On 29th September, 2008, Annette Reavley started her new job at Strathmashie, working as part of a close knit team with Mark and Pat Goddard, Sandra Grant and Jim Langley in the new building at Strathmashie House. She is a printed music expert, having worked for twenty years in sheet music sales at J. G. Windows in the centre of Newcastle Upon Tyne, one of the most respected music shops in the U.K.
Annette, an experienced musician herself, has wanted to live and work in the Highlands of Scotland for many years. Annette came on holiday to Strathmashie in 2003, staying in the Keeper's Cottage as part of a Spartan Press self catering holiday promotion offer. So in 2008, she moved into the Keeper's Cottage at Strathmashie House, along with her two cats!
Annette continues to co-ordinate the retail sales at Strathmashie, although she has now found a house in Laggan village.
