We are a couple in our seventies, Bev is a violin maker and Jill is a "professional" granny. We live on a isolated peninsula without road access so visitors have to arrive on foot along a rough track or we can collect you in our boat. We are off Grid and our power comes from a wind turbine and PV. We have a cat and hens and most of our vegetables are home grown. We often have family visitors, especially our grandchildren. We have been Couchsurfing hosts for several years but we now seek visitors for a longer stay.
Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
General help and some of it quite heavy especially in the garden. Help can vary from collecting seaweed from the shore to harvesting vegetables and processing wood fuel.
You can have a double or single room in the house or accommodation in our barn (two beds).
There are no shops or pubs but there are lively community entertainments. However, there are plenty of outside activities such as walking, climbing and swimming.
Public transport is very limited but it is sometimes possible to get a lift with a neighbour to Ullapool or Inverness.
We have a big kitchen-living room where we spend most of our evenings chatting, reading or watching tv.
