    Description

    Welcome to Aberfeldy Scotland! Home of the famous Bacardi owned Aberfeldy Whisky!

    We are a small team of hospitality professionals with many years experience in Scottish tourism. We love what we do and are committed to achieving our goal of saving this historic inn. Come and spend a while in the area, you might even want to stay!

    We offer paid work and a free room for all tasks. We expect you work at least 40 hours a week and we pay the minimum wage ( weekly by cash) which is approx 9 pounds per hour. Food is extra ( not included) and depends on your requirements.

    The Inn, which is 500 years old, has been under immense strain and more or less had to close, it has 19 rooms and we plan to try and give some love back into the building and once again see it thrive! We've been at this nearly 2 years now and are getting really proud about the results that we are seeing.

    Anyone that has restoration and renovation experience would be a huge asset right now.

    We are looking for :

    People with DIY skills.


    Barristas, chefs,people with restaurant and bar experience, marketing enthusiasts,
    Facebook / Instagram gurus. Retirees more than welcome. The older the better :-)



    Thanks for your interest, let's stay in touch.

    Ps digital nomads also welcome!
