  • Descrição


    My need is urgent (now) and short-term as only need help until early to mid December.

    I am Ali, a mother of 2 boys (5 and a half years and18 months old), self-employed running a small land-use / environmental consultancy, living in a stunning remote location miles up a HIghland glen with partner Donnie who is a head stalker/keeper/wildlife ranger for a local estate. Location is beautiful and remote, deep in the hills with plenty of fresh air and amazing scenery with villages of Kingussie (11 miles), Newtonmore (14 miles) and Aviemore (20 miles) nearby. Five year old is very sociable, a lot of fun and adores new company! Little one is a very happy and animated little chap generally, but has a mild breathing issue when distressed (entirely avoidable through simple management so experience with children is strongly preferred), still snoozes through the day so needs either buggy/stroller walking or falls asleep in the car if we are out. Almost walking so a bit of a late developer ... but is also a heavyweight so has a lot to carry on his new little legs.

    Visitors will be made most welcome and can learn and experience life in one of the most stunning and remote estates in the Cairngorms, once a traditional sporting estate now focuses on wildlife and habitat management, as well as be able to learn of environmental / ecological projects undertaken by Ali if interested and come along on farm or woodland visits. Excellent outdoor opportunities (walking, hiking, biking, etc) throughout the Cairngorm area or from the doorstep and social activity in Aviemore.

  • Ajuda


    I am desperately seeking someone who would be able to give me time each week day (open to options on number of hours a week or days a week a workaway wishes to help but prefer full working hours as I have deadlines to complete) to focus on my home and field-based work, by looking after the youngest child (walking in the buggy/stroller to get to sleep mostly and amusing ro fixing lunch during wake times), and helping playing with oldest boy after school and giving general minor help around the house/garden. Need someone until end of October at least to fulfil work contracts. Pocket money as well as board and lodgings given and potentially some car use if insurance permits but to date this seems complex so own car would also be helpful but definitely not essential.

    Although daylight is beginning to get limited, can have have time to walk, roam and see the local area. Lots of bits and bobs to do in the garden to amuse but also not essential. Opportunities to come with me on my work trips which are all local eco-projects/environmental land-based projects with the 17 month old. Keen to learn some Spanish but delighted with any nationality. :)
