Scott Bolton has worked with us for many years. He is a great chef and this year he did a 4 week stint at Loch Fyne where he ended up staying for about 3 months, another good long stint at Bootleggers & Bothy Bistro on the East coast. Scott got on great at Bridge Hotel, Buttermere – where again he stayed longer than the original 4 weeks and now he’s working hard at The Angus Hotel.

Jason McKay came on board this year with his first relief placement at Cardrona, Peebles. His second placement was a short stint at Hunday Manor, West Cumbria and his third placement was at Mackays Hotel in Wick as Head Chef where he accepted the position on a permanent basis.

Jamie Marshall was new to us this year - starting off at Loch Fyne where he stayed for longer than originally booked and was asked back for a second stint. Next over to the Salutation in Perth where he got on really well and now at Skeabost Hotel, Isle of Skye.
