Craggan Outdoors offers an ideal ‘away from it all’ environment in which to hold informal small-group meetings and/or activity-centred team-building events. Craggan Outdoors’ Managing Director has a background in the meetings, incentives, conference and exhibition (MICE) sector so fully appreciates the value that companies must secure from such an investment in your people or clients. Our wide range of outdoor activities means that we can work with you to select and build a programme of activities that fit with what you are looking to achieve with your group and budget.
As well as the outdoor activities, we can also offer something quite different and refreshing for the corporate team-building world in the form of art and creativity-based games and activities. These link well with the more physical activities, offering an alternative angle to help individuals and groups discover new skills and develop collaborative behaviour. See the ‘Art & Creativity’ page under our ‘Activities’ drop-down for more details.
And another initiative that’s a little different is our link with wildlife charity Whale & Dolphin Conservation’s Scottish Dolphin Centre (SDC). The WDC Scottish Dolphin Centre is based on the Moray coast at Spey Bay where Scotland’s fastest flowing river meets the sea, just under an hour from Craggan Outdoors. Set in a Scottish Wildlife Trust reserve, the area is rich in wildlife, & in particular the largest bottlenose dolphins in the world are regularly seen hunting around the mouth of the river. Seals & otters can also be seen in and around the river, & ospreys return every year between April & September.
Our link with the SDC delivers corporate team days with a difference. Spend a morning doing activities at Craggan Outdoors, & then after lunch travel to Spey Bay to enjoy land-based dolphin watching, a private guided wildlife watching wander along the Spey, a tour of the UK’s largest remaining historic ice house, & to do your bit for conservation by working as a group to clean a stretch of beach of man-made debris. As well as the £12 per person fee for your time at the SDC, Craggan Outdoors also donates 10% of the payment for activities to the SDC.
So whether it’s a one-day event such as a summer activity day for clients – our largest to date has been for over 90 people from Belgian bank Delta Lloyd – or staff Christmas party, an overnight business planning meeting, or a longer series of training or team-building days, tell us what you need and are seeking to achieve, and we’ll tailor a program specifically for your needs, helping to ensure that you deliver on your objectives and as importantly, your budget.
You’ll be in good company as our wide ranging client base includes Delta Lloyd Bank, Global Energy Group, Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, G&A Barnie Building Services, Diageo, Inverness Chamber of Commerce, Chiltern Training, Scottish Water, Interface, Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC, Highland Council, Cairngorms National Park Authority, Scottish Provincial Press, William Grant & Sons, Currys, Siemens, BAM Nuttall, Saffery Champness, NHS Highland & Sky.
