This is the most remote hotel on mainland Britain, situated in the splendid isolation of North Scotland's Highlands, the home of eagles, wild deer and salmon. In the tourist season we are looking for practical and flexible individuals or couples to help run the hotel while, out of season, we need help with renovation and improvements.

This host offers accommodation and payment.
Host has indicated that they will pay at least the minimum hourly wage of their country for each hour worked and that accommodation will also be provided.

Any arrangements should be agreed in advance with your host.
Help in our small and remote hotel. As from May we need help with cleaning, cooking, gardening, general maintenance and looking after guests. We pay the National Living Wage/Minimum Wage (as applicable) for hours worked; with a deduction of £20 per day for food and accommodation. You will have your own (en-suite) room.
Outside the main tourist months of May-September, Workaways will need a reasonable degree of self-reliance and practical skills as the focus changes to maintenance and renovation.
As a small hotel, all rooms are ensuite and have good beds; either double or twin. The kitchen has a large gas oven and a full range of equipment. We have no TV and, because the WiFi is provided by satellite, the internet is limited and will not support Netflix or other streaming services. We do, however, have a large DVD collection, a well stocked library, boardgames and a piano.
Northern Scotland is not for the faint hearted or those intimidated by long dark winter nights, with the real possibility of being snowed in (possible from December until April). But we do have a small library, open fires and wonderful views. There is no light pollution as there are no neighbours, but you are likely to see the Northern Lights if you stay in winter. In summer you have 'white nights' with the sun hardly setting.
