Cairngorm Lodges is one of those places on earth where you arrive, take a deep breath and feel extremely lucky to be alive. It is without doubt a very special place where you cannot fail to be aware of the beauty of your surroundings. We encourage you to notice things while you are here – the season, the landscape, the wildlife, even the lichen growing on the trees. We believe our spectacular forest hideaway deserves to be looked after for future guests and future generations. We are only its temporary custodians so we wish to do our best to preserve it and ask that our guests assist us with this responsibility.
Therefore our aim is to work in a sustainable way and minimise our environmental impact, but still provide luxury self catering accommodation for our guests.
We continue to self evaluate everything we do and are happy to take feedback from guests on any improvements they feel we could make to improve our carbon footprint. For your interest below are some of the things we have done to help the sustainability of our forest hideaway.
There are thousands of businesses across British working to reduce their carbon footprint through the Green Tourism Business Scheme. Businesses are awarded Bronze, Silver and Gold for their efforts to be more sustainable. Cairngorm Lodges were first awarded a Gold Green Tourism Award in 2015 and were delighted, following their grading visit in June 2017, to maintain their Gold level.
