Remote Scottish Isle Of Rum Looking for Hardy People to Live Off The Grid

There are lots of remote islands around the world and once in a while, there comes a dream job, where an administrator is needed to take care of these secluded places.
This next dream job was posted by the administrative bodies of the Isle of Rum from Scotland’s Inner Hebrides in the district of Lochaber and they are looking to re-inhabit the island. So, the job is not one in the traditional sense, rather one for people who are looking to change their lives and move to an abandoned island to grow its population.
The island currently has as many as 40 residents and there are lots of jobs available from fishing to food production and tourism. There are also some construction sites set up now as the Community Trust together with the Scottish Government’s Rural and Islands Housing Fund are building 4 eco-friendly homes in the area.

 

 

The houses can be either bought or rented, and priority is offered to families with children or those who work in a unique sector. The remote island can be reached by ferries or boats and vehicles are only allowed on the island in exceptional cases.
The Island of Rum has been considered a protected area and is a paradise for birdwatchers and nature enthusiasts.
So, if you’re looking for a lifestyle change or simply want to live on a pristine island, far from crowded cities, then the Isle of Rum might be a great option to consider.

    Well where’s the incentive? Are waged higher? Are houses cheaper? Is the internet cheaper. Why the fuck would anybody waste their lives going there when they could live in a City and get coffee, sex, and conversation? What are they offering?

    Describe hardy? Is there spiders? Does Gerard Butler visit? Is it mandatory to eat haggis? I have a great sense of humor and could get along with the devil, so I’m hoping for neighbors of the same quality 😉

      Hardy people? You’re joking, everything they consume is provided for by a regular ferry, subsidised by the “mainlanders” – a term used as a slurr/insult – all provided in packets, and the booze is double the food delivery. They’re all boozers and druggies and scruffy smelly degenerates scamming visitors whom they treat with contempt. Contractors get ripped off big time, for thousands of £s. They get drunk and drugged up and drive around in their unlicensed and uninsured vehicles and it’s a matter of time before a child get seriously hurt. There’s been over the years people move there looking for a better life only to be treated deplorably by these horrible people. The first thing you see as you leave the boat is a drunk and stoned rope thrower who calls himself a pier master, remove his dark glasses and you will the red bloodshot eyes. They’re a complete joke and all the people in Lochaber know about them and really dislike them, they have knicknames for them btw…
