The team at KPMG were glad to find out that they were spending their day outside in the crisp winter weather with Team Challenge Company at the MacDonald Cardrona Hotel in Peebles. After countless presentations and speeches they were excited to get into the action and all came prepared with their wooly hats, winter jackets and of course a trusty pair of wellies!

First off everyone was split into their teams and were put in some dashing coloured bibs, just in case we lost them over the course of the day. All of our teams were given the opportunity to try out a variety of fun and exciting activities such as Archery, Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting and Blind in Tent! To keep the day flowing there were plenty of tasks in their individual booklets, however perhaps the best activity of the day which was to get a few photos with some particularly funny necessities!

To round off a fantastic day, there was our Mini Highland Games giving the opportunity to try haggis roll, weekly toss and everyone's favourite, the caber toss! Only then were they finally allowed to retreat inside for some well needed warmth to the last activity, Bridge Build. There was plenty of well planned ideas which led to some valuable points being gained! In the end the points came in useful for our winning team who snuck in and stole the trophy! Well done Team 1! The day could not have been as big of a success without the fantastic organisation put in from Stuart and Scott! We sincerely hoped everyone enjoyed their day and we look forward to next year!

A very unique day of team building for everyone. My activity - Blind in tent, was a fantastic way to beat the cold, everyone scrambling in to the 2 man tent (built successfully or not) haha. A great Bridge Build finale as well. Some very unusual but practical designs! An excellent day in the Scottish Borders.

Team Building at it's finest! The team from KPMG were definitely up for some fun throughout the afternoon. My favourite part of the day and perhaps one of the best things I've ever seen from a team was when the white team hijacked a golf buggy to finish up the day! Absolutely hilarious!

Thank you and your team for making Friday’s Team Building Treasure Hunt at Peebles a most enjoyable afternoon out. The feedback after the event was fantastic even if we did cut it short due to the sudden change in temperature. The activities and general arrangement worked very well and the final bridge build event inside brought out the competitive edge in most participants. Thanks again for organising a fantastic afternoon and I am sure our paths will cross again sometime in the future.



What a fabulous afternoon of Team Building this was, with a fun-filled and rewarding Treasure Hunt around the golf course of Macdonald Cardrona Hotel. There were so many highlights throughout the day, including Green Team getting lost for a little while, the incredible Bridge Build design from the Red Team, and of course the perfect Autumn sunshine to make for a beautiful day. It was an absolute pleasure working with Scott and Stuart in designing and delivering this Team Building event, we really hope the entire team had a brilliant day, and we look forward to the rematch!
