    Dear Workaways

    We live in Torridon, one of the most beautiful areas on the West Coast of Scotland . Our home is an old estate house on the shores of Loch Torridon the 150 acres amazing old woodland.
    Sarah and me are both musicians. Sarah plays the fiddle and is specialized in teaching Celtic Fiddle. I work as a producer and composer. We have three young children.
    We moved to Torridon three years ago and we are still in the process of renovating and developping the place. This spring we are planning to rebuild our large walled garden roads , tracks etc.
    Torridon is truely magical place and if you are looking for a true Scottish Highland experience you will come to the
    right place

    The area of help is generally supporting the overall situation, restoring the garden, fixing roads,help with the family.
    Your help could be anything from babysitting ,painting, helping in the kitchen, gardening .
    The work is usually always in a workaway team of 5 to 10 workways depending on the time in the season.

    If you are looking to get paid for your work please let us know - we can come to an agreement if you have a valid workvisa ( if you are not from inside the EU - Brexit situation is unclear) and National insurance number as well as an Uk bank account. We recomend a longer stay then four weeks, since we need to go through the employment routine and it would not make sense for just four weeks.
