B Group with Dinnet House, Stables, Walled Garden, and East Lodge. Sited to the north of Dinnet House on the main Dinnet to Ballater road, the North Lodge is a distinctive building at the entrance to the policies. The Dictionary of Scottish Architects mentions only one lodge by A Marshall Mackenzie, namely the East Lodge, but this less ornate building is nevertheless of fine quality and shares some of the interesting detail seen at East Lodge.
