    HELP NEEDED RIGHT NOW.
    A cottage and gardens under renovation on the West Coast of Scotland, close to the Isle of Skye, and remote wild lands. We will eventually let the cottage, but right now we need general help to complete eco-building works . We can provide a warm caravan for 2/3 people, breakfast and evening meals, conversation and an insight into this amazing Scottish landscape in exchange for 2-3 week's building work, landscaping and gardening preparation. Recommendations would ideally be required.
    Pete works some of the week away in Edinburgh where he heads a tourism research programme specialising in eco- and adventure tourism. Jo works part-time in Arisaig, and full-time as house restorer and Mum. The village of Arisaig has live music in the pub most weeks.
    COME AND SEE US!
    Cheers
    Pete, Joanne and Charlie
