  • Beschreibung


    We are a friendly, Scottish couple who live in beautiful Royal Deeside. We have two kids. Our daughter (29) returned from Canada where she was on a 2 year working visa with her boyfriend. They got engaged on Xmas eve and she now works as the Sustainability Manager in Nottingham. Our son (28) was working for an NGO in West Africa, but contracted a near fatal cerebral malaria. He is now well and in Rwanda where he is the CEO of a small effective charity that he founded, Children of Rwanda.
    We also have an 11 month old Border Collie puppy. She loves long walks and never tires of balls and sticks.
    We live just outside Ballater, which is a thriving village surrounded by the Cairngorm National Park. We are involved with different community groups, including climate action and organising the walking festival.There are fantastic walks and mountain bike trails, plenty of nature to see, as well as castles, including Balmoral where the Queen spends her holidays.
    Graham has a compromised immune system so we have to be very careful about who we can take as a workaway. We would need to ensure that applicants are double vaccinated and hopefully boostered too.
    We spent 14 years in France where we ran a B&B and English language holiday camps/courses for French teenagers. It was great fun, so of course we can help you with your English.

    We love having people to stay, and showing them our wonderful area. So if you are fit and healthy, we are looking for people who can help us in the garden, planting up veggie beds, refelting and repairing some sheds and if it's cold or wet outside, we have some decorating to do, so we hope to keep you busy with varied tasks, while keeping you well fed and happy! We would particularly like to host someone with chain saw experience.

    Ballater is in the Cairngorm National Park, so ideal for walkers and mountain bikers.
    There is a bus service to Aberdeen from just outside our door. The village is only 1.7 miles away, so walkable, or there is the bus or jump in our car when we are going.
    We have two good mountain bikes available.
