  • Description


    Hello, We live in a house in a large village just 5 miles from Dundee. There is a pub and hotel, a post office, local shop, farm shop and regular buses to the city centre of Dundee.
    I want you to come for a minimum of 1 month but up to 3 months or more.
    I ran an antique restoration business for 23 years and still like to potter around in the workshop occasionally.
    My home is very comfortable and is often busy with children playing and friends and musicians visiting. I love music and go to see my favourite bands and musicians every week. There are always instruments and music in the house.
    I have two small dogs called Bonnie and Maggie.
    I would like someone who could help me in the house, cooking, cleaning, laundry, making beds, gardening and general maintenance and of course dog walking.
    Dundee is a great university town with many sights to see and a great music scene.

    Dundee is a beautiful city built on the estuary of the river Tay. It boasts a world famous University, dental hospital and medical school. The city is thriving and for someone who likes live music, it is wonderful. You would be welcomed into our family and treated as such, we want you to enjoy your stay with us.

  • Help


    Ideally someone who wants to come for a minimum of 2 months. I would like someone who will see a task and just do it... initiative to help when something needs doing ie the dishes, dusting, make beds, vacuuming etc someone who can tidy up in the garden, paint woodwork on outside of house. I have a fully equiped workshop.
    I would like a happy person who will blend in with the family, someone with a good sense of humour.
    I would also like you to come to see our local bands and enjoy our City. Someone who can sing or play the guitar would be great but not necessary and someone who has a good sense of humour. Someone who can blend in like a family member, make cups of tea, clean the bathrooms, kitchen, offer to make lunch or evening meal. Nothing i wouldn't do myself. Things which you would do in your own home and garden. I have had many workaway guests, lots have become longstanding family friends. :-)
