The principals will visit with their family and friends throughout the year, 2 – 3 months in total and their family and friend will also visit independently in small groups of 6 maximum (all professionals).


The family have children, 2 at University and the youngest is now 14. They home is a base for them in Scotland as they love outdoor pursuits and have friends in Scotland and Europe. They have a very healthy lifestyle and wish to attract a couple who are likeminded.

An opportunity like this is very rare in Edinburgh and therefore we are looking for a very high calibre of applicant.
