  • Description


    Now urgent need for outside help for 1 to2 weeks.

    I manage two holiday cottages on the Isle of Mull and need help getting them ready for the season, improving both the buildings and the grounds. The cottages are right on the sea with fantastic views in what people say is a special part of Mull. I divide my time between Scotland and London where I also look after other property. Apart from that I work as a legal consultant and am a graphic designer.
