    SORRY NO SPACES AVAILABLE UNTIL NEXT SUMMER (unless I have already contacted you!)

    Hello! We are a friendly family of 3 living in the heart of the beautiful village of Plockton. Our house is right beside the sea and we have quite a large garden which we are always trying to tame and develop to grow more things! We are both self-employed and our daughter is in her final year of primary school in the village.

    We have a lovely dog and 2 cats. We are mainly vegetarian (we eat fish) and love cooking (well I do anyway!). We can speak some French and Spanish and our daughter can speak Gaelic. I like to do yoga and would be very happy to offer yoga sessions to anyone coming to stay if they wished, also if you are artistic I have loads of art materials and would be up for collaborations.

    We are looking for practical people to come and stay to help us mainly with the garden and possibly other tasks that might need doing around the house. We are happy to work with the skills you have got as long as you have a positive approach :)

    You will find out about how life is in a tiny Highland village and we can share our knowledge from having lived here for many years.

    Plockton is considered one of the most charming villages on the west coast of Scotland and often features in calendars and brochures. Plockton has palm trees, fishing boats, beer gardens, art galleries and great restaurants and The Wicker Man was filmed in our village plus more recently the TV series Hamish MacBeth.

  • Arbeit


    Gardening maintenance, polytunnel construction, help with housework.
    The West coast of Scotland has very unstable weather, it can get very hot and sunny and equally wild and windy so bring clothes that can be used in any weather! Midges can be bad in summer months.
