Accommodation Wanted
I am a Christian, fluent Gaelic speaker and a Gaelic student currently at Sabhal Mòr and have just been given a job in Stornoway, starting on the 3rd of June 2019. I am currently looking for accommodation in Stornoway and would be most grateful if anyone had a place, or knows someone who does, that I could rent in town. I would be looking to move in around the 27th of May. I can be contacted on: [email protected]. Your help would be much appreciated! God bless. Jamie.
