What is Ecotourism?
Ecotourism is defined as “responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people.” (TIES, 1990)
Why are we Eco?
Our campsite is located on a unique ecological coastal habitat known as Machair. This is a listed habitat site under the EU Habitats Directive, globally found at certain locations on the west coast of Ireland & Scotland.
Seven Natura 2000 sites are also within a 5 km radius of our campsite with Natura 2000 being a European network of important ecological sites. We are the custodians of this coastal site and we see it as our our responsibility to preserve, respect and live in harmony with this special environment and to leave it in the same if not better state for future generations to enjoy.
We endeavor to bring people back to the simplicity of camping in nature, to inspire and encourage our visitors to leave with the knowledge that it is important to preserve the environment as a whole and hopefully implement some of our policies into their own lives.
