Two new general managers have been appointed to take the helm of two of the hotels in the Crieff Hydro Family of Hotels portfolio.

Ken Buchanan has been appointed as the general manager of Isles of Glencoe Hotel, while Chris Hazelton has been appointed as the general manager of Ballachulish Hotel.

Ken brings an impressive amount of industry experience to the role having worked in a managerial position for more than 30 years. His goals for the hotel are to showcase its location and surrounding history, create a family orientated resort, introduce a locally sourced seafood menu, and develop the watersports offering on the breathtaking Loch Leven.

Chris Hazelton was previously head of food and beverage at the highly-reputed The Rookery restaurant at Carnoustie Golf Links, where he not only managed the kitchen staff but the front of house team as well. He plans to showcase the new look of the hotel after its extensive £1.3million refurbishment and build the food offering around the hotel’s spectacular location, which is nestled on the banks of Loch Linnhe.

Stephen Leckie, CEO of Crieff Hydro Family of Hotels, said: ‘We are delighted to welcome both Ken and Chris on board and are looking forward to seeing both hotels flourish under their guidance.’
