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!

This place is amazing, Irene is a lovely woman that cooks very well and run greats cabins in a awesome village to breath in the nature. Walking with the dogs was the best part of volunteer in Dalavich. The tasks in the cabins were good, I did a lot of gardening (because of coronavirus lockdown) and Irene was helpfull and patient in this moment. I appreciate each day in this place and hope to comeback one day.

Foi de quebrar o coração deixar um lugar como este. Nesse país eu estava sempre cercado por pessoas muito educadas. A senhora Irene e Arianna me trataram como membro da família. Me senti em casa. Saí do meu país cansado de minha rotina e com muito problemas resolvidos, lá eu esqueci que um dia tive eles; foram todos lavados nas chuvas escocesas. Há marcas em seu corpo que um dia desaparecerão, mas há marcas que são causadas em sua alma que são tão profundas que sempre serão sentidas. A atmosfera desse lugar marcou minha alma com coisas boas e para sempre serei grato e eu nunca esquecerei.
