    Shane and Tooti run a farm and small holiday lettings business on the Island of Luing, Near Oban, Argyll, Scotland. Our son Archie 29 y.o. and nephew Hamish 21y.o., live in a cottage on the farm as well. we have two other children, Kate 31 is married and lives in London and works as a PE. teacher and Jack who is 25 is currently in London working with a property company. Both of the kids come back up here as much as their jobs allow, as they and their friends love being here. We also have 3 dogs who are as near to human as doggily possible !! Tasha and Cora who are working cocker's and Molly who is a rather crazy Jack Russel !!.

    This is our first time ever advertising for a work away hence no ratings or feedback. I am really only looking for 1 person to help with the houses. We would like the workaway to stay as long as possible ie over a month. We did have au- pairs living with us for years when the children were young and they all have kept in touch, which must say something about our family !

    We both speak bad French but can make ourselves understood ! And smattering of Spanish. Tooti lived in Andorra skiing and chalet work for 7 winters and the south of France for 3 summers working on boats and both Shane and Tooti lived in Alberta, Canada for 1-2 years

    Luing is one of the most beautiful destination in the world and being only 30 minutes south of Oban so is not too remote.

    Island living is a very special thing to experience, though we do have a ferry that runs every 30 minutes and takes 2 minutes to cross. We do quite a lot of boat stuff, be it work ( sheep to other Islands ) or BBQ's and beaching at the weekends. We quite often take the boat over to other Islands such as Mull and Jura.

    We are looking for help cleaning my own house, the holiday house and the boys house (which is typical of boys mess) ! There is a wee bit of gardening depending if your up for it ! The afternoons are your own unless its the weekends and we normally all get up to something normally involving a boat or a bicycle.
    There is also potential for a paid job cleaning another house on the Island.

    If you wish to make a trip to the islands, ferries run daily from Oban to Colonsay, Coll. Tiree , Mull and Iona. We also have a tent to lend anyone and loads of camping kit. We are very close to Glen Coe and all the beautiful Munros to climb ( a mountain over 3k above sea level, nothing to most Europeans !) such as Ben Nevis the highest mountain in the UK.
    We also have a couple of Kayaks to play with.

    Glasgow is a 2 1/2 hour trip on the train or bus and Edinburgh another hour on wards. There are normally friends driving up and down the whole time so a lift is not out of the question.
