Meet the Team

We're lucky to have a fantastic team here at Deveronside, from knowledgable ghillies to our wonderful housekeeping team! Get to know everyone below...


Carl Malpass

Carl joined our team at the start of 2023.  He will be accompanying guests throughout their stay at Waterside Lodge as well as seeing other visiting anglers on the rotation.  We look forward to you meeting our most recent team member. 



Harvey Grant

Harvey is in his 39th year as ghillie at Lower Netherdale. He always has the best advice and has a knack for showing guests exact spots that a fish will take. Here he is being presented with the 2023 McConnell Award for outstanding contribution to the river.

Jim Cruickshank

Jim caught his first salmon as a 10 year old on the Carnousie beat so when the opportunity arose to buy the beat in 2007 the heart won over the head! Jim now takes much joy from being at the river both fishing himself and spending time with guests. 


Irene, Moira & Jeanette

Irene, Moira and Jeanette have been part of the team for a collective 40 years with Moira leading the team since 2011! They are key members of our team and can be found on changeover days beavering away to prepare for new guests’ arrivals!

Sarah Cruickshank

Sarah moved back home to Aberdeenshire to work with her father and manage Deveronside Fishings & Lodges in 2016. Her favourite part of the job is meeting the guests who come to visit… and having a cast when time allows!
