Macs Adventure's UK HQ Returns to Skypark
19th Jan 2024
Skypark Glasgow, one of Scotland’s premiere business destinations has announced that Macs Adventure, the specialist self-guided holiday company, is making a comeback to Skypark as the travel sector rebounds.
Macs Adventure, founded in Scotland in 2003 by Neil Lapping, offers over 500 self-guided walking and cycling holidays worldwide. With offices in Colorado in the United States and Saarbrucken in Germany, the company’s UK headquarters returns to ‘Skypark 5’ in February 2024, taking a 4,635 sq.ft. fully fitted office suite on a 5-year lease for around 100 staff members.
Macs Adventure is about breaking free from the tourist traps and exploring like a local. With no big groups or crowded tour buses, Macs partners with B&Bs and locally run hotels and suppliers, supporting small businesses and local communities.
Skypark, which is owned by a client of Federated Hermes, a leading responsible investment manager, continues to see strong appetite for high-quality, sustainable workspace from both new and existing tenants.
We look forward to an exciting new chapter at Skypark Glasgow. We need a larger workspace that inspires excellence and fosters growth whilst aligning with our sustainability goals. This move signifies the next phase of our evolution, bringing us to a new home that mirrors the energy and ambition of our fantastic team.
Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Macs Adventure, Neil Lapping
We are pleased to see Macs Adventure continue their journey with us from a new base in Skypark 5. Neil and his team of travel enthusiasts are dedicated to supporting local communities through sustainable travel, values that resonate with us at Skypark. From startups to established businesses, we can offer flexible contemporary spaces, with opportunities to connect alongside a supportive management team creating new opportunities for growth.
