Meet the Team
Chef Patron | Ryan McCutcheon
From growing up in Stranraer on the west coast of Scotland, Ryan has had the pleasure of working in a number of Scotland’s most prestigious hotels where he has condensed the best of his knowledge to bring to your plates at Achray House. Working in Perthshire, also known as ‘Scotland’s Larder’, Chef Ryan is in his element creating flavourful and dynamic dishes whilst always pushing the boundaries.
Director | Laura Muirhead
Laura grew up spending time at her grandparents’ pubs in Burntisland and with her mum hosting students every summer and running a small B&B in Edinburgh. After 20 years living and working in Tokyo, Amsterdam & London in various careers, she came back to Scotland in 2019 to realise a dream and something that is in her blood. Being a foodie she is passionate about seeing the day Achray House becomes a food tourism destination, celebrating all the great ingredients on the doorstep in Perthshire.
Ester | Queen of the House
Ester came to St Fillans at the age of 5 in the summer of 2019 to enjoy her retirement. She was a racing greyhound at Newcastle prior to us getting her from the Borders Greyhound centre in Eyemouth. It took her a little while to settle in but now she is very relaxed and very much part of the Achray House family.
The other members of our close-knit and hard working team include: Lyndsay, David M, Aiden, David R, Chris, Leanne, Lesley Ann, Eilidh, Jamie P, Tracey, Jessie, Jamie L and Thomas.
