What we did

Guests departed Edinburgh city centre in coaches on the morning of the event and were greeted by Maximillion staff on arrival at the venue.

The meeting session kicked off straight after refreshments and continued until a buffet lunch was served in the restaurant.

The weather could not have been more ideal for the afternoon activity which began with a safety briefing before guests were transported in 4×4 vehicles up to the activity field.

From there the group were split into 4 teams which rotated around 4 high adrenaline activities including; blind 4×4 off road driving, laser clays, archery and a quad biking circuit. At the end of the event scores and prizes were presented to the top scoring team before guests were transported back to the 4* hotel in Peebles where the group spent the night.

The day was concluded with a BBQ on the sports terrace with fun games and a few beers.

Who took part

20 of the key and influential members of management took part.


What they said

We had an absolutely brilliant day, from the moment we arrived Maximillion dealt with all our needs. The events were great and everyone had tremendous fun, Maximillion event arrange for the sun to be shinning all day!  The hotel was lovely and their staff very professional.  I have recommended Maximillion and The Cardrona Hotel to my colleagues within other parts of the business and I don’t doubt there will be more bookings from Heineken!
