Hello hello ! Our home is off the beaten track right out in the countryside , along side of the Monadhliath mountains , just a few miles from beautiful Loch Ness
Set in 5 acres and surrounded by rugged farm land with views all round & lochs within walking distance of the house
it’s very quiet with no passing traffic ( no shops 15 miles!) and no public transport
In fact, please make sure that this rural area is suitable for you as it is so quiet! If you enjoy walking, peace and quiet and nature then this IS perfect for you
I am 50 yrs old and have three children ( 13 8 & 9 )
I work as a foster carer ( a PVG certificate, or equivalent , for working with children would be helpful if possible .)
We have an organised home & the children enjoy a structured lifestyle so I have to say , they are very well behaved & polite
They are fluent in Gaelic and attend the Gaelic school in Inverness
We would love someone who is super child friendly to come and teach French , German or Spanish and also do some cooking - we love trying any new foods

We have a cat 16 ,hens, 5 ducks and 2 mini pigs
There is an abundance of wildlife here . We have pheasants and hares which often come up to the door to be fed
there are always red kites above the garden and deer too
We are fairly remote with the closest bus service 15 miles away in Inverness
I would be happy to take you to Inverness where you would be free to explore or you could hire a car locally
There are walks through the fields right on the doorstep
We have provision for hook up for a motor home / camper van
