Muirhouses Farm B&B
At Muirhouses Farm, we’re passionate about being green!
Our onsite wind turbine generates most of our electricity and we recently installed a Biomass Boiler so we now use our own home-grown straw and suitable waste materials to heat all the homes on the farm, including Muirhouses B&B and our self-catering cottage, and to supply all our hot water. As a result, the only carbon fuels we use are in our vehicles – and we’re working on that!
It can be very cold in this part of Scotland so, for additional heating, there are wood burning stoves (which burn locally-grown wood) in the farmhouse, farm cottages and all our buildings are very well-insulated.
We use phosphate-free cleaning materials and low-energy lightbulbs – and we’re dedicated recyclers!
In addition, we serve local and home-made products whenever possible, reducing air miles and supporting the excellent local producers in Angus – it’s no wonder guests love Muirhouses Farm breakfasts.
We have just been awarded Gold in the Green Tourism Business Scheme which acknowledges our committment to our guests enjoyment and comfort during their visit to Muirhouses as well to the environment.
We are situated 1 mile north of Kirriemuir on the B955, signposted for Glen Clova. There are brown tourism signs directing you from the edge of Kirriemuir right to our door.
Coming from either north or south take the A90 leaving it at the Kirriemuir junction. Follow local signs for Glen Clova (B955) as you approach Kirriemuir – it takes you round, rather than through Kirriemuir.
Nearest train station is Dundee and buses run to Kirriemuir every hour. Bus stop for Muirhouses is 1 mile, please let us know if you need picked up.
