This exquisite destination spa hotel takes luxurious shelter in a classic Scottish castle.
What's more romantic than decadent spa services and chic accommodations tucked inside a historic Scottish castle? Stobo Castle cuts a dashing figure amid stunning rural scenery. Guests rooms and suites are done in a designer provincial style, and feature amenities such as slippers and Molton Brown bath products. If you want to splash out, book the Cashmere Suite with “his and hers” plasma televisions, a limestone bathtub and richly textured fabrics throughout. For groups, the standalone Park Lodge and Castle Lodge provide accommodation for 12 and 24, respectively.
The on-site spa is the main draw here. It welcomes guests with a cozy, country house atmosphere in its relaxation room and quirky (but soothing) design in the treatment rooms. Along with a full range of massages, facials, mud wraps and Reiki, the spa offers Caudalie treatments, Darphin skin therapy, Neom well-being treatments and a wealth of holistic therapies. The hotel’s chef-driven cuisine showcases indigenous Scottish ingredients. There is also a piazza-style bar and coffee shop for drinks and casual fare. Along with the castle itself, attractions include a scenic loch, Japanese water gardens and numerous routes for exploration by mountain bike.
