Martin and Jane Beaton

Martin Beaton

Martin is now in his 10th Season on Weddell. Martin is an accomplished chef, artist, expert fisherman and raconteur. On Weddell he has also become a capable mechanic, engineer, sheep and cattle farmer! Martin loves sharing with his visitors, his enjoyment of being on Weddell Island.

Jane Beaton

Jane was a Squadron Leader in the RAF and is now in her 8th Season on Weddell. Like Martin, she has learnt over the years to turn her hand to the 1001 tasks essential to life to live on a remote island. Equally at home when drafting sheep, putting finishing touches to cottages, or taking visitors on a tour in a Land Rover, Jane enjoys the never-ending variety of island life.
