We live in a rural area, 35 miles from the main town of Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis. Stornoway is a one hour flight from Glasgow or Edinburgh, or a 6 hour bus journey and three hour ferry journey. We live in a very beautiful location, overlooking a vast sandy beach with mountain views behind.  When the weather is good, there really is nowhere more beautiful possibly in the world.  However, we do get a lot of windy and wet weather so the au pair should be prepared to bunker down when the weather is bad and make the most of it when the weather is good.  As such,the au pair would be happier if they enjoy the outdoors and are reasonably self contained. We have a small boat, windsurfers and a kayak which would be available to use. We will provide access to our car.
