Environmental Commitment

  • We are very privileged to live in stunning Highland Perthshire. It is natural and wild and we are committed to do what we can to help maintain this for now and generations to come.
  • We recycle as much as we can. Perth and Kinross have a great recycling scheme. That means anything in your rooms like newspapers you leave behind will be appropriately disposed of in environmentally conscientious manner.
  • Our website should cover everything you need to know about our guest house and with links to interesting places to visits and things to do, you can research the area without having to ask for printed literature. We always communicate by email / phone to help reduce the use of paper.
  • We love our Victorian house and its features. As we upgrade we are always looking for ways to conserve the energy we use while keeping the character of our home intact.
  • We use low energy or LED lighting in our rooms. We try to ensure electrical appliances are not left on standby; please help us too by turning off any electrical devices you bring with you and your room lighting.
  • If your room is too warm please turn the thermostatic valve down on the radiators to reduce the heat. We would really appreciate you didn’t open windows and leave the radiators on.
  • Please help us to keep water consumption to reasonable levels.  Our drainage system is quite old so please do not flush anything other than the minimum amount of toilet paper. Please do not flush face wipes or sanitary wear as they are really bad for the environment.
  • Rather than supply individual toiletries we provide shampoo, hand wash and moisturiser in our reusable containers which helps to reduce packaging and minimise waste.
  • You are welcome to have your sheets and covers changed every three days. We prefer to only wash bedding if absolutely necessary and will normally change bedding if requested. To prevent unnecessary washing please leave your towels to be changed in the bath/shower.
  • Reducing food waste is particularly important to us. This is why we do a pre-order breakfast. It allows us to prepare the right amount of food to serve our guests with very little waste. We also try to use local suppliers and producers wherever possible to help support them and minimise transportation.
  • We have a long way to go to be completely ‘green’ but we do try our best to reduce our environmental footprint.  We hope that this policy demonstrates our commitment and that you will appreciate what we are trying to achieve and why.
