    We have had many volunteers over the years. They are treated as one of the family and I take them on trips to show them the countryside. We work together in the garden. There is always something to do as we have a large garden. Chopping wood is one of the jobs that needs to be done, so there is enough wood for the fires for the winter.
    We have 2 dogs.

    When you have your time off there is a bus that goes into Stirling or I can take you to the station so you could go to Edinburgh or elsewhere nearby. There are lots of walks - you could take the dogs - they would love you for ever, if you did! There are also two bikes that can be used.

    There are lots of volunteers in the area through different organisations and I try to introduce them and sometimes get them to dinner with their hosts
