    **We are now looking to put our team together for this coming Season. Starting from April, we will be looking for one couple or two friends to come for each of the calendar months through to and including September.**

    We run a small outdoor cafe and bunkhouse open from Easter to September each year. We are situated on the beautiful island of Kerrera, 5 mins off the coast of Oban in the west of Scotland. The island attracts lots of walkers and we are positioned in a great location 45 mins walk from the ferry on the south of the island close to Gylen Castle. It's the perfect place to stop for some good homemade soups, cakes and a nice cup of tea! Our bunkhouse sleeps up to 7 people and comes with a converted cow shed with sofas, a wood burning stove and great view of the castle.

    We are a couple in our forties who love music (most types, especially reggae, funk and Brazilian but not much techno!). Before living on this tiny, idyllic island, Aideen worked as a drummer/dancer on tour with the stage show Stomp and Martin worked in a community radio station. We're both pretty social and love to get together with our neighbours for bbq's and parties although as we just had our first child in December 2017, we're getting earlier to bed these days! The island has about 70 people living here full-time and there is a great sense of community.

    You will learn good basic kitchen skills and customer service skills. All we ask from you is enthusiasm and good humour!

    Island life comes with it's own joys and challenges and you will get to experience the unique feeling of living away from it all!

    We provide accommodation and provide all meals including homemade CAKE!
    (Please note that we do eat meat and wheat/bread and find it difficult to cater for the vegan/Gluten free diets).

    We provide all food and we like to have family meals 2 or 3 nights per week, they other nights helpers can cook in the caravan.

    We provide a small alcohol allowance for the staff team. (Wine/Beer/Cider)

    We are able to offer payment for 1 month stays and over. Because this is a live in position, part of the payment is offset with accommodation costs. Happy to discuss this further with potential helpers.

    Your time here will either be spent working in the cafe or helping with childcare as well as odd jobs around the place. This might include gardening, general maintenance or cleaning.
    A typical working week would be Thursday - Monday from 10am til 4pm
    We close the cafe on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so these are the regular days off.
    We offer minimum wage equivalent payment for cafe hours worked.

    We enjoy working hard and do our best to make it a fun environment- for us and you. We also love good food, relaxing with a glass of wine, watching movies, playing games and enjoying our surroundings.

    On days off, you are free to explore this unspoilt, craggy island. We are less than 10 mins walk from the coast and the stunning ruins of Gylen Castle. The island is renowned for it's geology, which in turn lends itself to incredible rock formations and beautiful views. If you fancy returning to the mainland, or exploring other nearby islands such as Mull/Iona, we are only a short 5min ferry ride to our closest town, Oban.

    We have a canoe and two bikes that our team are free to use to get around.
