  • Description


    I am a working young at heart pensioner who has worked all my life in hospitality. I have two daughters living nearby, with five grandchildren . I have been running my b&b on my own for the last twelve years, as well as being a licence holder in a neighbouring town until five years ago. I am looking for assistance with the b&b, by way of helping with the work I am finding harder to do so quickly,i.e. changing beds and hovering etc.
    As well as providing accommodation I will pay you for the hours worked.

  • Help


    Owing to my increasing years, I am looking for help two to three hours a day over four to five days a week, in the running of my small homely b&b at the top of mainland Scotland. Basically changing beds, and tidying rooms and kitchen. The season lasts until the end of September, and there are plenty of things to see and do in the area. Working hours in morning only, and I am flexible with days off.

    The house is less than a mile from a ferry to the Orkney Isles, which runs until the end of September, and is on the world famous North Coast 500 route. Bus transport stops outside the house, rail station and airport only 16 miles away.
    I have previously had world exchange students from Bangladesh stay, who still correspond with me, having enjoyed a stay here for a couple of months in the winter.
    I am willing to offer remuneration towards your time spent here also, by mutual agreement.
