Scotland meets modern treatments at this stunning spa
Nestled on the banks of the tranquil Loch Lomond in the heart of rural Scotland, Carrick Spa at Cameron House is a world away from the drudgery of everyday life. Unless, of course your typical daily routine includes a high end spa treatment, a long soak in a thermal pool, an organic meal in a top restaurant and a nip of whisky by the fire.
‘The Bonnie Banks o’ Loch Lomond’ are famed throughout Scotland for their shady glens, still waters, distant hills and wild flora, all of which have been immortalised in a legendary folk song. But you might want to add your own verse after you’ve spent a day or two at Carrick Spa.
As part of the QHotels group, the spa has all the classic treatments you would expect, including exclusive ESPA facials and CARITA body treatments. Body treatments such as the Signature Rainshower Massage, and the Lagoon Hydration, take inspiration from nature, while face treatments such as the Advanced Enzyme Facial and Pro-Lift Booster use up-to-the-minute technology to offer real results.
Most treatments can be customised for men, although the enzyme facial and the deep tissue massages are particularly popular with visiting gentlemen.
This is a small spa which is extremely popular among those in the know, so it is essential to book ahead.
It is also worth pointing out that although the spa is a part of the Cameron House complex, it is actually based 2.5 miles away from the hotel. A concierge service is available to bring guests back and forth whenever they like.
Alternatively, you could ask the hotel’s staff to recommend a walking trail so that you can really make the most of the natural surroundings.
