The winters are cold and wet, and travel is limited, so applicants should enjoy plenty of solitude and beer. You run the pub yourself and maintain the 50-acre island, which is also home to a 14th century castle. The landlord job requires a 10-year commitment, so there's plenty of time to think really about any and everything. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
