Mar Lodge Estate

A call from the wild
Mar Lodge at the centre of the estate

Set amid magnificent Scottish countryside, in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, Mar Lodge Estate is surrounded by ancient forests, rolling glens, wild rivers and rugged peaks.

Originally built as a Victorian hunting lodge for the Duke and Duchess of Fife in 1895, Mar Lodge is an idyllic setting for Highland weddings and an exclusive venue for corporate events, family gatherings and private parties.
With luxury self-catering and bunkhouse accommodation within the Lodge and wider estate, your family, friends, guests or delegates are guaranteed an unforgettable experience. 

Mar Lodge Estate offers a wide range of outdoor activities and pursuits, including ranger-led walks, early-bird safaris, clay pigeon shooting and archery, as well as traditional field sports, such as stag stalking, grouse shooting and salmon fishing.

In addition, the Glenshee and Lecht ski centres are within easy reach, at 13 and 26 miles respectively.
