We need a house sitter

Highlands and Islands - Orkney Islands


My husband and I are looking for sitters preferably with some farm experience to help us in Orkney in May 2022. We have 13 alpacas, 4 pet valais sheep, 1 pig, a little barn cat and herd of Hebridean ewes, lambs and tups.

It is quite a full on role so is probably better suited to a couple as it's quite a lot to manage for one person.

It would probably take around 1 hour in the morning and the same at night, and would comprise of feeding, watering, taking a few of the animal out and back in at night and possibly some mucking out.

The accommodation is a small farm bothy (Orkney Farm Bothy) set over 2 floors with the living accommodation downstairs and the bedroom and toilet upstairs. It is located in Stromness and a short walk to the centre of town.

We look forward to hearing from you, and please do ask away if you have any questions.

We thoroughly enjoyed this house-sit. The owners were very welcoming, extremely nice and friendly. There was good communication between them and ourselves with regard to looking after the animals. The house was comfortable, had all the facilities we needed and in a great location.
