I have a long term love affair with Scotland. I came to Aberdeenshire for the first time in 1997, looking for an adventure after University. My husband and I drove from Northern Italy through Europe and stopped at St Andrews, Ballater and Aberdeen before ending up in Edinburgh. We lived there for three years and I started my hospitality career at the imposing Balmoral Hotel on Princes Street, the name still bearing strong connections with Aberdeenshire.
After gaining further experience in large five-star city centre hotels in both Scotland and Italy, I moved to Cornwall to manage Tresanton, one of the first hotels in the UK where the design moved away from the classic hotel look. In this fairly small seaside property which looked more like a home than a hotel, my relationship with the guests, the staff and the community became much more personal and critical to the success of the business.
These principles will continue to be at the heart of my job as General Manager at The Fife Arms with the added privilege of being involved in the creation of the hotel from its early stages. I look forward to being part of a business who wants to showcase the beauty and bounty of this wonderful landscape as well as injecting economic vitality to the Upper Royal Deeside. I am also particularly proud of the restoration we are carrying out, both respectful of history and tradition but also projected in the future, with contemporary art features and modern facilities. I look forward to welcoming you to The Fife Arms!
