Hosting your events at The Lodge on the Loch Spa Retreat
The Lodge on the Loch Spa Retreat is close enough to Aberdeen to afford our guests a convenient weekend break, and yet far enough into the heart of Royal Deeside to provide the ideal base for a tour of many of Scotland’s most famous sites and landmarks - Balmoral Castle being high on the list. On our doorstep is the delightful historic town of Aboyne, a popular destination for all visitors to Royal Deeside, and just down the road finds the Cairngorms National Park: the largest area of protected wilderness in the UK. There’s plenty to see and do in Royal Deeside and to help you plan your stay we’ve put together a short introduction to some of the main activities and attractions.
Conveniently located for Aberdeen and its International Airport, ‘The Lodge’ is amongst the best business and corporate conference venues in Royal Deeside. Our spacious glass-fronted function rooms afford a flexible space that can be adapted to your individual needs, whilst the surrounding mountain and river landscape provides the perfect environment in which your delegates can relax and socialise.
Our conference events are fully-catered and include bespoke menus offering the very best of locally sourced cuisine. Overnight delegates stay in our 4* AA accredited bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms and comfy king-size double beds as standard, and we have a large variety of ‘extra-curricula’ activities available including golf, hill walking, cycling and exclusive use of our own ‘Reflect Spa’.

Why should Australians have all the fun? For sure, our antipodean cousins enjoy more sunshine and temperatures in the high 30s, but with our unique glass-walled marquee, and plentiful supply of patio heaters, you can enjoy the great outdoors of Royal Deeside come rain or shine. And if the weather’s nice, well then there’s nothing quite like an early evening barbeque on the deck beside the tranquil Loch of Aboyne, Aberdeen Angus beefsteaks, fresh Scottish Langoustines and Deeside venison burgers on the grill, watching the sun set across the Cairngorms National Park.
We stock our barbeques with the finest local Aberdeenshire meats and fresh fish, sourced from the North Sea and West of Scotland. If you have any special menu requests that’s fine, we will be happy to put together a bespoke BBQ platter just for you. If you would like to know more about our ‘Barbeque Parties’ please contact us.
