We are delighted to now be a part of the Flogas Carbon Offsetting Initiative. With a need for a reliable fuel to power kitchens, central heating and hot water systems, we are dependent on an efficient, and uninterrupted energy supply to our off-grid location. This is exactly what we have received from Flogas, during a longstanding relationship that stretches back almost a decade.
“A round-the-clock supply of energy is the lifeblood of any hotel, but its importance is even more prominent when you’re located off the national gas grid like we are.
“Flogas understands that, and we have complete trust in the service they provide. For example, to make sure we never run out of gas, Flogas has installed a telemetry system that monitors the LPG levels in our storage tanks, and automatically orders more to ensure we always have the gas we need to keep our hotel running smoothly.
“But our relationship with them goes much further than just filling up our gas tanks. They’re extremely fair, professional, and easy to work with, and we know that if we ever needed anything, they’re easily contactable and will find solutions quickly. You can’t under-estimate how important that is to us.”

Flogas has also provided a vital solution to Barony Castle’s contribution to global sustainability.
As part of our ongoing renewable and environmental programme, we reviewed our operational efficiencies and processes to reduce energy use, and introduced sustainability initiatives to reduce unavoidable emissions. These included ‘room service on request only’, low energy smart lighting, locally sourced meat and produce, and newly installed electric vehicle charging points.
However, one of the hotel’s largest environmental contributions is in offsetting all of its LPG carbon emissions, which it does through the Flogas Carbon Offsetting Initiative.
Through the initiative, Barony Castle Hotel offsets 264 tonnes of CO2 every year, an amount equivalent to driving 738,000 miles, or 70 return flights from Edinburgh to Sydney.
