Useful stuff, mud. It can be used to make housing bricks; pies for grubby children and wrestling pits for grubby teenagers at rain-lashed music festivals.
For a rather more sophisticated way to make the most of mud, glorious mud, take up today’s Big Deal on a spa day at the four star Inchyra Hotel & Spa, a Macdonald hotel which is handily located near Stirling.
Based around the luxurious Rasul Mud Therapy Treatment, wellies will definitely not be required.
Freshly opened last year after a multi-million pound investment, the Vital Health & Wellbeing Club & Spa at Inchyra Hotel & Spa is a fantastic, state of the art health and beauty facility.
As well as the high-spec Technogym and 20 metre swimming pool, it features a rock sauna, ice shower and massage shower.
You can enjoy all the great facilities, along with a light lunch, as part of this relaxing Big Deal.
The highlight of the deal is a 30 minute Rasul Mud Therapy Treatment. The ultimate cleansing ritual, this very special treatment is designed to exfoliate and cleanse the skin.
The treatment starts by applying mineral rich muds to different parts of your body. You then relax in the aroma-infused steam, letting the magical muds detoxify the body and leaving the skin feeling beautifully soft.
If you really want to take your pamper experience to a whole new level then you can add on a back, neck and shoulder massage for a reduced charge.
This is a fantastic Big Deal which would be great as a gift; ideal for a day out with a friend or the perfect way to pamper yourself with a loved one.
