Why stay here: Let’s kick off this list of the best lodges with hot tubs in Scotland with The Tractor Shed. If you’re looking to soak up amazing views not only from your hot tub but from your living space too, then this is the place for you.

Easily one of the most modern lodges with hot tubs in Scotland, this stay is ideal for those who don’t want to skimp on luxury.

Why stay here: This might be one of my favourite lodges with hot tubs in Scotland for that living space alone. I mean, just look at it! ‘An Cala’ translates to ‘The Haven’ in Gaelic and that perfectly sums up what this cottage is. With two cosy log fires, a hot tub, an outdoor shower, a big private deck, and the most amazing living space imaginable, An Cala truly is a ‘get away from it all’ getaway. Plus, it’s even surrounded by trees to make you feel even more secluded!
What guests say: “This place is amazing! Imagine relaxing in the hot tub, no one can see you, the sound of the river running by with glorious views of the babbling brook and autumnal colours. It was as good as it sounds! The log burner and massive glass wall to a wonderful view made the communal eating and relaxing room absolutely fantastic.”
Price per night: From £316 for 10 people
Location: Carrbridge, Scottish Highlands
Why stay here: I mean, you’ve seen the photo above. Need I say anymore? If it’s romance that you’re after, then look no further than Smithy Croft. With an outdoor hot tub surrounded by candles, lanterns and fairy lights, it doesn’t get much more romantic than this. Outside you’ll also find a large decking area with a BBQ, pizza oven, chill out space, and Smuggler’s Cove! However, this expansive holiday home is more than just what’s outside. Full of charm and character, the interior is exactly what you’d expect from a quintessential Highlands escape. Take a look for yourself!
What guests say: “Smithy Croft was the absolute perfect getaway and cannot recommend highly enough. Everything about the place was terrific; great space, lots of private areas for downtime, something for all ages (we ranged from 3 to 44 with some in-between, including 2 furry friends lol) and luxurious touches to be found all around. Would love to return sometime. Thanks, Cat; an amazing host with an amazing property.”

Price per night: From £105 for 4 people
Location: Brodie, Morayshire
Why stay here: This modern eco-cabin is the perfect setting for a relaxing weekend break. Boasting a contemporary, open-plan living space with beautiful oak floors, Culbin Edge is bright, spacious and welcoming. However, the best thing about this cabin is its location! With beaches and mountains on its doorstep, it has something to suit every taste. You can reach the sea in a couple of hours by following a beautiful wooded trail. However, if you’d rather just relax, sit back in the wood-fired cedar hot tub instead, which you can use an unlimited number of times throughout your trip.
What guests say: “Loved soaking in the wood-fired hot tub, very relaxing and organic. The smell of woodsmoke under the spring blossom tree was beautiful. The inside/outside space is beautiful and so private. The deckchair on the front terrace for the morning sun and glorious sunset from the side terrace, then off to the woods for the firepit and wine sat on a log under the trees and stars.”
Price per night: From £203 for 4 people
Location: Killin, Stirlingshire
Why stay here: Situated on the shores of the River Lochay, this unique grass roof circular cottage has one of the best decking areas imaginable.

12. Cloud Lodge
Price per night: From £172 for 2 people
Location: Breakish, Isle of Skye
Why stay here: It’s safe to say that you’ll be on cloud nine at Cloud Lodge. Simple yet stylish, it is easily one of my favourite unusual romantic weekend breaks in the UK. The best thing about this lodge is the breathtaking views it offers across the sea and islands that you can wake up to without even getting out of bed. It’s safe to say that if you want amazing views on your trip to Scotland, then you absolutely need to stay on the magical Isle of Skye.
What guests say: “Waking up to the beautiful views at Cloud Lodge is as breathtaking as the pictures seem! It is such a lovely retreat for those looking for a quiet getaway on Skye. We loved having a hot tub to come back to after a long day of hiking in the cold. The interior is modern, stylish, and clean. Couldn’t ask for a better stay!”
Price per night: From £220 for 4 people
Location: Aberfeldy, Perth and Kinross
Why stay here: For one of the more unique lodges with hot tubs in Scotland, why not book a stay in The Tabernacle? Lovingly rebuilt from the Mary of Mercy Church in the market town of Aberfeldy, you’d have a hard time finding a more characterful property than this. From the floor to ceiling altar windows and the mezzanine sleeping area to the magnificent double-ended roll top cast iron bath and private hot tub, there is so much to discover here. And if that wasn’t enough, make sure you check out the uninterrupted views across the Tay Valley from the hot tub. Those views alone make this one of the best lodges with hot tubs in Scotland!
What guests say: “The Tabernacle is a wonderfully unique place to get away from everything and everyone for a few days. The accommodation was spotless and has everything you need. The views are amazing, particularly from the hot tub. Although it’s a fairly big building between the central heating and the log burner it can be very cosy which is ideal as we went at the end of November when it was fairly cold. The hosts were very helpful and accommodating.”
14. Fyne Cabin
Price per night: From £108 for 4 people
Location: Taynuilt, Argyll and Bute
Why stay here: Situated on the western shore of Loch Awe with marvellous panoramic views over the water, you can’t beat a lochside location when in Scotland, and that’s exactly what you get at Fyne Cabin.

Inside, the cabin has everything you could need for a comfortable stay, including a real log fire that will help you enjoy even the rainy, colder days!
What guests say: “The location of the cabin is exceptional if you want outdoor adventure or a romantic and relaxing hideaway.

15. Woodcock Lodge
Price per night: From £219 for 2 people
Location: Argyll, Argyll and Bute
Why stay here: Woodcock Lodge definitely wins the award for having one of the most romantic hot tubs in Scotland. Just look at those lights strung about the place! Nestled in a beautiful scenic glen on the owner’s 500-acre estate, there are so many amazing walks on your doorstep at this lodge. However, if you just want to stay in and relax, who could blame you? With luxurious underfloor heating, a rolltop copper bath and a curved screen HD TV, you could easily just spend all your time inside. However, I’d recommend heading out to the patio, just to enjoy the pizza oven, fire pit and BBQ!
What guests say: “This was such a great stay, the cabin felt so luxurious but also had that rustic element I yearned for. The bath was so beautiful, the goose feather pillows and bedding were to die for. The bbq hut was an incredible set up. The little wood burner stove was perfect and we even had a game of chess (I lost). I would recommend this to all my friends!”
16. Knoydart House
Price per night: From £150 for 2 people
Location: Mallaig, Scottish Highlands
Why stay here: For one of the best hot tub views in Scotland, book a stay at Knoydart House.

With a romantic super king bed with a ciel de lit canopy to cuddle up under, romance really is at the heart of this stay. And if you want to make your break extra special, why not order some food or a massage therapist to your room?
What guests say: “My only regret is that I couldn’t have it for longer! The studio room itself is beautifully compact and finished to a very high standard. The hot tub is the most amazing one I’ve ever been in, super warm and crystal clear and that takes you to the best bit… the views! The views just blew me away from everywhere but to be able to sit in the hot tub and take them in – just wow!””
Price per night: From £130 for 2 people
Location: Ceres, Fife
Why stay here: If that hot tub view didn’t take your fancy, how about the one from Heartland Cottage? I’m not sure what appeals to me more: the outdoor hot tub or the cosy interior. One thing that’s for sure, though, is that there are bucketloads of amazing scenery to enjoy here! You can even enjoy the views and fresh air upstairs too. Walk upstairs and you’ll be rewarded with an amazing balcony with sea views. Yep, that’s right, water babies will love Heartland as it’s only 3.5 miles to the sea!
What guests say: “Such a great find for any couple looking to escape for a few days. The cabin is so cosy and secluded but well connected if you want to explore the surrounding area – we drove to St Andrews, Elie and Anstruther. Also amazing if you have a dog as there’s great space outside the cabin for them to run around in. We loved sitting outside in front of the fire at night under the stars, plus the view from the cabin is gorgeous.”

Outside each lodge, you’ll find a large wraparound balcony from which to soak up the views, as well as garden furniture and a hot tub!

Inside the story is much the same with the lodges boasting modern interiors and all the mod-cons you’d expect.

The kitchen has everything that you could ask for, coffee machine, blender, grill and a wide range of crockery and utensils. The lodge is spacious and the beds are comfortable. Hubby loved the shower and being able to play the music throughout the lodge was amazing. Of course, the hot tub can’t go without a mention, this was checked daily by the owner and was kept to a wonderful temperature all day.”

What guests say: “We have come here for the last 3 years as we just love the place so much. The location on the Loch is breathtaking. We’ve found so many walks and places to explore, right on our doorstep. Even seeing deer, red squirrel, eagles and lots of birds. Not to mention the ducks that come for a daily visit. Not only is the cabin in a truly stunning location, but it has everything you need for a self-catering stay.”
21. Big Husky Lodge
Price per night: From £700 for 25 people

With enough entertaining space and bedrooms to host a whopping 25 people, the appropriately-named Big Husky Lodge is one of the best lodges with hot tubs in Scotland for seriously big groups of family or friends.

23. Gorgeous Cottage
Price per night: From £240 for 8 people
Location: Ballater, Aberdeenshire
Why stay here: If clean, stylish and modern interiors are what you are after, then you will absolutely love this cottage. Set in a secluded woodland location by the river Gairn, the surroundings are stunning but the inside is something special too. I can’t get enough of the wood-burning stove, the white rolltop bath, and all the other immaculate touches that make this cottage an interior lover’s dream. The open-plan living space is ideal for entertaining big groups of people and the Skargaards wood-burning hot tub is another real treat.
What guests say: “We had a lovely stay at Steves beautiful Gairncliffe cottage. The house was the perfect setting for a lovely chilled couple of family days away.

Location: Kincraig, Aviemore
Why stay here: Another of the most modern lodges with hot tubs in Scotland, The Neuk is a truly amazing space for a large group of people.

Thank you so much to Ben for creating a magical atmosphere and for letting the world share your amazing house.”
Price per night: From £130 for 2 people
Location: Lochinver, Assynt
Why stay here: If you love the look of Waterloo Lodge but are after more of an intimate getaway for two, The Hideaway sits on the same site. And most importantly, it benefits from those same oh-so-beautiful views across the bay of Lochinver and the famous Assynt mountain range! The generous sized balcony that leads out from the main living area is the real treat here. From the hot tub to the BBQ, I couldn’t think of a much better place to soak up the views. And once you’re done, you can crawl into your sumptuous super king-size bed. Perfect day? I think so.
What guests say: “Position of the lodge was stunning with views to Suilven and Lochinver/Assynt landscape. Wonderful big shower and bathroom. Fantastic hot tub with views to mountains and Milky Way/stars above. Great kitchen area for cooking. Very comfy big double bed. Lovely terrace overlooking stunning scenery. Very close to Caribbean-esque beaches: Achmelvich, Clachtoll. The weather was amazing so made the most of the white sandy beaches and clear turquoise waters! A little piece of paradise.”

The inside was so thoughtfully decorated and well equipped and we LOVED using the aga, the trough bath, the pizza oven and the wood-fired hot tub. It was a really special weekend.

Intimate and cosy, they’ve managed to pack a lot into a small space, without the lodge ever feeling too claustrophobic. The beautifully-secluded wooden-clad, off-grid lodge is set on a 12-acre smallholding, amongst some of Scotland’s best scenery. You can enjoy Galloway’s famous dark skies from the comfort of your wood-fired hot tub, or from the open plan living, dining and kitchen area.

But if the weather’s not on your side, don’t worry, because the inside as just as gorgeous as the outside.
What guests say: “The cabin was spotlessly clean. The scenery was just amazing – the photos don’t do the view justice. It was so peaceful and beautiful. What better way to relax than watching the sunset over the hills in a hot tub! So many positives. A lovely break.”
