lodges with hot tubs in Scotland

From the Highlands to the Lowlands, Scotland’s got some pretty impressive landscapes to see. Lots of people visit the country to hike the numerous trails, see wildlife, and stroll along the amazing Scottish beaches (I say stroll as opposed to sunbathe as one of things Scotland is less known for is the scorching days). But if you fancy relaxing amongst nature, you really should consider doing so from a lodge… with a hot tub… with a glass of Prosecco.

Many of the lodges in Scotland are designed to show off some of this natural beauty, with hot tubs on terraces where you can just gaze out to greenery. Alternatively, you might also want a Scotland lodge with a hot tub if you’re looking to have a party with a group – either way, there’s plenty to choose from.
