Biomass Woodchip Installation – The Eco-Friendly Option

Last year saw the installation of a new ETA 90kW biomass system at The Craigdarroch Inn that provides all the inn's hot water and heating. The boiler is run with woodchip provided from local sustainable forestry.  Martin purchases all wood locally and chips it on-site.  It is an interesting system to see so, if you are keen to see biomass in action, do ask Martin or Elinor to show you the workings of the system.  All bedrooms and bathrooms have centrally heated radiators with manual thermostat controls, thus ensuring our guests can adjust the temperature in their rooms to suit their own needs.


Please get in touch if you have any questions about our biomass heating system.
