Highland Gathering March 2010

10th 11th March 2010


Event Organisers Walk On Water on Loch Ness !

A group of event organisers from London flew into Inverness airport for a luxurious overnight stay in one of Scotland’s newest exclusive use venues - Aldourie Castle on the shores of Loch Ness.

After a welcome lunch, the group had the opportunity to meet informally with local suppliers from across the Highlands, including Ackergill Tower, CairnGorm Mountain, Brodie Castle and Rothiemurchus Estate.

Then it was off on a guided tour of the castle, to compare who had the biggest room or the grandest four poster bed!!

After a busy afternoon networking, a relaxing evening was planned with a tutored whisky tasting from Slainte beside the open fire in the Red Drawing Room.

During dinner a surprise guest burst in. The Jacobite Highlander complete with Highland dress, sword and targe, provided everyone with an entertaining insight into the Battle of Culloden.

Next day, the group had the opportunity to literally walk on Loch Ness - in the new WOW balls, an activity provided by Boots N Paddles. It was just as much fun for those who opted to watch, as volunteers tried to master the art of walking inside a large inflatable ball - no easy feat!

Then the group headed back off to the airport and London, still with time to get back to the office to catch up with work after their Northern Adventure!

If you are interested in attending a future familiarisation visit to the Highlands of Scotland then please email Moira Unwin.
