    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

A rural environment always adds a little something extra to a leisure break, and the pastoral location of Macdonald Houston House proves just that. So in addition to outdoor tennis courts, the hotel has a gym, 18-metre pool, a sauna and a steam room; and favours Elemis and Jessica Nails products in a comprehensive treatments list complete with make-up consultations and finishing touches.

Hotel & Accommodation

Once visited by Mary Queen of Scots, Macdonald Houstoun House retains the charm of a 16th century bolthole in 22 acres of woodland just west of Edinburgh. The hotel has 70 rooms, which comes as something of a surprise given the boutique, homely exterior aspect; while interiors straddle the line between classic regional accents and modern design.

Befitting a country estate, Jeremy Wares at Houston House combines a fine dining experience with a pleasant lack of pretence and showcasing Scotland’s favourite ingredients. There is also the Vaulted Bar – a cosy environment, not least of all because of the open hearth; open for drinks, teas and coffees throughout the day.
