From health spa retreats to romantic city spa escapes, think of Scotland and thoughts of whisky, tartan, shortbread and some of the warmest welcomes around will not be too far behind, especially at Scotland's delightful spa hotels.
Spa resorts in Scotland range from specialist health resorts to romantic luxury hotels, as well as those with some of the country’s finest golf courses. The Macdonald Marine Hotel offers beautiful hotel breaks that benefit from breathtaking coastlines at North Berwick, which has the kind of backdrop that really sets the tone for relaxing spa getaways.
Meanwhile the Principal Blythswood Square Hotel in Glasgow, with its proximity to the city’s interesting historical sites and picture perfect shopping districts, makes for an elegant mother and daughter spa day.
The beauty of all UK spa breaks is the wide variety available. So in addition to the romantic and the multifaceted hotels with spas, there are plenty of options for a spa retreat in Scotland to really relax and unwind in the company of expert knowledge.
Perhaps chief amongst the spas in Scotland with all the trimmings for health and wellbeing as well as luxury, is the famous Gleneagles resort. A prized golfing destination, Gleneagles offers a complete health spa experience where you can simply use facilities or take the opportunity to address a particular health concern, all whilst staying in your robe all day long!
Of course, sometimes the perfect spa break is finding a location where you can take the whole family, and when it comes to welcoming children, this is a region that excels. Without compromising on parental enjoyment, the likes of Crerar Isle of Mull Hotel and Spa has all the elements for a family mini break with plenty of facilities, designated children’s swimming times and beautiful grounds to run around in.
