  • Description

    Hi we are Amber and Grace, two Scottish lassies just finished University in Edinburgh and looking to spend our summer exploring and having adventures! We are two best friends looking forwards to spending lots of time outside, learning new skills and benefiting the environment and nature at the same time. Between us we have volunteered with environmental projects, including construction, and farms. We are not afraid of hard work or challenges and would love to learn more about everything that is eco-friendly and sustainable, while meeting new people! We play lots of music and would be happy to bring our fiddle and guitar along to play some tunes. We are also very outdoorsy people who enjoy being active, whether this is cycling, hillwalking, wild swimming, or surfing.
