Shepherd – Moray

A shepherd is required to form part of a team in running the sheep flock on a hill farming and sporting estate within the Cairngorms National Park.

The business is developing a flock of 2400 Blackface ewes, alongside a herd of 30 suckler cows, with a further 1500 or so wethers running on the hill. You will report to the head shepherd and be responsible for all aspects of hill flock management, as well as assisting with general farm and estate work. Good working dogs are essential.

Accommodation will be provided on farm. The farm is convenient for the local primary school in Tomintoul which feeds in to the well respected Speyside High School.
