  • Description


    Liz & Finlo live in the beautiful town of Oban on the west coast of Scotland. We love anything outdoors, particularly on the water (sailing, paddle boarding) and in the hills (hiking, mountain biking, skiing). We have two wonderful sons (12 & 14 yrs), who love meeting new people from all walks of life. We are both marine researchers, who love to interact with students & colleagues from all over the world and we are very excited to join Workaway as a host.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We will be happy to have our workawayer with us at evening meals, so that they can improve their English language skills and experience the round the table 'chat' that our family enjoys each day. We are also involved in many different clubs (e.g., sailing, skiing, climbing, Scottish Ceilidh dancing, orienteering, mountain biking, Gaelic, Oban Bagpipe band, West Coast Strings Orchestra) and would offer our workawayer the opportunity to join us in these activities. My husband and I also work for the University of the Highlands and Islands, so teach over 50 Scottish and international students each year. We would, therefore, make sure that our workawayer was introduced to these students and that they had the opportunity to join in with their activities.

  • Aide


    We have an elderly (76yrs) mother with dementia, who is recovering from a broken ankle, she will hopefully be able to take care of herself once she returns home for a short residential stay at a local care home, but it would be great to have someone help make her meals & provide companionship.

    We also have a large garden & some ongoing landscaping/construction projects that we need help with this year.

  • Langues

    Langues parlées
    Anglais: Courant

    Cet hôte propose un échange linguistique
    My sons are both learning French/Spanish at school, so it would be great to welcome a helper with these languages, but this is not essential.

  • Hébergement


    One bedroom flat, double, with excellent facilities and amazing view over Oban Bay. Fully fitted kitchen for food preparation, but you would be more than welcome to join us for evening meals prepared by us.
