  • Description

    Description

    We live on a small-holding of 38 acres in Scotland just on the edge of a small town in Perthshire. The stables and majority of the land is rented to a charity which rescues and rehabilitates horses and dogs and runs independently as I am now retired. We have two dogs, some chickens and seven pet lambs. We're looking for help to tidy up the garden, do general maintenance, painting and decorating and occasionally help with our animals e.g. feed chickens and clean out hen house, feed and water lambs.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a beautiful part of Scotland and it suits people who love the outdoors. It's peaceful and relaxing at the farm but within easy reach of the cities with good transport links. Some workaways come to improve their English and some come to get away from their hectic city life for a while.

    Help

    The main areas of help are general maintenance, painting and gardening. At this time of year the verges need cut back so strimming and chopping bushes also needs doing. There is always weeding needing done.
    Please read the 'Information for Workawayers' on this website, especially note the bit that says 'Housework i.e. cooking, washing- up, etc should be shared'. Most volunteers don't need to be reminded of this and are happy to 'muck in' but some do so it's best to state this at the start. You'll also be responsible for keeping your room clean and clearing up after yourself in the rest of the house.

    What else ...

    This area of Scotland is well known for outdoor pursuits and has some fabulous countryside. It's particularly popular for hillwalking, cycling, fishing, and golfing. There are also a few castles within easy reach and the towns of Perth and Dundee are only 18 miles away. There will be ample opportunity to explore.
