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 it.
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.
