    Interesting job , good ground and very experienced Head Stalker

    However the pay is a disgrace especially when you look at the job description.

    Perhaps its a monthly pay figure.

    I was getting paid that much 20 years ago with my first full time keepering job, nice to see some places stay in the past.
    It would be a cracking job for a young lad with no ties, but not many very experience guys out there would go for a job paying that little, better earning a decent crust and stalking for a hobby.

    For some that's a job of a life time no mortgage no dog food bills.There will be certainly a few kick back and the fact that you will never need to work again. If my roots were not firmly set down i would have applied

    I hate to break your wee dream of the perfect Highland life amid the deer, but being a stalker or ghillie is bloody hard work in all weathers. The fairy tale doesn't last long. I was ghillieing and then stalking for more than that 15 years ago and if it hadn't been for out of season forestry culling work, foxing and having my own sheep I would have struggled. It's a pish salary, but some keen fellow will go for it.

    Have you had a look to see what the other jobs advertised are being paid ,well lets just say the stalkers job is the worst paid by a long shot and then sum .

    The thing about the job is your up for all the utility bills and council tax on 1000.00= per month theres also no vehicle spoken of with the job .

    There looking for an apprentice most certainly not a family man .

    There also looking for all the certification already in place, so if your not well versed in the larder work , with pony extraction and everything else your no even in with a shout .

    The job is a joke in so many ways .

    Very poor pay, I was getting that much twenty years ago with better perks, but know doubt they will fill it as there are more qualified men than there are jobs to go round.

    They pay the council tax and it is a family home on offer. 40 usually mon to friday but time off in leau when working antisocial hours, Full description in the doc files on the right hand side. you pay utes though. A good wage for the labouring classes. 4k a year more for the housemaid. Mind you free house and council tax adds another 5k Safety clothing etc will be thrown in so it is not that poorly paid. Depends on the tips and sidies.
