At the heart of the Cairngorms National Park lies Mar Lodge, a 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.
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.
