Responsible Travel

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

Planet

All laundry and personal hygiene products that we use in the guest accommodation have been carefully chosen to adhere to ecological and sustainable standards. laundry is kept to a minimum and guests are encouraged to re-use towels throughout the week making use of the energy efficient hydro electric storage heaters and good old wind power and sunshine (line drying!).

All waste wherever possible is recycled, including kitchen waste which is either composted or fed to the wildlife.

We are committed to phasing out single use plastic and have invested in environmentally friendly alternatives such as beeswax covers and multiple use containers recycled from original use. We even wash and re-use packaging over and over in order to keep it out of landfill.

We are in an area of outstanding natural beauty and lead through example when showing it off and guiding our guests through the excursions in the local area. We have many guides and books about the local history and the special diversity of the flora and fauna in the area and we encourage our guests to take a look at these during their stay.

For our guests who choose the fully catered option, we buy Scottish grown food wherever possible and organic and grass fed wherever possible. We use small local suppliers of dairy, fish and meat from independent traders and farmers markets when available.

This holiday makes the very best use of the opportunities available to appreciate the local area on foot, by bicycle and by kayak. All other transport if needed is by local bus or train and the only time we will use a car is for the local transfers. By its very design, this holiday demonstrates just how magical it is to explore this incredible area without an engine.

People

We encourage our guests to patronise local services such as the pubs, restaurants, tea rooms and other local businesses such as the village museum and the local towns. We direct our guests to the small/ independent local businesses who we consider to offer the best in regional produce and locally made wares.

We also try to encourage our guests to visit the local towns during their free time and the markets when available for browsing locally produced goods and encourage them to buy products from the local area. If there are any special community events happening during our guest's stay then we will most certainly make them aware of these and facilitate them attending. We feel that it is very important that our guests appreciate the unique flora and fauna and historical significance of this area and also make them aware of the local schemes like the beaver re-introduction. We have materials for them to read and free time is allocated should they wish for example to visit the museum or the Heart of Argyll Wildlife Trust.

Every visitor here is ensured a warm welcome from the community.
