We visited Mar Lodge Estate and the Linn of Dee at the suggestion of one of the locals. It is a very scenic drive with places to stop and take a nice walk. The Lodge is operated by the National Trust and is available as lodging. There are also activities available on the estate. We hope to have the opportunity...

I spent the weekend at Mar Lodge for a friends wedding. I cannot describe how perfect the lodge is for a wedding venue. The stag ballroom is incredible, the lodge itself has enough bedrooms, lounges and kitchens to accommodate plenty of guests and the fact that we had the lodge for the full weekend meant that it was more than...

Amazing place. Lovely apartments. This was our fourth time staying. Great walks nearby, place always very clean. Very powerful showers. Only disappointment was they had stopped the fresh flowers in the rooms. Which was a really lovely touch,

What an amazing place, We were shown to our fantastic apartment (Braeriach) and could not be believe the standard. Large lounge/diner, with balcony, kitchen/breakfast room, bedroom with fourposter and bathroom with roll top bath. We used the snooker room which was very grand, the whole experience was definitely something we want to repeat. We had a tour of the estate...

My husband and I have had a delightful stay in Braeriach Apartment at Mar Lodge this week. What a spectacularly beautiful place! The self-catering apartment is huge, well appointed and very comfortable. The Lodge itself is lovely and has an interesting history.

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!
