Visit Scotland
Quality Assurance Scheme (Wildlife Experience)
Speyside Wildlife is one of 40 wildlife businesses to be assessed under VisitScotland's pilot scheme for Wildlife Experiences achieving four star status for our day tours. Watch out for the designation throughout Scotland. We were delighted to receive our letter of confirmation from VisitScotland so thought we’d share some of it with you here. “Thank you for participating in the pilot of the new Wildlife Experience Designator within our Quality Assurance Scheme for visitor attractions. Your feedback and contribution to the introduction of this new development has been invaluable and we would like to welcome you as a new member of the Quality Assurance Grading Scheme.”

Responsible Travel Policy
Doing our best for the environment and local communities
We're all becoming increasingly aware of our impact on the environment. Consequently, we've set out to do our bit to reduce our footprint. Not only are we adhering to the "reduce, re-use, recycle" ethos, but we're also making a contribution back into the environment. Speyside Wildlife has linked up with RSPB Abernethy, which has a long term vision to extend the Caledonian Pine Forest within the Reserve. For the travel and transport included in the price of our holidays, we contribute to RSPB to help fund the Abernethy Tree Nursery, so helping to offset the effects of climate change. Each hour of air travel is offset by ¼ of a tree and each 1,000 kms of car travel is offset by ½ a tree.

Green Tourism Business Scheme
We have been awarded the Green Tourism Business Scheme Silver Award and are working towards Gold.

Acting on our Responsible Travel Policy
During a wonderful holiday in Spitsbergen, Darren, Roy and our guests were horrified to see whale meat being served in the Radisson Blu Hotel in Longyearbyen. Immediately on returning to the UK, Darren emailed Carlson Rezidor, owners of the Radisson Group, to protest and we are delighted to report that within 24 hours Carlson Rezidor had amended its global food policy and now bans whale meat from being served in all its 1,350 hotels. Great result - well done, Darren and Roy!
