The People At Forss House Hotel & Restaurant
Anne - Manager
A legend in her own lifetime, Anne has been a fixture at Forss for over 25 years now. Known up and down the country she is famous for her sharp wit, swift retorts and knowledge of every whisky in the bar (that's near enough 300 of them!). She looks after all of us – staff and guests.
Eilidh, Janet and the Housekeeping Team
A local farmers' daughter Eilidh joined us full time in 2013 after finishing her Hospitality Management course at the North Highland College. Now a well established part of the Forss team she is Duty Manager supporting Anne. Always cheery and happy to help Janet is in charge of housekeeping supported by Judy and our team of local ladies.
Janette - Breakfast waitress
Just as well Janette is a morning person as she has been serving breakfast at Forss for the last 8 years. If you are up with the sparrows she can be seen wheeling her bicycle down the drive early in the mornings, whatever the weather.
Phil - Maintenance and night cover
Been with us since 2009, Phil is really here for the surf and we try to work his day around the best waves. Phil is in charge of maintenance and the garden and is a brilliant fixer of everything, much needed in an old house like Forss. He is also on call if there are any problems in the night; just as well that he is calm in a crisis.
Head Chef Darren and the Kitchen Team
Like our food, the Kitchen team has a distincly local flavour. Darrent rejoined us this year after a few years working away from Caithness in some of Scotlands top restaurants and hotels. Alongside him is Ross, one of our upcoming local chefs who graduated from North Highland College in Thurso.
Ian and Sabine – Owners
Moved to the Highlands from the smoke in 1999. Ian discovered Forss and persuaded Sabine to come and look at the house on a lovely blue sky Caithness day, one foot over the threshold and she was smitten too. Ian tries to look after the money and Sabine spends it!
