Despite its beauty, the Highlands and Islands is one of the least affluent regions of Scotland, and the Outer Hebrides especially so. By bringing the benefits of tourism to this area and using local services and produce, we help to support local businesses, create employment and contribute to the overall sustainable development of the region.
These holidays, like all of our trips, operate on a strict 'leave no trace' policy. This concept will be explained by our guide at the start of the trip and practised throughout. All of our Scotland-based trips start at railway stations to encourage travel by rail to Scotland.
All of our trips start and finish at or close to railway stations, as this makes it much easier for our clients to travel to the Highlands by rail. We encourage travel by train or bus in all of our joining instructions that we send to clients, and also have a section on our website which includes links to train timetables and booking services to make it easier for clients to choose to travel by rail.
You can trust responsibletravel.com reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
