Eco Tourism and Environment
Highland Holiday Cottages near Aviemore are the first in Strathspey and Badenoch for self catering accommodation to attain Gold Eco-rating in the Green Business Tourism Awards.
Ecotourism is about connecting conservation, communities, and sustainable travel. Along with our continued upgrade of existing facilities, Highland Holiday Cottages agree that in today’s current climate, “improved environmental performance” equates to “enhanced business development”. Highland Holiday Cottages are therefore committed to the implementation of proactive measures to help protect and sustain the local environment.
