Located in central inverness I'm a part time teacher (currently teaching biological psychology. My first degree is in Human Physiology and I have a second degree in psychology and philosophy) I enjoy trips out on Loch Ness and West Coast of Scotland in my four berth fast cruiser. Need occasional help with maneuvering the boat on short trips on Caledonian Canal and West Coast of Scotland as well as help with routine chores within my own house and on the boat e.g. Jet washing the boat, cutting the grass. Boat trips allow opportunities for walking, exploring and photography as well as enjoying the great scenery. Excellent opportunity to learn English while exploring great scenery as well as enjoying small city life. I sometimes offer English lessons if required and can make gym membership available to guests staying more than 4 weeks. Based in central Inverness with trips on boat in good weather (longer trips in July than at other times)

Small Single room in house for private use of workaway guest. House also occupied by the owner.
At times a berth on the boat for short trips. This is a small double berth in the main cabin made by folding down the dinette. For short trips on the boat there is therefore less privacy than when staying in Inverness.
See Loch Ness. Go monster spotting. Visit beaches. Opportunities for some hill walking, forest walks and countryside walks. Full range of facilities in Inverness for sport, bars, live music. Attend Highland Games and other local events
