Sustainable Scotland

Immerse Yourself in Scotland's Enchanting Beauty: A Journey for the Soul, Crafted Just for You

Example Itinenary

Day One: Edinburgh/Glasgow to Fort William via Loch Lomond and Glencoe

We'll start your day with a morning departure from either Edinburgh or Glasgow.

Our first stop takes you to the majestic Loch Lomond, nestled within the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. Established in 2002, this park is dedicated to conservation, sustainable tourism, and community collaboration. While at Loch Lomond, you'll have the chance to explore its stunning landscapes, perhaps taking a leisurely stroll along the shores.

While at Loch Lomond, you'll have the opportunity to support local businesses and communities. Purchasing locally made products benefits the local economy and minimises your carbon footprint. For those interested, we can offer volunteering opportunities with local conservation organisations at Loch Lomond to participate in activities such as trail maintenance and wildlife monitoring.

As we continue our journey, we'll drive through the awe-inspiring Glencoe. This area is renowned for its dramatic and rugged scenery. Here we will discuss the rewilding efforts in Glencoe, aimed at restoring the landscape's ecological richness and contributing to eco-tourism growth in Scotland. The National Trust for Scotland actively works to improve Glencoe's habitats, focusing on regenerating native woodlands and enhancing biodiversity. This discussion highlights the importance of conservation efforts in preserving Scotland's natural heritage.

You'll conclude your day in Fort William, a town with an array of eco-friendly accommodation options. Our team will be delighted to provide recommendations based on your preferences.

Day Two: Fort William to Eigg via Mallaig

This morning, we depart for Mallaig, a charming coastal town. In Mallaig, you'll experience a scenic ferry journey to the Isle of Eigg. The journey offers breathtaking coastal views, setting the stage for your exploration of the island.

Eigg is known for its stunning natural beauty, with a diverse landscape that includes pristine sandy beaches, rugged hills, and lush green valleys.

One of Eigg's unique aspects is its community ownership. The Isle of Eigg Heritage Trust, formed by the residents, has enabled sustainable development and conservation efforts on the island, making it a fascinating example of responsible tourism. Eigg generates most of its electricity from renewable sources, offering a glimpse into sustainable island living.

There is no public transport on the island, but its compact size makes it easy to explore on foot. You can choose to walk or, if preferred, we can arrange a bike rental or taxi service for your convenience.

One of the island's most iconic features is the striking Sgurr, a prominent pitchstone ridge that dominates the skyline. Hiking the dramatic Sgurr of Eigg is a memorable adventure for those seeking stunning panoramic views.

You can choose to spend the night on the island, allowing for further exploration, or return to Mallaig for overnight accommodation.

Day Three: Fort William

Today is dedicated to exploring Fort William and its surroundings. This town is an excellent spot for wildlife enthusiasts, offering opportunities to spot local fauna in their natural habitat. You might come across red deer, pine martens, and a variety of bird species.

The stunning Glen Nevis, a glen situated at the foot of Ben Nevis, offers a wealth of wildlife viewing opportunities. The glen's mix of woodlands and open moorland creates an ideal habitat for red deer and pine martens. Consider taking a leisurely stroll along the glen's trails while keeping an eye out for these beautiful creatures.

The lochs and rivers around Fort William provide important feeding grounds for a variety of waterbirds. Take a relaxed walk along the shores of Loch Leven or Loch Eil and enjoy the serene surroundings while observing the local birdlife.

The town's surrounding woodlands and forests are ideal habitats for pine martens. You can embark on guided night walks, led by local experts, to increase your chances of encountering these elusive creatures.

Spend the night in Fort William.

Day Four: Blair Athol Distillery and Return to Edinburgh/Glasgow

No tour of Scotland is complete without a taste of its famous whisky. On this day, you'll visit Blair Athol Distillery, renowned for its sustainable practices and for having received a prestigious gold certification from Green Tourism.

Your tour of this distillery will not only introduce you to the world of Scotch whisky but also demonstrate how environmental sustainability can be integrated into traditional industries.

After the distillery tour, you'll have time to explore the charming village of Blair Athol, known for its history and picturesque surroundings.

At the end of the day, we will ensure your safe return to your accommodation in either Edinburgh or Glasgow, completing your Scottish journey.

How do you thank someone for making all your dreams come true? George & Lindsay's Highland Tours did exactly that! Walked ancient castle battlements, admired waterfalls, drank whiskey, and enjoyed wonderful seafood. George was a great guide, rich in history and fun. Already planning our next trip with Lindsay's Highland Tours for next year!

Absolutely MAGIC!!!

Steven and his Dad, George, were very friendly and accommodating. George was very knowledgeable as was Steven. I would highly recommend Lindsays Highland tours to anyone who wants to leave the driving to someone else and enjoy the beauty of the Highlands.


Special Day

Incredibly informative and funny; felt like a day out with a long lost uncle. If I come back to Scotland, I'll definitely be using Lindsay's Highland Tours. Even took a photo of George enjoying the scenery.
