Responsible tourism

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

Environment
Since 2003, we have been committed to helping our clients to ‘see Scotland differently’, and so on this trip, we take great pride in showcasing the natural beauty and rich heritage of each of these magical islands – Skye, the Uists, Harris and Lewis.

One of the key highlights of this trip is the travel by ferry. The use of the ferry to cover these distances both gives employment to local ferry companies, but is also a more sustainable way to travel than by flying to the Outer Hebrides instead.

Although this is a self-drive holiday, we recommend low-carbon transport wherever possible. Alongside the ferry travel between islands, we will suggest plenty of attractions – such as the Standing Stones of Callanish on Lewis or the Old Man of Storr on Skye – that can be explored on foot, alongside many local walks that will be listed in our bespoke Robert’s Recommendations, given to each customer before their trip.

We are corporate members of the John Muir Trust, an organisation that is committed to protecting the wild land of Scotland’s highlands and islands.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

For us, true sustainability means promoting and helping to maintain a way of life in traditional and rural communities, where the economic benefit that comes from tourism can make a genuine difference. Each of the accommodations included on this trip is locally-run, rather than being owned by large corporate organisations, and are based in the heart of local communities. Visitors will have ample opportunity to interact with local people and learn of the traditions of island life during their trip as a result. We build close, long-lasting relationships with all of our business partners, based on mutual trust and total commitment to customer satisfaction.

We will never send our customers anywhere that we haven’t visited ourselves, and strive to encourage people to go off the beaten track to visit rural communities and local businesses wherever possible. To this end, each of our holiday packs include ‘Robert’s Recommendations’, our specific tips on places to visit, places to eat and places to shop locally, all of which have been researched by us.
