Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
This guided tour encourages travelers to take low carbon and sustainable modes of transport, with the vast majority of travel being by train throughout the vacation.

This guided tour takes you beyond the end of the train lines, through the careful addition of short journeys by mini-coach to provide a tour of the area or a transfer. These modes of transports are only added when locations cannot be accessed by train. Travel to the Isles of Mull and Iona are by ferry.

We are corporate members of the John Muir Trust, an organisation committed to protecting the Scottish Highlands and islands. We are also members of AITO, The Specialist Travel Association, and adhere to their strict code of conduct.

We predominantly market our vacations via the internet. We produce very little printed marketing material. We provide tour documentation via an app rather than printed hard copy whenever possible. We ensure any leftover marketing materials are recycled.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

We strive wherever possible to promote and maintain the way of life in remote and often rural locations throughout Scotland and our other destinations. We always prefer, where possible, to work with locally-owned and managed businesses in order to provide an authentic experience in each destination. We strive to create long-lasting relationships with local suppliers where possible to help support the local community long-term.

We carefully design our tours to ensure that interaction with the local community is always at the heart of the experience. Our walking tour of Kilmartin Glen, the guided tour of Arduiane Gardens, the guided mini-coach tours of Mull and the West Coast and the boat tour to Staffa are all run by local companies and guides, both to support the community and to ensure the experience is as authentic as possible.

We directly employ a small team in Glasgow, who share our values of environmental and sustainable responsibility.
