Fit for a Prince: Regal Scottish Venues

As people the world over celebrate the birth of the Prince of Cambridge, we look at some Scottish meeting and events venues with a Royal touch:



The Royal Racing Yacht Bloodhound
In July and August 2013, the 63 foot Bloodhound, a classic 1930s yacht which once belonged to Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh, will be available for charter out of Oban, a once in a life time opportunity.


During this time, she will be available for day charter groups or individuals who wish to step back in time aboard this icon of British sailing, perfect for sailing enthusiasts, company incentives or team building. Up to eight guests will enjoy sailing through the stunning scenery off Scotland’s West Coast, as well as the hospitality of the Skipper and crew who are all former HMY Britannia ‘Royal Yachtsmen’.



Scone Palace
Once the crowning place of Kings of Scots, Scone Palace occupies a unique position in the history of Scotland. A breathtakingly beautiful place of power and mystery and the rightful home of the celebrated Stone of Scone, also known as the Stone of Destiny, on the famous Moot Hill.


Today, Scone Palace is the home of the Earls of Mansfield and combines unique heritage and stunning location to provide a magnificent setting for your special event. This historic palace can be reserved exclusively for sophisticated receptions and spectacular dinners throughout the state rooms for a capacity of 20 - 300. Over 100 acres of parklands are available for outdoor events and product launches, and salmon fishing is available on the famous River Tay.



Glamis Castle
Birthplace of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother and legendary setting for Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Glamis Castle is a stunning stalwart of Scottish hospitality. Situated within easy reach of the golfing gems of ‘Carnoustie Country’ this romantic castle has entertained countless Royals and continues to be popular with corporate and incentive guests.


Thanks to its Royal heritage and beautiful setting, Glamis adds a touch of regal flare to every event, whether it is hosting an exclusive gala dinner for up 90 guests, a personalised tour or an intimate VIP lunch. And with extensive grounds, the estate is well-suited to outdoor events and teambuilding activities of all kinds.



Stirling Castle
Centrally positioned between Edinburgh and Glasgow, Stirling Castle towers over the surrounding countryside and is linked with Mary Queen of Scots, William Wallace and Robert the Bruce. The 16th century Great Hall and the Chapel Royal offer unforgettable settings for memorable events and the castle lends itself in particular to medieval and Scottish themed dinners for up to 400 people. Groups can enjoy dinner with entertainment provided by costumed performers in the role of guards and ladies in waiting, enabling guests to step back into the court life of the 1540s. Argyll’s lodging, a 17th century townhouse located in the shadows of Stirling Castle, is also perfect for small day or evening gatherings.
