It’s all Electric: an Interview with Murray

Posted: July 25th, 2018 | Posted in: General News

It’s no secret that at Mackays, we work hard to minimise our carbon footprint. If you too, share a passion for green living, you’ll be delighted to know that Mackays have a Tesla charging point available for all conscious drivers!

Green efforts such as these are not uncommon here at Mackays, where we have been awarded with a Gold Standard Green Tourism Award. Yet as they always say don’t judge an award by it’s cover. So, in order to unearth the eco-friendly pursuits at Mackays, we had a chat with proud owner Murray Lamont on his views of all things green.


Tell us about a little bit about the TESLA charging point at Mackays?

‘The Tesla charger is available free to Tesla drivers who are staying or dining with us at Mackays. Our thinking is simple, charge while you dine at no extra cost!’


Were there any motives for installing a TESLA charging point?

‘We strive to provide a quality service for all of our visitors while ensuring a small impact on the environment. With the increasing amount of Tesla drivers travelling in the North and undertaking the NC500 route, installing a Tesla charging point satisfied both of these goals. Who knows, someone might just let me drive one!’


Does this pave the way for further Green efforts?

‘Absolutely, this is the future and we want to be part of it. We already have our biomass boiler, have been using energy saving light bulbs since they were launched and we are very proud we achieved a Gold for our very first Green Tourism assessment and we want to keep it!’


There you have it folks, travel the world without the costs, we must warn you – there may be a small wait, Max and Bria are first in line!
