    We are a family of six living in a picturesque Highlands village in Scotland with our three cats and two Setters, Hugo & Roux. The house is a large six bedroomed Georgian place with a wealth of character and a countryside style well established garden. Volunteers will have their own bedroom and are welcome to join us for meals as a family. The area we live in has so many attractions for visitors, from beautiful beaches and historic castles to an award winning ice cream parlour and a world famous Salmon river. There is something for everyone here.

    As we grew up locally and have both lived in this area for the majority of our lives we know a great deal about its history and the best places to visit during your stay.

    At the moment we are working on the playroom, a portion of the hallway and one of the bedrooms. The work to be done largely consists of stripping/sanding woodwork, plastering and painting. We have some issues with the exterior of the building so we would be over the moon to hear from anyone who is a qualified builder or stonemason who has time to spare next summer; anyone who could remove the cement render from the exterior of the building and repair the stonework would be welcome for a long stay. As the house is so old there are numerous little general maintenance type jobs that need to be done. For example: fixing sash windows, putting up shelves, repainting exterior paintwork, fixing doors, stripping wallpaper etc. We would expect a volunteer to put in 5 hours a day, 5 days a week.

    We highly recommend visiting the walled garden at Gordon Castle while you are here and the beaches at Lossiemouth. Moray is Whisky country and there are well over thirty distilleries here, which can be toured. We are happy to provide transport to you on my partners days off.
