New Visitor Services Manager at Kinloch Castle - July 2011


Kinloch Castle on the Isle of Rum has appointed a new Visitor Services Manager. David Armstrong came to Rum on the 11th of July 2011 and has started in his new role.His wife Lynda and 22 month old daughter Elena will be joining David on Rum in the next few weeks. They are moving from the Wirral Peninsula which is sandwiched between north Wales and Liverpool - so they are used to wet conditions with biting insects! David has a broad background including serving 13 years in the army which included being stationed in a variety of countries such as Norway, Denmark, the Falklands, Canada, Germany and Bosnia. He has also studied and attained an MA in History which has led his career to the heritage field. He was once a costume interpreter at the Tower of London and he recently worked for 4 years with the National Trust. This was in the Liverpool area which involved the management of Speke Hall, and Mendips and 20 Forthlin Road – the childhood homes of John Lennon and Paul McCartney!

David and his family are looking forward to exploring Rum and the Highlands – David is keen on wildlife and is a closet twitcher, Lynda is keen to do kayaking and canoeing and their daughter has already shown liking of horses and ponies – so Rum should be able to keep them entertained. They are also looking forward to getting involved with the nursery and school on Rum.

Welcome to Rum David, Lynda and Elena!
