An Eriska Spa Day with Rasul Mud Experience and Afternoon Tea

Posted by Elizabeth Todd on Jul 3, 2015 8:00:49 PM

Eriska_Mud_Rasul_RoomThe Stables Spa, Isle of Eriska welcomes you to your wellbeing island…

We harvest ingredients from the flourishing island and capture the nutrients of the sea to nourish your body, mind and soul. Delivering unique Scottish experiences, Stables Spa provides you with a setting to refresh, regenerate and release your inner wellbeing.

The Stables Spa, set in the former stables building and accessed by a path through the Spa Garden, offers five treatment Rooms, three to connect you to the natural land, plants and wood, and two connecting you to the cleansing sea and tranquil shores that surrounds you.

Refreshing treatments have been created to infuse the mind allowing your body to be lifted with every cleansing breath, combined with natural products, from treatment to taste to harmonise you with the island.

You receive two hours access to our facilities. 

The Stable’s Spa facilities exploits the natural light, hosting a traditional swimming pool over-looking the spa gardens and also encompasses a spa pool, sauna and steam room which is aromatically infused. Throughout the facilities and changing rooms small glimpses of the original stables can be found. Our changing facilities offer lockers, showers and towels.

A Rasul Mud Chamber Experience.

During our Mud Rasul Treatment, once comfortable with your private chamber, you will apply the finest mud to your face and body before steam gently begins to fill the room. Relaxing on the heated loungers and letting the mud and steam gently detox and de-stress you, beneath a twinkling starry sky you will feel a sense of calm and wellbeing. The ritual finishes with a soft, warn tropical rain shower that removes the mud leaving your skin incredibly soft and smooth. It's a great treatment for priming your body for a massage which will then be more effective, as the therapist can get deep into the warmed muscle more easily. It also leaves your skin feeling very soft and "plumped", as you deeply cleanse your skin and absorb moisturising minerals. The treatment lasts 30minutes.

Typical Montgomerie Easter Sunday

Posted by Beppo Buchanan-Smith on Apr 5, 2015 6:19:12 PM

Whilst I do not exactly remember our early years at Eriska but all is slowly becoming clear. We used to close in early September and basically hibernate for the first 3 months then work on the house for the season ahead and open in time for Easter. If Easter was late then we had a bit longer and if Easter was early then we simply had to limp through after the busy weekend until the May Bank Holiday. As Easter weekend was normally our first busy period with a new team on board My brother and I were farmed off to vist my Grandmother in Oban- although we were sold teh concept as a "holiday" whilst my parents benefitted from being left to cocentrate on Eriska without the distractions of us . I remember this part vividly as this always entailed an early morning walk up to an open air church service on top of Pulpit Hill and then back to my Grandmothers for breakfast.

However I cannot be sure whether we were "farmed out" for a day, weekend or even a week but it must have been a constricted period as whilst the hotel was opening and we had many new faces in the team, all learning the ropes, we also had many regular visitors who often helped keep the team newcomers on the straight and narrow- great for consistency but not ideal if you were trying to develop new procedures!  Anyway among the regular faces were a wonderful couple from Leamington Spa who always insysed come rain or shine on having afternoon tea on the front steps, whilst this was on an occasion a very short lived and well wrapped up event on most it bwas a day like today with sunshine, daffodills and little wind.

Isle-of-Eriska-afternoon-tea-2

It would therefore be remiss of me at this time not to stop and reflect on the Montgomeries who would have enjoyed tea on the libaray steps today. No coat, gloves or umbrella required but maybe sunglasses! Incidentally among the many things I learnt from them  was the ability to multiply by adding up - regrettably this art and skill has been lost by me over the years but it was useful when I was at school and maybe now I will investigate it again as it might help get my budgets under control for the stables extension!
