A new management new team will oversee the running and re-branding to Armadale Castle, Gardens & Museum of the Isles in time for the start of the 2017 season.
The changes revolving around the leadership of Clan Donald Lands Trust follow the recent resignation of the CEO, Jan Walwork Clarke to pursue other interests, so reported James Macdonald Chairman of the Executive Committee of CDLT.
On behalf of the Trustees, he thanked Jan Clarke for her contribution over the last 2 years. He went on to express his confidence in the outlook for the 2017 season, having passed operational control to the newly formed Management Committee, made up of CDLT’s existing skilled & experienced staff.
The Finance Director, Iain Farquharson, will act as Chairman of this Committee, supported by Sue Geale, Manager of the Museum of the Isles, Chris Cartwright, Estate & Gardens Manager, and Mags Macdonald, Events Coordinator & Accommodation Manager.
The changes are being made in time for the start of the 2017 season, which is expected to be even busier than recent years. The location and facilities at Armadale Castle, Gardens & Museum of the Isles, offer a unique visitor experience, with a wide range of activities and events this year, commencing with the annual Clarsach Competition to be held in the Stables Restaurant on Saturday 25th March.
A list of current staff vacancies, along with a full programme of events for 2017, will be available on our new website, www.armadalecastle.com , which will go live shortly.
