Area: ScotlandWe are a married couple with two children aged 14 and 16, We live in the village of Dornie close to Eilean Donan Castle (the one in Highlander) in an old croft house on the shore of a sea loch in the West Highlands of Scotland. We need help to maintain the house, garden and occasionally a historic wooden boat. We recycle old materials wherever possible and have to work to budget as no profit is made from these activities. Most of the work is outdoors, the weather can be very bad at any time of year so flexibility with working hours is required. We keep free range chickens and ducks, so there is usually no shortage of fresh eggs. Due to bad experience in the past we are only taking non smokers. Thank you to all our workaway's for all the help and hard work you have provided.

People in the village are used to receive foreigners and love cooking for visitors!
Area: AlentejoWe are recently retired and now live on a 10ha organic farm in Alentejo, Portugal. We are in the early stages of setting up the farm and so have lots of jobs and long term projects that we would like to acheive. For this we have decided that we do need some help to develop. We have pigs, sheep, turkeys, hens, ducks, tortoises and dogs. We grow most of our own food. We are in a very beautiful and rural area and you can develop the Portugese language with help from the locals who do not speak English! We are an hours drive inland from the Algarve and just 30 MILES from the stunning west coast beaches. Our village has no shops but the next village which is 6 km away as a small supper market. We have two little bars in the village. The village is very very quiet with very little nightlife so please don`t come thinking you are coming to a tourist resort. This place is for people who like been in touch with nature, and enjoy been apart from big cities. The farm is a working farm and at times is dusty or muddy depending on the weather so working boots and working cloths are essential. Our working day is usually from 7.30 until 1830 yes long hours(often this is just feeding and cleaning the animals but we do have plenty of breaks). If you require to do just the 5 hour days as workaway says this is not a problem just speak up and we will set you 5 ish hours work then you can do what you want. We do go to local shows ,markets and events and you are always welcome to come with us. I am afraid that we are not the busy resort on the coast so please make sure you read and study our profile before contacting us. Our nearest big town is Ourique which is about 12 km away.
