Mar Lodge Estate National Nature Reserve

Toggle location map

Mar Lodge Estate NNR is Britain's largest nature reserve and a wildlife wonderland right in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park.

The dramatic landscape acts as the backdrop to The Dark Knight Rises when Tom Hardy's Bane hijacks the plane in the action packed opening scene. Visitors will marvel at the beauty of the 29,000 hectare estate which is also home to Scotland's second highest mountain- but thankfully it will be a much more tranquil visit than those who travel with Bane.
