What’s an Incentive Trip?
An incentive trip is an employee reward in the form of an all-expenses-paid break. Many companies offer these as incentives for employees to reach certain targets. If they achieve them, the group are whisked away somewhere wonderful as a reward. This is, of course, a fantastic motivational tool in the workplace.
What’s an Incentive Gift?
Businesses looking for a Christmas bonus with a difference, or a reward for their employee of the month, might choose to give a gift, such as a luxury experience or a night away in a fabulous hotel. It’s a great way to boost morale and say thank you to hard-working staff members.
Employee Incentives and Rewards in Scotland
Scotland is one of the top travel destinations in the world! So, it’s no wonder that many businesses decide to reward their top-performing employees with a visit. And the Scottish Highlands is a very popular choice, as there are so many very special places to stay and things to do here. Here are just a few of our incentive trip and gift ideas.
King of the Castle
If you have a large group, you could hire an entire Scottish castle or country house exclusively for them. For example, Achnagairn Castle, Aldourie Castle, Blervie House and Assynt House. These incredible venues will make your guests feel like royalty, with luxury accommodation, fine dining and acres of stunning grounds to explore.
Luxury and Indulgence
For total luxury, you could send your lucky employees to a 5-star hotel where they can truly relax. Links House at Royal Dornoch, overlooking the first tee at Royal Dornoch Golf Club is an absolute must for golf fans. It even has its own private putting green. Then there’s The Torridon, a former shooting lodge for the Earl of Lovelace. This exquisite hotel offers indulgent Highland retreats and absolutely glorious Highland views.
To be sure your guests have a memorable experience, treat them to a stay in a venue that they will never forget. At Eagle Brae’s Highland village, they can unwind in the most beautiful, hand-made log cabins imaginable, surrounded by breath-taking scenery and fascinating wildlife. Or, for something a bit different, how about the Highland Club? A former Benedictine Monastery with stunning architecture now converted into luxury accommodation.
Whether you’re putting together an incentive trip itinerary or looking for a fun gift experience for a staff member, there’s no shortage of fun activities to choose from in the Highlands.
