West Lothian is characterised by tranquil countryside, rolling hills and historic venues whilst East Lothian offers beautiful beaches, golf courses, woodlands and a spectacular coastline, making both of these locations ideal for outdoor pursuit teambuilding events and corporate activities.


With Midlothian situated a mere 10 mile drive from the capital whilst still boasting hills, woodlands and stunning heritage sites alongside access to the other Lothians, it is easy to see why meeting planners frequently choose to host corporate events here.

Locations such as Livingston and Edinburgh provide a diverse range of conference venues able to meet any event organiser’s needs.
