Aside from a wide choice of meeting and private dining rooms, the resort also has 6 restaurants, an onsite outdoor activity centre, a nine-hole golf course and Spa. All guests have complimentary access to their 20 metre leisure pool, sauna, steam room, whirlpool bath, 38 seat cinema and cardio gym.

What does registration include?
Registration fees include 4-nights stay with breakfast, lunch and dinner plus unlimited tea and coffee (10.30am - 4pm). Besides the scientific programme, ETOX 2023 will include socials to make sure everyone in the bacterial toxins community gets chance to meet in a relaxed informal setting: evening socials will include two evening poster sessions. On the Wednesday afternoon there will be free time to either enjoy the activities available at the resort or join in an organised group excursion in the local area. A conference dinner will be held on the final evening followed by a traditional Scottish Ceilidh evening.
