Scotland hotels with pools
Scotland hotels with pools: From family hotels to spa hotels Scotland as a holiday destination really has it all. From country house hotels with a wealth of history and elegant style, to spa hotels surrounded by the most incredible scenery, walking destinations to wedding locations, mountainous landscapes and coastal scenery, and that's not even getting started on the boutique city hotels in the likes of Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling. All these places have their own offerings when it comes to leisure. Scotland, for example, is the famed home of golf, whilst country pursuits such as shooting and fishing are also in high demand at the region's country estates, all discussed over exemplary food, wine and whisky come the evenings. Amongst it all however are the hotels with beautiful pools to exercise or relax in. No finer example exists perhaps than Douneside House at Royal Deeside. The palatial hotel in Aberdeenshire offers five star luxury to its guests, including a contemporary health club. Here you will find not only a 12.5 metre swimming pool, but also a sauna and steam room, state-of-the-art gymnasium, a games room and an all weather tennis court. For city slickers on the other hand, the iconic Blythswood Square Hotel in Glasgow is an extraordinarily elegant hotel and a landmark in the city as it was once the headquarters for The Royal Scottish Automobile Club. In addition to the idyllic location on a private garden square and plush furnishings, this townhouse hotel also has an ultra modern spa and gym, where guests revel in the joys of the hydrotherapy pool, sauna and crystal steam room. And those a mere two examples of the leisurely joys that Scotland has to offer.
