Loch Ness Hub and Travel has achieved Gold Green Tourism Award Status, which it says builds on its commitment to sustainability and responsible tourism.

The Gold Green Tourism Award recognises Loch Ness Hub and Travel’s efforts in its net zero ambitions, implementing eco-friendly practices, reducing its carbon footprint, and contributing positively to the local environment and community.

“We are thrilled to receive the GOLD Green Tourism Award, which reflects our ongoing dedication to promoting sustainable tourism in the area,” said Russell Fraser, managing director at Loch Ness Hub and Travel.

“This recognition validates our efforts to operate in harmony with the natural surroundings while providing memorable experiences for our visitors. Currently, we are the only Visitor Information Centre with GOLD Green Tourism award, except for Visit Scotland Sites, which is great credit to our partners, community, board of directors and staff.”

In addition to its environmental initiatives, Loch Ness Hub and Travel remains committed to ethical employment practices by being accredited as a Real Living Wage employer.

“We believe that sustainable tourism goes hand in hand with ethical employment practices,” said, Carolyn Wilson, chairperson of Loch Ness Hub Ltd.

“By ensuring that our employees receive a fair wage, we not only contribute to their livelihoods but also foster a positive work environment that enhances the overall visitor experience, whilst simultaneously building a community that is a better place to live, work and visit.”

Loch Ness Hub and Travel invites visitors from around the world to experience the beauty of Glen Urquhart, Loch Ness and surrounding areas while supporting sustainable tourism and ethical business practices.
