Client: Multi-generational family in Scotland

Size: 3 rooms/6 guests       Budget: £17,000+

Overview (Brief / Objective):

We were challenged with producing an experiential 4 night programme in Scotland for a surprise family trip to celebrate the 60th Birthday of the wife/mother. The brief was one night in Edinburgh, 3 nights in a private hire Castle and overall they wanted to experience the local touch. The trip was from the husband to his wife, celebrating with their family.

How did we meet the objective/brief:

In Edinburgh, the guests experienced The Balmoral Hotel; an Edinburgh icon at an unparalleled address! We provided varying private hire Castles and the winner was Mingary Castle in Argyll where the setting was extraordinarily beautiful.

We arranged a loan piper to welcome the family to their Castle and the owner was on hand which ultimately provided the ‘money can’t buy’ experience. We worked with the team to design bespoke a la carte menus paired with whisky.

When it came to activities the family experienced a unique taste of Scotland which included sunset from a Seaplane on Loch Lomond, Horse Riding on the Isle of Mull’s beach and last but certainly not least was a panoramic tour of the West Coast, down to Glasgow, in a private helicopter.


This was a birthday celebration like no other she had ever experienced, truly unforgettable.
