  • Description


    I live in an intentional, international well-known community/developing eco-village, on the north east coast of Scotland in the UK.

    There are about 400 people living here and we have many guests/visitors each year. Some live/stay in mobile homes e.g. caravans, we also have bungalows/chalets, and small & large eco-houses. Many are privately owned. (The 'rainbow photograph' shows a small part of one of the larger eco-houses & as you can see, we sometimes have some amazing rainbows : ) ) To explain how the community works would take ages and really it's something one has to experience oneself - those who feel drawn to coming here! Diversity is what makes it such an interesting, inspiring place to live/visit. It can also be quite challenging.

    My particular interests include: nature/animals, the beach, walking, cycling, dancing, singing, listening to music, reading, and what some would call spiritual things, e.g. consciousness. And I am nourished by all these things by living here!

    It is a lovely part of the world, right beside the bay, with woods, sand-dunes, the sea and beach nearby. There are many seals here, there's a bird hide, and you might spot dolphins....

    We have a general store with apothecary, cafe, library, art centre, dance/drama studio, pottery, meditation sanctuaries, etc.

    The nearest village is a 2 minute bike ride away (15 minute walk) with a shop/post office, 2 pubs/restaurants, cafe's, bakery, boatyard/water-sports activities.

    The nearest city (& airport) is Inverness (home/area of the famous Loch Ness Monster!!)
    Second is Aberdeen, then Edinburgh & Glasgow.

    This is an opportunity to come to experience living in an intentional community.
    Also, to explore this lovely part of Scotland. Some say that Scotland is the last great wilderness of the UK, especially further north, in the highlands.....

    A place to relax and chill for a while.
