About the Mar Lodge Estate
At the heart of the Cairngorms National Park lies Mar Lodge, a restored Victorian sporting lodge set in 29,380 hectares of wilderness, heather and ancient pine.
 
Visited by nobility since the medieval period, this prime Highland estate is now recognised as one of Scotland's most important conservation sites. From significant archaeological finds, to rare wildlife, and four of Britain's highest mountains, the estate is a jewel in the crown of one of the country's most iconic landscapes.
 
About the Area
Royal Deeside weaves along the River Dee, overlapping the Cairngorms National Park and Aberdeenshire. Best known for its majestic scenery, it is also an area rich in wildlife from alpine flora to Scottish wildcats.
 
Deeside's most famous admirer, Queen Victoria, purchased the Balmoral estate in 1848, and the royal connections continue to this day, with Princes William and Harry being regular visitors to the area. The nearest town to Mar Lodge is Braemar where you'll find local amenities as well as bases for hiking and skiing.
 
Things to do

  • Adventure-lovers can test themselves with challenging mountain hikes, while gentler walks can be enjoyed along lowland paths through magnificent countryside.

  • Summertime is perfect for mountain-biking, and in winter downhill and cross-country skiing at Glenshee are only a short drive away.


 
The Mar Lodge Ranger service runs a number of scheduled walks and events throughout the year and information on these can be found on our website - www.nts.org.uk/marlodge. However we can also be available on a more casual basis to guide visitors around the estate - whether you want to see spectacular wildlife, epic scenery or even just go for a post-Christmas leg stretch. Please call the Rangers office on 013397 20164.

For further details on corporate entertaining or any events, please contact Mar Lodge on +44 (0)13397 41276.

About Drum Castle
Drum is one of Royal Deeside’s top historic attractions, just 10 miles from Aberdeen. It is one of Scotland’s oldest tower houses and is set beside an ancient oak woodland and a walled garden that contains a fine collection of historic roses which perfume the air.
 
William de Irwyn was gifted the Royal Forest of Drum and the Tower of Drum by King Robert the Bruce in 1323. The tower has benefitted from various improvements over the centuries, including a Jacobean mansion house extension in 1619 and Victorian adaptations, such as the impressive library converted from the lower hall.
 
About the area
There is an exquisite 17th century chapel in the grounds of the castle, along with the newly-opened Old Laundry, the award-winning Wildlife Garden and the Garden of Historic Roses, which has over 200 varieties, representing rose cultivation from the 17th to the 20th centuries.
 
On the Drum Castle Estate are 3 trails, each 1.5km long, including the Wood of Drum, which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and home to oak trees dating from 1740, as well as red squirrels, red kites, roe deer and badgers.
 
Things to do

  • Crathes Castle has a fascinating history and is beautifully preserved, less than 20 miles away.

  • Take a picturesque drive through Royal Deeside's ancient caledonian pines to end up at the Mar Lodge Estate, a spectacular setting for walks and picnics.
