“This 19th-century Gothic mansion on a 400-acre estate offers a very attractive alternative to staying in the city. The country-house feel and magnificent views over gardens to the River Clyde and the Kilpatrick Hills make it hard to believe that central Glasgow is only 20 minutes away. The handsome, deeply comfortable bedrooms all enjoy the views. There’s also an excellent dining room, courteous staff and a seductive Aveda spa.”

“Mar Hall is a luxury five-star golf & spa resort located within a tranquil 240 acre woodland estate just 10 minutes from Glasgow International Airport. It combines 53 individual bedrooms, a championship golf course and the only Aveda Destination Spa in the UK, with extensive dining, wedding, conference and banqueting facilities.
The centrepiece of Mar Hall is a baronial mansion that was completed in the 1840s yet retains many original features. Overlooking the River Clyde, this grand private residence enjoys views towards the Kilpatrick Hills.”
"A classy out-of-town option, a 19th century neo-Gothic baronial mansion designed by Sir Robert Smirke, architect of the British Museum, transformed into a five-star resort in 2004 after a £15-million renovation. Excellent spa with pool and full range of treatments, and an 18-hole golf course."
