    I run art holidays in the Spring and Autumn from my home/studio and am a working artist
    and printmaker, selling work locally and putting on exhibitions.

    I love to cook and have been a wallpaper designer and manufacturer most of my life. I originally
    trained as an architect and have a great love of old buildings. I have decorated the house that I
    live in mostly myself.

    The house has five bedrooms a large studio and a high kitchen plus a very comfortable sitting
    room. There is a wonderful large kitchen with an a AGA and all modern conveniences, including a
    dishwasher.

    My daughter is an upholsterer and upcycles furniture and industrial equipment and lives near by.
    We both have online rental people staying most weeks and will soon have a holiday cottage up and running
    in Bellanoch near Crinan on the Crinan Canal.

    There is always a lot going on, we never seem to be without a long list of projects and jobs to do.

    This is a happy house that loves people and we have good parties.

    This is a beautiful part of Scotland and is close to Islay which is known for its whisky. There are surfing beaches and kayaking opportunities. Lots of walking and gorgeous scenery for artists and painters.

    Tarbert is the local village which has a lots going on including a host of various festivals during the Summer. There are cafes and pubs many of which host bands year round. The people are friendly and hospitable and there would be many opportunities for cultural exchanges.

    The is large and the garden is an old walled garden so would value some help. The major task that I need
    help with is the garden and also a few jobs around the house. The garden is nearly an acre and I have only
    tamed half of it so lots of work need to make it beautiful. I have a ride on mower and use of a greenhouse.

    Gardening - removing small trees and extending the vegetable garden. Mowing and planting new shrubs.
    possibly building a rockery. The front garden needs some shrubs clearing and some grass seeded
    or turfed.
    General Maintenance. - A small amount of decorating - nothing major and sorting out the basement.
    Help in the house - general house cleaning a little hoovering - laying a fire - cleaning bathrooms.
    Art project - I am happy to share techniques with those who are interested.

    There would be a private bedroom with a double bed and a shared bathroom. I would be happy to supply most
    of the food, I like to cook, but would be happy to share this task occasionally and also learn another countiries cuisine.

    The house is 0.5 miles up a farm track which is a turning off the A83 main road to Campbeltown. There are regular buses to Tarbert / Lochgilphead / Inveraray / Glasgow and Campbeltown.

    The house that I live in is a part of a much larger house which was divided in four sections in the 1950's with five families living fairly close together (one in a new house on the old tennis court).

    People are always coming and going and there would be opportunities to hitch a ride with some of them when they are travelling to local places. I have to say that most people here are retired but they have a varied social life with friends, and family visiting quite often.

    The local community is mostly farming and fishing, but there are many people are involved in the tourist business and yachting as there is a large marina in Tarbert.

    I have lived here for 10 years and have built up a circle of friends many of whom are artists.
