What makes a great event? In our opinion it’s largely about the venue so luxury, service and location are key. But what really transforms an ordinary event into something special is the experience. Venues that offer that essential ingredient really stand out from the crowd and one such venue that delivers an outstanding experience is this Scottish Tower.
The imposing property perches on the sea’s edge, the five floors towering over its surroundings. In the far north of Scotland you can feel on the edge of the world, and the sense of seclusion and escape is immense, but you are only a short drive from the nearby airport and a chauffeured transfer will effortlessly whisk you away for your great Scottish adventure. It’s not every day you will be greeted outside the property by the whole team, offering a wee dram of whisky, and it really sets the tone for your stay.
This dramatic property is a place with a history, and the building is full of character and atmosphere with many tales to tell. Hear chilling tales of the ghosts that some say haunt the Tower, and learn about the owners and the clans who fought over the property including the fate of the lady who was abducted and imprisoned in the Tower. A candle-lit banquet is a perfect setting for such intriguing tales.
However an experience is made up of many things and, being in Scotland, it will come as no surprise that the whole Scottish element comes into its own. Costume up in some tartan, kilts for men and sashes for the ladies, and get into the swing of things with pipers and a ceilidh band for a bit of highland dancing. Enjoy a feast with oysters, haggis, beef and seasonal local produce washed down with fine wines. Other evenings can be spent at the local on-site pub or perhaps a sing-a-long round a bonfire on the beach toasting marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate, or maybe a lobster and chips supper is more your thing. There’s plenty of choice to ring the changes with delicious options.
There’s lots of space for work or play, whatever the reason for your event, but in all cases take some time out to enjoy the wealth of activities on offer here which will really add to the experience. Split the group into teams for some bespoke highland games with a Tug o War, Wellie Throwing and Toss the Caber. Race beach buggies along the sands, learn how to shoot, try your hand at archery or hang on tight for an exhilarating RIB ride across the bay looking for puffins, seals and dolphins. These are all fantastic fun and will leave unforgettable memories of your stay.
So really it’s quite easy to create a great event, with a bit of help. Whether it’s the little things, such as the line of wellington boots and Barbours ready for your guests, or the bigger things such as the highland games or the candle-lit banquet in the Great Hall, it all boils down to the experiences. As you can see this Tower offers the ultimate in tailor-made experiences, combined of course with the essentials such as luxurious bedrooms, great staff and all the facilities you would expect. So head for Scotland and your next great event!
