  • Description


    Hi we are Roberta & Duncan we live in a small rural village in Scotland called Dalavich near Oban. Our village is very friendly and a lovely community to live in. We live on the side of Loch Awe which is a beautiful fresh water loch. There are lots of woodland walks nearby and is very peaceful. There is a social club and shop/cafe in the village. Duncan works on a farm and I am retired. We would welcome someone to help us look after our 3 very active dogs and also help in the garden. In return we will treat you as one of the family and hopefully help you with your English.
