Description
We are an old big house set in 3 acres in a beautiful, unspoilt Scottish glen. The house dates mainly from c 1850 although there are portions that are older. We are rennovating the house and the grounds and we'd love to welcome Wwoofers to help us in the garden with things like ground clearing; wood chopping and stacking; bracken clearing; mending & building fencing; path laying; general gardening; rhododendron taming and shed building. In addition we have a large polytunnel which needs clearing / raised bed building / cultivation (depending on season). Points of interest include: we have an additional 2 acre field next to inland loch nearby for which we have fishing rights and a small boat. Our land is bordered by a fast-running stream and we have a dam that connects to a currently in-operational turbine which we are also looking to get back into action. If the weather is bad - which it frequently is in Scotland! - there is also some indoor decorative work if you prefer to stay dry!
