Our home

Our home is modern but has the character of an older house. It is situated in an older part of town rather than a modern estate. It is awash with light from the large windows. The house has central heating and our cosy living room also has a wood stove. The kitchen is very well equipped as we love to cook. There is also a large dining room on the ground floor. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room. There is also a bathroom upstairs. The enclosed garden is very sunny - when the sun shines!, and completely private. It is a great spot for sun bathing. In the summer we eat outdoors on the patio, which is equipped with table, chairs and a barbeque. Please note - we don't have a TV. We do have a computer with broadband internet; a stereo and lots of CDs; fishing equipment; as well as lots of books, games, puzzles and toys for all ages.

Who we are

  1. We, Ishbel and Ian, are both in our late fifties and have recently retired from teaching at a local secondary school, working with children with behavioural problems. We have six family between us - all over 26 who will not be traveling with us. We have now completed thirteen exchanges altogether and looking forward to the next. We are both interested in outdoor activities and enjoy walking, climbing, cycling, fishing. We also like historic places. If you are interested in an exchange, we will leave equipment for fishing and climbing for you, maps and details of where its best to go. It may be possible to exchange cars. We drive an old, (but reliable) Fiat Punto.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Ellon is a small town built on the banks of the river Ythan, a well known salmon river. If you take a walk along the riverbank you might spot the otters that live there. Brackenlea sits in a quiet street in the centre of Ellon within a few minutes walking of restaurants, shops, swimming pool, play park, golf course and sports complex. Our neighbours are very friendly and will help you find your way around. From Ellon it is only a short 15 minute drive into Aberdeen where you will find cinemas, museums, art gallery, restaurants, and shopping centres. Aberdeen also has transport links with the rest of Scotland if you want to travel further afield. This part of Scotland has miles of beautiful coastline ranging from pristine sandy beaches to dramatic cliffs all teaming with wildlife. This area is also renowned for its castles. Why not come and explore the history of Scotland through the wonderfully restored castles of the north east? The Scottish highlands are a 45 minute drive and you can visit the Queen's holiday castle at Braemar. Ellon is perfectly located for all kinds of activities for all ages. If your interests lie in clinging to cliffs with your fingernails, cycling through quiet forest tracks, wrestling a salmon fom the river, or quietly reading a book in the sunny garden, why not get in touch.
