We are a couple with 2 grown up children, a son who has settled in
Edinburgh and a daughter who has recently returned from travelling abroad.
We run a croft - ie a small farm - in the northern Highlands of Scotland a couple of miles from the nearest village. On the croft there is also a self
catering holiday cottage and caravan site. We have sheep, poultry, a sheepdog and 3 cats - and a poly tunnel. We farm extensively rather than intensively in order to maintain the environment and wildlife.
We are always happy to help improve your English if needed or just enjoy the cultural exchange.
Please do not apply if you are a smoker.
We can: help with your English, show you the history, culture, ecology and geography of the Highlands of Scotland, and in particular the history and culture of crofting which is a land tenure system unique to the Scottish Highlands and Islands.
Up coming projects: will be varied so don't get bored, including garden work, feeding sheep and other general croft work, some house maintenance etc.
Accommodation at the moment will be in the cottage. We will supply tea, milk, sugar and biscuits/cakes in the cottage, but all meals will be with us in the main house.
We have Wi-Fi in the cottage and main house.
We have beautiful panoramic views here, mountains, moorlands and native woodlands. Mountain bike trails and opportunities to explore the north of Scotland.
