Spa & Leisure

Set against the backdrop of Ben Lomond, the Vital Health Club and Spa at Macdonald Forest Hills has an enviable view of the Scottish landscape in which to work out and wind down, with facilities including an 18 metre swimming pool, gym, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi and a relaxation lounge.

There are also four treatment rooms which, using the always decadent Elemis product range, offer massages, facials, scrubs, wraps and pre-natal treatments, hot stone massages, Jessica manicures and pedicures, and a selection of finishing touches.

Hotel & Accommodation

A short trip from Glasgow and Edinburgh, this four star hotel has 49 bedrooms and 65 self-catering lodges decorated in a classic style, and invariably characterised by that quintessential touch of tartan – and if you opt for one of the Feature Rooms there is also the option of a four-poster bed, and perhaps a private balcony as well.

The Garden Restaurant offers a fine dining menu inspired by the Scottish Highlands, which is all the more fitting given its view across Loch Ard in the Trossachs. For a more relaxed setting however, there is also Rafters Bar and Bistro – a wood panelled environment serving lighter meals and afternoon snacks.
