Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Scottish Highlands photography tour with Niall Benvie


We encourage you to travel responsibly and to consider the following guidelines:

- When out in wild places, please keep erosion to a minimum, keep to footpaths and avoid stepping on, or picking native flora

- When near wildlife we minimise human disruption of the natural environment. We take considerable care during breeding seasons so as to not disturb wildlife.

- Take time to carry out some research about Scotland, although English is the main language spoken being able to speak a few words of Gaelic is appreciated.

- Water sources in Scotland are safe to drink and we discourage buying plastic bottled water. A metal or heavy-duty plastic bottle such as Nalgene to refill with water from a safe source is recommended to all of our guests.

- River water could also be a supply drinking water, please do not contaminate river water supplies by washing in it. Any washing products should be phosphate free

- Respect local customs religion and traditions.

- Donít take photographs of local people and places of religious significance without permission.

- Keep promises! Send copies of photos to local people if this is what you have said you will do.

- Read the labels and buy local products such as food and souvenirs so that money directly benefits the community.

- Reduce pollution and carry out all litter. Recycle wherever possible. Scotland is passionate about its wilderness and has one of the lowest levels of environmental pollution in the world and it is good to keep it this way.

Our small group ethos, sharing of transport and preferred mode of exploring locations is by foot thus reducing pollution, environmental noise and damage to what is often an especially delicate ecosystem.

We support the John Muir Trust and the National Parks of Scotland through passing on information about their policy and raising awareness of current issues and environmental sustainability. The John Muir Trust hosts volunteers from all over the world and works closely with a variety of international organisations.

Wherever possible we work electronically and promote considerate use of digital resources. We are primarily web based for all administrative communications with minimal use of office paper.

We recommend that you visit our links page where you will find comprehensive information on travel, health, environmental concerns, preparing for your vacation, local cultures and how to support local projects.


Tourism, creative arts and local crafts are present in many small towns and villages of Scotland. We support micro business by seeking out artisans and contemporary home made crafts during our stay. We always ensure that participants on our vacations get the opportunity to see and purchase local products.

Scotland is a unique part of the British Isles, full of folklore, myth and history. We love to engage our guests with discussions about Scotlandís bloodied and turbulent past!

We pride our selves on the home cooking at our accommodation, using locally sourced produce to create delicious and wholesome food. Simplicity and healthy eating is our mantra.

Our vacations are immersive and are designed for photographers by photographers. We are sensitive to the communities we visit and propose a discreet presence when taking photographs.

By the way, take time to carry out some research about Scotland, although English is the main language spoken throughout this magnificent country being able to speak a few words of Gaelic is a tongue twister and a great way to start a conversation!
