I really enjoyed my time at DBH. I was welcomed by an amazing host team and I met some fantastic fellow volunteers who have now become friends for life! All the tasks are very easy and you'll get enough time to visit other places in Scotland. So, to other volunteers I'd say: do not hesitate and come and stay at DBH. It will be one of the best experiences of your life.
