TEAM Challenge Company, one of the UK’s largest independent corporate team building providers, has announced a new strategic partnership with Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel & Spa; a luxury four-star resort near Aberfoyle.

The partnership follows an impressive growth in bookings for Team Challenge Company across their Scottish portfolio, with more than 55,000 individuals attending one of the company’s events in the last 12 months.

Situated within the breathtaking scenery of The Trossachs, Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel & Spa, which has just undergone a one million pound refurbishment, has 55 bedrooms and 65 self-catering lodges.

The hotel is just 20 minutes from Stirling, 40 minutes from Glasgow and under an hour from Edinburgh, making it an attractive option for both UK and international business clients.

Corporate teams booking the hotel can make use of three meeting rooms and two break out rooms with capacity for 110 guests when rooms are set in theatre style. The hotel also has free wi-fi throughout, an indoor games hall and parking for 130 cars.

Gerard Crowley, co-director of Team Challenge Company, said: “Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel & Spa, with its stunning views of Loch Ard and fantastic facilities, is the ideal location for corporate team building, entertainment and hospitality events.

“We are looking forward to working with the staff to ensure Macdonald Forest Hills is renowned as a hub for team building and corporate entertainment.”

Jody Marshall, general manager of Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel & Spa, added: “We are very pleased to announce the launch of our joint partnership programme.

“Team Challenge Company brings energy as well as expertise, whilst Macdonald Forest Hills provides tranquil grounds, a range of meeting spaces as well as traditional highland charm.
