David Scott-Park has lived at Portnellan Farm, Gartocharn for the last 60 odd years, where he farms with his wife, Freda and son, Chris. The farm has been organic for the last 20 years, originally as an organic dairy and for the last 10 years rearing organic beef off grass. The farm has diversified to offer accommodation and moorings for boats. He has been an active member of the National Farmers Union of Scotland for many years. His interests include mountaineering, skiing, travelling and playing the bagpipes.
I am a retired teacher and taught maths and computing at Bearsden Academy. Four years ago we decided to move to Gartocharn full time after spending weekends here for many years. To meet some of the locals I joined the B Flats and Drymen Bridge Club. I have also met neighbours on our regular walks round the village and along shore path. My other interests are yoga, patchwork and gardening. As a member of the KCC I look forward to meeting more of the community and contributing to making the village flourish!
