Welcome to the beautiful four star Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel & Spa in the heart of the Trossach's, which is often referred to as the Gateway to the Highlands.

I took over the position of Resort General Manager in January 2013 having spent some 7 years at a sister hotel in Peebles.  I arrived amidst a major renovation of the hotel exterior.  The finished job is absolutely stunning and has been followed by the addition of 17 stunning new bedrooms and a full refurbishment of the lounge, cocktail bar, Garden restaurant and Rafters Bistro.

I have been very fortunate to work with an amazing group of people who have helped move the hotel to a new level.  The success of the hotel has been at the forefront of everything they do.  Our team is forever looking for new and exciting challenges and we are all currently working towards attaining a Centre of Excellence and AA red star status.

After graduating from Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, I started my working life as a management trainee with the NHS and then spent several years working in various hospitals in Edinburgh.  A chance conversation with a friend resulted in a career change when I entered the world of hotels as an Executive Housekeeper and then progressed to reception and then Operations Manager.

At home I love walking in the countryside with my husband Craig and my terrier Tilly.  I also enjoy music, singing and reading.

At Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel & Spa we try to create a home from home for our guests.  Something unique with the friendliness and professionalism of well trained staff, yet with the high standards of every Macdonald Hotel.

I trust that you will enjoy your stay and will leave with warm memories of our team, our food and the stunning views of Loch Ard.
