Continuing to manage and refurbish a unique property that was once the vegetable garden for Rosneath Castle (now demolished). The garden has been very carefully designed and comprises 1.5 acres of formal garden, a half acre of organic vegetable garden and five acres of woodland. I am a single person in my fifties working full time ...heading towards retirement when I can spend most of our time outdoors.
In the meantime, I would love you to come and help me (five hours per day, 5 days per week or 25 hours per individual in total per week spread out to suit your itinerary) and in return I will provide ensuite accommodation and all meals.

I am a spirited, young at heart, entrepreneurial woman who has worked very hard all of my life and continue to manage the property and garden and maintain it in as eco friendly a way as possible. I have very ambitious plans for the property and am happy to share experiences of hatching plans and working hard to realize a dream. There is lots of refurbishment work to do inside the main house too and I am looking to share experiences and learn some new tricks from helpers.
I would love some enthusiastic folks with a real can do approach to come and help me with all sorts of things from organic gardening, wood cutting some inside refurbishment work and general maintenance.
The accommodation is flexible depending on availability and comprises a self contained apartment OR an ensuite room with a super king sized bed and access to some of our public rooms. I am willing to share meals with you at my table, provide access to the kitchen. I would love it if you would cook for me sometimes too.
The property is on the Rosneath Peninsula ...about a half hour drive from Helensburgh. There is a regular bus to Helensburgh and 2 train stations close by serving Glasgow and Edinburgh. Loch Lomond is a 20 minute drive away from our house.
