A question that is being frequently asked and one that no measurements are adequately provided for – is how big and deep are the baths? It seems that modern houses and hotels in general provide showers in many different formats and if a bath is available it is of a plastic type and not generous in size. A lot of the self-catering country houses and castles in Scotland do include fabulous old baths of all shapes and sizes.
This Arts and Crafts Town House in Aberfeldy, sleeps up to 10 adults, has bathrooms with the original enamel baths from the period of the house dating back to 1899, which are over six foot in length and surrounded in wood panelling. However, one of the best examples of a superb bathroom can be found at this Luxury Castle Apartment, in Angus. Within the en-suite bathroom to the large four-poster bedroom, in the centre of the room is a large enamel stand alone bath, along with a separate shower cabinet, and from the windows there are stunning views over the estate. To paraphrase E.M. Forster – “A bathroom with a view”!
