Opening up to the public for the first time as the only Kohler Waters Spa outside the USA, it offers a luxury spa retreat in the heart of Scotland with a focus on hydrotherapy and organic treatments.

Specialising in marine and aromatherapy treatments by Comfort Zone, Phytomer and Voya, therapies employ natural ingredients including seaweed for its anti-inflammatory and soothing qualities, mineral rich peat for its restorative and healing properties and Himalayan salt to detoxify.


Expertly crafted treatments by Margaret Dabbs, the woman whom A-listers and royals call upon to get their feet red-carpet-ready, are on offer for manicures and pedicures. Guests can also expect highly customised treatments by the spa’s therapists, as part of the ‘custom time’ menu, where they will receive a personalised treatment programme.
