Macdonald Crutherland House and Spa


Macdonald Crutherland House and Spa


The Macdonald Crutherland House and Spa is a stunning four-star manor house property, situated just south of the city of Glasgow amongst 37 acres of unspoiled countryside.


Originally built in 1705 as a manor for Lady Dowager of nearby Torrance Castle, it now serves as a luxury retreat with all the facilities you would more expect from an excellent five-star property. From the elegant double AA Rosette restaurant, serving anything from relaxed Sunday lunches and Candlelit dinners to the hotel’s in-house spa, fully equipped gym and 18-metre heated indoor pool with woodland views, it is fair to say that the facilities here are superb and that is backed by exemplary service and a welcoming, unpretentious atmosphere. However, it is as much about the location as the hotel itself. With a 30 minute transfer time from Glasgow, the city quickly gives way to the stunning countryside which surrounds this hotel.


All 70 well appointed rooms are furnished to the highest of standards with large comfortable beds, luxury en-suite bathrooms and complimentary Wi-Fi. Many rooms enjoy views of the manicured gardens or woodland. Standard Rooms are all individually styled and spacious. Deluxe Rooms have a more modern and stylish interior as these have been recently refurbished. The Super Deluxe Rooms are located in the old house of the hotel and have upgraded furnishings. This hotel also offers fully accessible rooms for wheelchair users or the less mobile.

When To Go

Being a relatively small country it is surprising how much the climate can change from one region to another and add to that how unpredictable it can be, you will often experience all four seasons in one day!

Summer (June-August) – These are normally the warmest months in Scotland and due to the high latitude the summer days are long with often extended twilight. The northern islands normally enjoy about four hours more daylight at midsummer than London. Average maximum temperatures range from 15 – 17 degrees Celsius.

Autumn (September-November) – Travelling to Scotland during the autumn months is a colourful experience as the trees change to eye-catching and vibrant autumnal colours. A great time for photography and woodland walks. Average maximum temperatures range from 8 – 14 degrees Celsius

Winter (December-February) – Temperatures drop considerably to an average maximum temperatures of 5 degrees Celsius and considerably lower in the highlands. Snow falls for much of this period making it the perfect time for a winter sports break. It also the best time to experience Scotland’s designated dark sky areas and take part in astronomy.

Spring (March-May) – One of our favourite time’s to visit. Flowers are in full bloom and the wildlife is starting to stir following the cold winter months. Average maximum temperatures range from 7 – 13 degrees Celsius and you may experience a shower or two but hotel rates are generally cheaper.
