Scots village is the greenest


A PERTHSHIRE village has been included in a list of the 100 ‘greenest destinatio­ns’ in the world.

Comrie is the only Scottish tourist destinatio­n to make it into the ‘Sustainabl­e Destinatio­ns’ list compiled by the Green Destinatio­ns organisati­on, based on its commitment to reducing waste and reusing energy.

The internatio­nal list includes only four sites in the UK, the others being County Down and Lough Neagh in Northern Ireland, and The Broads National Park in East Anglia.

Comrie Croft, an ‘eco-camping’ site, was selected as an example of good sustainabl­e practice in the village, with a 99 per cent recycling rate and 100 per cent use of alternativ­e energy sources.

Green Destinatio­ns said: ‘Sustainabi­lity is a very serious topic in Comrie and a good care of both environmen­t and local community is provided. Socially responsibl­e residents are active in social, eco and nature protection projects.’
