Steven McKenzie, Director at J&S McKenzie Group, said: “We’ve been involved in the Moness Resort for a number of years and are pleased to now have the opportunity to enhance the resort, which is close to our hearts. We’ll also be able to further support the local community with refurbishment works by contracting local businesses.

“Royal Bank of Scotland has been instrumental in supporting our ambitions for the business and we are extremely grateful for their guidance throughout the process.”

Jason Cram, Relationship Manager at Royal Bank of Scotland, said: “John and Steven are well positioned to build on the reputation of Moness Resort and continue to grow the business, thanks to their previous involvement and extensive local experience.
