 As it prepares to stage two of the world’s greatest sporting events in 2014, the Commonwealth Games and the Ryder Cup, Scotland’s reputation as a leading active travel destination is stronger than ever.
 
With its world class adventure resources and dramatic landscapes, it's no surprise that businesses are choosing Scotland year on year to host active and challenging corporate incentive experiences, team building events and company awaydays.  These experiences foster teamwork through encouraging, enthusing and respecting people as well as developing their own potential.
 
There’s no better time than 2011 for the business traveller to make the most of Scotland’s active pursuits as the entire country gets fighting fit and celebrates the Year of Active Scotland.  We're embracing the great outdoors in Scotland with a host of events and activities across the length and breadth of the country.  From outdoor active pursuits such as kayaking, cycling, quad biking and walking, to indoor adventure activities such as indoor climbing and aerial assault courses, there's something for everyone to enjoy.  Scotland boasts more than 200 islands, 
as well as stunning mountains, lochs and glens.  A wide range of operators are on hand to  organise unique corporate activities where both business and healthy-living can go hand in hand while enjoying Scotland’s wild beauty. 
 
On the Year of Active Scotland, Robin McKelvie, a full time travel writer, broadcaster and photographer, will be travelling around Scotland participating in activities which can be organised for your next incentive or teambuilding activity.
