This summer the much anticipated Disney Pixar film Brave will hit theatres across the globe.  Set in the Scottish Highlands in the 10th Century it looks like a fantastic piece of cinema that show's Scottish heritage and culture in a warm, humorous way. It also presents a fantastic opportunity for a Brave-themed corporate incentive program in Scotland!

Here's just some of the things we could incorporate in a Brave program for your next corporate incentive group:

Archery

The ancient art of archery is brought to life courageous Merida displays her incredible skills throughout the film. You too can try your hand at archery in the Scottish Highlands! Although you won’t be competiting for the hand of a princess, you might be competing for the honour of winning….or even a bottle of Scoland’s finest whisky!
