In total 19 historic castles and stately homes, which for centuries have been the preserve of kings and queens, are now primed to host corporate dinners and incentives, team building events and boardroom away days.
From imposing venues such as Culzean Castle on the Ayrshire coast, to the Trust’s collection of stately homes and castles in Fife and Aberdeenshire, and right up to a modern multi-media experience at The Battle of Bannockburn centre, there is a heritage getaway in every corner of Scotland.
As well as entering into a strategic partnership with corporate teambuilding specialists, Team Challenge, the Trust can also offer bespoke packages, such as Bushcraft at Crathes Castle, roaring 1920’s style fun at Hill of Tarvit near St Andrews, and murder mystery dinners at Pollok House in Glasgow.
Rebecca Sloan, National Hospitality Manager, at the National Trust for Scotland, said: “Increasingly we are experiencing growing demand, not just for traditional meetings and dinners, but also for unique, five star experiences.
“These historic properties are not just well suited for entertaining, they were designed for it and that is what sets them apart. Guests will step behind the rope barriers and take a virtual step back in time to see firsthand national treasures, learn the fascinating stories of those who have lived in the buildings and how they came to own the amazing collections displayed within them, and talk to dedicated curators and conservators, giving a truly authentic experience.
“Our properties are so much more than museums and visitor centres, they are evolving, dynamic and valuable assets. In choosing a National Trust for Scotland venue, businesses will be playing a crucial part in supporting a leading conservation charity and helping to preserve our heritage for generations to come.”
