  • Descripción


    Myself and my partner Julien and year old son Leon live and work on our farm. We are 8 miles from the village of Ullapool down a private bumpy road so feels very remote and even getting there is a bit of an adventure. We run a hill farm with sheep and cattle and well as a couple of self catered properties. We try and live as self sufficiently as possible producing our own electricity and growing as much as possible in our garden.
    We would really appreciate the extra help around the house and Garden and the farm during the summer which is always a busy time. You will be out of mobile phone reception and very limited internet as we have a small allowance per month. So prefer workaways who want a digital detox.

    We love hosting people from all different countries and sharing our way of life with them. We try for self sufficiently, making our own electricity and produce our vegetables and meat from the farm and garden. Volunteers will benefit from an amazing opportunity to stay in the highlands of Scotland living on a traditional hill farm. Julien is French but we speak English at home, so its a great place to improve your English. We try hard to make this a great exchange for both of us, language, music, books, traditions, food and also work and skills.

    Help required is very dependent on what jobs we are doing when you stay and work is very varied. The most important work will be helping around the house with cooking and cleaning which with a new baby will be much appreciated.
    +++UPDATE Jan 2022 ++++
    We are looking for help with lambing and cutting splitting wood from beginning April until end May.
    We are also looking for help to get the garden and guests houses open, looking after Leon, painting, decorating from Beginning March until end of May.
    Then looking for someone until the end of September. please get in touch if its of any interest to you.

    Any keen builders/ carpenters / DIYers?! We have a couple of interesting projects on at the moment. We are making a shepherds hut and horse box bathroom. There is always lots of maintenance work such as digging, log splitting, painting and fixing to do around the place as well as help in the garden. Farm work depends when you stay as often the animals are out of the hill grazing and don't require much. We are lambing in May, shearing in July and gathering animals in in the autumn. We have chickens, sheep, cows, working dogs and ponies.

    We love to make you feel at home here and part of the family so you will be living in our cottage with us. Your bedroom will either be a shared room with other volunteers or a private room depending on availability. We will let you know before if we are expecting other volunteers during your stay. We have double or single beds and a shared bathroom. We cook and eat meals together. I love it when volunteers help with the shopping list, getting the food they love to cook and eat.

    We are quite remote so good for those people seeking to get of the beaten track and wanting a bit more adventure and lost in nature. On the farm you can enjoy walking, climbing, riding, sailing, fly fishing or staying out in a bothy. We live in an incredible remote location with great walks from the door step. To show you have read my profile before applying please mention the word unicorn in your email of introduction....Sorry getting a bit fed up with copy paste and no thought to the first emails to me. Thanks.
    The village of Ullapool is 8 miles away. We have bikes you can borrow- if you can help with bike maintenance always appreciated. Happy to offer lifts when we are going. Ullapool is a small but bustling fishing village with cafes, restaurants, art galleries, book shops, pubs and some great live music.
    From Ullapool there is the possibility of exploring further afield. The nearest city is Inverness which is an hour and a half away with a couple of buses going a day.
