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.

My husband and I stayed here for our wedding anniversary, what a wonderful little retreat. Firstly the owners were very accommodating as we would be arriving later than anticipated. The location of the lodge was superb, wonderful views in a quiet location yet very close to the town and local attractions. The lodge was very well equipped, everything that was needed was there, it was was very clean and kept to a high standard. The biggest bonus was the hot tub, it was not over looked and we had great views of the surrounding landscape, a great way to spend the late evening watching the sun sink behind the mountain.

My husband and I spent new year there. Stayed three days but could easily have stayed longer! We booked the upgrade but Im sure all lodges would have been of same quality. Absolutely beautiful inside with all the tools for cooking you could need. Finished to an extremely high standard. Log fire really added that special touch as the bells came in, looking out windows at all the fireworks taking place in and around Pitlochry! The hot tub was just magical sitting under the stars. About a 10 - 15minute walk away is the Moullin Inn which is very popular, you can just get a drink or nice meal. Pitlochry itself is about half hour walk. Great base if you fancy doing bit walking or some touring. Would definitely reccommend the lodges and hope to return some day! Room Tip: Beatiful views from all lodges!
