Banff & Buchan MP Dr Eilidh Whiteford officially opened Banffshire’s newest spa venue on Saturday at a Georgian country house on the outskirts of Portsoy.
Durn House has been running very popular occasional “Ladies Days” with pampering treatment and posh Afternoon Tea packages for several months, and is now celebrating opening the Spa Room every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10.00am to 4.00pm, with a variety of relaxing massage and beauty treatments available. Whether or not they are enjoying the use of the Clementina Spa room, visitors are now also able enjoy the elegant period surroundings of Durn House for a lunch or afternoon tea (reservations required).
Commenting, Eilidh Whiteford MP said:
“Durn House is a wonderful venue and I am sure the spa will become a tremendous asset to the area as it attracts visitors from near and far. I congratulate owners John and Sandra Scrudis and the team and wish them the very best of success with this new venture.”
Beauty Therapist Lenise Bruce commented
Whilst Durn House has been a fixture in Portsoy since the medieval era this is the first time it has been open to the public in this way. The Clementina Spa Room used to be the Butler’s Pantry and retains its splendid original Georgian fireplace. It has been freshly and sympathetically furnished to create an environment which is comfortable and relaxing.
