Sustainable Travel

I recognise the value of tourism to the rural Highlands and enjoy sharing information that encourages responsible, sustainable travel in the region. In parallel, I also recognise the difficulties ventures like the North Coast 500 have brought to small communities and fragile environments around the north. I prefer to focus my writing on the unique heritage and culture of the Highlands than follow marketing and social media trends which do little to benefit local residents.

I am wholly supportive of local businesses who rely on tourism for their income.

If you are interested in travel which respects the Highland way of life, environment, and local communities I hope you’ll find much to interest you on this site.
