House of Mark

We seek students or students who have recently completed their degree to apply for one month’s vocational work experience. This is an exciting and interesting opportunity. Over 400 students have visited House of Mark who tell us they have loved being here, many return. We arrange reunions all over the world, students visit other students from all over the world.

House of Mark, is a fabulous guest house nestling amongst the glens. Formerly a manse, open all year and set within two acres at the foot of the Cairngorms National Park. House of Mark also has a self-catering cottage (House of Mark Cottage) and hostel accommodation is coming soon. The work required is very varied and you will have time to visit other parts of Scotland during your time here. The chores would consist mainly of helping with every aspect of running a guests’ house and maintain the guest satisfaction. Housekeeping is the main workload and we are quite fastidious in cleanliness. Apart from all the household chores, we have a dog who loves nothing more than being walked. So we hope you are an animal lover? We also have a large garden and gardening is always on the agenda. Help in this department is never refused.

House of mark was amazing!
This beautiful place offered me and all the students the opportunity to learn, have fun and get to know a part of Scotland with incredible landscapes. Ian, a funny and knowledgeable man, always worried about making us have a good time. Here I learned a lot with the exterior and interior tasks because there is always something different to do. The bike rides, hiking and walking with lola (dog) made my stay in angus very pleasant. No doubt an experience that I would repeat.

House of Mark is located in a very beautiful place . The nature is amazing there. Lots of animals, rivers, mountains. There we could see snow for the first time in our lives! Unforgettable! The house is very cozy, warm and the volunteers' rooms are good. The meals were great too. Ian is a very generous person and always attentive. Thank you
