Leisure & fitness

 Please note we are presently relocating our Gym equipment to another area and apologise for any inconvenience.
Lack of motivation is usually what people cite as their reason not to visit their local leisure facility. Who would blame them?  Who could get all fired up over running on the spot staring at a blank wall or a TV or sitting in an over-chlorinated Jacuzzi at the side of a noisy, splashy pool. Motivation would never be a problem at The LODGE on the Loch Leisure and Fitness suite.  The state-of-the-art equipment in the brand spanking new, airy, glass fronted gym overlooks Aboyne Loch and beyond to the mountains and there is literally nothing between the outdoor hot tub and the loch.  Sinking into it almost feels like sinking into the loch … but hotter and with bubbles. The entire suite, a major part of the extended build, also offers every conceivable facility to help bring even the most stressed and restless visitor kicking and screaming to a point of total relaxation and wellness with the world. Borrowing from Eastern influences, the new Hammam room (Arabic for ‘Silent Doctor’) boasts a steam bath, a 4.5ft deep plunge pool, a Japanese deep soak tub and the amazing Monsoon shower.  There are three Finnish saunas, an infra-red sauna, a Korean healing bed and a private relaxation suite a combination of which is the perfect way to end an invigorating workout in the gym or a series of treatments at the reflect spa. It would come as no surprise if the busy resident Osprey flew in one day for a spot of R&R: not rainbow trout and roach but rest and repose!
