Help on a Scottish estate with lots of wildlife in Alyth, UK



 Estancia mínima:  1 mes o más



  • Descripción



    We have a small rural estate and a big house in East Perthshire on the Highland Edge. We are three generations of the same family running a rewilding project and ecotourism business. We are involved with conservation projects and writing . There are also flats in the house and cottages on the estate with friendly people, both young and old. We have an interesting beaver reintroduction project with extensive wetlands surrounded by woodlands and an organic farm and hill land. Workawayers have had a good time here in the past. It is a friendly and relaxed situation in a beautiful part of the world.

    We are currently looking for live-in helpers to clean the cottages and off-grid accommodation and other tasks that arise. One or two people can be accommodated. During the winter months hours of work are lower as tourism bookings drop away, so a digital nomad happy to work fewer and flexible hours would suit us well.

    All applicants must have a right to work in the UK. Minimum wage paid for all hours worked.

    You need to be able to ride a quad bike (or ready to learn) and it is a help if you can drive, as cottages are spaced out around the estate. Some child care may be included from time to time.

    You will stay in a comfortable bedroom of your own and have access to Wifi.

    We usually do get a lot of applicants and do not always have time to reply to all. Apologies if we miss yours.

    We are friendly and chatty, and like having young people around. The estate is a friendly community and our beavers and rewilding project attract interesting people throughout the year. Staying with us you will learn about life on an estate with an iconic rewilding project.
    The castle was begun in the 16th century and has many interesting contents and stories.

    We are very happy to help English learners in an informal way. Our estate is of especial interest (and delight) to anyone interested in wildlife and ecology and the area is interesting for archaeology. We are close to the Highlands for hillwalking etc.

Great if you have your own car but you can borrow a bicycle/ebike (or sometimes a car if you drive) to get to the shops etc. .. Alternatively we can give you a lift when we are going. Many of our Workawayers have also enjoyed the 3 mile walk to the village.
