    Formerly of Northern Ireland, Jonny’s passion for cooking has gained widespread recognition within the hospitality industry.

    Having worked with Paul Rankin at the Michelin starred Roscoff in Belfast Jonny moved to Scotland in August 1999 as a Sous Chef at Gleneagles, before moving to Ballathie House Hotel, swiftly becoming Head Chef. In 2007 Jonny became Head Chef at Murrayshall Country House Hotel in Scone retaining 2 AA Rosettes for the restaurant and achieving a silver from Eat Scotland.

    During Jonny’s career he has been fortunate to have cooked for well-known people including members of the royal family and has completed ‘stages’ at restaurants including Marco Pierre White’s ‘Mirabelle’ and Michel Roux Jr.’s ‘Le Gavroche’.

    In his spare time Jonny enjoys spending time with family, foraging and salmon fishing.

     

     

  • Nope – no Pokemons here!

    18th July 2016

    Rumour has it we ‘had’ a Pokemon appear at the weekend – we would know if we have and we haven’t seen it – we looked everywhere!.

    As much as we want to be up with the latest trends and down with the kids, there are no Pokestops, no eggs and no gyms. We do have quite a few Roe deer, rabbits and birds, a tennis court, fountains and mysterious room with no access to it in the turret.

    Carlowrie is a family friendly ‘non-combat’ private estate. Terrestrial visits are by appointment only – we don’t want to disappoint or appear to be rude by refusing access – ‘…Go’ Away’ if you stroll up the drive un-announced – see what we did there! Our virtual viewings can be arranged by Skype and Facebook. Thank you

  • OUR NEW BAR

    08th June 2016

    The castle has a brand new glamorous bar that was installed for Andrew’s 40th birthday party (he owns the castle) which was a great success. In fact a little too much of a success! But, we didn’t say that.  The addition of the bar ensures that guests experience the ‘exclusively’ intimate atmosphere of a private members club when they stay, or join us as part of a larger group. Ideal to gather for a pre, and post, event drink or two!!

  • LIGHTS CAMERA ACTION!

    30th November 2015

    This year so far has been a massive success with weddings full of many fantastic suppliers, one in which stood out.  We had the please of working alongside White Balloon Films and helping create spectacular memories for our bride & groom.  Alina and Stewart Carroll, the husband and wife team behind the White Balloon Films, continue to push the boundaries of what can be expected from a wedding film.  With a creative background stretching far beyond an education in film and animation at The University Of The Arts, London, White Balloon Film uses all the tools at its disposal to create cinematic wedding films with production vales not normally found in the kind of work.  Mindful that the videographer’s presence must be non-intrusive and discrete on the wedding day, White Balloon Films use state of the art equipment like a legal licensed drone for dramatic aerial footage and an electronic steadicam for truly cinematic shots of the couple and guests.  Excitingly, technology for film makers continues to move forward at a rate of knots, creating more and more opportunities to create stunning visuals previously only available to their Hollywood counterparts.  Embracing these opportunities, the future is bright for your White Balloon Film!
