Scotland’s four-star Loch Lomond Arms Hotel has appointed two new chefs.
Allan McLaughlin has been appointed head chef, while David Hetherington is the 18th century coaching inn’s new sous chef.
Both chefs come from an extensive background in the kitchens of some of the country’s top establishments.
McLaughlin joins the hotel from his previous head chef role at Woodlands Park in Surrey, part of the prestigious Hand Picked Hotel Collection. Heading up the kitchen, he was in charge of the fine dining restaurant, brasserie and nine private dining rooms. He has also had experience in a number of London gastropubs, including Gary Rhodes Brasserie.
Hetherington previously worked at the Riverhill Deli & Cafe and the Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery in Glasgow, before joining the brigade at Loch Lomond Arms. A local from Arrochar, he boasts a stint on MasterChef on his CV, when he got to the third round three years ago aged just 23.
The Loch Lomond Arms Hotel is a traditional coaching inn situated in Luss, 24 miles from Glasgow within the Loch Lomond National Park. The hotel consists of 14 individually designed bedrooms, a bar, restaurant, as well as a weddings and events suite.
