Here at Highfield House we are very keen to embrace an eco-friendly philosophy.
The property is heated through an Air Sourced Heat Pump both upstairs and downstairs. This has been recently installed and is a fully renewable technology that is very efficient. This ensures that the property is kept at a set temperature, and also heats the hot water. Further, as much of the electricity in Scotland is produced in a sustainable way, this adds to the eco credentials.
We also have a heat composting bin in the garden for all food waste. This produces compost much quicker than a standard compost bin. You can also put any food waste in here. The food caddy is provided in the kitchen.
We're very conscious about re-cycling here, with our bin in the kitchen showing all the items that can be re-cycled here in Highland. Glass is taken seperately to glass banks in the local area, which as the host I make sure is carried out after each stay. Items that can be re-cycled include plastics, cans, tins, paper and cardboard.
We are also very keen to use environmentally friendly products within the house. This covers the washing up liquid, toilet paper, hand soap, washing powder and softner.
