  • Description

    Description

    My husband and I live in a restored farmhouse over-looking Loch Leven, on the outskirts of the village of Milnathort, near Kinross, Scotland. The surrounding area has wonderful walks and wild-life, but we are also within easy reach of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth, St. Andrews, the Fife coast and many other places of interest. We have two grown-up children working in London, a dog, and an outdoor cat.

    Help

    On June 3rd I am having surgery on my shoulder. I will be in a sling for 4 weeks and unable to drive for 6 weeks. I really need help to do all the things at home that I would normally do. Even a couple of weeks' help would be marvellous. A car driver with your own car would be helpful.

    What else ...

    There is good local transport to the major cities near us; for example, the megabus to Edinburgh takes about 45 mins. Train stations at Perth and Inverkeithing are both 20 mins drive away and link to Edinburgh, and elsewhere, but a driver with own car would be an advantage. There is masses to do in the area: outdoor pursuits, wildlife, Art galleries, museums, lovely beaches at St. Andrews and the east coast of Fife, and Edinburgh and Glasgow have much to offer.
