The huge conservatory swimming pool at Skibo Castle in Scotland has been the subject of a makeover.

Home to the exclusive Carnegie Club, the landmark to the west of Dornoch in Sutherland is a member’s club as opposed to a hotel, so reserving a place there is very difficult, according to reporter Zoe Strimpel.

She explained that the “newly revamped” conservatory swimming pool is one of several facilities available at the castle for guests to enjoy; there is also an acclaimed golf course, horse-riding and incredible dining options. However, for anyone choosing conservatory blinds for their own indoor pool, it is the grand glass structure that may interest most.

Ms Strimpel remarked: “Leaving was a wrench because a return cannot be guaranteed. But if you have the chance to experience the Donovan Club at Skibo Castle, it’s a very worthwhile kind of wrench.”

Skibo Castle’s conservatory swimming pool provides the height of luxury for guests, but indoor swimming pools need not always be housed in glass structures. Scottish lottery winners Colin and Christine Weir have followed up their big win by drawing up “lavish” plans for their home including a swimming pool and separate conservatory, according to

The pair, who became Britain’s biggest EuroMillions winners when they won £161 million, want their Ayrshire house to have a more “traditional” conservatory along with a full-size swimming pool, with an anonymous source saying the plans look “very luxurious”.
