Spent a day here as part of a Ramblers Walking Festival. We had some guided walks around a small part of the estate as it is a huge area of land and open to the public. We were also fortunate to get entry to Marr Lodge which is only open to the public on 2 days a year. The highlight... More

One of the most beautiful places in Scotland. Lovely scenic drive up to the Lin of Dee, where you will find a dramatic waterfall/ gorge, visible from the road, well worth the drive. One of the best waterfalls in Scotland..plenty of walking in the area also.

Went on a Guided walk through the Mar Lodge Estate, organised by National Trust for Scotland, searching for 'Jock's Bike'. Beautiful Highland scenery even in the rain, and Kim, our guide, was very informative about the area and all the wildlife we saw. Walk was suitable for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness. So much better than doing the... More

Wonderful highland scenery . Great place to see red squirrels, birdwatch for capercalie and grouse. Also there are two beautiful waterfalls the Linn of Dee and Linn of Quoich within easy walking distance of the car park. Its free entry and free parking for National Trust members. There are no refreshments sold on site so bring a picnic.
