Description
We are 9 miles north of Inverness on the Black Isle. The house is south facing and set in 6 acres, divided between garden, paddocks, (2 mostly retired ponies)and a small wood with a stream. We have bees and ducks.
The garden is lawn with organic raised beds. We are looking to establish more growing areas and native hedgerows...creative input would be appreciated. We have a polytunnel from which we harvest salad/veggies.
We have a log biomass central heating system coupled with solar thermal panels. We aim to be almost self sufficient in electricity from our PV battery system. We require help generally and for processing local timber into firewood. Mainly splitting and stacking, we have a tractor driven splitter so no axe required! Ideally WWOOFers would come for 2-3 week spells. Accommodation is within the house and en-suite. You would be more than welcome to eat with the family (3 vegans and a veggie) or use the kitchen for your own veggie/vegan meals.
