STOBO Castle has been named the 'Global Spa of the Year'.

The Peeblesshire venue scooped the top gong at the recent World Luxury Spa Awards.

The ceremony was due to take place in the summer, but the coronavirus pandemic meant it had to take place online.

And bosses at Stobo are delighted to receive the award.

Managing director Elliot Winyard said: "We are extremely honoured, humbled and delighted to receive the overall Global Spa of the Year 2020 award.

"Our family would like to thank all of the team here at Stobo Castle for their hard work and commitment, our much-loved and valued guests and everyone else who has supported us and contributed to the success of this family business.

"I would also like to take this opportunity to send our best wishes to all businesses within the spa industry during these difficult times."
