Mull Eagle Watch is currently rated Gold by the Green Tourism Business Scheme, “Green Tourism is Sustainable Tourism” – which is defined as tourism that takes into account the needs of the environment, local residents, businesses, and visitors.
Green tourism is sustainable tourism…
Here at Mull Eagle Watch we are committed to providing a sustainable attraction, and we’re constantly trying to improve our credentials. We obviously care about our wildlife on Mull and that of course means looking after the environment too. If you’ve been to visit us this season we’d love some feedback, are we doing well? If you could think of something we can improve or add to our green ideas let us know. We’re due a visit from a green tourism inspector this year and we’re confident we’ll meet our previous standards.
