SOE in Scotland training site during ww2


Glenmore Lodge lies some six miles east of Aviemore, and was formerly a Victorian hunting lodge, and became a hostel when the Central Council for Physical Education acquired it in 1947. It later became the Loch Morlich Youth Hostel, and then the Cairngorm Lodge Youth Hostel, after Scotland’s National Outdoor Training Centre was opened in 1996, within the Cairngorm National Park, and was named Glenmore. In 1973, in a ceremony attended by the King of Norway, the Norwegian Memorial Stone was dedicated to the memory of those who had trained in the area, and lost their lives in World War II.
