What's silver and green all over?

28 Aug, 2020

We love living and working in the Cairngorms National Park, enjoying the mountains, lochs and forests. We want to help to preserve this precious environment so we are delighted to have teamed up with Green Tourism who have helped us to achieve our Green Tourism Silver Award. 

Sustainability is important to us within our business and also our everyday lives. We seek to make minimal impact through careful management of our actions and working with both our owners and our guests. 

 

We use recycled products where possible, conserve energy and water use, ensure efficient local travel, reduce waste and recycle. We support the local economy, using services and suppliers with a similar ethos and contribute to a local charity too - £1 from every booking we receive goes to Disability Snowsport UK. 

Many of our lodges provide bedrooms and walk in showers at ground floor level.

We also have a fully accessible lodge; Alltnacriche in Carrbridge that as well as offering luxurious features such as underfloor heating, a hot tub, and a wood burner is also fully accessible for wheelchair users:

 

  • No steps

  • Wide doors (90cm)

  • Space around furniture

  • Bedroom with ceiling hoist leading from the bed to the ensuite

  • Electric bed which raises at the top and bottom with comfort mattress and optional side bars

  • Ensuite wet-room with Closomat toilet, large jacuzzi bath with low side and seat for shower

We are also very pleased that Craigard Lodge in Boat of Garten has become our first lodge to offer an electric car charging point. 

With sustainability being so close to our hearts we are delighted with the award we have received and continue to look at ways to improve how we work and what we can offer, without ever compromising on customer experience.
