Everyone who lives or works here is passionate about looking after this fantastic place for future generations.

We have a great team working at Rothiemurchus, and although we are all very different, we have one thing in common; we all care passionately about this fantastic place.

Grant Mackenzie



I’ve had a life long passion for agriculture and in particular cattle, so much so that I often find myself talking to them like they are another person.

In my spare time (Not that there is much of that!) I enjoy spending time with my family, attending agricultural shows and all manner of motorsport!

Alph McGregor

Countryside Ranger


68 years old and semi-retired. I come from a family of Gamekeepers, Deer Stalkers and Fishing Ghillies – father, grandfather, brother, uncles and cousins. I have lived and worked all my life in the countryside, being brought up with fishing rod and gun. I worked for 12 years as deer stalker, fishing ghillie and grouse keeper on several Highland estates on Aberdeenshire Deeside, latterly Mar Lodge, before a change of career in my late thirties took me to Drumpellier Country Park, Coatbridge, near Glasgow. This proved to be a radically different but valuable step in a long career of helping people enjoy and appreciate the countryside. After several years the highlands beckoned me once more and I moved up to Rothiemurchus in 1991. I have lived and worked here ever since in various guises, mainly with the Ranger Service and as Fishing Instructor.

Amy Turner

Group Sales Co-ordinator


I first came to Scotland to study at Edinburgh and after graduating I worked for the University of  Aberdeen on a deer management project. I had been visiting Rothiemurchus and always found it such a  beautiful part of Scotland, so I jumped at the chance to work and live somewhere so inspiring! My role as Groups Sales Co-ordinator allows me to help families and larger parties enjoy their visit to the estate. In my spare time, I spend time exploring the forest, lochs and mountains and can usually be found falling off a bike somewhere in the Cairngorms.

Janet Williams

Farm Shop Manager


I was born and brought up in the Oxfordshire countryside and in 2010 I moved to Kingussie with my husband who is a gamekeeper and my 2 children. I love to be out in the countryside hill walking, biking or just out with all our dogs. When I moved here I took up Thai boxing which I love, its fantastic fitness and a great way to release all the stresses! I came to work at Rothiemurchus in October 2016 as the Farm Shop manager I really enjoy food, especially baking and I love looking for and tasting new products to sell (especially new gins!!)
