Environmental Commitment


Protecting our Natural Environment in Every Way We Can

We are proud of where we live. Our cultural heritage is deeply rooted in the Scottish landscape: the lochs, the munros, and everything in between. We have a shared responsibility to look after our planet and we rigorously apply this philosophy – from picking up litter, to recycling, to saving energy. For our resort conservation team, it also means encouraging local wildlife, increasing feeding opportunities, and protecting their natural environments. Learn more about our sustainable initiatives and spaces below. Our efforts have earned us a ‘Silver’ award from Green Tourism and are working hard to achieve the coveted Gold award.

The Green Team

We have a great deal of committed staff members in place throughout Clan Cameron. From a dedicated Resort Conservation Manager and their team devising and steering green policies to be in line with our sustainable development goals, to the sustainability champions who are the driving force of these policies across all departments. This team is helping to make a real reduction to our energy usage, waste output, and emissions.

Bee Conservation

Worryingly, bees are in decline worldwide. And we’re doing all we can to improve life for bees and butterflies across the resort. We don’t use insecticides, leave room for grasses and wildflowers to grow, and have various hives on our 400 acres, run by the Helensburgh and District Beekeepers Association. If you do come across the hives, please keep your distance.

The Bee Garden, near the bridge on The Carrick, contains bee-friendly plants that flower between March and September when you’ll see lots of bees, insects, and butterflies. To create your own bee-friendly garden, Green Tourism has a list of 10 bee-friendly gardening tips for beginners.

The Enchanted Wood

Once an overgrown area of woodland between the Carrick’s 17th tee and 18th green, this quiet space is now a beautiful wildlife haven. Relax on the benches and let wee ones discover the Hobbit house, the mini-beast hotel, and the play den.

The Untidy Garden

Explore a wildflower meadow project developed on previously unused land at The Carrick that provides food and shelter to birds, bees, and insects. Left to grow wild, you’ll see bursts of colours here right from spring to autumn.
