  • Description


    A 5 acre non-commercial croft with numerous vegetable beds, an orchard, shelter belts with 2 polytunnels and 2 greenhouses to be maintained. We grow fruit, and a wide range of vegetables and sometimes sell surplus vegetables.

    We have chickens, cows, bees and a cat - and sometimes have pigs. We aim to be as self sufficient as possible. Work will include planting, weeding, hedge trimming, log chopping, pruning, peat cutting, woodland maintenance, building maintenance projects. We usually have visitors for two week stays but this can sometimes be extended once we have met you! We don't accept helpers under 18.

    We have some "no dig" areas and enjoy experimenting with new vegetables and gardening methods.

    Magnificent views and a beautiful beach are close by - this is a great place for hill walking, fishing and bird watching. Good home cooking and friendly hosts happy to help those wanting to improve their English or Gaelic.

    Other interests: Scottish music, Gaelic, heritage and history, films, politics. Bikes available for wwoofer use. Broadford or Kyle of Lochalsh are 3 miles away.

    We mostly need help with garden work - digging and making composts, planting, pruning, log chopping, digging peats for winter fuel etc and general maintenance of our buildings here. Also hedge cutting in August and September and cutting down trees and chopping wood for the winter wood supply. We try to be a self sufficient as we can. We have well maintained equipment to make the work run smoothly and efficiently.

    We are a friendly outgoing household and welcome visitors. We often have our grandchildren visiting here as they live next door. We have been taking on volunteers to help with our land for the last 12 years so are experienced hosts. This is an area rich in wildlife and a great area for hiking and climbing and we can advise with walks and trips on Skye and we have some bikes to lend out to visitors. We are close to the mountains and ten minutes from the sea.
