    ----------------Hostel Currently Closed for winter season --------------- NOW! Looking for workawayers to start mid March, staying for 1 month + ---------------------

    We are looking for Workawayers to assist with the daily hostel duties primarily cleaning and possibly reception - Tasks include; making beds, vacuuming floors, cleaning showers and toilets - anything that ensures that the hostel is clean and comfortable for our guests. No experience necessary, just an ability to work under your own supervision and a keen eye for detail!

    In exchange for working about 4 hours per day for 6 days/week for accommodation in our staff dorm and a food allowance (£35) , free breakfast daily, free laundry service, free WiFi and free unlimited tea, coffee and hot chocolate! Not to mention the awesome friends you will make with people from all over the world. With a day off you can make the most of exploring the local areas and taking advantage of what Scotland has to offer further afield!

    Please note that we are pretty isolated, in the sense that there are no shops out here (ASDA/Tesco do deliver), just us and maybe a monster or two out here. Also all helpers will have to adhere to work restrictions of the UK and will need to be either an EU citizen or hold a valid work visa.

    Come make some memories with us!

    Hope to hear from you soon!

    What else ...

    There's plenty of walks in the local area and lots of peace and quiet during the day, during the night time things can get pretty busy so expect a lot of great conversations with new friends over a bottle of wine! (or two) We do organise some local day trips here and there to see some of the other sites around the area such as Foyers Falls and Urquart Castle.
