Welcome to Macdonald Inchyra Hotel & Spa which is ideally
set in the heart of Scotland, allowing easy access to
Edinburgh,Glasgow and the Highlands. With extensive meeting and
events facilities, 100 bedrooms, Scottish Steak Club and
magnificent Spa we truly can offer something for everyone.
I joined Macdonald Hotels & Resorts in 2013 and managed
Macdonald Cardrona Hotel, Golf & Spa before moving to Macdonald
Inchyra Hotel & Spa in May 2015.
I am very much looking forward to welcoming some familiar and
new faces through the doors of the hotel and spa. I firmly
believe there's nothing like a Scottish welcome when visiting a
hotel and we will be ensuring the Macdonald quality and welcome
shines through at every opportunity. At the moment our team
are hard at work on many projects including our company-wide Room
15 initiative, which aims at reducing our carbon footprint. The
team here at the Inchyra are heavily involved in many local
community partnerships and charities.
I have always worked in hotels, starting off with a school job
washing dishes in my local hotel in Portpatrick. After a
brief spell in the kitchen whilst studying Hospitality Management
atNapierUniversity, I then went to work in various hotels in
Yorkshire,Cheshireand back home inScotland. During my
relaxing time away from the hotel I love to golf, although I'm not
sure I'm getting any better! My home life revolves around my
wife, Kate and son and daughter, James and Sophie. With
James' involvement in pro-youth football with Ayr United I
regularly travel the length and breadth of the country. Our
busy house is completed with two cats and Maisie our Working Cocker
At Macdonald Inchyra Hotel & Spa we aim to create a
professional environment with attention to the excellent food and
service you should expect at a Macdonald Hotel.
I do hope you enjoy your stay with us and will experience all
that the hotel has to offer.
