East Lothian and Borders Fam Trip

Nine event organisers attended the two day trip, experiencing the variety of conference and exclusive use venues available in the south east. First stop was Cringletie House, a four star gold venue with 13 individually styled bedrooms.  Located just 40minutes from Edinburgh, it offers intimate surroundings for business as well as leisure. As well as admiring the fantastic countryside, organisers were able to view some of the region’s largest conference and meeting facilities Peebles Hydro Hotel and the Macdonald Cardrona Hotel & Golf Club.  The group also experienced the art of chocolate making with Cocoa Black, a Peebles based company specialising in chocolate classes and group demonstrations. Chocolate was not the only delight on the menu, a private tour with Catherine Maxwell Stuart, 21st Lady of Traquair House ended with a tasting of some of their awarding winning ales. Their final stop of the day concluded with a stay at Greywalls. It is truly a golfer’s paradise with Muirfield on its doorstep and a further 9 courses within a 5 mile radius.

The trip continued the next day with private tours around some of East Lothian’s most splendid exclusive use mansions and private houses. Archerfield  was our first stop and gave our guests an opportunity to learn more about the house and estate. With a variety of accommodation available on site, you’ll be spoilt for choice.  A tour of Gosford House  was next, with its fabulous Marble Hall and extensive grounds you can host a range of events from conferences to concerts.  Our last port of call was at Winton House. This 15th Century house was built for entertaining and can accommodate up to 16 guests in the house and a further 26 on the estate.  Our itinerary certainly highlighted some fabulous venues and hidden gems to be found in the Borders and East Lothian, as our guests can vouch:

“A great mix of properties and an extremely useful trip. We will definitely be in touch with many of the properties to discuss future trips for clients.”

“It was a really interesting and well organised two days and the venues we visited were outstanding. “
