We are a small charity located in North-East Fife Scotland. Our aims are:

CONSTITUTION OF MONIMAIL TOWER PROJECT II 2004 revision

1. The name of the project shall be Monimail Tower Project II hereinafter called “the project”.
2. The objects of the project shall be:-
2.1 To promote the benefit of persons who are presently undergoing a period of mental stress, without distinction of political, religious or other opinions, by associating with local authorities and other voluntary organisations in a common effort to provide facilities in the interest of the social welfare of, and with the object of improving conditions of life for the said persons.
2.2 To promote the advancement of knowledge in the fields of horticulture and related fields, particularly for those whose environment does not give them the opportunity to experience these things.
2.3 For the benefit of the public to promote, encourage and engage in, either on its own or in conjunction with others, the restoration, refurbishment, preservation and maintenance of Monimail Tower, Monimail, by Letham, Fife, including adjacent lands and buildings and access thereto, by whatever means the project thinks fit.
2.4 To secure the establishment and management of a residential centre for activities promoted by the project in furtherance of the above objects or any of them.

As well as growing most of our own vegetables, we also plant trees, haul firewood, maintain and repair our ancient walls and the tower.

We only offer one week stays at present, sometimes we extend these but it's the exception rather than the rule. We try and host several volunteers at the same time so people get a chance to work together.

We expect volunteers to join in the cooking rota with ourselves. (The house is vegetarian and most shared meals are vegan.) Help is always on hand and non cooks need not fear! Washing and chopping vegetables is just as appreciated!

We have a large static caravan for our guests and volunteers. We might also have space to stay in the house or tower.
