Last Activity


Historic Estate in Southern Scotland's, Galloway Forest Park.

We're in need of immediate help! Can you come soon, very soon?

Tidy up the gardens, logging and helping with building repairs.
Cleaning, painting and preparing for the season ahead.
All skills (indoors and outdoors).

We ask that you work a minimum of 6 hours a day with 1 or 2 days off. Flexibility needed.

Sociable, good workers and a good sense of humor is essential to fit in. Whether coming alone or as a couple or friends. You must be fit and healthy.

In return you will be appreciated! Good accommodation on the estate and great home cooking free of charge.

Tasks can include decorating, gardening, regenerating woodland, housekeeping, building projects. All building, renovating skills very welcome.
A couple would be welcome too.

To feel at home you will love a country side environment.

A car and drivers license would be an advantage alternatively we can drop you off at the village train station for days out on your days off. These post are subject to availability and we do not take pets.

Getting here. Nearest airports are Glasgow Prestwick or Glasgow International. From both airports are train links to our village where we will collect you on arrival.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. Best wishes Caroline
