    ****Fully Booked for 2022 Please get in touch if you are travelling in 2023*****

    I have a small farm in the Highlands of Scotland - John O'Groats a bucket list destination for many. I bought the farm in Sept 2016 and there is lots to do to try to get it where i would like to be long term. Running the farm by myself with only so many hours in a day means any help is really appreciated! A few years ago i opened a small 2 bedroom B&B on site and this year a farm shop!

    I am Looking for couple/friends who can take care of the animals - feeding and cleaning, farm maintenance and the gardening side of things (weeding, planting and cutting the grass etc). There is a 4 berth caravan available with good wifi, dry, warm and cosy with its own kitchen and small bathroom.

    I also welcome solo travellers who can help walk the dog, help get the B&B ready for guests and work in the farm shop serving customers and keeping shelves stocked and clean. There is a 2 berth caravan available with good wifi, kitchen and bathroom etc.

    You are welcome to help yourself to the eggs, fruit and veg in the onsite farm shop.

    I am a single woman, easy going and drama free, good sense of humour, looking for someone honest, dependable, a good work ethic and able to use common sense/initiative as necessary! Everything on the farm is easy and am happy to cater your time as much as possible to your preferences. There are a few key times i need your help but am happy for you to organise the other hours as you want so you can create your own free time to go off an explore this beautiful part of Scotland.

    It's important to realise that while all the jobs are fairly straightforward they are all physical in nature so a fair amount of physical strength and fitness is necessary. Also due to the nature of the environment and that a lot of your time you will be working autonomously this is not an ideal environment for learning a language. A good level of english is necessary if you wish to stay here. If you suffer from any physical or mental illnesses or health concerns please talk to me about it so that we can decide together how this environment and the work involved may be suited to your needs.

    I also have local part time employees who help out on the farm on the shop. Depending on age i pay an hourly rate at minimum wage. I give a weekly payment to each workawayer every Monday.

    John O'Groats is a bucket list destination being the most northerly point in the U.K THe farm has views that look out to sea and the Orkney Islands. If you are a nature lover there are many beautiful spots, tours and day trips you can take. There are whales, seals, puffins and many sea birds around.
