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:
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
Pratique d’une langue
Bricolage et projets de construction
Cuisine/repas pour la famille
Aide à la maison
Workaways will have the opportunity to be taught clay shooting and off road driving skills. Basic flight instruction and potentially gliding. I also run a busy engineering consultancy specialising in Zero Carbon design and implementation.
Bus service to village, Bikes available for loan, Good park and ride service to Edinburgh. - Good area for hill walking, country walks , loch walks - on Scottish cycle network. It is Idyllic in Summer - It is miserable in Winter
