Getting Here Is Simple

Primland’s vast property means it is serviced by two entrances, one in the north and one in the south. The estate’s helipad is located at the North Gate near the Meadows of Dan, which is also the closest entrance to the main Lodge with its restaurants and spa, and The Highland Golf Course. The South Gate near Claudville provides access to the estate’s sports shooting and trail riding areas.
