Innes Morrison - Trustee.jpg

Innes Morrison - Representing North Harris

Innes has worked on North Harris Estate from a young age, employed in many different roles under several different owners. He has now held the position of Estate Manager for Amhuinnsuidhe Castle Estate for a number of years. This has allowed him the opportunity to fulfil his passion in fishing and field sports, and to manage the seven loch systems and create a very successful fishery.

Innes likes to spend his spare time out on the hills and lochs with rod and gun, and to follow the football and attend other organisations in the local community. However, his growing family puts pressure on his time and these interests don't get as much of a look in as they once did.
