Our Green Values

We are committed to 'green' tourism and are very proud to hold the 'Gold Standard' in the Visit Scotland's Green Tourism Business Scheme, one of only two in Perthshire. Businesses opting to join Green Tourism are assessed by a qualified grading advisor against a rigorous set of criteria, covering a range of areas, like energy and water efficiency, waste management, biodiversity, commitment to sustainability and much more.

Our passion is for locally sourced produce, wherever possible. Where this isn't possible, we do ensure it is ethically sourced. We also use as much organic or free range ingredients as we can.

Fruit and vegetables are mostly from local organic farms. We also grow our own herbs and vegetables as much as possible, in the limited space we have available.

All meat and eggs used by us are free range and the eggs are from our own chickens (you can see them from the window). Local food hero Ian Spink provides the Arbroath Smokies for the breakfast menu. Ramseys of Carluke, also a local food hero, supplies bacon and sausage from 'happy' pigs. Jim Fairlie supplies lamb from his farm at Logie Almond. Beef from Hugh Griersons Aberdeen Angus herd, Venison is from Fletchers of Auchtermuchty.

More and more people are becoming aware of green issues and most people are looking to reduce the impact of their day to day lives on the planet. Here at Burnbank B&B, we try to implement simple, practical ideas to reduce our carbon footprint and help the environment, without compromising on comfort or quality.

For example, we harvest rainwater to water our indoor plants, garden and greenhouse; we have installed additional insulation so that the property requires less heating; and the en-suites all have water saving devices installed. All the shower and soap products provided to guests, as well as all of our cleaning materials, are 'eco-friendly'.

We were delighted to be invited to become a Cittaslow Perth supporter. Cittaslow is a network of over 100 towns in 15 countries across the world that have adopted the same set of goals and principles to improve their quality of life.

These values include protecting the environment, buying local products, eating healthy, locally produced food, taking an active role in the community, supporting the cultural heritage of the area, and taking the time to welcome visitors to the area.

We are delighted to welcome walkers and cyclists (we are on route one of the international cycle ways) and have safe storage space for bikes. Ask to see our folder of suggested walks and rides. Bikes can be hired in the village; we can arrange that for you. We also encourage guests to use local transport and can supply timetable information on request, as well as lots of suggestions for days out.

If you have an electric car, we recently had fitted an overnight charging point. It is free for the use of our guests.
