Looking for help insulating a building on our croft using straw clay (light earth) infill. May have other jobs as well.

If you have some experience in stonemasonry and construction we could have another job for you helping to rebuild a small, early 19th century traditional croft cottage. We are offering a year of free rent in the cottage to the right person who will take on this job and get the cottage wind and watertight.

Easy going place to stay. Croft is entirely off grid so mod cons are few and far between. We have a propane hot shower, compost toilet etc.

About 4 hours a day with 2 days off a week is all we ask and we are flexible. We provide 2 meals on working days which will be vegetarian or pescetarian. Can provide for vegans too.

We have a small touring caravan available for accomodation. If you're an artistic type the caravan can be your canvas and you could paint the caravan and decorate the inside.

We keep rare breed geese, ducks, chickens, cows and a pony.

Pets may be acceptable as long as they are well behaved around other animals.. both farm animals and domestic cats plus we have one other dog here too. Children are ok as well.

Smoking is allowed anywhere on the croft.
