Description
For 2018 only experienced horse riders need apply. If you are a couple then at least one of you must be experienced. Also I would prefer that you come for at least 3-4 weeks and more if it works out. There may be indoor basic carpentry/restoration type work at times.

We have one acre of garden and the rest is croftland for Shetland sheep, Highland cows, 2 Highland ponies, ducks, hens, bees and the occasional pig. Jobs - planting out veg, weeding, picking fruit, strimming, cutting grass, fencing repairs, dry-stone dykeing, clipping sheep(end July/beg Aug). I have one milking cow which will need milking from April.

Kayaks, bikes, sea-fishing, brown trout fishing. Accommodation in separate well insulated cabin (with loo but no heating) next to the house but you would eat and live with us during the day. We are 1 mile from the sea and there are sandy beaches near by. There will be an opportunity to learn basket-making and spinning.
