Top ecotourism destinations: Scotland
Scotland is a charming close-to-home destination for those enjoying the outdoor and wanting to see spectacular nature.
Blue & Green Tomorrow is currently running a crowdfunder to ensure its survival. Please pledge.
Scotland is not only one of the world’s leaders in clean energy development with its profiteering marine and wind power sectors. It also demonstrates that it is not necessary to travel far away to see amazing landscapes and immerse yourself in nature.
From the country’s Great Trails, to the remote island landscapes and traditional distilleries, Scotland has much to offer to travellers, whether these want to explore nature, discover local traditions and culture or visit cities.
Its majestic coastline and lakes, dark skies and northern lights, as well as wildlife reserves and the Cairngorms and Loch Lomond & The Trossachs national parks are a must-see for visitors.
Tourists can also hope to spot the varied Scottish wildlife thanks to birdwatching and wildlife cruises available.
With a wide range of environmentally friendly accommodation and eco-lodges offered to responsible travellers, Scotland has successfully capitalised its green potential by providing information on places enlisted within the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS), which testifies efforts of tourism businesses such as hotels and B&B’s to save energy and protect the environment.
