Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust

Protecting Scotland’s Whales and Dolphins

Off the shore of Scotland’s western coast are the Hebrides, a spectacular and unique archipelago of islands that contain a huge diversity of habitats from sheltered sea lochs to wild and unforgiving deep seas. These waters support an abundance of life, including internationally-protected species of cetaceans such as harbor porpoises, minke whales, bottlenose dolphins, and killer whales, all of which are threatened by a range of environmental, climatic, and human pressures.


We are proud to support the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust (HWDT) in its efforts to achieve the long-term conservation of Scotland’s whale, dolphin, and porpoise populations. Through donations from our guests, we support species monitoring and research, which is used to inform crucial protection measures, citizen science, and education and awareness programs.


By engaging remote coastal communities in the Hebrides—as well as travelers aboard Lord of the Glens—HWDT is cultivating an ethos of marine stewardship and ensuring that these special dolphin, porpoise, and whale species not only survive, but thrive, for years to come.
