Created for Dads, our special pamper experience for the month of June focuses on the magic of Scotland's waters. A soothing facial with ishga Skin Care products (based on the purest Scottish seaweed) is followed by a dram in SCOTCH - let Dad select between an organic, Hebridean or coastal whisky. Available all of June, bookings essential.
Today is both #GlobalWellnessDay and #WorldOceansDay - two important sustainability awareness dates for the environment and wellbeing. Did you know that we use ishga Skin Care in The Balmoral Spa? Derived from the Gaelic word for water, Ishga develop their products in the Outer Hebrides using the highest quality and purest Scottish seaweed combined with water from a natural spring situated on the beautiful Isle of Lewis.
