Whether you want to kick back and relax in a jacuzzi, sauna or steam room, or splash about with the kids in the pool, you can in the Cairngorms…
There are few better ways to relax than hitting the spa, or indulging in a few, meditative laps of a pool, especially if it’s wet or gloomy outside. Alternatively, splashing around in a pool will keep kids entertained for hours to allow the weather to pass!

Spending time in a spa will boost both body and mind.
The word 'spa' is thought to come from the Latin phrase 'sales per aqua' which translates as 'health from water'.
The Romans understood well the benefits of spas, building huge baths for soldiers returning from war to ease their tired muscles and minds.
Today, we are becoming increasingly aware of the many therapeutic benefits of water and oils, and of slowing down occasionally from our busy lives to take time for a massage or beauty treatment.
The Cairngorms offers the perfect spa destination because your in-salon experience can be complemented with the healing power of nature.
Another thing that we are increasingly understanding in modern times, and researching is evidencing, is how being in nature positively affects our health.
Why not book in advance of your visit to ensure you secure a slot?
