From environmentally friendly accommodation to green tourist attractions, learn how to enjoy the country's landscape responsibly.
The Green Tourism Business Scheme which was originally developed in partnership VisitScotland, celebrates those businesses that have worked hard to reduce their environmental impact. This could be through the use of low-energy lighting, including local produce on menus or promoting cycle and walking routes in the area.
Look out for the distinctive green logo of the business scheme award winners, who promote environmentally-friendly practices across Scotland.
Leave the car behind for some, or even all of your break so that you can sit back and admire the country's most beautiful regions by train and bus. Better still, get out in the fresh air and cross the country on foot or by bike.
Travel by train between Fort William and Mallaig and cross the magnificent Glenfinnan Viaduct, which appears in the Harry Potter films, or feel the wind rushing past as you cycle along some of Scotland's National Cycling Routes.
