But what if they looked a bit further into the corporate travel offering, beyond those surface ‘offers’ and into the spectacular looking venues offering the true executive experience, the real landscape views and the ultimate in luxury accommodation?

Aldourie Castle is one of very few venues that can meet all corporate stay needs under one roof. Forget the spas, the gyms and the pools – our corporate guests come here to really escape the office environment but still have the opportunity to throw them selves into what really matters at work and for their business; teamwork, relationship building, problem solving and sharing ideas. They leave Aldourie with a clearer perspective than when they came. Surely, any CEO would benefit from a corporate stay like that…
