Macdonald Cardrona Hotel, Golf & Spa
It might only lie 20 miles from the hustle of Edinburgh, but the Cardona Hotel Spa feels like another world altogether. Breathe in the fresh air and run free in the open countryside where optimum wellness comes with unforgettable views. Set in 200 acres of private grounds, the spa exploits its beautiful rural location to the max with panoramic vistas of the rolling hills of the Scottish borders – notable especially when you take your morning swim in the tranquil glass-fronted 18-metre pool. To loosen up stiff and well-travelled limbs, feel the welcome expert touch of the spa therapists who aim to revive your mind, body and spirits with a selection of Decleor rituals and alternative treatments including soothing hot stone massages.
