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

I'm glad to have met Ian and Priscecil in my journey. Ian is a person who is open to share his experiences and wisdom as well as Priscecil have a spark that make people feel like home. For me was an experience of opportunity sharing, contribution and serenity. House of Mark is a place with principles and incredible landscapes. I really hope that I help you the best I could and gave a good contribution, it was fun to be a handyman for a period of time. I'll be forever grateful to both of you, you really made me feel like a son. I'll miss everything about this place. Hope to come back someday!
