  • Description

    Description

    Roddy and Caroline both work locally. We have 3 grown up children, the younger 2 are still at University and home for part of the summer.

    We are looking for help with walking our 14 year old Cairn terrier, housework and ground work. We have a small woodland we are working on tidying, a garden and a recreation area where there is weeding, cutting back and maintenance to be done over summer.

    No specific skills are necessary, you just need to be willing and hard working. The work is physical and a good level of fitness is ideal.

    Applicants should be 22 years old and over please. Maximum stay 1 month.

    We have been happily been hosting au pairs and workaways for many years.

    You will have plenty of time to explore the local area. As it is a country location there is not much night life but plenty of beautiful scenery! Oban is a large town and the bus to Benderloch is good. Previous couples have been to Mull, Iona, Staffa (Puffins), Kerrera, Fort William (Ben Nevis) and Edinburgh.

    Beautiful location on the west coast of Scotland. 1 mile from the nearest bus and village shop in Benderloch. Walking distance of Tralee beach. Ideally we would prefer a couple with a reference from a previous host please.
