  • Description


    We are a family living in Scotland who are looking for someone to help out with around the house and garden.

    I'm a university graduate working in a local restaurant, my dad is a joiner and my mum is a pottery painter. My brother is autistic and has special needs but he's a very friendly boy with lots of interests and who loves to volunteer in the local community.

    We would love to make a new friend and offer a comfortable place to stay for someone who'd be interesting in staying in a new place. We also have an old cat who is very friendly and spends most of her time inside. I'm afraid that this is a no smoking household so anyone who smokes would have to do it outside.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live in a beautiful Scottish Highland village, surrounded by lovely scenery so if you are interested in hiking or mountain climbing, we have plenty of that to offer.

    There is a leisure centre, several restaurants and beautiful stony and sandy beaches. Perfect for anyone who wants a break from bustling cities and get a breath of fresh air.

    We do lots of home cooking which includes baking and healthy meals. There is a bus that takes you to a larger village and from there, you can reach a city two hours from where we live.
