I have had the backpackers discount at this site - it was a few years ago, but I think it was half the normal fee. Fabulous site - stay there frequently with my husband, car camping. Agree the shop is well stocked and the cafe is well worth a visit. Sit where you can watch birds on the feeders....
And the cafe has now got a bar....
talking of bars don't forget it's only a short stroll up to Glenmore Lodge
... and a roll back down hill afterwards
Many thanks everyone for your helpful advice. I did give them all the information in my original e-mail and had read the rates on the website, but perhaps the employee who replied was ill-informed. I'll check my distances again and then decide whether to chase Loch Morlich or settle for Rothiemurchus.
I shouldn't bother with sending a parcel as they have shops in Aviemore. Even with the stupid prices they charge in the outdoor shops (nearly ten quid for a spork!!!!(outrageous)), its still cheaper buying deyhdrated scoff in a shop than sending it through the post and the spotty, vaguely interested teenager who serves you will be an 'king expert unless, of course, you place your order via his twitter feed.
Or there's proper shops that sell real food and pies.
Local wild(ish) camps are also available.
Fraser's Butchers closed?
What's the world coming to?
I mean, really....
