Holiday Help โ€“ Might you and a friend or partner be interested in a couple of weeks in beautiful Arisaig, northwest Scotland? August 14-28. 40mins from Fort William, along the Harry Potter railway line. We are staying in Arisaig House (formerly a hotel) for a big family holiday (no infants – all grown up), and need help managing it all. My sister and I usually do this ourselves, but the family say they want us to hang out with them a bit more!

It would be 5 hours a day, with a day off each week. 2/3 hours early morning, to prepare, lay and clear breakfast, and prepare lunch picnic, then all day off till 6 pm, when a couple more hours of preparing (pre-cooked) dishes and laying/clearing supper. Generally keeping things tidy and the bar stocked. You can swim, kayak, play tennis, hike and catch up on Jacobite history (Bonnie Prince Charlie hid here) all from the front door. Arisaig House was also the HQ of the Special Operative Executive in WW11. We are a very easy going family and would love you to hang out with us if you feel like it, but doing your own thing is fine too!

Accommodation and meals included, and payment of ยฃ50 each per day. Hope so! Lulu
