Airbnb Cottage in the rural Scottish Highlands
ALWAYS LOOKING FOR ENTHUSIASTIC AND HARD WORKING VOLUNTEERS. Minimum one month but preference given to longer stays wherever possible.. Current availability from 13th December onwards. Couples or single male preferred.
****IN ADDITION TO OUR CURRENT NEEDS WE ARE SEEKING TO FILL A 2 MONTH HOUSE SITTING PLACEMENT NEXT YEAR (2023) FROM MID-JUNE TO MID AUGUST or longer if desired. Ideally a couple. Self motivated, mature, very organised with good attention to detail, forward planners, trustworthy, good with animals and ability to drive an advantage but not essential..
Thank you in advance for reading our profile :)
We are always seeking help throughout the year for a minimum of one month or longer if possible. Single person or a couple. Main duties will be based around the daily animal chores (yes you will get your hands dirty!), together with occasional help if required in the house cleaning and re-setting rooms after guests depart (dueing the winter months we do not usually have any paying guests).
Volunteers to our home will be warmly welcomed with true Highland hospitality and the opportunity to discover rural Scotland in all it's stunning glory. We live next to the Harry Potter railway line and some of the true iconic scenery you will have seen only in films on Scotland.
If you love the outdoors and our beautiful dogs plus have a willingness to learn about growing veggies and looking after ducks / chickens as well as a basic understanding of how a small high quality guest house is operated - then this will be the ideal place for you.
We have easy access to some lovely beaches, hill lochs, beautiful Islands, amazing hikes and stunning mountains to climb - we will also take you to other places when we are able to go if you wish to join us.
We are a very busy working family with three small children, and if you arrive with a flexible, can do / positive, and willing attitude to do your best and work hard, then we will be most happy :-). If it feels like you are not helping or are constantly being reminded of your duties, then it's unlikely to work out! If you wish only to have a holiday in lovely Scotland, then please arrange this through a travel agent :-). We need honest, hard working, trustworthy, respectful and flexible helpers that will make a positive difference to our lives. If you have passions for certain chores then we will try to help and encourage you in that area. Self-motivation and attention to detail is important as often you will be working alone. If you are really willing to learn about business and many other aspects of rural life we are a good environment for that too. We offer two good meals a day - mid-morning and early evening with supplementary snacks if needed in between . Sometimes we have time to prepare these and sometimes it will be self-service!
