A per­fect way to recharge af­ter fes­tive fun and frol­ics

Sunday Herald Life - - TRAVEL FEATURE -

JAN­UARY is tra­di­tion­ally a time to re­fresh and recharge af­ter the fes­tive fun and frol­ics is over and done with for yet an­other year.

It’s a time to give your waist­line (and per­haps your liver) a break from the mince pies, mulled wine and milk choco­late good­ies that can of­ten make up the typ­i­cal Christ­mas diet of your av­er­age Scot.

A great way to re­lax and iron out the knots from the hec­tic party sea­son is by tak­ing a spa break.

If you are for­tu­nate enough to have some­one treat you, great deals on such breaks make great Christ­mas gifts.

But if you can’t wait un­til Jan­uary, then why not take the stress out of Christ­mas by snap­ping up a fes­tive spa break pack­age?

Stobo Cas­tle has long been re­garded as one of Scot­land’s pre­mier spa des­ti­na­tions, and their two-night fes­tive pack­age is a great way to ex­pe­ri­ence all it has to of­fer.

Start­ing at just £409 per per­son, the pack­age in­cludes a 25 minute spa treat­ment of your choice upon ar­rival on Christ­mas Eve, as well as use of the spa fa­cil­i­ties and op­tional fit­ness classes to get you ready for the big day.

All meals are in­cluded, with the high­light a fan­tas­tic tra­di­tional Christ­mas din­ner with com­pli­men­tary wine through­out.

If you really want to get away from it all, then the Is­land Es­cape pack­age of­fered by the Auchran­nie re­sort on Ar­ran of­fers a truly in­dul­gent ex­pe­ri­ence.

From just £99pppn for an overnight stay in­clud­ing break­fast, you can en­joy a day’s re­lax­ation in their mod­ern ‘ASPA’, in­clud­ing £22.50 din­ner al­lowance in one of their won­der­ful restau­rants per per­son, as well as a per­sonal con­sul­ta­tion and ac­cess to their ex­ten­sive leisure fa­cil­i­ties dur­ing your stay.

The ho­tel will even take the strain off the jour­ney for you if you book their Ferry Pack­age, of­fer­ing a free pick-up ser­vice from the Brod­ick ferry ter­mi­nal.

LUX­URY STAY: The two-night fes­tive pack­age at Stobo Cas­tle is ideal for New Year re­cu­per­a­tion. AD­VER­TIS­ING FEA­TURE
