Outline Brief:

For our client this was a short-haul incentive trip for a specific area of the business.  They wanted a small, luxury and discreet event for a group of high performing directors

Key Objectives:

  • Encourage relationships between high performing executives
  • Mix working groups with creative teambuilding activities
  • Create memories


This luxurious incentive trip began at the departure airport as guests were whisked from the private terminal at Stansted to their jet waiting on the tarmac.  Whilst enjoying champagne and canapés on the flight into Scotland, each guest was given a programme of the trip and an activity form to make their selections en-route.

Upon arrival at the airport, Land Rovers were driven straight to the jet to transfer the guests to their castle for the duration of their event.  To the welcomed sound and sight of bag pipes and drams, each guest was shown to their rooms where personalised gifts awaited their arrival

Activities ranged from horse-riding, sheep shearing, fly fishing and golf interspersed with afternoon tea, champagne and oysters.

Throw in some meetings in a tree house followed by building a go-kart and taking place in a go-kart derby and this really was an event that delivered on all levels.

The Result

Although the event did not take place in an obvious exotic destination, the quality of food, drink and service coupled with private jets and exclusive venue hire, meant the event was the high-end, discreet reward the client was looking for.  This event is still spoken about by the client to this day and receives many positive accolades.

The venue, the arrangements, the activities – all was absolutely fantastic and it was an experience that I will remember for a long, long time.

Just wanted to say that you absolutely surpassed all the previous excellent events with such a terrific trip last week.  I was delighted (albeit not remotely surprised) to see my fellow countrymen (and women) look after us all so royally.  Stunning setting and so much to do, it really was a super experience and I will treasure my sheep shearing ‘trophy’!

If one aim of the programme was to make people think twice when the headhunters call, then, in this case at least, it has worked.
