Visit a hotel in a castle in Ayrshire, where guests are greeted by rolling countryside, fairytale architecture and a dedicated loch side spa complete with an infinity swimming pool. Or perhaps you would prefer a Swedish wood fired hot tub and a Finnish sauna cabin as well as holistic treatments using regional organic skincare products, including those that contain powerfully therapeutic Hebridean seaweed.

Wellbeing also includes plenty of fitness, from country strolls to facilities including all-weather tennis courts, state-of-the-art gyms and elegant indoor lap pools. Whether it’s country retreats or city escapism you’re looking for, these are some of the best spa hotels in Scotland to visit.
