Originally from Ayrshire I began my career in the coastal resort towns, working summer jobs as a waitress from 1995, immediately I loved the hospitality industry. Helping people enjoy their holidays gave me real satisfaction and as a result I have made this industry my career to date.
Through the years I have held several 3 and 4 star General Manager and Operations Manager roles in locations around Scotland including the central belt, the highlands and various posts in England.
I’m originally from Trinidad where I served in the military before making the UK my home in 1999, since moving to the UK I have owned several businesses in my trade as a professional barber before relocating to Scotland in 2019. My main passion in life is golf, I am a very keen player and I am now fortunate to be surrounded by many fantastic courses. I am also a fantastic cook and my BBQ’s are legendary.
Hamish the dog
When we are working in a dog friendly business, we love to bring our beloved Cockapoo who is 18 months old, super friendly and very well behaved.
If you are not a dog lover please do not be put off, we have excellent dog sitters available to look after Hamish.
