Description
A 5 acre non-commercial croft with numerous vegetable beds, an orchard, shelter belts with 2 polytunnels and 2 greenhouses to be maintained. We grow fruit, and a wide range of vegetables and sell surplus vegetables.
We have chickens, 2 cows and calf, bees and a cat - have pigs sometimes. We aim to be as self sufficient as possible. Work will include planting, weeding, hedge trimming, log chopping, pruning, peat cutting, woodland maintenance, building maintenance projects, and helping us with our holiday cottage changeover when needed.
Magnificent views and a beautiful beach are close by - this is a great place for hill walking, fishing and bird watching. Good home cooking and friendly hosts happy to help those wanting to improve their English or Gaelic.
Other interests: Scottish music, Gaelic, heritage and history, films, politics. Bikes available for wwoofer use. Lifts available to main village of Broadford or Kyle 3 miles away.
