Want to live in a Scottish Castle

for a week and get paid to do so.




EDINBURGH, Scotland (WZTV) -- Coffee aficionados, this is for you.
Gevalia Kaffe wants to pay someone $5,000 to live in a Scottish castle for a week and drink bottomless coffee. Even decaf coffee lovers can apply.

Hold my horse for me! I'll be back in 1 week!

No diet, no hoof. No hoof, no horse. No horse is not an option!

To me they're stretching the word 'castle' quite a bit. Carlowrie Castle is quite modern, having been built in the mid 1800s; more country house than castle.

It's a luxury hotel and events venue, one of the top ones in Europe.

Still a week in Scotland would probably be better than a week in Ohio. I want to try Haggis. Traditional Scottish Haggis is banned in the U.S. because it has sheep lungs in it.

Why is haggis banned in the USA? - Scotland Now

But if I can't take Carmen I might pass. lol I get separation anxiety leaving her by herself for 3 hours. I used to drink that brand of coffee regularly but it just got to pricey.

You have sheep lungs in the US, @RegalCharm , so you could DIY. I'm sure @Caledonian can furnish you with an authentic recipe. Just take the ingredients list to your local friendly butcher. I'm sure Carmen will be very happy to share haggis with you.

PS: And don't forget to hurl it first!

Just winging it is not a plan
