Relax is the castle's private spa, available to all guests

Dalhousie Castle Spa

For the ultimate in relaxation, visit The Spa at Dalhousie Castle, a hydro spa and the first of its kind in Scotland. The Spa at Dalhousie Castle combines relaxing and therapeutic spa treatments with invigorating and rejuvenating hydro facilities.

These include everything from the Hydro Pool, with its multi-massage jet pool, to the Rasul, a small chamber in which you apply mud to give your body and mind a cleanse, and from the Ottoman, a Turkish style steam bath, to the Tropical Rain & Cold Fog Shower, which gently refreshes your senses and invigorates your body.

Spa Facilities

Hydro Pool

Cleanse mind and body in the Hydro Pool, a beautiful feature of the spa area. A multi-massage jet pool incorporates an airbed, neck and specific muscular body massage jets; it is designed to relieve aches and pains, leaving one feeling energized and invigorated.


A Turkish style steam bath with similar heating principals as the Laconium. Now major fluctuations in heat and the volume of steam can be varied to achieve different comforting effects. Aroma essences can be introduced and relax the user. Kneipp Hoses are provided to cool down the body and stimulate circulation.

Tropical Rain & Cold Fog Shower

Activate your sense with this snail-shaped shower; it incorporates lighting effects to induce a feeling of warmth and well being. The 'Cold Fog' replaces a traditional plunge pool to cool down the body after heat exposure.

Kneipp Foot Baths

These foot baths are designed with hot and cold taps to bathe and relax the feet with specially designed stones and pebbles to massage. The foot baths cool the body’s circulation in a sociable setting.


Enjoy a new feeling of well-being in the Conservatory Rotunda Tepidarium, overlooking the South Esk River. Relax at your leisure and enjoy the spectacular view.

The Orangery Restaurant

This is easily accessible from the spa. Enjoy fresh foods and light dishes from the new Mediterranean menu. This conservatory-style facility overlooking the South Esk River is an ideal place to rest, replenish and unwind.
