Good to Know

Acres of unspoiled land. When you have a product as pure as ours, it’s only natural to want to protect it and we do that by caring for our hillside in lots of unexpected ways. Find out what it takes to protect our Source, what we’re doing in terms of recycling and how we are doing our bit for our native flora and fauna.

In everything Blair does, he protects the environment around our Ochil Hills catchment area, helping to maintain Highland Spring’s position as the leading ethical bottled water brand in the UK for eleven years running.

Blair is required to go to great lengths to look after our hillside - the Source of Highland Spring. That means keeping it protected from anything and everything that doesn’t grow, hop or nibble at the wild heathers and grass that covers the land.

‘There’s nothing quite like the mystique of the Ochil Hills, looking after a natural resource and preserving the magnificent landscape. It’s my dream job and it’s my ambition to be uniquely good at it.’

Raindrops keep falling

We bottle a lot of natural source spring water. But not as much as you might imagine. We extract just 3% of the total rainfall that falls on our Ochil Hills catchment area. And the rain keeps falling so while it might be bad news for sun worshippers, the good news is there’s plenty of Highland Spring to go around for years to come.
