Our Language Hub’s
Keith and Fiona
Meet Keith and Fiona – as well as being retired/ semi-retired professionals, they are makers of amazing pancakes and lovers of art and music.
Both volunteer at the fantastic Strathearn Artspace (which is right next door to Blue Noun).
Their home is beautiful, just a couple of minutes walk away from our school – and they’d love to be Homestay Host during your Blue Noun language course!
Dale and Bob
Dale and Bob live in a 3 story flat with a turret!
They are both semi-retired professionals now turning their hand to all kinds of interesting projects. They love meeting interesting people.
Their home is remarkable, just across the road from our school (no excuse to late here!)
They’d love to be Homestay Host during your Blue Noun language course!
Mhairi’s home is full of charm and peace. It’s a beautiful old Victorian villa, with comfortable bedrooms and a luscious garden and some fabulous art. She lives with her husband and two teenage children (and two cats).
Mhairi is a skilled cook -with vegan food her speciality! It’s a fun, creative household!
She’d love to be your Homestay Host during your Blue Noun English language holiday homestay.
Daisy (and Moss!)
Daisy lives in the beautiful St Fillans, a village on the edge of Loch Earn and surrounded by tall mountains.
Although 20 miles away, Crieff is easily reached by bus from St Fillans, and Daisy has also offered a little help with transportation for her guests.
We’ll get you to class on time!
Daisy and Moss live in a beautiful home. Her guest bedroom is a self-contained little bedsit, with a private entrance (which opens onto some magnificent views!).
She’d love to host you on your Language course with Blue Noun and would be a great person to develop your language skills with too.
Gae and Kim
Gae and Kim live 10- 15 minutes walk away from Blue Noun in a beautiful bright and cosy house. It’s about 100 years old, but the inside is modern and cosy.
Gae and Kim originate from Cambridgeshire originally – they moved to Crieff when they both retired, attracted by the mountains, spectacular scenery and small-town charm. Plus, as they say, it is so central it is easy to travel around Scotland from (which they do with their camper van).
Gae has an academic background and Kim is involved with our local association ‘Crieff in Leaf,’ – a team of volunteers who keep Crieff as green and pretty as it is.
Gae and Kim love meeting new people from different countries – and would love to share their home with you during your English language holiday homestay with us.
Catriona and David
Catriona and David live in a lovely stone Edwardian semi-detached house with their two daschunds (Otto and Rosa) – and an occasional visit from their 20-year-old son.
They have a wonderfully quiet and friendly house (just 10 minutes walk from Blue Noun), and can offer their guests a double bedroom and private bathroom during their stay.
Don’t forget to enjoy a coffee on their terrace, enjoying their beautiful garden with views across to the Ochil Hills.
David is retired Catriona works part-time, and they would love to invite you to eat with them and practice speaking English with them. They are wonderfully friendly people!
Lesley and Gordon
Lesley and Gordon (although very friendly people!) want to invite you to use their private cottage for your accommodation during your English course at Blue Noun English Language School.
This self-contained apartment has two bedrooms, kitchen, sitting room (with wifi and TV) and fantastically appointed bathroom. It has its own entrance and private access to the garden. While it is technically available year-round, they do also host a number of touring classic car enthusiasts throughout the year, so their cottage is only partially available to our learners.
As well as loving vintage cars, Gordon has a leading role with the fantastic Strathearn Artspace (our neighbours), which is currently expanding its arts, film and music programme.
(and about 200 red deer!)
Miranda and Jamie (and up to 3 teenage children) live between Crieff and the village of Comrie in a fabulous large Victorian country house, which they kindly make available to our international language learners.
At least they have plenty of bedrooms to pick from, with around 5 spare rooms available!
As well as being the owners of the fantastic Crieff Food Co. (a delicatessen and store which specialises in local regional produce of Strathearn – and Scotland), the house is set in huge, beautiful grounds and the family-run a red deer farm from this land, supplying the local area with high-quality venison raised in virtually wild conditions.
It’s a great place for animal lovers. They keep dogs (a West Highland terrier and a spaniel) and horses (and are “horse mad”).
They are frequent hosts and, being in the food business can also easily work around any food intolerances of their guests. What an English language holiday homestay!
Aileen, Nick &
the Fir Tree Guest House
Aileen and Nick run the Fir Tree Guest House in Crieff.
They have a remarkable 5 rooms which they rent out as their business, including one self-contained flat, which sleeps 4.
For anyone travelling to Blue Noun with their family, this would be a great accommodation option.
Prices differ from Homestay prices, but Aileen and Nick are lovely. Depending on their availability, they can offer Blue Noun guests really good prices.
