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.   

Venues range from 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.  

As well as entering into a strategic partnership with corporate team-building specialists, Team Challenge, the Trust can also offer bespoke packages, such as Bushcraft at Crathes Castle, roaring 1920s-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. 

"Guests will 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."
