Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

We are continually increasing our range of public transport vacations for those who actively choose low-carbon transport. We use our years of expertise with the timetables of boats and trains to ensure guests can access remote areas without the need for a car.

This guided tour has been carefully-designed to allow you to explore much of Scotland, traveling from Glasgow to Fort William, Kyle of Lochlash to Inverness and Inverness to Edinburgh by train. An excursion on the Jacobite Steam train is also included.

This guided tour takes you beyond the end of the train lines, through the careful addition of short taxi transfers, and the occasional coach to provide a guided tour of the area. Travel to the Isle of Skye is by ferry.

We carefully select our business partners to ensure that they share our values of sustainable and responsible travel. For us, true sustainability means promoting and maintaining a way of life in remote and often rural locations.

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.

People

We always choose, where possible to work with locally-owned and managed businesses in order to provide an authentic experience in each destination. All transfers and tours are conducted by local people who share our values and commitment to sustainable travel. Where possible, we only use small, usually family-owned accommodation in each location.

The meals included in this tour are in these locally owned accommodations, plus a welcome dinner in Glasgow. Each menu focuses on local specialties, with ingredients coming from the local area as much as possible. We also provide the opportunity in this tour to sample a dram at a local whisky distillery on the Isle of Skye.

We directly employ a small team in Glasgow, who share our values of environmental and sustainable responsibility. Each member of our staff undertakes at least two educational visits in a year, so we can always recommend and include the best local restaurants and experiences in our vacations.
We strive to ensure that interaction with the local community is always at the heart of the experience. Our day excursion on the Isle of Skye is led by an expert, who has years of experience and knows the destination inside out.
