Badaguish Centre

The Badaguish Cairngorm Outdoor Centre is a place where you can explore and develop new and exciting skills in safety, amidst the superb forest and mountain scenery of the Cairngorms National Park in the Scottish Highlands. It is committed to Access for All and has a range of fully accessible and affordable accommodation and facilities that have been purpose designed to meet the needs of youth, education, community and family groups and to suit all budgets.


Forest Lodges, All season Camping Pods and a large Summer Campsite offer complete flexibility and are available in any combination to meet the needs of your group.


The Centre enjoys a secluded setting in Glenmore Forest Park.

  • Half way between Aviemore and Cairngorm Mountain.
  • 1.5 miles from the main road and Loch Morlich Watersports Centre.

With plenty space and freedom both on and off site it’s a great place to relax and an ideal central location for activities too.

How You Can Help

By visiting Badaguish you are already helping – thank you. If you’ve enjoyed your visit please just spread the word. If you are keen to be a part of our work here please get in touch and ask about our volunteering opportunities with the Holiday Care team.


Aviemore Half Marathon, 10K & Family Fun Run

This is our most popular annual fundraising event. You can enjoy the best view of the Northern Corries, be surrounded by mountains and with hardly a hill on the course to climb – a PB guaranteed!

If that all sounds a bit too active please get in touch and ask about joining our volunteers on the support team.
