Job Details


Position available until end of April 2024. 

We have an exciting opportunity for you to be part of the small, friendly team maintaining and developing the historic walled gardens of Jura House (dating back to 1812) on the Ardfin Estate, Isle of Jura, off the west coast of Scotland. 

Working closely with the Head Gardener, you will play a vital role in the upkeep of the walled garden, which includes a Knot garden and Potager.  As well as maintaining these key garden areas, there are also the grounds around Jura House and the small, exclusive luxury hotel within the Ardfin Estate.  

You will also support the propagation and growing of seasonal bedding, cut flowers and veg for the Ardfin Hotel and for The Jura Hotel and pub within the village of Craighouse. 

You should be a skilled gardener with previous experience of working in a high quality horticultural setting.  You should be enthusiastic and be able to work efficiently to a high standard, either within a team or on your own. You should have a passion for the outdoors, whatever the weather and enjoy a challenge. 

Jura is a stunning, but remote island with just over 200 inhabitants, one road, one pub, one shop and 6000 Red Deer!  If the great outdoors is your thing, then Jura offers it in abundance. Wildlife such as Sea Eagles, Otters and Seals, wild mountains, lochs, rivers, beaches and of course the sea, is all here to be enjoyed. 

Shared accommodation in an estate house is provided. 

Please apply in writing to or phone 07850 545645
