Here at CLC Duchally Country Estate our passion for protecting the environment is reflected in our activities. We have carefully preserved the natural features of our beautiful estate so we can protect the wildlife habitat and we appreciate the support of our guests in our initiatives to reduce energy use and waste and to develop our green credentials.
We have our very own recycling centre on site made available to our guests located across from our very own hen run.
We use local produce and suppliers where we can to contribute to our reputation for fine dining. In addition to using as much local produce, all tea and coffee found in our hotel rooms and lodges are Fair Trade.
In our Poly tunnel we grow our own plants from seeds to landscape our estate and every summer we plant herbs such as basil and rosemary to add to our delicious dishes in our Restaurant and Bar.
We are proud recipients of the Gold Award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS), which is the leading sustainable tourism certification scheme operating in the UK, with over 1400 members. ’Green’ Tourism is sustainable tourism that takes into account the needs of the environment, local residents, other businesses and visitors.
We have also installed two BIOMASS Wood Pellet Boilers, as part of our commitment to reduce carbon and the running cost of our Leisure Centre and Hotel. It is estimated we save 318 tonnes of C02 per year!
Protecting Small Mammals
CLC Duchally Country Estate provides over 20 boxes to protect tiny pipistrelle bats, and is part of the Perth & Kinross Red Squirrel Group – specially designed feeding boxes have helped encourage the growth of the red squirrel population over the years and these charming animals are now prolific on the estate.
