With the growing awareness of green initiatives and wide-spread public recognition of climate change, the popularity of eco-friendly holiday accommodation has grown into an important part of many people’s holiday package.
The rise of ‘eco-tourism’ even saw VisitScotland produce an official guide on ‘how to become an eco-tourist’ last year. The guide stating it was designed to help tourists ‘discover the actions and considerations you can take to help support and protect Scotland's landscapes, cultural landmarks and communities, while still getting the most out of your holiday.’
So, while government guidelines currently restrict overnight stays, if you’re looking for the perfect holiday getaway later in the year, why not check out this list of 12 Scottish holiday cottages that will allow you to enjoy the wonder of Scotland, whilst also ensuring you protect its natural beauty.
All of these cottages are available to rent via WhichCottages.com.
