  • Descripción


    Scottish Highland village in a traditional house (converted byre) with overgrown garden. Some help with DIY etc. in house also welcome. Beautiful location, good for hill-walkers. Strong local community culture, which will hopefully soon re-emerge after the pandemic. Emphasis on environmentally-friendly living and sustainability.

    German and Spanish are very rusty, and desire to get French up to a much higher level. A former language teacher, so can help with those languages I know, including minority ones.
