WITH a cold winter forecast, an Aviemore home centre has seen a sharp increase in demand for its party hot tubs.
Highland Home Centre, which is based in Aviemore, installs hot tubs in houses and gardens across Scotland, and has recently experienced an increase in requests for hot tub rentals.
Brian O’Donnell, managing director of Highland Home Centre, said: “As people look towards Christmas and New Year parties and getaways, we have had a lot of calls from people looking to rent hot tubs.
“A five person hot tub can be delivered and set up within a few hours – and cost from as little as £350 to hire for a week. We all work hard for our time off, so we try to make the most of holidays and weekends when we get them. Sinking into a hot tub is warm, relaxing and sociable – just what you need on a break.
“Previously hot tubs were seen as a symbol of an extravagant lifestyle, but increasingly people see them as a relatively inexpensive way to enjoy their garden all year round. The festive season is the perfect time for families and groups of people to get together – but sitting in front of the TV can become tiresome. A hot tub is a fun addition to every party – it can be enjoyed day or night and by young and old.
As well as a place to relax, hot tubs are also believed to have health benefits, said Highland Home Centre manager, Kim Clark.
“Arthritis sufferers and those with sports injuries report great relief from using a hot tub – but even a humble sore back from shovelling snow or wrapping-up Christmas presents will benefit from a warm soak.”
