Calum and Rachel Ross
Calum and Rachel Ross bought Loch Melfort hotel in September 2008 in a rather run-down state and set about refurbishing it on a rolling programme. Although neither Calum nor Rachel had previous hotel experience, they both had long careers in the hospitality industry. Calum worked for Bestfoods UK, then Unilever Foodsolutions, supplying food and beverage products to hotels and restaurants. Rachel spent the first part of her career in the Royal Logistic Corps as a Food Logistics Officer and then worked for Sodexo UK as the Sales and Marketing Director for their Defence Division. They both wanted to become owner/operators and combine family life with business, with Loch Melfort Hotel being up for sale just at the right time in their lives!
Calum and Rachel are passionate about sustainable and quality produce, they are wine enthusiasts and animal lovers. You might spot the hens running freely.
