  • Description


    I live on a small farm in the West of Scotland with a flock of sheep and a handful of Aberdeen Angus cattle. There are lots of recreational opportunities close by, with walks, golf, fishing and sailing available. Glasgow is a 20 minute drive and Edinburgh a further hour on the train. I need help mostly with light outdoor tasks tho a bit of cooking would be much appreciated!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am well educated and enthusiastic about the beautiful part of the world i live in. I enjoy the exchange of cultural ideas and I believe the workawayers who have visited have also enjoyed this and we have all benefited. I live quite close to the city of Glasgow which offers the best shopping experience outside of London and attracts all the major concerts ranging from pop to classical. There is always some event in progress and of course Edinburgh is within easy travelling distance and offers the unrivalled Festival and fringe. There are numerous museums and galleries in the area and it truly is a great place to visit..

  • Help


    I would really appreciate some help with the interior design of my farmhouse which I am in the process of renovating. I am hopeless at this and always seem to get the colours wrong! The outdoor would be light in nature with the garden and round the house needing help. Again some imagination would be appreciated.
