Conference and Meeting venues in SutherlandThere are 8 matches for your search
The county of Sutherland, known as Scotland’s northern wilderness, extends from 50 miles north of Inverness to the far north-west coast of the Scottish mainland providing the ideal location for undisturbed corporate retreats and strategy meetings.
This pure and peaceful region is truly inspirational. Vibrant communities rich in heritage live in this lightly populated area offering conference delegates a taste of traditional Scottish hospitality whilst the majestic open space lies waiting to be explored. The eastern fringe of the county boasts golden sandy beaches and some of the finest golf courses in the world, perfect for corporate golf events, whilst magnificent mountains and sweeping moorland with shimmering lochans provide further idyllic environments for both land and water-based teambuilding events and corporate activities. Here, conference delegates will certainly not be bored with nature’s playground reaching as far as the eye can see!
Travel to the county is surprisingly easy by road thanks to the A9 and via good rail links including overnight sleeper services from London, whilst meeting delegates flying to Scotland can easily reach Inverness or Wick airports, which receive scheduled flights from across the UK (and overseas in the case of Inverness) and journey into the region from there.
Being a remote location and a particular haven for walkers and those wanting to take advantage of outdoor pursuit options during their stay, conference venues in the county tend to come in the form of hotels and country houses, offering excellent accommodation as well as conference and banqueting facilities. Catering particularly for small delegate groups attending secluded conference retreats and for intimate weddings these venues provide exceptional service in breathtaking settings sure to impress. For instance, meeting planners seeking an unusual and yet elegant venue will appreciate the Allandale Wilderness Reserve where a luxurious Highland lodge set in a 23,000 acre reserve is the perfect base for teambuilding events and corporate activities including fly fishing, clay pigeon shooting, 4x4 safaris, golf and whisky tasting. A truly one of a kind meeting venue sure to leave delegates lost for words! Academic venues include Burghfield House and the North Highland College’s Ross House Dornoch Campus whilst Dunrobin Castle is without doubt a striking historic venue. A stress-free location providing a remarkable setting for weddings, corporate hospitality events, private conferences and meetings, this majestic historic building provides a glimpse of a bygone era. Sutherland hotels also provide outstanding conferencing facilities as, for instance, the Royal Golf Hotel provides meeting space for up to 50 delegates as well as corporate golf events, whilst the Royal Marine Hotel, Golf and Leisure is able to accommodate up to 75 delegates with a choice of conference suites available.
