Award-winning Charcoal Huts off to a great start!

Our new off-grid accommodation, The Charcoal Huts, is up and running and officially award-winning!!

In June, they were awarded the Argyll and Bute Council Design Award for 'Best Project under £100k!' We are thrilled that all the care and attention paid to their design and build by local company getMade on our sensitive site has been recognised! On the day of the awards ceremony Councillor Kieron Green, the Council's Policy Lead for Planning commented:

“Congratulations to all our winners. The standard of entries this year was outstanding with fantastic innovative examples across Argyll and Bute of how design is helping to support our environment.

We have a great mix of sensitive renovation of historic buildings to green business ventures and energy efficient new homes and community facilities.

As we work towards achieving net zero by 2045, I hope people will take inspiration from our winning entrants and create design solutions that not only complement the amazing Argyll and Bute landscape, but also meet the highest energy efficiency standards.”

Since then, our Huts are certainly proving popular as we have been busy welcoming our first guests! You can check out some of the brilliant guest reviews we are receiving here on our direct booking page.

We are looking forward to welcoming more visitors to stay with us over coming weeks and months for an award-winning eco-adventure in Bute Forest!
