Bragleenbeg is a large house in a remote rural glen in the West Coast of Scotland. We are surrounded by hills, are bordered by a stream and a loch and have around 3 acres of land. We are in the process of splitting the house into 2 so are looking for people who like to help with decorating (painting, sanding, wall-paper stripping) OR people who don't mind spending time with the 3 children and the dog after school each day and doing household chores such as cleaning, clothes-washing, dusting etc. We have 4 chickens, 4 ducks, 10 ducklings! and a big dog.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
We live in a beautiful glen with lovely hill walks and fantastic views plus as much peace, fresh air and freedom from the daily grind as you could want. BEWARE - our broadband is not good enough to stream movies and there is NO cellular signal at all. Wi-fi is good enough for some calls and accessing the internet and downloads of large files can be done overnight.
Decorating - painting, sanding, woodworking.
Housework - cleaning, dusting, hoovering, washing & ironing.
Help with the children - keeping them entertained and engaged in outside activities where possible - after school from 4 - 7 each day.
Gardening - weeding, lawn mowing, wood chopping.
1 bedroom with own bathroom. The bedroom has a double bed and a single so it is possible for non-couples to share.
Although we are not isolated as we have near neighbours we are remote and the nearest shop / pub / post office etc are at least 8 miles away. You have to not mind peace and quiet. We are next to the loch and have a canoe and several boats and there is fishing and plenty of hills to climb !
