I don’t even know what to say, what a wonderful place, I had a great long time there and I can say it’s my second home now.
Everyone so welcoming and lovely, I made good friends.
The job isn’t hard, just can’t say that about the bunk beds 😂.
Thank you Irene, Georgia, and Chris for everything, I’ll miss u all mainly Hamish and Malk 🥰.
I’m certainly coming back, hopefully very soon.
I wish you all the bests, thank you ☺️

Dalavich is beautiful and the people are very friendly. The work is not difficult and the cities around it are charming. I thank everyone for the teachings and patience with me and you can be sure I will never forget this experience that entered the best moments of my life. I will miss everyone and the lovely dogs. God bless them!

My second time at Mrs. Irene home. It was a great pleasure to be there again. We get along great, just like I got along with her right handman, Chris.
About the work it's something simple: cleaning cabins and changing some sheets. It starts at 10am and goes until 1:30pm~2pm. After that we got lunch time and get back to some laps with her dogs.
The beginning is difficult as usual as we have the time difference which affects me badly.
A PS for people that never heard about scottish people: don't be late, do your duty and try to understand their accent.
Dalavich is my second home.

This was my first volunteer experience and it was just wonderful. Irene is an amazing person, friendly, respectful and welcoming. She made me feel at home. Irene's friends are so nice and sociable too. The work isn't hard and walk the dogs is just perfect if you enjoy nature... There are a lot of beautiful paths nearby, you can easily see the falls or the loch. I highly recommend this experience. Thanks for eveything Irene, Georgia and Lauren, I really appreciate the time that I've spend with you. And a special kiss to Iona, one of the most lovely kids I've ever met <3

Irene is an incredible host and she makes you feel at home from the second you arrive. The work isn’t hard nor time consuming, so it gives you plenty of free time to go out on hikes with Malky and Hamish (two lovely dogs). You’re able to travel to Oban by bus and from there you can take the ferrie to any of the islands. This was my first experience as a volunteer, and it was excellent. Everyone in the village is so friendly and are always willing to help out or just have a chat with you. Thank you SO MUCH Irene, Georgia, Lauren and everyone I got to know in Dalavich for an amazing experience!
