Our dedicated Team
We provide our guests with a truly exceptional Highland experience. We have put together a small but dedicated team to make your stay at Links House special from beginning to end. Meet the team who are responsible for delivering impeccable service at one of the most luxurious Scottish Highlands Hotels.
Phil Scott, General Manager
Phil joined the Links House team in February 2019. Born and raised in Aberdeen, Phil is delighted to be working at Links House after overseas roles in China, Mongolia and Singapore. Throughout his last 23 years in the hospitality sector, Phil has developed a skill set that has been invaluable in strengthening all aspects of Links House, particularly the culinary programme.
In 2020, Phil was awarded the National Rising Star Manager of the year at the Scottish Hotel Awards and under his stewardship Links House placed 6th in the UK for the Conde Nast Traveller, Reader’s Choice Award.
In his younger days, Phil played rugby, which inspired him to try Australian Rules Football (AFL), resulting in him being selected for Scotland’s national AFL Team! Nowadays, Phil is happier on two wheels or on the golf course.
Duncan Walker, Food & Beverage Manager
A legitimate Highlander, Duncan has recently joined the team at Links House bringing with him 21 years in the hospitality and wine trade.
Having worked across Scotland for many years Duncan is delighted to have come home to the Highlands, where he intends to share his passion for all topics related to the culinary, whisky and vinous worlds he loves. Look out for his selection of American wines at Mara, the best in Scotland!
Kerry Morrison, Guest Relations Manager
Kerry Morrison joined the Links House Team in April 2019 as the Guest Relations Manager. A local to the area, Kerry grew up twenty minutes from Dornoch in a small Highlands village. As a result, Kerry’s passion for her heritage greatly influences her role in providing each guest with an authentic Scottish experience. Prior to joining the Links House team, Kerry studied Business and Tourism in Aberdeen which laid the foundation for her work in the hospitality sector. Upon completion of her degree, Kerry went on to further her experience in luxury travel and customer service through working with Skibo Castle and Castle Stuart Links. In her spare time, Kerry can be found travelling with her children in favourite spots such as Harris in the Outer Hebrides.
Beata Pett, Head Housekeeper
Beata came to Scotland in 2004, from her native Poland, joining the Kingsmills Hotel in Inverness, first as Housekeeper and was promoted to Head Housekeeper. She stayed at Kingsmills for 10 years and joined Links House in April 2014 as a Housekeeper. She has been awarded the Young Ambassador of the Year at the Highland and Islands Tourism Awards in 2008.
More recently her team won the regional award for Housekeeping at the 2020 Scottish Hotel Awards. A very well deserved accolade for our ladies.
