Green Tourism Award plaque

Green Tourism Silver Award

In 2019, Argyll Estates and Inveraray Castle received the Green Tourism Silver Award after performing considerable work on making the estate and historic property more environmentally friendly.

We are proud to have achieved this level of award, although we recognise more can be done to further our progress in this area. It is a work in progress and we can't wait to share how we hope to improve on this area in the near future.

Environmentally Friendly Transport

Our staff all car-share to work, and we would encourage others to do the same where possible. For more information on getting here using environmentally friendly methods, see our How To Get Here page.

Supporting Local

We source local ingredients for use in our Tearoom and stock our Gift Shop with local gifts. We also opt for recycled or recyclable over single-use/unrecycled products.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

We do this by:
  • Shopping local;
  • Looking at alternatives with less packaging;
  • Considering if the product could be re-used after its initial purchase;
  • Providing recycling bins around the property;
  • Turning off lights when not in use;
  • Using paper bags in our Tearoom and Shop;
  • Using compostable takeaway containers in our Tearoom
  • And much more...
