Although I was born and brought up in Rothiemurchus it was in 1975 when Philippa and I returned to live here. Our three children, Louisa, James and Alexandra were lucky to have their grandmother living just across the fields as I had, and although now grown up they return very often and Rothiemurchus will always be their home. The area has completely transformed from my childhood, and we see our job as managing the change in Rothiemurchus so we can keep it as a special place for each of our hundreds of thousand visitors as well as those lucky enough to live here. We prefer to be called Johnnie and Philippa as Mr has never been the traditional Highland way.
Johnnie Grant, 17th Laird of Rothiemurchus
