We are a busy house and workaway help allows us family time, which we share with our workaway friends. We often enjoy trips to Oban and the chocolate shop. There is lots of time off in between flurries of activity ensuring you will have plenty of time to travel and enjoy Scotland. This is a true cultural exchange. Walking the dogs also helps us a lot. We have three spaniels.
We are a family who enjoy living in the wonderful historic market town of Crieff in Perthshire which is centrally located in Scotland. Workaway enriches our life. We are looking for a lovely individual, occasionally couples, to share our workaway experience. As an experienced host family, we can offer a good happy, balanced experience, where we both can both enjoy and share our home and our time.
We are designers who have an interesting home, which was historically a whisky distillery, we are gradually converting this and presently rent a part of this as a self catering holiday let, as we are in the heart of our town we open our doors annually to act as a venue for our local arts festival. We enjoy participating and love meeting our self catering holiday guests, who arrive as guests and leave as friends.

We prefer individuals over the age of 25, (we have had younger independent mature individuals) who are mature and not afraid of ironing, hard work, dogs, gardening and are independent. If you feel that you have the maturity to be with us, please contact us.
We have many projects happening, we know we can offer various options we cannot expect our workaway to do everything, but perhaps there is a specialty you have which may be included in our cooperation.
We offer the best bedroom in the house, it is large with double bed, sofabed and furniture, WIFI. Good food, made by me.
We welcome new recipes. We will introduce you to our friends and family and show you around. You will have time to travel and enjoy Scotland. Some days our workaway, works a little more and takes days off to go travelling.
