Here at Thurston Manor we care about the environment and sustainable tourism. We continuously review what we do and make improvements that help lower our impact on nature, our surroundings and local culture. We encourage all of our guests to recycle where possible and recycling facilities are available on park. In addition we support conservation projects managed by recognised charities, such as the Scottish Wildlife Trust. As part of this initiative, we ask all of our holiday guests to make a donation of £1.00 per booking which goes directly towards their projects.
Scottish Wildlife Trust
The Scottish Wildlife Trust has been championing nature conservation for almost 50 years. From maintaining a network of over 120 reserves and campaigning at a local and national level for greater protection for wildlife to the groundbreaking reintroduction of beavers in Mid-Argyll, their activities aim to protect Scotland's wildlife for the future. You can find out more by visiting their website http://scottishwildlifetrust.org.uk/
Woodhall Dean Nature Reserve
Woodhall Dean is a long and narrow nature reserve close to Thurston Manor which encompasses three burns joining to form Woodhall Burn. It is dominated by sessille oak and is one of the few surviving remnants of the oak forests that covered much of Scotland 5,000 years ago. Woodhall Dean is designated an SSSI for its native oak woodland and is home to a variety of woodland flowers and birds.
