UPDATE June 2018

An invitation to join Valery, David and our Team:-


APPLICATION PROCESS NOW CLOSED. Wonderful response. Thanks everyone for the interest.

2. Thanks to all who contacted us about the immediate vacancy for a Volunteer Helper. We are fortunate to have now filled all positions for 2018.

3. For JANUARY/FEBRUARY, 2019 we would welcome a SINGLE or COUPLE able to join us for between 3 and 4 months and able to give us 25 hours a week over 5 days. Depending on staffing arrangements at the time,you would have either a share in the newly refurbished cottage here or your own new build, winterised quirky hut with covered garden as free accommodation, a generous contribution to your food costs, impromptu hospitality and a welcome at our house.

4. For the rest of 2019 we welcome help with this 6 acre homestead looking from Abernethy's Old Caledonian pine forest to the mountains. As well as being busy with giving warm and authentic hospitality to folk from all around the globe we need to fix things that break or wear out, manage the laundry, wood fired hot tub and sauna. We maintain woodland and woodstocks, the flower and vegetable beds and care for a variety of livestock as well as for our talented and committed Team.

If you like the idea of joining us for one, two or three months, having a small classic touring caravan all to yourself and offering 25 hours a week with two free days, in exchange for the accommodation plus a food allowance, we would be really pleased to hear from you.

You will be a team player, vigorous, bursting to contribute, reliable and uncomplicated, Any specialist skills you may have and which chime with what we do and how we do it we will embrace warmly. Have a good idea of how you would use your free time - outdoor and indoor recreations.

In the last 16 years we have hosted over one hundred international Volunteer Helpers who assist us greatly in everything we do.
Most Volunteer Helpers find their way to us completely independently. We are though more than happy to hear from Help X ers interested in joining in.

While we have a full staff team here together with regular help from locals in the village we just love sharing experiences with you international Volunteer Helper folk particularly when we can learn something from you too.

Have a look at our website, particularly its 'Join the Team' page and if you have at least some relevant skills that would help us and can see yourself as a part of our busy and purposeful team then please do get in touch. When you have told us about yourself, the dates you are available and what you are looking for during your time away, let us have details of three referees who you can ask to support your interest in us, we can skype together and talk things over to see whether we might suit one another.

Free home made bread, a share, when available, of the hens' eggs, free, wifi, laundry, bike loan are also on offer together with a host of different experiences many of which may be new to you.

Depending on our Team arrangements at the time there may be an opportunity for you to take on up to 10 paid hours, above the minimum wage, beyond your volunteering contribution. This offer would be made only to experienced and confident Helpers.

"Small is Beautiful". While giving everything we can to our guests we also have a lot of fun. Do come.
