  • Description

    Description

    We are a highland family living in an old Victorian House. We have guests coming and going from all parts of the world which is exciting. We have a wee 1 bedroom cottage in the garden which we rent out also.
    Summer holidays are fun with projects on the go and 2 boys to entertain - but not all of the time !
    Life is for living and having adventures too !

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Wonderful amount of exploring to do along the coast Eat and West. UP into the hills or along the rivers.
    Would be good if you had your own car or have a driving licence but not a total necessity. There is an occasional bus service and there are always plenty of lifts from locals and of course us. and we have bikes !
