Set in 29,000 hectares of magnificent Scottish countryside in the Cairngorms National Park, Mar Lodge Estate is surrounded by ancient forests, wild rivers and rugged peaks.
Built as a Victorian hunting lodge for the Duke and Duchess of Fife in 1895, it is an idyllic setting for Highland weddings. Civil, religious and humanist ceremonies can be held in the Great Hall, on the impressive balcony of the grand staircase or in the bright, beautifully furnished and spacious Drawing Room.
The stylish interconnecting public rooms are ideal for drinks receptions, and allow guests to relax, mingle and enjoy their surroundings before dinner in the beautifully appointed Craggan Ballroom or elegant Dining Room. From the Lodge, a short stroll leads to the Stag Ballroom for ceilidhs and dancing. For larger weddings a marquee can be erected on the lawn. Meanwhile, Mar Lodge’s impressive array of outdoor pursuits – including ranger walks, stalking days and clay pigeon shooting – make this a natural choice for team-building activities.
The Lodge can accommodate up to 150 guests for drinks receptions, 130 guests for ceremonies or 70 guests for dinner. The Stag Ballroom can accommodate up to 200 guests for drinks receptions, ceilidhs and dances or 160 guests for dinner. Up to 1,000 guests can be accommodated in the marquee.
