Hi... I'm Ben. I own my own consulting company specialising in training and development, and also am a recently qualified Independent Celebrant. I live with my partner Craig, 4 dogs and 2 cats in the beautiful West coast of Scotland.

We are both sociable, love entertaining, cooking and the beautiful countryside we live in.

We aim to design and hardscape our garden to create space for relaxation and enjoyment and will have 2 cabins within the next 2 years.

We both travel for work, me, Ben, a wee bit more due to my consultancy, however I don't like being away more than 3 days a week - I miss my home. Craig travels occasionally however his destinations are far more exciting than mine - Tanzania!

We are both typical Taureans in that once we've tried something and like it we will go back, eat it, visit it again and again - we holiday in Mykonos as often as possible and have done since the eighties - well I have as I'm a bit older than Craig!

Our animals are our family and we hope over the next couple of years to extend the family with chickens and geese, and maybe a goat or 2.

We have eclectic tastes in art and music, TV and film, colours, books, objets. We are bold in our thinking and creativity and the house we believe reflects this - quirky, colourful and bold.

Gardening is my 'escape' and I'm currently hardscaping the gardens to build foundations for cabins, a hidden, sunken terrace, seating areas, and that's all after having created 2 ponds one which feeds the other via a home made stream.

There's much to do and we are happy to share this with guests as they travel , and to meet new people as we travel.
