Hi, my name is Emma Watson.
I live in the Scottish Highlands with my family, I love travelling and cooking.
I started using Airbnb 6 years ago to rent a flat in Venice and found that my experience was an around success. I started renting my accommodation in the Scottish Highlands 18 months ago and have been really happy with the guests and their feedback.
The aim for me is quite simple, offering clean, warm, comfortable accommodation.
I'd be happy to recommend places to visit, the best place for any outdoor pursuits and where to eat out with your friends and loved-ones.
I'll do all I can to make your stay comfortable, personalised and very special.
I look forward to welcoming you and helping you discover the Scottish Highlands.
