  • Description


    I live just outside the coastal village of Culross, a 17 century village, overlooking the Firth of Forth in Scotland. There is a Palace, Abbey, pub and several cafes in the village.

    I am Linda, a female 56 year old dental hygienist and live with my 2 children in a pleasant and comfortable bungalow.

    I would appreciate help with fence painting etc and cutting back shrubbery if the weather is dry or some internal decoration if it's raining.
    I have 2 bedrooms available. One a single and one a double with a shared shower room.
    I'm a fairly good cook and friendly and sociable.
    Depending on weather and how long you could stay for, I would appreciate 2 to 5 hours a day.

    Culross is a lovely old village where some of Outlander was filmed. We are between Glasgow, Edinburgh and Stirling so great for sightseeing.
    We are all friendly and sociable and would be glad to meet new people.
    I speak basic Italian.
