Interesting times ahead.
One of the most asked questions in Glen Lui has got to be “Aren’t they doing anything with Derry Lodge?”
It hasn’t been occupied since the Cairngorm Club gave up the lease in 1967 and has been slowly going downhill ever since.
However Mar Lodge Estate has now announced long term plans to bring the building back into use, as a walkers’ hostel.
The plans were on display at an open day at Mar Lodge at the weekend, but there’s little likelihood of them taking shape in the near future – sometime in about five years time is the estimate.
The basics are a hostel with 20-22 beds in two- and four-bed rooms, with the ground floor containing lounge, kitchen, dining room, meeting room, drying room , showers etc.
