Just taken over a smallholding with sheep and horses in the Kingdom of Fife. The Sheep, mostly friendly are bred for spinning and felting type wools. Projects of all shapes and sizes - help for a few days or weeks welcome, improve your English, practice photography, enjoy the beach, sailing and other sports in St Andrews. Lots of easy tidying, painting and gardening jobs as well as building repairs to do some of which require a team effort to achieve, as well as Fencing, Walling / Dyking, ditch cleaning, occasional help with sheep, breaking, bringing on and riding 15 hh youngsters. New toilet and shower plumbing / installation, heating, decking and joinery projects preparing for summer campsite trial. Flexible hours to suit weather, events and all parties - average four hours per day.
We are between and within 1 km of, two Special Sites of Scientific Interest (SSSI), lots of wild bird life. Sounds idyllic and it can be but it is also: muddy, wet, cold and tiring in stormy winds. For your own safety you must be physically fit and healthy.
Taxi-bus service into the nearby Unversity town St Andrews - home of Golf and Cupar with great train and coach links to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen and Inverness.
I am not an experienced vegetarian cook, but will do my best if you are not a meat eater. Camping facilities with air beds, basic accommodation, wifi, basic clothes washing/laundry service. Well trained, obedient dogs accepted if kept on leads away from livestock. Non-smokers only please.
