Perthshire's beautiful; we love it here. But
it's not just about the views. Our business wouldn't even exist
without the natural spring that started it all (we've used our own
water supply since 1868). Not forgetting the fresh air and open
spaces our guests keep coming back for.
So the area around us isn't just a backdrop; it's one of the
best assets we've got. That's why we're so keen to look after
Our environmental policy is clear: we understand that our
business has an impact on the environment, so we commit to
thoughtfully and responsibly reducing that impact.
We regularly review everything that comes into the business and
the levels of waste it creates. We also strive to prevent pollution
by sourcing our supplies locally as well as recycling glass, paper,
cardboard and other materials.
In terms of energy consumption, our challenge is to deliver
modern comforts and hotel standards in a Victorian building. It's
an on-going responsibility, and we continue to investigate
alternative sources of heating, hot water and power.
Whether it's keeping our staff up-to-date on the latest
legislation or asking our guests to do their bit, every effort we
make to reduce our environmental impact is part of our commitment
to the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS), through
which we are working towards Gold accreditation.
