Craigard Holiday Accommodation is a member of The Green Tourism Business Scheme. The Green Tourism Scheme is the main sustainable tourism certification scheme in the UK. We are assessed by a qualified grading advisor against a set of criteria, covering a range of areas, like energy and water efficiency, waste management, biodiversity and using local suppliers.

We appreciate the local environment and the local suppliers in Islay and provide as much information as we can to help our guests to do this too. With the Islay community garden in Bridgend, Billy MacFarlane master butcher in Bowmore, free range eggs from the local shop, Islay chocolate, the fresh fish van in Bowmore, milk from Esknish, the local dairy, Islay Ales and Islay whiskies as well as wild fruits there is plenty of local produce to enjoy.
