  • Description

    Description

    Coronavirus has put my husband and I isolated. HOWEVER

    Our cottage is empty and ready for workaways but obviously you would not be able to eat with us!😕
    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.
    References can be given by past workaways.l

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They would benefit from helping in a beautiful garden, learn gardening skills. There is every type of ground work during the Autumn, some mundane work but also skills to be embraced.
    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.
