Calculating your carbon emissions
At The Lovat, we are carbon conscious. For every hotel bedroom booked, we donate 50p to Trees for Life.
Each tree is priced at £5 and only native trees like Scots pine, birch and rowan are planted in protected areas. The trees that accrue in The Lovat Grove being planted out annually, are either at Corrimony Nature Reserve or at the Dundreggan Estate in Glen Moriston.
To find out more about how we’re helping Trees for Life, call us on 01456 490000 or read about our other eco-friendly initiatives.
The Lovat also calculates the carbon emissions from each visitor to the Loch Ness area. On arrival, guests are asked where they have come from that day and also what mode of transport they took to get to the hotel. From this information we can loosely calculate carbon emissions that can be balanced by the planting of trees.
Sourcemap is used as an efficient tool to work out the carbon emissions from each traveller. Although not 100% accurate, it is an exciting way to monitor carbon emissions from guests travelling to our beautiful Loch Ness hotel.
