As a small family business we have a genuine concern for our environment and seek to minimise any unnecessary impact on our natural surroundings. To achieve our high standard we continually review our practices and seek new opportunities to preserve Carry Farm for future generations.
Eco-camping at Carry Farm is a conscious decision to encourage visitors to ditch their car and make their way to Carry Farm, be it walking, cycling, kayaking, sailing or public transport, minimising the impact on the environment.
In 2007, two Hebridean ewes, Molly and Cally, were introduced to Carry Farm in an effort to maintain the bio-diversity of the land. There is now a flock of around 40 helping to conserve the rich diversity of the area.
