The Zing UK locations road trip has reached our last stop in Scotland today – Aberdeen! As normal we’ll be telling you a bit about Aberdeen, scouting out its finest team building venues and its funniest place names. We’ll also be telling you about one of our most wacky corporate team building activitiesIt’s A Knockout!

Aberdeen is known as the Silver city due to the fact many of the buildings in the city are made from locally quarried grey granite, which can sparkle in the sunlight. The team building venue which we’ll be telling you a little about today is also an incredibly stunning building. This is the Macdonald Pittodrie House.

The Pittodrie House is a stunning venue set in 2,400 acres of scenic land. The 4 Star Hotel sits in the middle of its own picturesque ancient lands, and if you want to wander further afield then the beautiful Aberdeenshire countryside is right on your doorstep.

These beautiful and extensive grounds create the perfect environment for some corporate outdoor team building activities!

One of Zing’s most kooky and out-there outdoor team building activities is ‘It’s a Knockout!’ an energetic version of the much loved television show with a unique Zing twist.


Compete against your colleagues in a number of zany team building challenges ranging from giant inflatables to crazy costume relays. There’s no better way to get to know your colleagues than to see them get drenched in water or dressed as a giant chicken! (Watch this video) to get the nostalgia flowing and remind yourself how epic the TV show really was.
