Murrayshall Country Estate in Scone, Perthshire, has launched a plethora of new onsite
pursuits, a new wellness weekend, as spa treatments in their newly refurbished Gate
The hotel has bought 10 bikes including a range of mountain and e-bikes so that guests can
hire them by the hour, half day or day to roam around the 365-acre estate and beyond with
carefully created maps showing walking and cycling routes. It also includes 2 exercise bikes
as well as a treadmill so that gym enthusiasts can exercise within their guest rooms.
Several garden games are now available on the lawns including spike ball, bean bag games,
a giant Jenga and chess set, swingball and a badminton set. For those looking to relax, a
hammock swings between a couple of trees or guests can head out for a pre-prepared picnic
where the hotel will provide a hamper, rug and a selection of snacks and drinks. The hotel
has already teamed up with Willowgate Activity Centre where guests can enjoy axe
throwing and laser clay shooting at the back of the 400-year-old manor house.
Launched today, guests will be offered a selection of spa treatments using luxury
Scottish organic seaweed products from Ishga. Treatments will include facials and massages at the newly refurbished gatehouse cottage, located at the beginning of the drive. There is
a lounge area for relaxing and the opportunity to have drinks served while waiting for
a treatment. The treatments will also be open to non-residents.
A Fitness and Wellbeing Weekend has also been organised on 9th and 10th September in
collaboration with Club 300 Perth. Guests will enjoy a 5km trail run through the Murrayshall
estate, a mountain bike tour, team games, yoga as well as nutritious meals and drinks
throughout their 2-day stay.
Leisure Manager Colin Fraser has a background in gymnasiums and personal training and
has previously worked in Qatar launching gyms and health clubs. He said about the new
offering, “We’re always looking for new ideas that will attract and inspire our guests.
With our stunning location in the heart of Perthshire, we have the space and views to
match. It’s great to offer guests a variety of different options from pursuits to wellbeing,
that they can enjoy whilst they are staying with us.”

This is the start of a new chapter for the hotel as they work towards building their
£ 30 million masterplan to diversify the estate which will include a stunning spa, leisure
facilities and lodges. Plans have already been submitted to Perth and Kinross Council and it
is expected to generate substantial investment to the local economy, whilst supporting
hundreds of jobs in the area.
