Mar Lodge Estate – Open Day

When is this event?

  1. 28th April 2024

The Mar Lodge Estate Open Day returns! This is when we fling open our doors and welcome anyone and everyone to the estate. All are welcome on the day.

You will be able to see inside the Stag Ballroom, have a tour of the historic lodge, walk around the lodge grounds, get up close to our estate vehicles, and hear all about our work here by meeting and chatting to estate staff.

All of our in-house teams will be on hand to chat, so you can meet the Stalking team, Ecologists, Ranger Service, Estate Maintenance and Visitor Services. So if you’ve got a question about stalking, or paths, or volunteering, or wildlife or weddings, or indeed any other subject you’ve been desperate to ask about but never had the chance, this is the event for you.

Refreshments will be available to purchase in the lodge (CASH ONLY), and the rangers will set up a free self-led activity to keep younger members of the family occupied.

The event is free, and open to all. Admittance to the ballroom is also free.

There is a small charge of £5 per person if you want to join a tour of the lodge itself (free to National Trust for Scotland, or National Trust members). Tours will be run every hour, throughout the day. You will be able to pay on the day, but if you want to pay in advance, you can do so here on Eventbrite. If you do pay in advance, please make sure you bring confirmation of your purchase with you on the day, otherwise you will still be charged £5 for admittance.

Visitors arriving by car will be able to drive over the Victoria Bridge for the Open Day. Signage will direct you via a one-way system towards the parking area, on the lawn next to the ballroom.

WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!


Where is this event being held?

From Braemar, take the public road west towards Linn of Dee. After about 6km (3.7 miles) the road descends in winding fashion down a hill. At the bottom of the hill is a small lodge house, and immediately on your right at this point you will see the white estate bridge. It says ‘no unauthorised vehicles’ but you are okay to drive across this bridge. Signage will then direct you to the event parking area once you are across the bridge.
