Spa Therapy & Retail Therapy

Heart & Soul of Scotland

Enjoy a spot of spa therapy and retail therapy when you pair Glasgow & Argyll, the Heart & Soul of Scotland.

Escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy a spa retreat in Argyll. You don’t have to go far from Glasgow to discover incredible spas where you can unwind in stunning natural surroundings. In Argyll you’ll find spas that combine luxury and with epic scenery.

The Carrick Spa at Cameron House on Loch Lomond is less than an hour from Glasgow, but it feels like a million miles away. This award-winning luxury spa offers a range of therapies and treatments in truly stunning surroundings. Make full use of the luxurious facilities on offer including the breath-taking rooftop infinity pool, saunas, steam rooms and aromatherapy room. 

Or how about heading to Portavadie on Loch Fyne? The entire spa facility has been designed to make the most of the setting. Watch the sun set over the loch from the infinity pool and enjoy a treatment in the exclusive upstairs space, which also has a hydro pool, sauna and steam room.

Feeling relaxed and rejuvenated, it’s time to head back to Glasgow for some retail therapy! Glasgow is a shopper’s paradise. You’ll find everything from vintage gems to designer gear as you explore the city’s shops and boutiques. The fashion hub is Glasgow's ‘Style Mile’, which is the city centre area around Buchanan Street, Argyle Street and Merchant City.

Princes Square is the top spot for fashionistas. This beautifully restored 19th--century building houses an incredible array of designer shops along with some great cafés. Merchant City, one of Glasgow’s oldest quarters dating back to the 1750s, is another good area for shopping and is packed with cool bars, restaurants, boutiques and galleries. Head to Glasgow’s West End for quirkier, more bohemian shopping options. 

And what better way to round off a day of spa therapy and retail therapy than a gin and tonic? Gin71 is Glasgow's first dedicated gin bar offering over 71 different gins from around the world.
