Myself, my partner and our two Siberian Huskies have had the pleasure of staying at Mar Lodge three times now. Once in Derry, and twice in Braeriach. The accommodation is outstanding, very clean and very comfortable. An added bonus this year was WiFi within the apartment. We always visit in Winter, hoping that we will get some snow and with...

Hi Disgwylfa, Thank you for your wonderful review, we are glad that you, your partner and your dogs enjoyed your visit and keep coming back! The walk through Clais Fhearnig is one of our favourites as well, but the track has suffered some flood damage and can be quite wet. It is very beautiful though, like a wee hidden glen.... More

This is just the most wonderful place. We have travelled from Australia and stayed here at least three times now. I never want to leave and I think about it often when I am back home. It is magical. Such a luxury to have space and comforts of home (including some taxidermy!) and the freedom to roam where you want... More

We were lucky, as one of our friends had been before and had said you should call first and ask if we could be shown around, we did and they could. We were greeted and given over an hour of our guides time. He told us wonderful stories of the original building, the great fire that nearly destroyed it and... More

Self catering hunting lodge suitable for large groups or less. Mar Lodge is perfectly situated in the National Trust of Scotland's Mar Lodge Estate. Lavish grand bedrooms without on suite facilities, but excellent bathrooms at your disposal. Very well appointed kitchen to cater for any occasion, and facilities include a snooker room. Surrounded by lush forests and a vast amount... More

Mar Lodge Estate, accessed via Braemar at the north end of Glenshee. Parking is by ticket, but proceeds go to the National Trust for Scotland. Quite simply, a stunning part of the country. Beautiful scenery. Munros to climb. Deer, eagle and if you are lucky, pine Martin and red squirrel. The walk along the riverside as you enter into the... More

Hi Bob P, Many thanks for the positive review! We couldn't agree more, we really are in a stunning area here. And a good word of advice regarding carrying midge hoods as well, thankfully we don't have too many bad midge days here but as you say one bad midge day is enough! The Mar Lodge Ranger Service More

The beautiful panelled reception rooms and dining rooms are very nice. One remarkable feature is the trophy room where hundreds of stags' heads are mounted .As well many stag trophy... More

We stayed here to attend a Wedding and the accommodations, service and food were wonderful. It is a very large old house in the wilds of the Cairngorms and the perfect venue for outdoor sports such as walking, off roading, photography, etc. Wish we could have stayed for longer ....

We were a large group and the apartment was extremely comfortable and spacious! Kim at The Ranger service took us up a valley allegedly looking for rutting deer but the deer were not out to play! Anyway we had a walk and chat with Kim who was a mind of information. A great activity to do!
