Orchy Bank House was purchased in 2019 with a view to restoring the entire property and turning it back into a successful Bed & Breakfast business, having originally been set up as such in the 1960s.
Whilst totally renovating the entire property we have made every attempt to keep our business as environmentally friendly and green as possible. The house has been fully insulated, with 15 centimetres of insulation in the loft and roof spaces above the bedrooms. The external walls are well-insulated and all the doors and windows are double glazed. Our heat source is from Air Source Heat Pumps, which heat our underfloor central heating system, plus all our hot water. We recycle where possible and our green waste goes into the compost bin.
