Hotels with hot tubs in Scotland

Scotland may not be a huge country but it boasts jaw dropping scenery, vibrant cities, history and culture dating back thousands of years plus outdoor activities and adventures galore and fabulous food. With its growing popularity as a holiday destination, Scotland's hotels have had to up their game to attract discerning clients. And those hotels with hot tubs in Scotland are certainly on to a winner, because there is no better place to luxuriate in hot bubbles and gaze at a sky full of stars!

Outdoor spa pool Gleneagles

In the majority of our recommendations for hotels with hot tubs in Scotland, you'll find that the hot tub (or spa pool, or hydro pool or whatever the establishment has decided to call it) is attached to a great spa. However if it's privacy you're after, then you'll have to head north to Inverness. Book an "extra decadent" room at the Rocpool Reserve and you'll get your very own terrace with hot tub.

Our other recommendations come from luxury properties mainly in Glasgow or Edinburgh, but there's also one in Perthshire, one near Loch Lomond and another overlooking Loch Ness. So there should be something for everyone whether you're looking for a lively city break or a romantic rural escape.
