A new gift shop could be created in a historic lodge at the entrance to Balmoral Castle.

The Category B listed Gate Lodge sits opposite Crathie Bridge and is currently used as private rented accommodation. A ticket office sits alongside it.

Developers want to demolish the ticket office and move it into the lodge. The gift shop would also be created.

The lodge is believed to have been designed in 1858.
