    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As we are set in the heart of the highlands you would experience the true beauty of Scotland. Inverness and Aviemore are accessable by bus, where there are a range of activities to do, especially outdoor. We would love someone to be part of the family so you can experience our way of life as well as us learning about your culture. I am a well travelled person and gain so much from other peoples cultures and knowledge.
    Our guests come from far and wide and probably from your country, it would be a huge advantage to have someone able to relate to some of our guests as well as gain an experience from other countries.
