Here are our the top places in Scotland to book a hot tub lodge:
Scotland represents the perfect location to get away from that typical 9-5 routine, to cut off, and to do the things you want, with who you want.
From picturesque peaks to dense forests and clear lakes, Scotland is an ideal place to visit for those looking for a hot tub holiday that embraces the outdoors.
Typically, we find the most popular lodge hot tub breaks in Scotland are booked in The Lowlands. That said, there is accommodation on offer for couples, families and groups in both The Highlands and on some of the 100 islands dotting the Scottish coast.
Ready to book your hot tub holiday in Scotland, and want to plan some things to do? Here are some of our favourites.
Scotland is known for its big and beautiful peaks. Among them is Ben Nevis, located in Lochaber (near Fort William), Western Highland, and it helps to make up part of the Grampian Mountain Range.
Ben Nevis is the tallest peak in Scotland at 1345m (4411ft), and makes the bucket list for most walkers, hikers and outdoor enthusiasts. It is also one of the mountains included in the annual Three Peaks challenge.
With a range of routes, it’s suitable for walkers, hikers, climbers, and the perfect spot to brush up on your photography skills.
No hot tub break in Scotland is complete without a trip to Loch Ness. Whilst you might not catch a peak of Nessie on your trip out, you will get to see one of the biggest and beautiful lochs in the whole of Scotland. Loch Ness stands at 1 mile wide, 20 miles in length and at its very deepest, is 700ft.
But, Loch Ness isn’t the only loch to visit whilst enjoying your hot tub holiday in Scotland. There are over 30,000 lochs in Scotland, most of which are easily accessed by foot, bicycle or car.
You’d probably be a little surprised to know Scotland is home to an ancient Volcano; Arthur’s Seat. Located in the Holyrood 640 acre Park, Edinburgh, it sits at 251m above sea level.
Alongside a visit to Arthur’s Seat, there are plenty of other things to do locally. They include the likes of visiting a 2,000 year old fort (which is still well preserved), St Anthony’s Chapel.
And of course, the park itself is worth spending a few hours in; it’s recently become a site of Special Scientific Interest thanks to its huge array of plants and wildlife.
To plan your trip to Holyrood Park and Arthur’s Seat, we’d suggest heading to the Scotland’s National Tourist Board’s website here.
If you’re a golf nut, you’ll know Scotland is lucky enough to play host to one of the best golf courses - not just in the UK - in the World. Located in Fife, golfers travel to the Old Course at St.Andrews to experience the thrill of playing the best of the best.
But, being one of the best golf courses in the world definitely comes at a price. You can expect to pay nearing £200 to play a round at St.Andrews.
You’re probably booking a hot tub lodge in Scotland for one reason; you love the outdoors. And, of all the places to visit in Scotland, the Cairngorms is a fan favourite.
The Cairngorms is the largest UK National Park, and plays host to the likes of distilleries, castles, outdoor adventures and a huge array of other activities.
You’ll be able to watch wildlife, as well as enjoy cycle and walking routes. But, for the adrenaline junkies out there, in the summer there are tonnes of watersports to get involved with, and in winter, the likes of skiing, snowboarding and snow tubing are popular.
Looking to visit The Cairngorms? You’ll want to book a hot tub lodge in or near the following locations (all of which The Cairngorms covers): Aberdeenshire, Moray, Highland, Angus and Perth and Kinross.
