We are a family who has recently bought a small self catering business in the heart of the Scottish Highlands near Ullapool.
It has been closed for many years therefore we are currently working hard to refurbish the chalets ready for season. We need a few hands to help us get on top of the maintenance and to help clean the chalets. This may suit a couple or 2 friends but equally happy to accept singles too. We are in a rural location but just 3 miles to nearest village and one hour to nearest City Inverness.

You will learn how to use the mechanical equipment for maintaining the lawns strimming the grass etc. You will learn how to use an electronic diary that manages the reservations for the bookings and help to check guests in an out.
