The great Scottish interactive team building experience
Highland games were traditionally held by Scottish Clan Chiefs to test their Men’s strengths. Observing their performance, the Chief would decide who was best suited for different tasks. The fastest runner would become the messenger, and the strongest men would become the warriors.
Today, Highland Games are still enjoyed by Athletes who train to compete for Scottish and international prizes.
We utilise the challenges of Highland games for Corporate, Conference, and Incentives Teambuilding events. We don’t expect anyone to have any prior experience, so these events are designed for complete beginners.
We work with Scottish Highland Games Athletes to show participants how to perform the different activities. We frequently work with two Champions, Pete Hart and Bruce Robb. Pete clinched the British Heavyweight win for 56lb weight over a bar at the Lochcarron Games in 2013. 6’6, 20-stone Bruce Robb is a champion of the Strathmore, Aberdeen, and North Berwick Games.
