Luxury Spa Hotels & Breaks In Scotland

Luxury Spas Around Scotland

by Vivien Devlin

A century ago visitors would come to Scotland "to take the waters" in several Hydro hotels - the original Spas. In 1881 Peebles Hydro had a resident doctor who would prescribe such healing treatments as a Russian bath, a volcanic mud bath or a sun and air bath.

The world of the Spa has changed a great deal since then. 5 star country resorts and city hotels throughout Scotland are now offering far more than a golf course, a tennis court or a quiet game of croquet. Now these leading hotels offer the ultimate in gymnasium technology and health spas with every kind of treatment from aromatherapy facials to a Thai massage.

Luxury Scotland represents nine of the very best Spa hotels and Destination Spas in Scotland. Vivien Devlin, broadcaster, travel writer and a voluntary hedonist for Luxury Scotland has very much enjoyed the experience of discovering their benefits and delights.

Read on, enjoy Vivien's observations, find out more about Scotland's top destinations spas and, if tempted, plan to give yourself and your entire body, mind and spirit - a fabulous relaxing treat which will also benefit your health.
