  • Description

    Description

    We have self catering tourism businesses in Aberfeldy and Pitlochry , Perthshire in the Scottish Highlands. We previously had a guesthouse and have hosted happy workawayers for a number of years!

    Aberfeldy and Pitlochry are both busy holiday villages in the Highlands. There is loads of outdoor activities and there are pubs, restaurants, a cinema and a distillery within walking and cycling distance.

    We are Tina and Norman, we are very adaptable, friendly and have run all aspects of our own small businesses for a long time now. We have two daughters Kirsty, 26 and Ailie, 25 and a son Calum who is 18. Our five dogs Whisky, Coco, Millie, Tala and Beauly are very friendly and popular with our workaway guests.
    At present we are looking for people who can help with cleaning lodges, general maintenance work and some gardening.
