Sporting Scotland specialises in offering exciting and enjoyable outdoor events with a distinctly Scottish flavour whether its for family fun, a private party or corporate hospitality for an afternoon or over a few days.
Our location in Moray’s north eastern Highlands enables us to offer you events in a wild highland landscape setting or extraordinary venues.
Plus, we are lucky enough to be located in the heart of malt whisky country, so your event can be uniquely combined with tastings and tours of one or more famous Speyside malt whisky distilleries.
We are totally flexible in our approach so you can design your event and we will help you with logistics. All our activities can be booked individually or combined into multi-activity events so you can make the most of your visit.
Sporting Scotland is happy to organise both transport and accommodation to suit your needs.
Multi-Activity Events are popular with families, private parties and corporate groups alike. Teams rotate through a selection of activities such as clay and target shooting and archery. The events can be run competitively as team challenges or purely for enjoyment.
Depending on group size each activity takes up to an hour. Multi-Activity Events at Sporting Scotland’s spectacular hill bothy have facilities for refreshments, weather shelters and shooting stands. Sporting Scotland is positioned within 5- 20 minutes of some of Scotland’s most famous malt whisky distilleries, so tours and whisky tasting can be organised to compliment an event.
River Multi-Activity Days
River Multi-Activity Days are much in demand during the summer; often canoeing or rafting on the River Spey is combined with spectacular canyoning. Alternatively, after messing about on the river paddle boarding, rafting or canoeing, guests can combine a visit to one of the malt distilleries closeby to give an added sense of purpose their trip down the River Spey.
Highland Games Events
The Highland Games Event is often selected by our international visitors, as an introduction to a traditional, Scottish sporting event. The activities are demonstrated by highland games athletes, who then instruct in disciplines including caber tossing, weight for distance, hammer throw, tug of war, throwing the “Haggis” and barrel rolling races.
Team Building/Challenge Events
Our team building/challenge events often take a multi-discipline approach to include a selection of activities chosen from either our multi-activity, adventure activity or survival programmes.
Typically, an adventure team building event includes activities such as gorging, orienteering, and canoeing and a multi-activity event challenge programme includes clay shooting and archery.
Our mountain leader team deliver survival programmes, for a day or over 2 nights in which participants gain an insight into basic to advanced survival skills depending on the event duration. Activities include shelter building, orienteering, food sourcing and fire building. First overnight is in a bivouac with the option of a highland bothy and second overnight is a luxury stay in a country house or castle.
Our events enable people to learn new skills and put them into practice in enjoyable and exciting activities, which develop morale, communication and team spirit. In our experience, the most effective team building is centred around group challenge, where solutions are found in teamwork reliant on creativity, trust and support. Participants recognise team and leadership strengths through group assessment and evaluate their relevance to the work environment.
