It might sound like a radical way to start a retreat but watching our receptionist lock away your mobile phone – and other digital devices– is essential for making the most of the tech-free-pleasures of this new Digital Detox Break.
Checked into for for two nights, and with gadgets stored in a safe place, you'll be given a goodie-bag to ease your digital detachment. A painting set should be well-used given our location in one of the UK’s most scenic spots; Inspirational thoughts or perhaps poetry roused by a stroll around our grounds and tranquil Loch Na Dal will find a home in a pretty-as-can-be Kinloch notebook; After dark, a Sudoku book and pack of cards will aid further relaxation.
Of course, a detox isn’t complete without a spot of pampering and this new retreat includes a Botanical Back Massage – perfect for easing tech-neck and social media stoop. Conceived for comfort and relaxation, Kinloch’s individually designed rooms and suites, with extra-large beds and generous bathrooms – think roll tops with a view – are supplied with gorgeous L’Occitane toiletries for extra indulgence.
Freed from emails, social media and unable to snap-what-you-see, our team are convinced that your senses will be more available to enjoy the delights on offer, whether that be the seven-course tasting menu (we did say digital detox), the award-winning breakfasts or the simple pleasure of curling up in front of a roaring fire, with a good book from our library.
To round off the evenings you can choose a board game in the hotel’s cosy bar, while trying a whisky or two from its huge selection.
