  • Description

    Description

    Looking for someone ideally for a minimum of a month to 6 weeks and more, if able to stay longer.

    Tarskavaig is a crofting village on the West coast of Sleat on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. It sits in a glen which meets Tarskavaig Bay and lies opposite the Isles of Eigg, Rum and Canna.

    Tarskavaig is a traditional crofting village with a high number of Gaelic speakers, several families with children, and active crofters.

    We are looking for someone to help in the home with some cleaning, preparing meals and spending sometime as a companion to our elderly father.

    On the family Croft there is 3 horses, one highland Kiona, one eriskay Coco and a wee Shetland Jo Jo which you would be welcome to spend as much time as you like with.

    We also have Meg the dog and Culag the cat.
