We are a tiny social enterprise based on an organic farm and castle in rural Perthshire. By 'we' I mean Rachel and Malcolm with our 5 year old son and two cats.
Our place is within 1300 acres of quiet countryside managed for ecological diversity and organic sheep farming, has great walking and yet is under 3 miles from the small town of Alyth where there are shops, pubs and cafes, plus direct buses to Dundee and Perth.

Helping with Tourists
We teach outdoor and survival skills within an ecological oasis, on the edge of the Highlands of Scotland yet within easy reach of castles, cities and rich history. Our work includes helping tourists and visitors, including guided walks and travel advice such as hidden gems and magical places off the beaten track. We'd love to share this with you!
We have a small vegetable garden which needs caring for and we need help cleaning, tidying and general maintenance. We also hope the right person could offer child care so we can get an evening off.
Fancy staying in a 4 poster bed in a castle? Your own room, with private bathroom, shared kitchen.
The area is ideal for getting close to nature, walking, relaxing or mountain biking. Public transport is under 3 miles away with excellent connections to Dundee and Perth, Glamis Castle or into the Highlands. The area is also excellent for cycling and hitchhiking, so makes a great base for trips off to explore Scotland.
We try to minimise our impact on the environment and to respect all life, which includes being quiet and "leaving it better than you find it".
