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.

"Great Place" Went as a couple for a romantic get away. We were very lucky with surprisingly good weather in Feb, and we the only lodge occupied for the 3 nights we spent there. Easy enough to find and clear instructions given via email beforehand - as get settled into the lodge and we'll pop in and show you some of the features. Yvonne came to show us about the fire and talk through the hot tub use. She was very nice and helpful with tips of walks and places to visit - and very approachable, though we had no further contact (as in totally unobtrusive!) The cabin itself was very nice - good central heating system, comfortable sitting area and nice bedroom. The outside hot tub was fantastic, even in cold weather we made great use of it. We took a few drives out to surrounding areas, and went on a few walks. And plenty to visit in the area. In the evenings we would walk down to the local pub 5-10 mins or Pitlochry itself 10-15 mins. All the places we went to were very nice and welcoming, plenty of open fires etc. The walk at night was no problem at all - partly along a quiet road, and there is a torch provided in the lodge which we found useful for warning the occasional passing car. All in all we had a great time - great lodge and hot tub, great location, and plenty of things to keep you occupied, or quiet peaceful space to relax in. Chris from Glasgow
