While staying in the village 3 of us were privileged to take part in a NTS grouse Lek safari led by NTS ranger Kim Neilson. The early start was well worth it to see the mist rise over the heather clad hills and witness at close range the intriguing mating dance of 6 male black grouse. Kim's knowledge and information...

We stayed in one of the 'apartments' at Mar Lodge with two young children and had a fantastic weekend. The accommodation was better than the official three stars would suggest. Clean, well equipped, spacious, and with fantastic views. We were there for a family wedding, but would return for a holiday. Could not fault!

The lodge is located in the cairngorns and is very isolated on some very picturesque roads. The staff were very accomodating and the rooms spacious and equipped. Wifi is only available in one room in the house but the venue has so much to see that spending time on the internet is not really worth bothering! They have a lot... More

Myself and my daughter have just returned from a 4 night stay at mar lodge. We stayed in the Derry apartment which can sleep 4. There are two bedrooms (twin and double) a bathroom and kitchen/lounge. The size of the apartment is unreal! Apparently the whole place was fully booked (4 or 5 apartments in total) but we never really... More

A group of 15 friends and family stayed at this super estate for a midweek break and as hard as I tried I just cannot find fault with the stay. It is spotless, elegant, luxurious and probably the best value holiday our family have ever had. It is run by the national trust and they were very helpful. The rooms... More

Mar Lodge is a perfect place tucked away in the highlands. You would never just "trip" over this wonderful place to stay but well worth seeking it out. The lodge with it's various self catered apartments is just what you want if you are looking for peace and quiet. The apartments are spacious and comfortable and a great base to... More

17 of us have just spent an amazing week at Mar Lodge. From young children to Munro baggers the lodge was ideal. The Bynack apartment had a big dining room table and social area. The large oven and 2 dishwashers in the kitchen made life much easier. The staff were on hand to cater for our needs such as providing... More

As an American, I attended my first Scottish wedding at the Mar Lodge Estates in the Highlands. All I can say is WOW! Queen Victoria layed the cornerstone in October 1895, sadly the place burned but was rebuilt to the origional plans. Some of the furnishings were saved and placed back into the lodge. The Highland games started on these... More

The lodge has many self contained appartments, of varying sizes, that can be booked out through the Scottish National Trust, there are even a couple of luxury houses on the estate that can be booked out. The location is glorious situated on Royal Deeside, just outside the village of Braemar, this is ideal for walks in the hills as plenty... More
