Drumossie Team

Kenny McMillan – General Manager

Heading up the team at Drumossie Hotel is Kenny McMillan, an award-winning chef whose connections with the venue run deep.  Kenny began his career with Macdonald Hotels & Resorts in 2004 and joined the team at Drumossie in 2007 as executive chef before becoming regional chef and later group executive chef for the North of Scotland.  Driven by a passion for showcasing Scotland’s abundant larder, he was named Scottish Executive Chef of the Year in 2015. His first management role followed when he took the reins at Pittodrie House Hotel in 2017 and Kenny’s career took him home to Inverness in 2019 when he took up his current role at the iconic Drumossie Hotel.

Euan Walker – Executive Chef

The former Young Highland Chef of the Year and Rising Star of the Year at the 2018 Highlands & Islands Tourism Awards started his award-winning career under the guidance of his father. At the age of 17 he joined the team at Drumossie Hotel as a commis chef where he worked under the tutelage of Kenny McMillan and worked hard to progress to the position of sous chef. After leaving to gain valuable experience in other settings, Euan made a triumphant return to Drumossie as head chef and, more recently, executive chef.

Stewart McPherson – Head Chef

After starting his career with Kenny at Macdonald Aviemore Resort in 2007, Stewart moved to Drumossie Hotel where he progressed to the role of executive chef, mentoring chefs who went on to win prestigious awards. After a spell away from Drumossie, Stewart has now returned as Euan’s right-hand man, continuing his long and successful association with the hotel.

Kat Wardrop – Operations Manager

Kat is ultimate proof that the Drumossie Hotel team really is a family – she is executive chef Euan’s sister. Former chef Kat joined the team in 2012 and progressed to the role of head pastry chef before a move to her current operational role, supporting the general manager, two years ago.

Zanetta Parzonka – Food & Beverage Manager

Zanetta joined the Drumossie Hotel team as a commis waitress over 10 years ago and has since moved through the ranks to her current role as F&B Manager. Zanetta commands a wealth of expertise inside the hotel, and is every bit as knowledgeable about the hotel’s unrivalled location, nearby wild foraging and our wonderful natural environment.

Marta first joined Macdonald Hotels & Resorts as a waitress at Macdonald Aviemore Resort in 2005. She moved to work on the resort’s reception before heading up the A9 to Drumossie Hotel almost a decade ago. Initially reception manager, she became our front office manager in 2015.
