New Year - New You!

Welcome in 2011 as you mean to go on – in shape for your business!  For those delegates who want to keep fit, lose weight or detox as part of their New Year’s resolutions, Scotland offers an inspirational setting with a host of activities to help shed the excesses of the festive season.


This January provides no better time to visit as the entire country gets fighting fit to celebrate the year of Active Scotland.  VisitScotland’s BusinessTourism Unit (BTU) reports on the latest corporate activities available across Scotland where both business and well-being can go hand in hand.



Get Active at Alladale 


Ideal for board meetings, executive think-tanks, seminars, teambuilding exercises and conveniently situated just one hour’s drive from Inverness, Alladale Wilderness Reserve offers the unique opportunity to stay in the comfort of a private, luxurious highland lodge in the magnificent setting of one of Europe’s most spectacular wilderness reserves.


With 23,000 acres, there is no end to the energetic activities available. After a day of brainstorming, delegates can invigorate their minds with a wide range of outdoor activities, from pony trekking, fishing and stalking to clay pigeon shooting, guided 4x4 safaris, and mountain biking. For those who prefer to tee-off, the Royal Dornoch championship standard golf courses are just a short drive away. Alternatively, the Wilderness Spa offers the ideal place to unwind and enjoy a sauna, a workout in the gym or relaxing massage or beauty treatment.
