The Experience

Hello. We are Caroline and Martin and baby Cormac a small family living in a tiny but beautiful village in Scotland, surrounded by mountains, woodland and lochs. We are looking for a couple who would like to join us here in Dalavich and explore the beauty of rural Scotland while giving us a helping hand in our busy village café.

I can not put in words how special was staying at The nook and work as a volunteer with these guys! Carolinne and Martin are not just nice people, but two amazing hearts. Real people. Cormac, they little soon is so kind and full of love, which reflect the vibe of his parents. I'll be always grateful for the time I had in Dalavich. Specially all the support these guys gave to me when I was without no perspective about my travel after some bad news I received. Thank you a lot, you three! I learned a lot from you and will carry such good memories in my hear wherever I go... 🖤

Participating in The Hook was a spectacular experience. I developed my English and learned other skills like making coffee, pizzas, dealing with customers... Caroline and Martin are amazing, they were always ready to help me and answer my questions. I really want to go back!!!!!!

I cannot tell you enough of how great this experience was! Caroline and Martin did not hesitate to make us feel right at home. They were very aware of the responsibilities agreed to on the app. Its a few hours a day at the cafe which is amazing by the way. They run the cafe so smoothly which made it so enjoyable. After that enjoy the hiking trails, bike rides, and waterfalls. You will have an unbelievable time!

Wow wow wow, my experience at the Nook was absolutely incredible!!! Martin and Caroline were the perfect hosts, providing great, private, and comfortable accommodation in return for easy-to-learn, creative, sometimes hectic, and FUN work at the cafe. My month here flew by with ease and I wish I had the time to stay longer. I truly enjoyed my time here and highly recommend staying here if you get the opportunity!!!

Caroline and Martin (and their cute son Cormac) are lovely people and they really made me feel at home. They would always make sure that we would be comfortable and had fun while working. We had a lot of nice chats during work as well as in the evenings and were able to try Dalavich's best pizza! I can highly recommend Caroline and Martin as hosts and I'm missing my time with these two already. Looking forward to coming back! :)
