The Lodge

A former Victorian Hunting Lodge on the banks of the River Gairn in beautiful Royal Deeside. Suited for large groups and company retreats.


It is a great place to spend time relaxing in the company of good friends or family. If you wish, catering can be arranged at an additional cost. This can be for the occasional meal or for the duration of your stay.

Gairnshiel Lodge is a unique hideaway for both company or solitude.

There are many things to do in the area, castles to explore, whisky distilleries to empty, two ski resorts close by, not to mention the host of outdoor pursuits which are available. The Lodge is also ideal for hill walking clubs, cyclists, artists and hosting small Corporate Events. With 10 bedrooms (8 ensuite) the lodge can accommodate groups of up-to 25.

The Lodge is a great place to have a special party, celebration, family reunion or just a relaxing break away with a bunch of friends.
