A family affair.


We are Yvonne (Scottish) and Douglas (Alberta, Canada), a Scottish/Canadian couple with two daughters. Much of our family life has been spent in Montreal, Canada.  Our hearts are very much split between Scotland and Canada and we consider ourselves blessed to come from two most beautiful countries.

We have had opportunity to live in several countries, and has worked and designed in the fashion industry for over 25 years. Presently we are living in Moscow, Russian and enjoying our somewhat nomadic life. Glenarder has provided the ‘yin to our yang’, contrasting our passion for outdoors and nature with the thrill of an exciting industry and global urban life.

We come from a luxury fashion design and interior design background and have designed Glenarder from this starting point. Our focus is on practical luxury, authentic to Highland life. We have filled Glenarder with bits and pieces from our travels such as hand-made wood pieces from Canada and rugs from Azerbaijan.  In addition we have selected quality pieces from local and UK designers such as Johnston’s of Elgin,   Timorous Beasties, Tom Dixon and Devol Kitchens.

Glenarder is our home-away-from-home base, a special meeting place for family and friends. Most importantly it provides us complete solitude and quite when desired, always needed and a welcome retreat from our busy ‘other life’.

We invite you to share this special little spot in the world.

Yvonne Mandel.
