Triangl Coco Floral Affair, Stobo Castle - Thankfifi, Scottish travel blog-5

That’s me, blissed out on a lounger, poolside at Stobo Castle…  I was lucky enough to receive an invite to Stobo Castle, the proud sponsors of Musselburgh Racecourse’s Ladies Day, so naturally I invited one of my fav ladies and off we went, roadtripping for a couple of hours to the borders where we pulled up at this beauty.  Of course Stobo’s reputation precedes but we sure were not disappointed.  First of all – it’s a castle, like a real big, old, huge, turreted castle.  Small squeals of delight when we reached the end of that looong driveway…

We settled into our room (complete with dressing room turret, for reals, another squeal from us) and stuffed ourselves full of a super homely dinner, no health food super salads here, not gonna lie… didn’t miss them.  There are these adorable little vignettes dotted around the castle, seriously, every alcove has some floral set up, baskets of blooms or crates of foliage but the room I fell hard for was the green room.  Now I know it’s probably not officially called the green room but hey, it’s painted the most serene shade of green with huge, ornate mirrors and floral cushions and the grandest of fireplaces and I could have just hung out there all day, like a lady in waiting, except in my Keds and my ripped jeans

The next morning we donned robes (which by the way we wore 90% of the time we were here…  spa, breakfast, lunch) and got set for the main event, spa time.  First of all the atrium courtyard is impressive enough with all those little lanterns in the trees and sofas for lounging but we weren’t waiting long before we were called upstairs for an hour long massage.  Well, turns out that’s a pretty awesome way to start the day.  After, we hung out in bubble chairs, pruned ourselves in the jacuzzi pools, steamed, soaked, hot tubbed again, swam to infinity and Barbara waded out into the pool with my Nikon the get ‘the shot’.  That’s what friends are for…

And then somehow we peeled ourselves away and back to reality – revived, refreshed and completely blissed out.  Oh and, just a sidenote, that’s us, full of giggles just hanging in the bathroom…  yeah, that’s the lounge… in the bathroom.  Complete with parakeets, and leopard print and velvet.  Standard.
