Myself and my daughter have just returned from a 4 night stay at mar lodge. We stayed in the Derry apartment which can sleep 4.
There are two bedrooms (twin and double) a bathroom and kitchen/lounge. The size of the apartment is unreal!
Apparently the whole place was fully booked (4 or 5 apartments in total) but we never really saw or heard anyone.
It is remote, about 3 miles outside of the nearest village Braemar. We used it as a base to explore the area and weren't disappointed. Stunning scenery and great walks for all abilities and ages on the doorstep and loads to do in the surrounding areas.
The only negative for us were the stags heads in the corridor of our apartment...bit creepy on a night but they are part of the lodges history, it was a hunting lodge!
Staff are friendly and helpful, great place to stay.
