Our small busy croft is home to 12 cows, a bull, 14 sheep, 250 hens plus a few ducks and turkeys, 8 hives of bees, 1 friendly working dog, 2 riding horses, 3 cats, and their 2 owners Alex & Lenice,
3 polytunnels, vegetable plots, young fruit trees and fruit bushes.

The croft is located just outside the beautiful village of Plockton “Jewel of the Highlands”
Just 2 minutes walk from the railway station on the Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh line, across the water from the Isle of Skye.

We grow, make and sell jams and chutneys, seasonal vegetables and eggs, here on our croft.

We are looking for help with planting, weeding, growing veg, harvesting and general help in the garden and polytunnels, daily tasks include feeding the poultry, collecting eggs and other routine jobs around the croft.
Flexible hours to suit weather/season, normally 5 hours per day which includes closing the hens in at dusk, in return we will provide accommodation in a spacious 2 bedroom static caravan on the croft, with cooking facilities, a shower and toilet, all bed linen and towels, plus food provisions provided.

WiFi available.
Bicycles available.

A minimum stay of 14 days would be ideal.

In the village there is a shop, 2 pubs with traditional music sessions twice a week and a restaurant, in Kyle there's a supermarket, Banks, Chemist etc.
