Congratulations to Glen Nevis and Glen Affric Youth Hostel for achieving Gold status in the Green Tourism Business Scheme!

All of the hard work from both teams paid off to see a rise from silver to gold, with the youth hostel's showing many examples of "best practice". Highlights from Glen Nevis inlcude:

  • An abundance of relevant green information relating to walks (and calories burnt on walks verses the breakfast), wildlife and attractions in the area.
  • The youth hostel is heated with an efficient boiler while double glazing, fluorescent lighting and low flow taps help with energy saving.
  • Nice touches outside such as a small wildlife area and a bug 'hostel'.
