Artist and writer's home in a large historic 18th century country house, with beautiful gardens set in extensively wooded grounds with a stream, close to popular village near Loch Ness, Highlands of Scotland. Non-smokers, cat lovers. We are friendly, well travelled and offer a warm welcome by a roaring open fire. We muddle along in a few languages and enjoy helping anyone who wants to improve their English. Every season is a beautiful time in the Highlands with the forests and the glens changing colour: current projects include internal and external cleanup, repair and redecoration, major garden maintenance, preparation, planting, some tree pruning, log splitting and maybe some garden structural alterations. We like cooking, are part time vegetarians and love it when workaway guests cook.
