Comprising the majestic capital city of Edinburgh, an extremely popular destination for conferences, meetings and events, the county of Lothian incorporates three areas, each with it’s own attributes. The county as a whole combines the regions of West, Mid and East Lothian. 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. Whether opting for the bustle of the city or the peace of rural landscapes, the Lothians have it all offering everything from sporting venues and modern conference centres to historic venues, stately homes and country house hotels. Conference and banqueting facilities throughout the region are exemplary and being a popular meeting destination, service standards are maintained to the highest level.
