What are your plans for 2020? From March 2020, we shall need some assistance for both the holiday cottages and in the garden to welcome our visitors. In particular, we do need someone who speaks good English.

We are in the Highlands of Scotland near the Isle of Skye. We hope to hear from you.

Do you want to explore the Isle of Skye and the North West Highlands? Attadale would suit either two friends or a couple as space is limited. Ideally for a minimum of three weeks, preferably one month please. Last year we had at least three volunteers returning for a second time, which must be a recommendation! Check out their reviews below.

Beautiful estate with large garden open to the public and four holiday cottages situated in wild country near the Isle of Skye. Garden open from April to October. Holiday cottages available for visitors from March.

Train station 2 minutes walk away. Limited internet available. Food is provided which you can choose yourself and you will cook for yourselves in your own kitchen.

Free self-contained good-quality accommodation (includes sitting room with kitchen, plus bathroom and separate bedroom) is on offer for two friends or a couple willing to carry out housework and gardening for 30 hours a week.

You would help with cleaning cottages and you may be helping with gardening too.

Monday & Tuesday free to explore the local area. You will be part of a team of, at least, 3 working in the gardens so you need to be a team worker.

You need to be: - honest & reliable
- self-motivated
- fit to do physical labour
- a non-smoker
- capable of working on your own
- happy with semi-secluded rural life
- keen to learn new gardening skills

For a minimum of two days every week, you are free to explore the area. 30 minutes drive to the Isle of Skye and convenient for exploring North towards Applecross and Torridon. Minimum stay 3-4 weeks. You can walk for miles, go fishing, and borrow one of our bicycles. The nearest village is 15 minutes' drive and we shall give you a lift to the shops so you can choose your own food.

Previous volunteers recommend but please be aware it is a remote area with limited public transport. See photos below of the garden and the four holiday cottages across the field.
