Rural break for an animal lover in NE Scotland
Hi, we live in a beautiful, rural setting in NE Scotland. Our house is a converted steading set in 1.5 acres of land.
I sometimes have to work in london and need to find an outdoorsy person to pet sit my animals during these and holiday periods
Our Home & Location
We live in a detached stone house at the end of an unmade road in a very quiet area. It is within 5 miles of Stonehaven, about a mile from the coast and 20 miles from Aberdeen. Lots to do and beautiful scenery to see.
Responsibilities & Pets
I have 2 horses on grass at my home that need to be checked daily and have their water filled up. My goat is a great character and likes a bit of company, as well as apples, carrots, brown bread, horse food and various weeds! My cat is quite old, sleeps a lot and needs her food and drink topped up daily. She has a dirt tray nowadays that needs changing weekly.
I have 5 lovely dogs, the biggest one, Gina, is walked by a dog walker when I’m away, the other 4 are small mixed breeds, including two Spanish rescues. Generally a charge round the garden (1.5 acres) for a few hours is ok short term, or taking the four out for a walk while Gina is with the dog walker would work too....
The dogs get an early breakfast and a 5pm dinner!
You could have use of a small car if necessary.
Some watering would be nice, I have an active greenhouse and veg plot from which you can help yourselves! + More info
