  • Descripción


    Professional degree qualified engineer, director and business owner, running business between Scotland and Ireland. I am very limited free time and requires a little bit of help bring the maintenance of my garden and large house up to scratch.

    Property is 15 minutes North of Edinburgh by car, located in a beautiful part of rural Scotland. , 20 minutes by cycle from a beautiful loch and cycle route. Workaways will have the opportunity to fly light aircraft and that will appeal to some with an interest in aviation or flight.

    Principal reason s for exchange are of course:

    language practice.
    share recipes and cook their favourite dishes
    teaching and learning of new flying skills
    Small gardening or DIY projects which we can do together to learn new skills
