New shower heads, same great showers, less water

At Pottery House our Green Tourism Award and our ecologically safe practises are an important aspect of our business.

So recently we replaced all the shower heads in the house with Mira Eco Shower Heads. They work by aerating the water so you get the same volume and powerful water output, but they use up to 75% less water (and therefore the energy required to heat the water).

We trialed one of these is these in our own shower first and thought it was great, really didn't notice much difference, so now we've replaced all the shower heads in the guest en-suites too.

Ness Express - New Boat Trip On Loch Ness


There's a new boat service on Loch Ness and the word is it's proving very popular.

It's a RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) and runs every 2 hours from Fort Augustus to Urquhart Castle and back, about a 90 min trip.

Continual Imrprovement At Pottery House

We're always looking to improve the service and quality at Pottery House, so this week we have had a credit card machine installed.

Although our online payments system has served us well we thought it time we took the extra step of accepting most major credit and debit cards at the house, making payment simpler for our guests.

Our online payments system will remain so guests can still view their bill online.
