Duchally Country Estate
About the spa
The grounds of the Duchally Country Estate are an experience in their own right, whether it’s venturing out on a highland safari, going fishing or simply going for a walk. For times when you have exhausted yourself on that front though or simply prefer to stay a little closer to your lodge, there is a leisure centre as well, which includes a pool and adjacent children's pool, a spa bath, steam room and a sauna, as well as a gym.
Adding another dimension to the experience is resident therapist, Brenda, whose repertoire of personalised treatments spans full body treatments and massages, facials, brow and lash treatments, manicures, pedicures and Siennax spray tanning as well. She works out of the leisure centre itself so whether you’re keen for a swim before, or a treatment after a steam, everything is available at your convenience.
About the accommodation
Set against a backdrop of 27 acres of Perthshire parkland, and with views of mountains, glens, lochs and rivers, Duchally Country Estate is so much more than a hotel. Guests have the option of accommodation in the main building which has eight rooms or one of 55 luxury lodges. Complete with their own kitchens, the contemporary-styled lodges are in contrast to the more traditional design of the hotel and sleep six to eight guests. Wifi can be reached within the lodges, as well as the public area.
Although the lodges are self-catering, back in the main hotel, Monteith’s restaurant and bar is worth a visit. A wood-panelled environment serving seasonal and traditional dishes and adhering to the principles of the Slow Food movement wherever possible (for which it has won awards), it is open for all meals and one of their particular specialities is the full Scottish breakfast. In the evening there is also a quintessentially regional bar offering a selection of 39 whiskeys.
