Help start up the organic garden and reinvent the orchard in the walled garden.My name is Maggi Simpson and for the last 12 years my partner and i I have been renovating and getting the house together, running on enthusiasm. doing the roof, garden and insulating the rooms. We have a Chihuahua and two sheep, Ecki and Kissi who keep the grass down and live in the chicken shed! We welcome people to come and experience this beautiful landscape and learn how to work within a community, with others , for a common goal. To produce a place of peace.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can stay in a Victorian summer villa on the edge of a Scottish sea Loch an hour away from Glasgow, Scotland. The property backs onto a native wooded hill, which runs into a pine forest for instant access to hill walking, where you will find red deer and red squirrels, and see amazing views. You can participate in Yoga an use the infrared sauna and learn relaxation.skills. We have Kayaks to take out on the loch. I offer a massage to everybody who stays for a month.
