Scotland – A country of mountains, lakes and castles with a fierce warrior history stretching back 8,000 years. A history marked by battles and wars and a struggle for independence against all the odds. Now over the course of three days you will get a taste of the true Scotland. From staying in an historic hotel to doing battle with rival clans; from white water rafting in the Highlands to dining in Scotland’s most haunted vaults…….Let the Scottish Experience Begin…
Although it has been 300 years since the battles of the Highlands we will bring back those days (although fights to the death will not be featured) as the group will be divided into clans for a battle of wits, skill and strategy. You will spend one night in Edinburgh at a stylish hotel in the city centre and taking part in a clan based Monopoly Challenge which will take in many of the city’s famous sights plus an evening dinner in a haunted dungeon plus a ghost & ghouls walking tour of the hidden city (complete with actors and a touch of comedy along the way).
After the capital you will be transferred north for an hour to the foothills of the Highlands and your hotel – an historic residence originally built by the 7th Duke of Atholl as a summer home for his wife. The on-land action continues with the Clans competing in 4×4 driving over the moors, Quad Biking against the clock and Blindfold Jeep Driving. To keep the competitiveness going we will also stage a Highland Games (with a humorous twist) with the clans competing in: Tossing the Caber, Hurling the Sack, Blind Sheep Herding; The Highland Fling and of course the Tug of War. From the land it’s to the water….
Scotland boasts the finest rafting rivers in the United Kingdom. Your six mile course begins with the river being quite calm and some fantastic remote scenery. This gives the crews (one clan per raft) the chance to practice their new found rafting skills before the river quickly drops away and down through the fast charging rapids with like ‘The Zoom Flume’ and ‘Washing Machine’ will keep the rafters wide awake. Oh and let’s not forget the tour to Scotland’s smallest whiskey distillery, a clan dinner, a Ceilidh and Highland banquet. This is much more than just a taste of Scotland – it’s a feast!
