    Beschreibung

    We are a family of 3 our son is 14 years old (typical teenager) We live on a smallholding in SW Scotland with a pig and sheep. In the house we also have two cats and dog.
    We enjoy going to the beach, boating, and the outdoor life. The area is very rural and friendly, great for cycling and walking.
    We would like our son to experience different cultures and hear first hand about the wider world,this is a little more difficult now teenage years have arrived.

    We are about 1km from the beach and sea and nearest village. We are very rural so there is little to no night life, no restaurants, shops and only 1 pub! We have lots of nature, peace and tranquillity though!

    We have a lot of upkeep around the property, painting during wet days, the garden needs some work to get rid of the weeds, we also have wood that needs to be moved and stacked. The house always could do with an extra clean and attention. We enjoy our surroundings using the boat and swimming on nice days- even on wet days.

    We will be happy to show you the area when we are out and about restrictions allowing.
    The help is not hard but it is important that you are able to do it alone sometimes, we normally set a task in the morning and you are free in the afternoons but need a bit of flexibility.

    We would be happy to arrange and pay for a day trip to Northern Ireland if you are with us for over 3 weeks Covid allowing. :)
    Lockdown has limited the amount of visits out, we have great walks/cycles from the house and are in a very quiet area.
    We need to have a police check from your own country prior to you arriving as we have to gain approval to accept you, this is not our rule, or a reflection on you but a council obligation that we have to do as we have foster children staying sometimes.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We would love to introduce you to the smallholding way of life, experience rural Scottish life, and gain experience with animals and gardening. We will provide 3 meals a day and introduce you to the occasional Scottish dish. We don't provide alcohol but are happy for you to buy and drink your own. When possible we will be able to take day trips around the area which is steeped in history. We make sure you feel part of the family and treat you as such, your English will improve and you may even gain some new Scottish dialect! We would be happy to arrange and pay for a day trip to Northern Ireland on the ferry if you are with us for over 3 weeks (Covid permitting). We are flexible so if you wanted to go away for a week or so we can be used as a base to come back to.

    Volunteers can help with general maintenance of the smallholding feeding, fencing, tractor maintenance and hay making in late summer. We also have a large garden so grass cutting , cutting back, weeding and some digging. We need to do some regular maintenance in the house so general diy painting etc. We have had a few tree's blow over so need to have them cleared, chopped and stacked and the small branches cleared. We also have a lot of wood that needs cut, split and stacked. We would love someone who was handy with mechanics, we have older tractors that need attention, but enthusiastic helpers are also needed.
