About Mar Lodge
Mar Lodge is a charming, secluded cottage hidden away in the 300 acre Knockespoch Estate with superb uninterrupted views over the Aberdeenshire countryside to the prominent peak of the Tap o’ Noth, site of the second highest hill fort in Scotland (and a ‘must do’ walk during your stay). The cottage has been renovated from a traditional Victorian dwelling to provide wonderfully spacious holiday accommodation. Knockespoch Estate is close to the village of Clatt, in the lee of the Correen Hills, and makes an ideal holiday base for exploring this unspoilt area of north east Scotland.
The cottage is single storey and the sitting room with its high ceiling is a characterful and bright room featuring a wood burning stove, comfy sofas and delightful furnishings. It is a great setting to enjoy a relaxing evening. The kitchen is fully equipped and is ideal for informal dining while enjoying the views. The bedroom, with its king sized bed and open fire, is truly a haven for a peaceful night’s sleep. The sun porch enables guests to enjoy the views on chillier days and also to spot the abundant wildlife, which includes many varieties of bird, red squirrels and both roe and red deer.
Outside the cottage there is only peaceful seclusion, bird song and the rustle of leaves in the trees. Guests can choose to wander the lovely walks within the estate or venture further afield.
