  • Description


    At present we are looking for a Workaway person from the beginning of May 2022 for 2/3 months as our next guest has cancelled coming from abroad.

    Wonderful Scottish Borders countryside half hour from Edinburgh. Country house live in with family to help with ponies and house for 2 or 3 hours a day including a little washing, ironing and housework. All food provided. Own bedroom and bath and sitting room. Plenty of time off by arrangement to travel etc.
    Driving liscense useful. Non smoker please. Refs essential.
    Great opportunity for traveler who would like a few months to be based in Scotland. This is not a business but we will give you,by agreement, a paid allowance as well as your full board and lodging. No couples please. My husband and I live at Heriot with our animals. We have 4 children, all grown up of which three are married and one is engaged, and 3 grandchildren. The house has 8 bedrooms and is a family home but our children no longer live with us as they have their own careers and lives. Most of the cultural activity is nearby in Edinburgh but as we have some acres we keep a few sheep and horses. The culture opportunities in the Scottish Borders is mainly associated with the history and traditions associated with the history of Scotland over the centuries. This includes the Covenanters, the Common ridings and the wool mills and textile production to be found in the Borders.

    We have hosted numerous students and culture seekers over the years and ask for some help running the pets and house in return for some board, lodging and financial allowance along with plenty of freedom for our guests to indulge their interests.
