Douglas Chalmers

Douglas Chalmers has owned Ashbourne since 1998 and is a self confessed "Anglicised but nevertheless patriotic Scot". He is an experienced shot as well as a keen fisherman , especially for salmon and sea trout. With the involvement of the shooting and fly fishing instructors he will make sure that you and your guests are given the best possible instruction and assistance in both sports, at the same time as ensuring total safety and enjoyment.


Prior to owning Ashbourne, Douglas was a Lloyd's insurance broker throughout his previous working career, and this involved him travelling extensively throughout the Caribbean and South America primarily arranging insurance for the sugar industry during the late 1970's. Following this he lived for almost 20 years in Hong Kong working for HSBC and left in 1995 having been Managing Director of their insurance broking company.


He is married with two grown up boys, one of whom is a good shot and the other a good fisherman!
