Freda Newton MBE, is the owner and Managing Director of the award winning cruise experience company – Loch Ness by Jacobite based on the banks of the world’s most famous loch.
 
Freda purchased Jacobite Cruises in 2002. She immediately drew upon her industry wide experience and understanding of the tourism market to launch a full company rebrand.
Customer service and marketing form the backbone of Freda’s business strategy. With digital media, wild PR stunts and industry leading communications she stays front of mind and by focussing on exemplar customer experience she delivers beyond expectations.
 
Freda is a passionate advocate when it comes to promoting and advancing the tourism industry in the Highlands and across wider Scotland.
 
Part of this work included helping to launch Destination Loch Ness, the local Destination Management Organisation and Scotland’s first Tourism Bid opening the area for further investment and promoting the Highlands to new audiences all over the world.
 
Her services were recognised in 2017 when Freda received her MBE for service to Economic and Community Development in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, the same year that she was awarded the industries highest accolade, the Silver Thistle Award at the Scottish Thistle Awards.
