Twelve Green Actions 2019

In 2017 Lochranza  Campsite won a Gold Award for Green Tourism. Since then we have not rested on our green laurels! Here are some of our recent green actions:

  • We have moved to a 100% green energy tariff
  • We have changed 50% of our lighting to LED and will complete the remaining 50% at the end of season
  • We have installed three green cone digesters so that food waste does not have to be transported by ferry to the mainland
  • Staff members Alan and Carol have built and installed two red squirrel boxes around the campsite
  • We are holding off mowing the campsite in May to benefit the bees and wildflowers
  • We have added extra walks linked with bus times to our local information in Basecamp so that you can avoid using your vehicle
  • We now use the ecosia.org internet search engine, which uses profits to plant trees worldwide
  • We offer biodegradable rubbish bags in reception for using again and again
  • We carry reusable coffee cups on our outings
  • We continue to be volunteers for the Lochranza Loos community group which keeps the village’s public toilets open
  • We use cleaning products that are ‘green’ accredited
  • We support the Arran Trust, which protects the environment of Arran, and COAST, which protects the seas around the island.
