Robbie was brought up on a mixed beef and sheep farm in Dallas, Morayshire. After leaving school he started working for several local contractors while still continuing to work on the family farm at weekends. His intention has always been to one day farm himself however the acreage of the family farm hindered this until the opportunity arose to take a full time tenancy on Tombrek. The landlord of Dallas Estate, keen for a young person to take on the land at Tombrek approached Robbie with the offer of creating a full time tenancy.
