This may seem to be a great deal seeing how I rent (my son) Henry's or any room in the house (except mine) for £100.00 a night. Fair Isle is great! try to remember not to over idealize it. I'm sort of a wild artist guy needing some help getting some stuff done in a place where it's hard to find people to help beyond my good neighbors. I like to help other artists too as I have been helped by many people in my life too., I know a visit to Fair Isle is an inspiration for a lifetime. If you have a grant or sabbatical and want to work out a longer stay without the work hours and a reduced rate let's talk. If you are traveling with a partner or friend let me know, that might work too. It's all new and I am working with new ideas. I will only accept a few applicants each year.

Originally I was planning "The Wild Winter Artist in Residence" as Winter has fewer calls for guests at the Guesthouse and the proper guestsrooms could be used then. Though if paying guests turn up you may be asked to move to my son's rooms until vacant again. Does the idea of being in a remote place by the Ocean in a wild Winter storm appeal to your creativity? I realized I need yard and garden work in early Spring. Also house painting during the Summer. Other guests may or will come and go during your stay. Which is usually interesting to say the least.
