This Scottish Spa Has a Hot Tub That Overlooks Snowy Mountaintops

There's something rather special about Cameron House. It helps that I've spent a week every October here since I can remember, but I'm certain you'll find just the same connection on your first visit. It's a gothic-looking five-star hotel nestled on the edge of Loch Lomond in the Trossachs National Park that lords over much of midwest Scotland. It's easy to get sucked in by the grandeur of the hotel (all wood panelling and modern tartan furnishings; it's pretty spectacular), but what I'm here for is the spa. And what a spa it is. 

A little annoyingly, the spa itself is two miles up the road at the hotel's sister site, The Carrick. You can go just as a day guest, but if you're staying at the hotel, they'll put on a shuttle bus to get you there and bring you back again after, so really it isn't any fuss at all. This is the place I go when I fancy a really good nap, and there's plenty of opportunity for that. If you keep scrolling, I'll talk you through why this spa is quite frankly the most relaxing place on Earth.
