Our Green Philosophy

BOOK NOW

Kinnaird is a really special place. Clean air, an abundance of wildlife, great views, wonderful solitary walks and sense of peace. Preserving this environment is really important to us.

Over the last year we have  undertaken a number of initiatives to reduce the impact our lodges have on the environment.

  1. Biomass energy. The biggest investment has been the installation of a highly advanced district heating system powered by a biomass pellet boiler. This installation immediately reduced our carbon footprint by 60% by replacing electricity as the primary energy source to sustainable wood pellet.The boiler is linked to each property through sensors which allow highly intelligent control of all heating and hot water settings. Installed at a cost of £130k this was no mean undertaking. However it has provided a much more comfortanble and effective source of  heat and hot water to our customers
  2. Water reduction. Installation of water saving measures including the repacement of all wcs (as part of a refurbishment programme) to lower capacity dual flush, the replacement of baths to walk in showers and the use of water butts for gardening
  3. Electricity usage reduction: We have undertaken a programme of the complete replacement  of bulbs - to low energy types by the end of next year
  4. Promoting a natural environment. We have started to plant out more of our grounds with  variety of wildflower meadow grass and shrubbery areas to reduce the amount grass that requires to be constantly cut. This saves on carbon footptrint impact and promotes the development of flora and fauna. The grass that we do cut is composted and put back into the land each year.
  5. We have motion sensor lighting outside each property and within the grounds meaning that the light only goes on when it is needed, thus reducing wasting enegy.
  6. We have a structured re-cycling programme at Kinnaird and make it easy for you to get involved.  We supply named recycling bags in each property so that you can do your bit for te environment too.  Glass, plastic, cardboard, paper and cans are sent for recylcing and we dispose of broken electrical goods at our local Council Recycling Centre.

"Wonderful relaxing few days" I booked a cabin at Kinnaird Woodland lodges for 3 days over the 2015 Christmas period, and it was everything that I had hoped for. The cabin itself was really clean and cosy. Whilst initially being smaller than I'd imagined, it was actually perfect for myself and my wife. We were greeted with a wonderfully warm welcome by Yvonne who showed us around the place and explained how to use the key features (hot tub and log fire) and then largely left us to it. The location of the cabins gives a really nice view over Pitlochry and the surrounding hills, and the layout of the cabins means that you never really notice any other guests apart from walking to and from the car. I also booked my wife into the spa that is onsite for a back massage, and having this so close, and then being able to jump straight into the hot tub certainly added to the relaxing feel.

My husband and I have just returned from a 4 night stay celebrating our 5th anniversary. This was our second visit and was faultless! Beautiful surroundings, lovely cabin which has everything you could need. Hot tub is brilliant, onlooking the gorgeous views. We are about to book again for next year. J Milne
