Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel & Spa Aberfoyle, Stirlingshire

There are some retreats which seem to have everything you need for total indulgence, and the superb Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel is certainly one of them. Located close to the picturesque banks of the gorgeous Loch Ard, it’s a haven of peace and tranquillity that will soothe you from the very first moment. Both days and stays spent here will always be special.

If you wish to explore the area, you’ll find so much to see and do. The excellent Blair Drummond Safari Park is always worth a visit, and the finest scenery can be savoured amid the hugely impressive Trossachs National Park. Stirling Castle is a must for history buffs, while the exciting cities of both Edinburgh and Glasgow are within easy reach from here.

With more than 50 delicious bedrooms available, an overnight stay at Forest Hills is a major temptation. There’s a wonderful gym here and a spa with four wonderfully peaceful treatment rooms. Later, you can savour fine dining amid an elegant setting at the hotel’s top of the range restaurant.

The Spa

We all need to find a peaceful sanctuary now and then, so make a date with the magnificent Forest Hills. The exquisite treatment rooms play host to some inspirational pampering experiences that will never be forgotten.

There is an extensive selection of treatments and therapies on the menu, enabling you to tailor your indulgence to match your needs. And when you need to extend the feel-good factor even longer, pay a visit to the stunning 18-metre pool.

The Workout

Everything about time spent in the Health Club here is designed to give you a highly enjoyable workout. The gorgeous views of the countryside can be savoured while you achieve your goals via a great range of state of the art equipment.

Plenty of expert advice and guidance is on hand from the team of personal trainers. And once you’re happy with your efforts, make sure you spend some recovery time in the pool or in the sauna.

The Food

There’s something wonderfully opulent about dining on the banks of Loch Ard, so make a date with the elegant Garden Restaurant. Mouth-watering dishes featuring the finest meats and fishes are par for the course.

The menu offers a tempting range of succulent Scottish classics, many of which showcase the finest locally sourced ingredients. A high quality selection of wines and whiskies will also add to the sense of occasion.

Overnight spa break

Annie Smith, Stirling

The hotel is a bit run down but immaculate inside. Spa is in different building but easily accessed.
We enjoyed a back massage each and both therapists were very good.
Pool was good size but a bit cold.
Jacuzzi was not working due to waiting for a repair.
Sauna and steam rooms were good.

A mother daughter treat

Helen Orr, Edinburgh

Absolutely fabulous! I wanted the spa break to be a special treat for my daughter's birthday. We were greeted warmly from the moment we arrived by friendly staff who went out of their way to ensure we had a lovely time. The spa experience was professional, the food delicious, the wine recommendation spot on, the rooms comfortable, the view spectacular and overall a really special experience which my daughter and I have vowed to repeat every year. Thank you to all the delightful staff at Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel and Spa. x
