Press Reviews

Below are some examples of The Lovat in the News.

On the radio

In March 2010 BBC Radio Scotland interviewed Caroline Gregory for a mid-morning business news bulletin, followed up for discussion by Peter Lederer in the midst of the Scottish Tourism Forum ‘Tourism Week’.

Caroline had also previously been interviewed by BBC Radio Scotland in November 2009 on the back of winning 2 Highlands & Islands Food & Drink Awards.

In October 2009 Moray Firth Radio interviewed Caroline Gregory in celebration of being heralded as a top 20 destination in the UK, as decided by the Good Hotel Guide.

Going green

The Lovat Loch Ness Promises a Green Stay, But No Monster Sightings
“To reduce the Lovat’s carbon footprint, the hotel uses a biomass wood chip boiler, rewards guests who travel to the hotel via public transportation with £22.50 off every three night stay, and £45.00 off for those that walk or bike. Reading over their list of environmentally-conscious initiatives, from incorporating low-voltage lamps to recycling packaging to using pencils made from old video cassettes, we’re impressed by the obsessively detail-oriented greenification of the Lovat.”

Hotel – October 2009

Highland Hotel Ahead in Race to Go Green

“The 30-bedroom Lovat Hotel at Fort Augustus is already well on the way to cutting its environmental impact, however. As part of a £600,000 refurbishment at the property by owners the Gregory family, a £30,000 woodchip boiler is being installed. The latest computerised technology is also to be introduced to control the temperature in the bedrooms and public areas, saving on unnecessary heat loss throughout the day.

Caroline Gregory, who owns the hotel with her parents David and Geraldine, said their ever-developing environmental policy also included the likes of energy-saving lamps and “eco-friendly” cleaning products. All measures, however small go some way towards making Scotland carbon neutral.”
