David Gandy Visits Loch Lamond (Scotland)

Supermodel David Gandy visits Loch Lomond


A WORLD famous supermodel stayed at Loch Lomond last week while working for magazine Man of the World.

David Gandy, famous as the face of Dolce and Gabbana, was taking part in a photo shoot in Glencoe and stayed at Duck Bay Marina on the Bonnie Banks over the weekend.

The 34-year-old British model dined in the restaurant alongside a team of stylists on both Friday and Saturday night – eating fish on both occasions.

David stayed in the Robert Burns suite at Duck Bay, which has a private terrace with stunning views of Loch Lomond.

He tweeted a photo from his stay to his followers and captioned it ‘on location on Loch Lomond for Man of the World feature’.

For several years, Essex born David was the lead model for Italian designers Dolce and Gabbana and is best known for the 2007 advert of Dolce and Gabbana’s fragrance Light Blue shot by photographer Mario Testino.

The advert had 11 million online hits and saw a 50-foot billboard of him displayed in Times Square, New York.

Alan Cawley, owner of Duck Bay Marina, said his restaurant was the busiest weekend he has had for the month of October and he believes this is down to David visiting.

He told the Advertiser: "We got a call on Tuesday to take a reservation for David and two other models. They were doing a fashion shoot at Glencoe and checked in on Friday night, they worked from 7am till late and dined in our restaurant both nights". 
Because of social media, word got out pretty quickly that he was staying and our bookings for tables in the restaurant increased. Women were asking to get a table close to him so they could get a glimse of the supermodel".
We were delighted to have David stay with us, he told us he loved both Loch Lomond and Scotland and would be delighted to come back".
There were lots of woman in the restaurant over the weekend and David was happy to sign autographs and take pictures.

Scott Beaton, restaurant manager at Duck Bay had the pleasure of meeting and serving David and was photographed with him.
