Inspiration Destination: Scotland

 

 

CWT

 

 

Beautiful greenery, gentle rains, lakes, rivers, stones, moss, whiskey, kilts, golf, theatre, castles and, of course, the famous Loch Ness monster. These are just a few of the reasons why, time and time again, we advise our clients to visit Scotland, a magical land anchored in the collective subconscious of everyone with an unbeatable offer for meetings and events. Avant-garde and modernity are mixed with the most ancient traditions to make the experience of event attendees unparalleled. Scotland offers its visitors beautiful historic stories, and endless, beautiful landscapes. We are absolutely in love with this destination, and here are just some of the reasons we think it makes an amazing M&E destination.

By land, sea and air

Arriving in Scotland and moving across its 79,722 square kilometres is very simple. The region has five international airports - Glasgow, Prestwick, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Inverness- which connect with more than 150 international destinations on scheduled and charter flights. The roads and highways are excellent and, since there are so many islands in Scotland, ferry services are frequent.

I would walk 500 miles…

To see all of the beautiful sights, landscapes, and attractions Scotland has to offer. Urbanites and nature lovers are in luck. Scotland’s cities are full of charm, art, architecture, and world famous lochs. Scottish locks are particularly famous, and are considered a true highlight of the countryside. In particular, Loch Ness, where thousands of tourists travel every year to try their luck at catching a glimpse of Nessy.

If you’re looking for a more unique trip itinerary, you can travel to Luss, a village on the west bank of Loch Lomond. You can take a boat that runs across Lake Lomond and stops at the prestigious Hotel Cameron House pier. This five-star hotel is perfect trip incentive, as in addition to its exclusivity, it has a spa and a magnificent golf course.

Visiting a distillery is also a must to visit. Some of the best known are Deanston, Glenkinchie and Glengoyne.

Scotland also has many castles that are well worth a visit: Edinburgh Castle, Stirling Castle, Eilean Donan...and we’ll stop ourselves here because we could go on and on!

One of the lesser-known travel itinerary options of Scotland is the opportunity to see the Auroras Borealis, as the northern part of the region is in the same latitude as Stavanger in Norway and Nuvinak Island in Alaska. The best time of year to capitalize on this opportunity is in winter.

And if you want to do original teambuilding activities, CWT Meetings & Events suggest you wear the colours of your clan and give it your all at the Highland Games. It is possible to hold a Championship consisting of outdoor team activities in which participants compete in traditional Scottish competitions such as Scottish hammer throwing, log throwing, boot throwing and rope play.

If you’re interested in planning your next corporate event in Scotland, give us a call today and we will be happy to provide you with a personalised offer to enjoy this beautiful country in a unique way.
