TRAVEL firm gets green light with Scottish PR.

Scottish travel management firm, Equilibrium Travel Management (EQ) has been featured in the environmental press after revealing it purchased two new hybrid cars in a bid to lower their CO2 emissions.

The two new cars will be used as the firm’s company cars, acting as the primary mode of transport for its eight travel executives.

In addition to this development the firm is also in the process of researching the feasability of installing hydro-electric power project which will harness the power of a natural waterfall which lies on the land to provide clean energy to power EQ.

Franc Jeffrey, Managing Director of EQ said: “We are making a great effort to lessen the environmental impact of our business which we believe is a crucial move to make in these times, especially when you consider that our industry is one of the highest polluters in the planet.”

EQ has also adopted green practices in its day to day business and has launched ‘responsible; travel policies for clients who wish to do their bit in reducing the harm inflicted on the environment through the travelling they undertake.

The full coverage can be viewed on the Ecoseed website and was secured on behalf of EQ thanks to an ongoing PR campaign with Holyrood PR.


Wedding Bells Ring For Balmule Scottish PR

EQ‘s office – Balmule House near Dunfermline has just been granted a wedding license after significant demand for it to make use of it’s stunning grounds and interiors.

The Dunfermline Press featured an article on this exciting news in last week’s paper!

Balmule House opened its doors last year after an intensive renovation process and has since proved popular for corporate events and as a luxury guest house.

Originally a square tower house built in 1505, generations of owners and families have helped Balmule House evolve whilst maintaining a traditional charm.

Now for the first time in its rich history, Balmule has become available for couples looking for an intimate countryside location for their big day.

Franc Jeffrey, Owner of Balmule House, said: “It is wonderful to be able to open up our home and grounds for others to enjoy, and it is a real coup for us that we have been granted a weddings license as it is something we have wanted to be able to offer since we opened, and we have had many enquiries.

“We have invested a significant amount of time and money into the project to ensure that those who get married at Balmule will enjoy the truly special and luxurious day that they deserve.”

Set within 30 acres of stunning countryside, this special property provides an ideal setting for weddings in all weathers, with facilities for indoor ceremonies in the main reception room for up to 40 guests or in a 250 person marquee in the grounds.

Drinks receptions can be held on the terrace surrounded by a beautiful walled garden and wonderful views out onto the rolling Fife countryside.

Balmule’s sophisticated interiors have featured in a range of home and lifestyle magazines since its completion last year, and with  seven  individually designed bedrooms boasting all modern comforts as well as a fabulous bridal suite with a champagne fridge, coffee kitchen and double bathroom where both newly weds and their guests can relax in style.

For couples looking to spend the weekend at Balmule, guests are well catered for with a range of top class activities available locally including golf on the world famous courses of St Andrews and Gleneagles, a trip to a castle or a spot of fly fishing.
