This 26-year-old woman got so fed up with her retail job, that she swapped her life in the big city for a tiny Scottish island – but now has to hold down NINE jobs because there’s no-one else to do them.

Sarah Moore quit her job selling clothes at Next in Edinburgh after becoming fed up of life in the city, so she moved to North Ronaldsay, in the Orkneys – which has a population of just 45 and average age of 65. Being the youngest person alive on the island, she soon found herself with no fewer than nine different jobs to hold down.

She started a job working as a carer, but now also puts in shifts as an air traffic controller, airport baggage handler, and also delivers the island’s post. Other than that, she’s a clerk for the island council, drives diggers on the farms, and even leads tours of the island’s only lighthouse. She also <a href="https://rumble.com/v32628-drone-lord-of-the-sheeps.html" target="_blank">herds sheep</a> and puts out fires! Quite the resume!

But Sarah says that, after moving to the island just two and a half years ago, she wouldn’t have it any other way. She says: “It’s not an easy life here and it it’s not a place anyone comes to get rich in, but I love it.

Sarah says that the huge difference between life in the city and on the island is that here she knows every local, whereas at home she only knew the people who lived right next door.
