The Aberdeenshire region
At the heart of the Cairngorms National Park lies Mar Lodge, a beautifully 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.
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.
