Eagle Brae is proud to be one of very few tourism destinations in the world which continually strives to offer carbon neutral holiday accommodation.
We know that in today’s world of increasing industrial development and population growth it is essential people do their best to reduce the negative impact they have on the environment every day. This is especially true of holidays, which can be viewed as non-essential pastimes. Because of this, many people seek holiday accommodation which will give them the peace of mind of knowing they’re enjoyment isn’t to the detriment of the world around them.
Genuine sustainability is about lifestyle, so we urge our guests to help Eagle Brae with its carbon neutral ambitions by exercising restraint in the use of water, electricity and vehicles during their stay, and recycling all rubbish where possible. Eagle Brae aims to be a leading member of the Green Tourism Business Scheme.
Eagle Brae is totally self-sufficient for all its utility and energy needs. It has a micro-hydro scheme which provides domestic electricity and hot water, biomass wood-pellet burners provide under floor heating, and all water is abstracted from a natural underground source.
