Pet sitting & House sitting job in Eastern Scotland
Eastern Scotland - Angus
We are looking for someone to look after our house and most importantly our very lovable dog Millie from mid August to the middle of October. With our rural location we feel that our house would be ideally suited for a couple and owning or hiring a car would be essential.
Our property is situated between the villages of Edzell and Fettercairn on the border of both Aberdeenshire and Angus giving easy access to both the lovely coast and Glens around us. The house is in a pretty, rural location, it's detached, sits on its own on the edge of a hill with the garden surrounding it and offers beautiful views over The Howe of the Mearns. We also have a small one bedroom holiday letting flat that sits above our garage which we would hope that our house sitters would be happy to oversee and be remunerated for so doing. Bookings for the flat are done through a holiday company. Guests access the keys from a key safe so it is really only the weekly cleaning and turning around of the flat that is needed.
The area in which we live offers a wide variety of opportunities to walk, cycle, golf and fish and almost all from our doorstep. We are approximately 35 minutes from Aberdeen, and 94 miles from Edinburgh by car but there are many smaller towns and villages around. Royal Deeside is just a short drive over the Cairn o'Mount where the towns of Banchory, Ballater and Braemar can be found.
Millie is our small, chocolate brown, working cocker spaniel who is going to be 12 years old this July. She is very affectionate and loves her daily walks ..... the longer the better! She is also very well behaved and everyone who meets her loves her to bits.
If you are interested in our house sit we would be delighted to hear from you to discuss this further and are only too happy to answer any questions you may have.
