    Description

    We live on a small-holding of 38 acres in Scotland just on the edge of a small town in Perthshire. I'm retired but kept busy on the farm as there's always plenty to do. My daughter and her boyfriend have now taken over the stable buildings and a lot of the land and plan to have some glamping pods and camping. I have a little rescue dog and my daughter has three dogs, some chickens, sheep and lambs. We're looking for help to tidy up the garden, do general maintenance, painting and decorating and occasionally help with our animals e.g. feed chickens and clean out hen house, feed and water lambs, clean field when ponies are back and I'm sure they would love to have a good groom occasionally. I'm on the farm most of the time as is my daughter so we work here while her boyfriend works full-time as a tree surgeon, helping out on the farm at weekends.
    Someone with construction skills would also be helpful to get involved with some of my daughters projects.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We live in a beautiful part of Scotland and it suits people who love the outdoors. It's peaceful and relaxing at the farm but within easy reach of the cities with good transport links. Some workaways come to improve their English and some come to get away from their hectic city life for a while. However, those with experience of outdoor or maintenance work would be preferred.

    Aide

    The main areas of help are general maintenance, painting and gardening. At this time of year the verges need cut back so strimming and chopping bushes also needs doing. There is always weeding needing done. Painting Buildings, clearing out animal housing, pressure washing the yard, stables & buildings, fencing (farm fields).
    Please read the 'Information for Workawayers' on this website, especially note the bit that says 'Housework i.e. cooking, washing- up, etc should be shared'. Most volunteers don't need to be reminded of this and are happy to 'muck in' but some do so it's best to state this at the start. You'll also be responsible for keeping your room clean and clearing up after yourself in the rest of the house.

    This area of Scotland is well known for outdoor pursuits and has some fabulous countryside. It's particularly popular for hillwalking, cycling, fishing, and golfing. There are also a few castles within easy reach and the towns of Perth and Dundee are only 18 miles away. There will be ample opportunity to explore and if I'm unable to give lifts then there's a good public transport service which passes the top of the lane and it's just a 15/20 minute walk into town.
