Luxury Spa Hotels & Breaks In Scotland

Luxury Spas & Spa Breaks in Scotland

by Vivien Devlin

A century ago visitors would come to Scotland "to take the waters" in several Scottish Hydro hotels. These were 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 considerably since those early days. Scotland's 5 star country resorts and city hotels now offer far more than a golf course, a tennis court or a quiet game of croquet. Leading hotels are equipped with the ultimate in gymnasium technology and innovative health spas with every kind of treatment from aromatherapy facials to a Thai massage.

Luxury Scotland represent eight of the very best Spa hotels and Destination Spas in Scotland. Vivien Devlin, broadcaster, travel writer and a voluntary hedonist for Luxury Scotland has enjoyed the Scottish Spa break experience and writes about discovering their benefits and delights.
