  • Description


    Looking for Workaways for December, January and February.
    We welcome energetic, sociable and fun Workaways to help in the house and large garden. Typical help will be raking leaves, putting compost on the vegetable patch, and some maintenance of the house and outbuildings.
    We are located in the middle of a small town of 5000 people called Huntly which is surrounded by hills, rivers and forests. Huntly has 4 pubs, fish and chip shop, kebab shop, Indian and Chinese restaurants, 2 ice cream shops and 3 cafes. It also has a railway station and frequent buses to Aberdeen and Inverness.
    We do not have any children or animals to look after however there are lots of sheep and cows in the surrounding fields and normally you see deer in the local woods.
    If you would to find out more, or are interested, please send us a message. Also please check the latest Covid restrictions for the UK and Scotland since people from most countries will have to quarantine for 14 days when they first arrive into the UK.
