Mar Lodge Estate has been managed since 1995 to conserve its landscape, archaeological sites, historic buildings, wildlife and other cultural and natural heritage features; to provide public benefit through both access and conservation; whilst still functioning as a highland sporting estate.
The Trust’s work at Mar Lodge is progressing through its ownership. The Management Principles have established our vision for how we care for the estate, and the first fifteen years have set in train a process which will influence management far into the future.
