Seasonal Gardener & Estate Worker

Are you a nature enthusiast with a passion for hands-on experience at a breathtaking coastal highland estate? Kingairloch Estate, spanning 14,000 acres on the northeast corner of the Morvern peninsula, seeks an individual eager to immerse themselves in nature whilst learning and developing new skills. Our estate boasts a main residence, self-catering properties, and extensive hill grounds with deer stalking, a restaurant, a productive walled garden, a working livestock farm with a small herd of Highland cattle, and more!

As a Seasonal worker at Kingairloch Estate, you will work closely with our knowledgeable gardener (and others from time to time) and participate in various activities within the walled garden and the wider estate grounds. You will gain hands-on experience in raising vegetables and flowers, from sowing seeds to transplanting, caring for crops, weeding, and cutting grass as well as wider estate tasks such as rhododendron control and ground works. By mutual agreement, there’s an option to extend the working season to assist the sporting department during autumn and winter if this is of interest to the candidate.

In return the estate will offer you an attractive package including newly refurbished accommodation and a weekly wage commensurate with hours worked. On the job training will be provided for all roles undertaken. Being situated in a remote area, a driving license is necessary, and workers are encouraged to possess a certain level of resilience.

The estate and its surroundings offer stunning beauty, with the peninsula itself often hailed as the best-kept secret in Scotland. Kingairloch is a haven for diverse wildlife, birds, and flora throughout the year. Situated on Loch a’ Choire, the estate provides opportunities for wild swimming, kayaking, and canoeing. Additional outdoor pursuits such as hill walking and mountain biking are easily accessible.
