  • Description


    I am looking for a couple of workawayers who are Sheep daft!!!
    Lambing time will be at the start of April and looking for help, this can be hard work but very rewarding, Early mornings, late nights, wet days, freezing hand, and lots of lamb cuddles, also with a bit of childcare, cooking etc thrown in for good measure.
    Must not be afraid of muck and goo and love being out side in all weather!!!
    If you are Traveling at the start of April Come and experience a rural lifestyle on a sheep farm in the heart of the Highlands of Scotland.

    I am a single mum of 3 young children, Amber 7, Rowan 5, and Ruaridh 3 1/2 and run the farm myself. The children attend a local school, and nursery. I own a farm that has sheep and cows, along with a pig, hens ducks and collie dogs. `

    The local area is great for walking, fishing, bird watching, skiing, cycling and simply chilling out in the great outdoors! The local town is a 5 minute drive away and has a few small shops and a supermarket.

    I prefer there to be 2 or 3 volunteers on the farm as it is very isolated. Accommodation is in two static caravans which I let out to holiday makers in the Summer. But volunteers can stay in these between bookings. They are located at the other side of the farm to the farm house where I am living.

    Looking for easy going people, self motivated people who don't mind getting dirty in the outdoors in Scotland. Animal and children lovers, who like a variety in tasks and like to give things a go!

    My mum comes up a lot to help look after kids, but I would like to take a bit of the pressure of her, meet new people and get a little help with jobs around the farm and house.

    There is always plenty of jobs to be done and looking for some extra hands to help with kids, Cleaning out sheds, stripping out an old house ready for renovation (currently underway!), general farm and building maintenance, grass cutting/gardening and some work with livestock.

    Ideally I am looking for workawayers who would like to spend a few weeks or more, as I just feel I and the kids are just getting to know them and they are away again!
