The UK’s first all-vegan hotel, Saorsa 1875 has been declared a winner at National Geographic’s ‘The Big Sleep Awards 2020’.

The Perthshire hotel is also listed as one of National Geographic’s top 48 new hotels in the world.


The hotel opened in June 2019 by Sandra and Jack McLaren-Stewart and has been receiving great support and recognition from national and international media ever since.  


Boasting 11 individually designed bedrooms, Saorsa 1875 is completely free from animal products: Furnishings, toiletries, cleaning products are all vegan as well as the food and drink.

The property also supports the Green Earth Appeal by planting a tree for every dinner served and is entirely powered by Ecotricity, a green energy company that's Vegan Society-certified.


National Geographic wrote: "Founded by mother-and-son duo Sandra and Jack McLaren-Stewart, [the hotel] goes far beyond just sustainable, plant-focused grub: everything here is vegan, from the booze in the hotel bar to the cleaning products and upcycled furniture in the lounge. Naturally, the heating comes from 100 per cent renewable energy. Meanwhile, in the kitchen, Australian chef Deborah Fleck conjures up five-course dining extravaganzas using produce sourced locally or from the hotel's gardens, with a tree planted for every dinner served."




 Australian chef Deborah Fleck is in charge of their kitchen and is proud to only use produce sourced locally including from the hotel’s very own gardens.
