Ecological and Environmental Consultancy

We are an environmental consultancy based in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. 

We specialise in providing simple, jargon-free advice and pragmatic ecological and environmental support to individuals and businesses. 


How we can help

We are here to help you with your environmental issues so you can concentrate on running your business. Whether you need a new ecological survey, an ECoW for a new or existing project or just some environmental advice, we can help. 

Ecological Surveys

Many projects require ecological surveys to be undertaken in order to gain planning permission or for construction works to proceed. At Purple Plover we have the skills and protected species licenses necessary to carry out the ecological surveys your project requires.

Environmental Advisor

An Environmental Advisor can provide your project with the expertise and advice necessary to keep your project moving and compliant with environmental law. We can assist with obtaining specialist licenses, advise on best environmental practice and offer expertise either remotely or on site as required.


With experience of undertaking both ecological and environmental clerk of works roles across a broad range of construction projects including overhead lines, underground cables and substations, you can be assured we will be able to assist you with your ECoW needs.

Remote and Lone Working

We have many years of experience working in remote and difficult locations in the highlands and islands of Scotland. The more challenging the environment, the more we want to hear from you.
