Ooh I love Falkland. We stayed there for a couple of nights a few years ago. We just kind of picked it out of a hat, because it was close to Cupar where my cousin lives, not realizing where we were going. Then, months later, I was watching the first season of Outlander and realized we stayed in the same hotel!
I just noticed, I have had your sit favourited for awhile now.
Hi @RaeJ and welcome aboard, I am Tamy from Italy. I’d like to favourite your listening, you described it as a marvellous place with a super lovely pet Visiting Scotland (Outlander locations) is definitely on my bucket list.
I’m also in Scotland (though further South, near Dumfries and Galloway). I spent some time in your region last year and had to comment on the organic shop! If it is the one I’m thinking of (PoH), it is incredible! I especially like the chocolate bombs after the glorious scenic walks. Anyway, wishing you the best of luck in finding a suitable sitter, I doubt you’ll have any difficulty!
What a lovely introduction @RaeJ. You might only be relatively new to THS but you’ve been experiencing a similar lifestyle both as an owner and a sitter.
Love Scotland and have been fortunate to visit a number of times over the last 40 years. My Scottish ancestry keeps drawing me back! In 2017 I enjoyed over 6 weeks of pet sitting for 3 different owners in different locations which was wonderful. This year I’ll purely be a tourist and am finally going to the Edinburgh Tattoo.
Would definitely be interested in sitting for you another year and I’ll look forward to viewing your listing.
Like you, it’s been a long wait but finally we’re able to travel overseas again (I’m in Australia). Enjoy your family visit to California and we’ll look forward to reading more of your adventures from you.
It won’t let me print what we used to call it!
Windygates is a lovely place as well. The problem with Windygates is the school memories. Our BHS bus went through it twice a day and if we got stopped at the traffic lights there was a lot of abuse from the KHS lot. The rivalry was so bad we weren’t allowed to play hockey or rugby against them which was a pity because the schools were so close.
It’s really a small world…
We’ve never made it to Australia but it’s certainly on our list - we have a few friends there who we’d love to visit.
Sounds like you’ve had some lovely stays in Scotland - so many different bits to explore aren’t there.
I’m so looking forward the the Edinburgh Festival restarting this year. We absolutely love it and have been to the Tattoo a couple of times (Take a cosy blanket )
That’s great that you’d be interested in our listing in the future. Look forward to that.
Yes, VERY much looking forward to returning to California. We normally visit our son and his wife at the start and end of our trip (they live near San Francisco) and also fit in a home exchange to explore other areas and they come to visit for a weekend - works beautifully. Would be keen to do a pet sit too using THS as we very much miss having a dog around when we travel.
If anyone is searching for our listing and you type in Falkland LOADS of homes appear that are not actually in Falkland - think we’re the only ones. But the dates we need a sitter for is 25th May - 9th June so that narrows things down.
