Free self catering accommodation on Isle of Skye in return for help in garden and croft.

18 June -14 July

Hello folks.

For the last two years I have been building a load bearing strawbale bothy, but between working fulltime and building the bothy my dog, garden and croft have been badly neglected. The strawbale bothy is nearly finished, but I don't want to leave my garden and croft to deteriorate any further.

I'm looking for folks who are comfortable working outdoors, getting muddy, maybe scratched by brambles and hopefully know a wee bit about horticulture to help rescue the garden and croft.

So here's the deal:

I will be moving out of my two bedroom traditional stone built croft house and into the bothy so that I can finish it in the evenings after work and at weekends.

This leaves my house available for helpexers. There are two double bedrooms so it would ideally suit couples or friends happy to share a bed! This will be a different experience from the las... more inside

Hi i'm Brendan,
I have an off grid nine acre smallholding on the isle of skye in a former quarry ( 10,000 tons of landscaping done ten years ago ,and eight thousand trees planted there after ) on which i have lived for over ten years , i have a large garden /a beautiful river ,and run a small sawmill business to supply the regional market .
I work as a teacher of woodwork in the local collage.
As everything here is off grid, accommodation can vary from a converted container to a tree house or a double decker bus or the bothy in the big shed .
I'm needing help in and about the garden path building and manual labour in the sawmill as i have an issue with heavy lifting due to an old injury.
I am also a musician ,so their is a fair bit of music about the place and the atmosphere is pretty relaxed.
I would love to meet motivated people who can share their skills .
hope to see you
cheers
