  • Description


    My husband and I have four daughters and seven gandchildren. Rosssie is a small family run estate with a farm and a garden which is open on various days for charity under Scotland's Gardens. As we open the Gardens in May it would be such a help to have a couple to stay. The cottage is lovely and comfortable.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They would benefit from being on a Scottish Farm, work in a beautiful garden, learn gardening skills.
    There is a lot to explore in Scotland a car would be preferable for a workaway but not essential. Edinburgh is an hour away, Glasgow is an hour away also. St Andrews and all east coast villages are also an hour away.
    The volunteers could practise their English and ask about anything they are interested in.
    The main attraction is the peaceful and beautiful surroundings.

  • Help


    general help in the garden. This includes greenhouse work, weeding, strimming, tidying and all aspects of gardening.
    The workaways stay in our holiday cottage and work in the mornings.
    We generally all have lunch together, sometimes supper but food is provided for you to do your own catering in the evening.
    The village has a post office and busses go through to Perth which connect to busses or trains to Edinburgh, Glasgow, St Andrews and Dundee. Also busses go northbound.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is a lot to explore in the area. Perth, which is a market town, is 7 miles away. We are also in easy reach of the Highlands and the east coast villages in Fife. Edinburgh is under an hour away.
    We are on a bus route which links into city busses from Perth. OR a car would allow more access to the country side.
    Very comfortable accommodation.
