  • Description


    Join us on the stunning Isle of Mull, a very remote island off the west coast of Scotland. We have self catering holiday cottages, located halfway between the main town of Tobermory and the village of Salen. Our family consist of 4 generations. We run the accommodations and take care of rescue animals. There is public transport that passes our drive or you could bring your own car.
    You can fly to Glasgow or Edinburgh, then get the Train from Glasgow queen St station or Citylink Bus to Oban, then the Calmac Ferry to Craignure, then the West Coast Motors Bus to us.
    We are happy to accommodate one female, two females, or a husband and wife.
    Accommodation, the occasional cooked vegan meal to take away, ingredients inc plant milks, cereal pasta cans etc would be provided.

  • Help


    We need help with renovating our holiday accommodations, cleaning to a high standard, a fast but quality job of exterior painting, washing windows, maintenance, gardening, handyperson and joinery skills would be a real bonus.
    We would like a work-awayer to help us 3/4 ish hrs hours a day please. Hours are flexible.
    We would like a work-awayer to stay for 4 or 5 nights initially as a trial, then stay on for longer if everyone is happy and we have the work.
    We are looking for speedy and hard workers please.
    You would need to have insurance.
    English speaking essential.
    Life on a remote Scottish island, especially in the winter months can be very isolating, peaceful, beautiful, and cold.
    Great if you wanting some alone time and have warm clothes (waterproofs/mountain and hiking clothes).

  • Accommodation


    The use of a large self catering kitchen (inc ovens and hobs) is available for use. No smokers please.

    Unfortunately due to coronavirus we won't be able to socialise or invite you into the house for meals or allow you to cuddle the rescue animals as we would have done in previous years.
    The main reason we need a work away this year is because we are vulnerable and shielding.
