  • Description


    We are a family of five living in a picturesque Highlands village in Scotland with our three cats and English Setters, Hugo. The house is a large six bedroomed Georgian place with a wealth of character undergoing a complete renovation. Private bedroom will be provided and we very much hope that you will be like a member of our 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. We would ideally like someone who can commit to staying for a year and who can be flexible due to our unusual work commitments.

    Mainly we require childcare help for our three children who are in full time school. We have unusual work schedules so flexibility is key. It’s really important to us to find someone who is a good fit with our family and we look forward to welcoming you into our lives.
