You are now welcome to contact us for placements from April to October 2018.
We live in a small rural community about 15 miles from Oban and 90 miles from Glasgow.
We have a large house about 300 years old, in a property of 10 hectares right on the shores of Loch Awe.
If you like rural living, stunning scenery, and the outdoor life - walking, cycling, nature, wildlife, then you will love it here.
We have a small dog.
We are both mid 60's, so help with work on the land would be really appreciated.
Because of our remote location we prefer to limit the duration of each assignment to 2 or 3 weeks.
Also, you need to be at least 20 years of age.
Please find us on a map before replying to be sure you understand where we are.
Help in the house
Our land is 10 hectares of woodland so much of the outdoor work is tidying fallen trees, trimming bushes, strimming weeds and such like.
We also need maintenance work such as painting.
Inside the house the work is domestic duties, cleaning, tidying, changing bed linen and such like.
We can offer twin or double rooms with access to private toilet facilities.
All rooms are well furnished, and of a good size. We think you will be comfortable. It is a big house so there is plenty of space for privacy.
We have good TV and broadband, but mobile phone reception is not so good.
We are in remote location.
There is a reasonable bus service into Taynuilt and Oban and from there, buses and trains to Glasgow.
We can provide bicycles for local transport.
We strongly recommend you find Kilchrenan on the map to get an idea of where we are.
