Smallholding in the Cairngorms needing looking after
We are a couple who moved up from England 4 years ago. We built our own home, started our own business and have more recently become sheep farmers. Live is very busy, so a holiday would be very nice, we have a few different animals that need looking after in different ways so finding the right person is very important.
Our Home & Location
We live in an awarding winning 2 bed eco house in the Cairngorm National Park with stunning views. The house is open plan on one floor with just under 2 acres of land. We have a forestry walk on our doorstep aswell as many other lovely walks only a short drive away. There are plenty of outdoor activities to do aswell as many tourist attractions to visit. There is a local shop 3 miles away which stocks a great range.
Responsibilities & Pets
I have 4 spaniels, 2 oldies & 2 young ones who are full of mischief & energy, they require 2 walks a day, luckily we have plenty of lovely walks on our doorstep. They are our family & are spoilt rotten, they have access to the whole house so cuddles on the sofa in the evening are the norm!! They also have access to an outdoor kennel for when they need to be left on their own for a few hours. I have 1 very friendly cat who tends to keep out of the way of the dogs. On our land we have 8 pigs which require feeding twice a day, they are all very friendly & love a tummy rub but they are big animals so experience with dealing with larger animals is preferred. We have a few chickens that will need feeding daily but in return will produce lovely eggs.
