    We are a family-run business. We operate a series of holiday cottages and cabins in the beautiful West of Scotland.

    There is always work to be done maintaining the cabins. From turning over in between guests to fixing windows or clearing Bracken. Most of your jobs will be focused on housekeeping, maintenance, and gardening. Inhouse, we have the skills for plumbing, electrics, carpentry, and engineering jobs BUT always need extra hands in summer. Come along to experience the wildness of the Scottish landscape and its people!

    We are a friendly, joyous bunch down for a drink and party.

    The estate is on the West of Scotland right in the heart of the Ancient kingdom of Dalriada with lots of ancient Neolithic stones and sites all around us. We are right on the sea overlooking the Inner Hebrides islands of Scarba, Jura and Mull. Just down the road is the local village with a pub and Marina full of boats. There is lots to explore for anyone interested in history or who just loves the countryside, walking mountaineering and wildlife abound. The local stables are in the estate center so if you enjoy horses you can help Patricia in your spare time. We are a very friendly lot and you will quickly find yourself heading to the pier for a BBQ or bonfire.
    The village of Ardfern over the hill has a village hall with a number of activities and often has visiting bands, and plays.

    Most work will be outside or in sheds, although we do have an office and if there is someone who has some IT skills in networks that is always useful.

    Most of the work will be outside or in the sheds. Helping keep the cabins running, the odd turnaround by helping cleaning, doing the firewood, coal runs. Helping with building works on whatever the next project is. Painting cabin exteriors, and interiors. Mending a broken cupboard door, putting up lightbulbs, cleaning gutters, Gardening such as planting, weeding, mowing, and strimming. Helping at the pier for parties, the basic setting up & packing down. (IT skills are always handy if you have experience with running and repairing networks.)

    We suit someone with common sense and flexibility as every day can be different.

    We will provide accommodation and minimum wage for hours worked which in UK for a 23+ years is £9.
    We do not provide food.
    Providing your own transport is essential as we are a 15 minuet drive from the nearest town.
