    • Long term furnished accomodation

      Scotland Jul 16, 2014 at 9:38 AM

      Having a difficult time finding something that would fit our "dreams" (fantasies?). We are a newly retired couple in our 60's with a small dog (10 lbs, well-behaved). We hope to stay in Scotland for 4 months, mid-May to mid-Sept. 2015. Ideally we would like to rent an en-suite room in a home of a mature couple, widow or widower. It needs to be on a bus line as we won't have a car. Ideal locations are Edinburgh, Perth or Ayr. We would like to work on geneology, share stories with our host(s), cook, walk the dog, get to know the neighbors & community, in general, feel the vibe of living in Scotland. And yes, my ancestors left Glasgow & Ayrshire in the late 1800's, so it's about my roots. Would also consider caring for someone's home (we are actually house sitting at present for 14 months, so will arrive with a good recommendation). Also, wouldn't be opposed to helping with some minor indoor repairs, painting, gardening, animal care, shopping, or cooking.

      any ideas?

      Aberdeen May 21, 2008 at 11:32 AM

      I may have an overnight trip to Aberdeen next weekend. I've stayed in 4 hotels there over the last 5-6 years (Hilton, Holiday Inn Express, Premier Inn & Patio), and wouldn't rush back to any of them. Probably fine if you've just had 3 weeks on an oil rig, but thats as far as it goes.

      I've looked at a few websites, and can't find anything appealing except maybe the Marriott in Dyce. Any ideas anyone?

      I hate "traditional" Scottish places, I'm OK with chains (budget or not) and B&Bs. Like boutique places too.

      So long as its clean, quiet, welcoming and non smoking, I'm flexible on price (on my last trip to the NE I paid £27 bed & breakfast in the local British Legion Club and it was fine; in Brussels last week I paid a good bit more for Le Meridien).

    • Aberdeen for the summer

      Aberdeen Jan 18, 2008 at 4:02 AM

      Myself and a couple of friends are thinking of working for the summer in Britain. There're a few cities we are considering going to and to help us narrow our (very long) list I was just wondering if anyone would like to offer some input as to whether or not Liverpool would be a good choice for the summer.
      We'd be looking for somewhere where
      - Job availibility won't be a problem
      - A decent nightlife for 20 year olds
      - Cheap cost of living, or at least, not expensive
      - There's a nice amount of touristy things to do.

      Really, REALLY appreciate feedback!

    • Cheaper cashmere in Aberdeen area

      Aberdeen Dec 3, 2006 at 1:59 PM

      Hello,

      This is a cheap question but I am holding out some hope there may be someone out there who can help. I was wondering, as so many lovely cashmere products get made in Scotland, is there anyway of buying them cheaper locally in the Aberdeen area rather than paying loads and loads but just loads instead so while I am visiting I can get my sister, who loves quality cashmere, (who doesn't work for a charity!) a christmas present I can near enough afford.

      Any help/tips/advice much apreciated!

    • thinking about moving to Aberdeen and working in Oil and Gas

      Aberdeen Aug 29, 2006 at 9:13 AM

      I have a ton of questions. I am currently living and working in Calgary, Alberta Canada, but I've always wanted to live overseas. What is a decent Salary in Euros there? Where do people typically live, and is it expensive to live in Aberdeen relative to other cities (if you can compare to Cdn cities that would be great, but don't worry about it if you aren't sure).

      I am an oil and gas accountant with 3 yrs experience, what is the job market like there, and do I need to have an offer of employment before I move. How difficult is it to get a work permit/visa?

      Is there anything else that you think I should know before I start preparing to do this?

      I really appreciate any advice you can give me,

      Hi Everyone.

      I'm moving to Aberdeen in August as I've got a job offer over there. My work place would be in Dyce. I need some advice on
      1. where, and
      2. how I can search for accommodation around.

      I'd like to rent a one bedroom apartment, hopefully something below 300 or even 250 pounds per month.

      Alternatively, To be honest, I wouldn't mind staying in a multiple bedroom apartment as well, as long as I can get a private room for myself. If this is the case, what sort of monthly rental can I expect?

      Basically my criteria would be
      1. low cost
      2. safe
      3. near to Dyce

      Please advice yea!

      Thanks a lot everyone!
