Gleneagles’ new spa journeys characterised by wild Scottish botanicals, science and nutrition
POSTED 06 Sep 2021 . BY Megan Whitby
The spa's upgrades and new journeys have been selected to help cement Gleneagles' position as Scotland's leading wellness destination
Scotland’s landmark country estate and hotel The Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire will launch an all-new wellness offering this month inspired by The Gleneagles estate and nature.

The spa has been upgraded with two new relaxation spaces called the Spa Lounge and The Courtyard – both completed with a palette of pastel pink and green tones and an abundance of lush plants.

Guests will also be able to visit a new Wellness Cafe partnered with Forager Herbs which curates natural herbal tea blends to target common wellbeing issues such as stress, lethargy, sleeplessness and digestion issues.

With any treatment that is booked, Gleneagles will offer a herbal tea to compliment the experience.

The destination has also altered its traditional guest journey by no longer having guests report to a reception desk on arrival to complete pre-treatment forms. Instead, visitors will undergo a consultation prior to arrival to raise any medical conditions, allergies, injuries or concerns.

Brand new treatment opportunities

The highlight of the refreshed spa offering is Gleneagles’ revamped wellness menu, including new retreats, treatments and spa partnerships.

For the first time, Gleneagles is producing its own balms, oils and scrubs derived from herbs and plants found on its estate and the surrounding countryside.

A new range of essences has been created and used to create six signature treatments tailored to the individual.

Each begins with an aroma pathway during which the therapist will share a selection of Gleneagles oils, basing the tailormade treatment on the oil and the individual.

The Long Exhale – Gleneagles’ new two-hour signature treatment – incorporates body stretches delivered with flax seed, borage and sea buckthorn oils infused with neroli, rose otto and sandalwood balm followed by a jade comb facial massage and scalp massage.

Priced at £225 (€262, US$312), the signature treatment will also include an introductory salt, heather and honey foot ritual.

The new launch will also see Gleneagles welcome Dr. Barbara Sturm’s first UK residency outside of London.

As part of the evolved wellness offering, two Dr. Barbara Sturm clinic rooms will join Gleneagles' 20 treatment rooms and its existing vitality pool, sauna, crystal steamroom, experience showers and heated loungers.

In addition, premium natural skincare brand Tata Harper has also developed bespoke rituals for the hotel that can be experienced as a facial or full body massage; balance & grounding; soothe & rest; and illuminate & energise.

Retreat to the countryside
Also joining the spa line-up is naturopath, functional medicine practitioner and nutritionist, Rosemary Ferguson, who has created new menus for the Spa and Garden Cafés and will host three one-off three-day retreats later this year and in 2022.

In addition to nutrition-specific sessions and experiences, retreat participants will have the opportunity to explore Gleneagles’ 850-acres of surrounding estate and partake in a number of alfresco wellbeing activities such as mountainside yoga, wild swimming and silent hikes with meditation.

Gleneagles’ new Wild Wellness retreat – a mindful and restorative nature-based wellness programme – will also offer a dose of holistic healing.

Guided by the principle that exposure to nature has serious restorative and health-boosting powers, the two-day retreat invites guests to reconnect with the natural rhythm of the dramatic Scottish landscape and to nurture the mind, body and soul.
