    Safe Hands for Cancer

    Accredited by the SATCC and part of the Safe Hands for Cancer Collection, this spa welcomes people living with or beyond cancer and offers a number of specialist trained therapists.

Spa & Leisure

Set against the backdrop of Ben Lomond, 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 apartments decorated in a classic style within the 25 acre estate. Characterised by a quintessential touch of tartan, 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. Meanwhile, apartments are perfect for family or group getaways with options of one, two and three bedrooms alongside a fully equipped kitchen, Nespresso machine, DVD player and satellite television, a balcony or terrace, and some even have their own sauna.

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 there is also Rafters Bar and Bistro – a wood panelled environment serving lighter meals and afternoon snacks.
