  • Descrição


    Was a workaway guest myself, enjoyed it so much it became full time a few years ago. But now my travelling has been curtailed somewhat because of a retrieved 200 yr old cottage (in Shetland) and a garden that needs some tender loving care. I am a joiner/builder and a trained chef.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    The Shetland isles has a culture, landscape and geology all of its own, not Scottish not Norse but a unique Island blend both mixed in with the Ancient Picts. the whole island is rich in archaeology.
    The only piece of arctic tundra in the British isle can be found here. Shetland is a Geo-park too, some of the oldest rocks on the planet can also be found here.
    I fish and forage the coast line for shellfish and seaweed, grow vegetables organically, am also skilled cook, and multi skilled builder mainly carpentry, any of my knowledge can be passed to you in practice, if you wish to learn.

  • Ajuda


    Mainly gardening help, will need to dig up bulbs, shrubs, take tree cuttings and relocate them, extend the organic veg patch also a general clear up and reclaim of an old overgrown garden.
    On my to-do list there is some garden hardscaping, building cold frames and making some beehive design compost makers also some general maintenance of the cottage, inside and outside tasks.
    If you are skilled all the better, if you are not, training can be given, enthusiasm is more important than skill to me. The workaway guideline of 25 hours help a week will be asked for from travellers here. Cooking and housework will be shared between us all, on top of the 25 hours a week.

    The local general store is a short walk up the hill and the shoreline a short walk down the hill.
