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.

Just returned from our second visit to Kinnaird Woodland Lodges. We were there last year in January 2013 when it snowed and it was just perfect.We were actually scared to book again in case it didn't quite live up to the experience! We booked last minute for 2 nights and I can honestly say it was just as enjoyable! The lodges are cosy and warm and well stocked with everything you could need, the log burner is lovely to come back in to after sitting in the hot tub! The little town of Pitlochry is really nice if you want to venture out for a meal or a walk about. We wanted a complete do nothing weekend which is what we had. We even sat and watched a firework display in the hot tub! Thank you Andy and Jane for another lovely stay. We will definitely be back!

We booked the premier love cabin for 3 nights for our mini moon - simply To relax and chill out undisturbed after the stress of the wedding and then immediately followed by Xmas! And relax we did - the hot tub was lovely! Always warm and a good size - and surprisingly private! I had thought the lodges looked a little close together when we arrived but they are set out so you feel like nobody else is there with amazing views of the mountains! There was plenty of wood for the log burner to cosy by on an evening and close enough to walk into Pitlochry to take in the views and some fresh air! The cottage had everything we needed and was personalised with 'Just Married' signs which was a lovely touch - we wish we had stayed longer! We also used the on site spa uniq which was also a highly recommended experience! Will definitely return and will recommend to others xxx The Graydons, Sunderland
