Why we've chosen Easter Corrie Mill, Cairngorms, Scotland

How does Easter Corrie Mill minimise its impact on the environment and contribute to a sense of place?

These self-catering cottages in the Cairngorms National Park have been awarded Gold by the GTBS, are fully insulated with rock wool, and have been fitted with low energy light fittings and A/B rated appliances. A solar heating system makes full use of the south facing site. All of the water comes from a spring high on the hill above the site, which means that no energy is used to bring the water to the cottages either. The water then goes through UV treatment once reaching the cottages. Recycling bags are provided throughout the accommodations, plus there are composting facilities for organic waste. The cleaning products used are all environmentally friendly.

Locally produced food is available in nearby village stores, and at Ballcorach Farm, and the area itself is situated on the 58,000 acre Glenlivet Estate, with over 100 miles of walking trails. The gardens at Easter Corrie are planted with local natives plants that do not need watering, and provide habitat for a number of mammal as well as bird species. There's lots of information on local wildlife, and the hosts run guided tours. The accommodation is located within the Cairngorms National Park, offering the chance to explore the landscape of the Cairngorm Mountains, as well as learn more about the sustainable development area within the Park.
