When we opened our B&B in 2012, we knew we wanted to offer our guests a comfortable room, a fantastic breakfast, great customer service and all this from the heart of the city centre of Inverness. However, the impact our wee business might have on the environment was a concern to us. How do we offer quality, comfort and great value for money for our guests while reducing the carbon footprint of our B&B?We thought of a few ideas and implemented these immediately – buying as much food as we can from local suppliers, using LED lightbulbs wherever possible, asking…
