Description
We are an big house set in 3 acres in a beautiful, unspoilt Scottish glen. The house dates mainly from c 1850. We are renovating the house and the grounds and we'd love to welcome Wwoofers to help us in the garden with things like pond digging; ditch and drainage work; rubble / gravel moving for the driveway and other hard surface areas; ground clearing; wood chopping and stacking; bracken clearing; mending & building fencing; path laying; general gardening including some raised bed vegetable cultivation; rhododendron taming and burning. We have an additional 2 acre field next to inland loch nearby for which we have fishing rights and a small boat - we'd love to build a shed / jetty there too. 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. Please note the weather is frequently wet and although we can supply some sizes of wellies and waterproofs you will need a few changes of clothes and woollens are recommended.
