I am new to airbnb, a self employed artist working when I can on portraits in clay and paintings both on the theme of 'Of the Land'. Love having my two little grandchildren nearby, trying to encourage my poytunnel to grow food, exploring ancient places and countryside and hearing live music ,mostly locally traditional and roots whenever possible. I try to make guests welcome ( I have been managing the holiday cottage for a few years) as inviting ,as cosy as possible (it is Scotland!) and give as much local info as wanted . Myself and my partner have lived here for 35 years in the Easter Cairngorms and love it's remoteness but we do live up a steep lane , 3 miles from a main road so need a car. Winters can sometimes be severe and snowy but just a really beautiful, peaceful place to live .
