Murrayshall Country Estate in Scone, Perthshire, has announced a £30 million masterplan to diversify the estate, which includes new spa and leisure facilities.

Plans, which have been submitted to Perth and Kinross Council, also include luxury holiday lodges. Estate owners, Stellar Murrayshall LLP, hope to extend the four-star hotel and also to include solar panel sites.

The spa element of the plans will total a £15 million investment.

Investment for diversification into spa and leisure

Gary Silcock, general manager for Murrayshall Country Estate, says: “This is an exciting time as we progress with our long-term aspirations for the Estate, which will ultimately help grow and sustain the business for years to come.

“We remain confident that the £30 million investment for the diversification of Murrayshall will have a positive effect on the local economy.”

If all goes according to schedule, it is hoped the leisure club and spa will open in 2025.
