What's in a name?

What's in a name?

November 3rd, 2021

We have chosen to “cement” the names of influencers in our project by naming rooms after them / or giving them the opportunity to name a room.

The names have been used throughout the refurbishment process (to refer to specific rooms). and has proven itself to be worthy of the task.

A sneak peek into the WHY behind the WHAT!

  1. The Bell - named after the team at RW Bell who has been toiling non-stop to realise my dream (whether in their office in Pitlochry, working in the The Viewmount in Kingussie …). They first did wonders on Little Viewmount and have been toiling away on The Viewmount ever since.

  2. The Reid - Neil & Owen Reid | Reid Plant Hire who were the absolute first people to help on site (scraping the drive and gritting as far back as December 2020). They are to be thanked for building the first retaining walls, widening the road, repositioning a set of stairs …

  3. The Leslie - Simon Leslie | SM Leslie Plant was instrumental in creating my landscape vision. He creates beauty with speed and pinpoint precision - he is rumoured to be able to stir a cup of coffee with the front attachment on his 20 ton CAT earth mover.

  4. The Sharon - perhaps my silent “muse”. Sharon-Leigh was a friend and former employer. Her memory is kept present and very alive by her family, none more so her daughter who has published a cookbook with her favourite dishes.The downstairs accessible room commemorates her and her larger than life persona!

  5. Grampian View - Our library / 2nd reception faces towards this mountain range (often incorrectly referred to as The Cairngorms mountains) and was named by Michael Clark (professional green, grass & landscape care specialist) who has been instrumental in getting the garden green and whose expertise will continue to keep it green! Turfing, mowing, advising.

  6. Lounge - tbc

  7. Wine cellar “snug” - tbc
