Slightly random, but here goes.. 

There is a wonderful hotel/restaurant who is looking for chef support in their high end restaurant. The Cross is set in a beautiful, off-road Highland river valley, with four acres of its own mixed, native woodland. It used to be a tweed mill and is set on the river Gynach, close to the river Spay. Bird song, forest, mushrooms, red squirrel, beaver. Ten min walk from a main line train station to London and Inverness; With bus services. 

The position would suit well someone crazy about wildlife, outdoor living, hiking, photography, kayaking, skiing - those kind of passions. The Cross are looking for a cook with experience in a high end restaurant who can support the main chef. 

They are in the Michelin Guide and have three AA rosettes, specialising in fine wines. They are doing well, but half-capacity as they need more help. Please pass on the details if you know if anyone who might love the setting. 
There is a general staffing crisis all over the Highlands (as everywhere else). If you are looking for jobs in hospitality / catering industries, and want to live more wildly, now would be a good time to make a jump.

    I’ve copied it onto the cookery/foodie forum I’m a regular on. 😊

    Not trying to be picky. Just giving more accurate info for someone that might be interested and Googles it. The Cross is a fair distance from the 'Spey' at Kingussie, and it's the Gynack Burn that flows into the Spey.

    About a ten minute walk.
