Andy Wallace - Director
Andy Wallace is married to Patricia (Pat) and moved to Glenlivet in 2014 when he and Pat bought Tamdhu House in Auchbreck which they now operate as Thistle Dhu Bed and Breakfast. Andy has a depth of experience in Defence having spent 42 years as an Army Officer, both Regular Service and Army Reserve, where he gained leadership and decision-making experience in some fairly complex and demanding areas. On leaving the regular Army, he transferred to the Territorial Army/Army Reserve to continue his military adventure as a part timer, which included some operational deployments. He spent 18 years in the Ministry of Defence and Defence Industry where he led and managed programmes in acquisition of Defence equipment, scientific research and technology development. More recently, since 2013 he has gained business experience in Defence consulting and contract work and in setting up and operating the Bed and Breakfast enterprise.
Andy is an enthusiastic member of the Glenlivet community. He is Secretary to the Glenlivet Hall Committee, enjoys exploring the environment and local wildlife on his mountain bike, and when the snow arrives – skiing at the nearby ski centres.
