Treasure Hunts in Edinburgh - The Sherlock Adventure

We recently took to the rolling hills and delightful cobbled streets of Edinburgh for our increasingly popular themed team building treasure hunt - The Sherlock Adventure! Team Building Treasure Hunts in Edinburgh - Sherlock AdventureAt first glance perhaps a strange location for a Sherlock themed event, but look a little closer and you'll see that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Homles' creator, was not only born in Edinburgh but attended the world famous university here too!

So what better place (other than perhaps Baker Street in London) for our teams to race through the streets as recently employed consulting detectives!

Teams had to meet a series of Holmsian characters, from notorious criminal Shinwell Johnson to 'Young' Molly Scarlet, the Gin Palace Wench, gathering clues in an attempt to thwart the latest dastardly plans of the Napoleon of crime himself - Professor Moriarty!

Themed treasure hunts are fantastic for injecting some healthy competition and a lot of fun into your team building. Whether your team are local to the area or just visiting, we work hard to uncover the most fascinating and compelling details to concoct challenges for all abilities.

Give us a call on 0845 006 0606 to discuss how a themed treasure hunt could help to bring your team together!

Why We Love It

Nowadays, many historical listed buildings are forced to build separate conference centres in the grounds, as the original rooms just aren't suitable - but we love the fact that at Edinburgh Castle, this isn't the case. Our favourite private function space, The Queen Anne Building, is situated in the heart of the castle and your colleagues will be blown away by the breathtaking views and grandiose atmosphere. Being here is inspiring to say the least, so your team will be flowing with constructive ideas on how to push your company forward, and everyone will be talking about it for months to come.

"Edinburgh is one of my favourite cities - it's the perfect balance between historical and cosmopolitan. The Castle is an amazing venue, and as one of the most haunted places in the world, it's the ideal setting for a Murder Mystery" - Mike Horner, CCC Event Manager
