Former smallholding on the Orkney island of Shapinsay, with around one kilometre of shoreline, gardens and grounds. House contains ensuite guest bedrooms and one for volunteer(s).In the summer Guests come for wildlife, archaeology,etc. and can also do craftwork and artwork,and join in with island life. Volunteers could also do these things year round -- few if any guests in the winter but maintenance and prep need doing.
In return for help volunteers get an ensuite room of their own or two sharing, use of other rooms, meals, lifts to and from the ferry, the opportunity to join in with whatever is going on in the island, and in Kirkwall -- good ferry service. Lots of traditional music -- I can lend instruments, fiddle, guitar, drum.
I am looking for helpers for JUNE/JULY for maintenance jobs inside and outside, cooking, creative input, MUST BE DOG LOVER as I have a lively and loving young collie. It is very quiet on the island, 320 folk but no pub and my house has no near neighbours, 2 km from the ferry. There is a shop and a cafe, and various community activities in the summer months.If it sounds like your scene message me!
