Cairngorms, Highlands Scotland
We are inspired by our beautiful surroundings, deep in the Scottish Highlands. Each of our bedrooms showcase panoramic views of the spectacular landscape, while the verdant countryside is home to a wide variety of wildlife, from Golden Eagle and Osprey to Red Deer Stag and Pine Martin, as well as an abundance of wild flowers, plants and trees.
RCH IDEA was created to work in tandem with our parent company’s diversity initiative, TTC (The Travel Corporation) IDEA. IDEA is far more than just a buzzword, it is an ongoing project led by our Co-Chairs: Scott Clinton, David Gordon, Tara Shankla, and Trevor Baker-O’Haire. Our eight existing identity circles – including Women, Pride, Culture, Age, and Neurodiverse – meet monthly, both separately and together, to discuss challenges in the workplace and bring forward actionable change.
Our first IDEA Festival took place between 20th - 24th September 2021. The IDEA Festival week acted as a celebration of diversity, including panel discussions, guest speakers and inspirational talks hosted by members of the IDEA committee. This week aimed to grow the IDEA identity circles and get more employees involved in this initiative, in turn providing more support and improved networking opportunities for members of diverse groups, and a greater overall understanding of the challenges faced by diverse employees in addition to the barriers that they have already overcome.
