Case studies

“Actually involving Haggis travellers in a project which means they can get up close and personal to these beautiful ecosystems will bring this story to life, resulting in a positive permanent addition to Scotland and assisting Trees for Life in its fantastic work.”

Graeme Ward, Managing Director of Haggis Adventures

Haggis Adventures is one of Scotland's leading tour companies for independent travellers, having carried over 100,000 customers since 1993 on its distinctive fleet of yellow midi-coaches. The company offers a wide range of trips, from one to seven-day tours of the Highlands and Islands.

Haggis Adventures has established a 'Stay Wild' initiative in partnership with Trees for Life, enabling tour guests to benefit from hands-on conservation experiences. Selected Haggis Adventures tours stop at our Dundreggan Conservation Estate near Loch Ness.  In addition to a guided walk and talk about the Caledonian Forest, each visit includes a tree planting opportunity.

"CSR continues to grow in importance for our clients, visitors and staff. Everyone at the SECC is incredibly proud of the massive contribution our venue has made to Trees for Life."
