As office manager for Goldwells in Tain, Calum Stewart enjoys meeting with clients between Inverness and Tain.

Having grown up in Brora, Calum joined Goldwells when the firm merged with A.W. Gray & Butler in 2017. The Tain office has more than 10 members of staff who provide bookkeeping, VAT, tax, accounts preparation and payroll services. As an area popular with tourists the Tain office sees clients from a wide variety of industries including retail, hospitality, tradespeople, farming and oil and gas to name a few.

After leaving Edinburgh University, Calum began his accountancy career in Aberdeen. He later returned to the Highlands joining A.W. Gray & Butler and continued his accountancy qualifications by undertaking the ICAS examinations.

Over the last year Calum has been busy supporting businesses with various funding applications, restructuring processes and tax planning. He enjoys meeting clients face to face and being inspired by the determined, entrepreneurial spirit amongst people working in the Highlands.

He can be found either in Tain or seeing clients in the Inverness branch, and when not at work he is most likely to be found on a golf course. As treasurer at Brora Golf Club, Calum is pleased to be able to give back to the club which helped him when he played golf at a high level in his younger days. Calum represented Scotland at junior level between the ages of 13 and 18, travelling overseas with the team including playing in Brazil and across Europe, winning a silver medal at the European Young Masters in 2009. He also played golf at university and although no longer playing for his country, each year he promises himself to include more golf in his life.
