Zoltan Szabo has joined the luxury Cameron House resort in Loch Lomond as executive chef ahead of the hotel's reopening in 2021.
The West Dunbartonshire property has been closed since a fire damaged the building in 2017 and is undergoing extensive restoration and extension work.
Szabo will oversee the resort's existing restaurants and bars as well as three new venues set to open as part of the hotel's relaunch next April.
He has more than 15 years' experience working at hotels across Scotland, including as senior head chef at Cameron House from 2014-15.
He said: "Cameron House has such a diverse and dynamic food offering ranging from contemporary fine dining, large scale luxury events, golf and leisure catering right through to the traditional afternoon tea, which will allow me to indulge my passion for Scotland's incredible larder."
Cameron House has also appointed Cerelle Gooding, formerly of the Four Seasons Hualalai in Hawaii, as director of sales. Tony Cheung is now director of revenue management and joins from Grosvenor House, a JW Marriott property, in London.
The resort's Cameron Club and Spa, Carrick Golf Course, the Marina, Cameron Lodges, and the Boat house restaurant have all reopened following lockdown. The Leisure Club, the Great Scots Bar and Cameron Grill will reopen alongside the hotel in April.
