Lochter Report - Lochter at Top Spot
« on: November 15, 2016, 11:18:12 AM »

On Saturday, Lochter Activity Centre in Oldmeldrum won the prestigious Countryside Award at the Pride of Aberdeen Evening.

Held in the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre and sponsored by Original 106 and the Balmoral Group, the award was for the business that creates, by diversification, a variation on the norm which can be enjoyed by everyone in the countryside.

Lochter croft has been transformed during the past sixteen years into a top fishery, a popular restaurant and conference centre complete with a unique Osprey cam and an outdoor centre offering more than a dozen activities to people of all ages. Over forty thousand trees and shrubs have been planted and these are maturing nicely to transform the entire area.

The management at Lochter wish to thank the many members of the public who, having enjoyed their Lochter experience, then voted for the centre into top spot.

The mild weather has ensured that the activity centre, particularly karting and clay shooting have been very busy and with Christmas just round the corner the staff are gearing up for party nights and Christmas lunches.

What was a small croft employing maybe one person now is a thriving business employing into double figures of staff and enticing many thousands of people to come out and enjoy the countryside. :z18
