A "Natural" Building Project in the Scottish Highlands.

Hi HelpXers,

***We are not currently looking for volunteers.***

We live, together with our ten year old cocker spaniel, Kim, in a beautiful wooded glen (valley) near a village called Spinningdale about 50 miles (80 km.) north of Inverness in the northern Scottish Highlands. We have a 6 acre (2.4 hectare) former croft (a "croft" is a traditional small Highland farmstead), which we are gradually developing as a Permaculture site. We are surrounded by 1700 acres (700 hectares) of stunning natural woodland belonging to a conservation body called The Woodland Trust. We help look after the woods as Voluntary Wardens.

Jim is an environmental scientist with a particular interest in ecological design and sustainable building using natural materials.

Saddhavati is an artist and teacher whose other interests include meditation and yoga.

We are nearing completion of our "natural" home. It is a "passive solar" design b... more inside

******* Help needed now for barn building!


We are starting a new family business. We recently purchased some farm land on the Black Isle and hope to set up a yurt camp site. We are looking for volunteers to help with all aspects of this.

The farm is in a stunning location overlooking the moray firth on the peninsular called the Black Isle. The farm is 150 acres of rough grazing, native woodland cliffs and shore line as well as a couple of more productive field that we hope to use for hay and possibly crops in the future. We have a small flock of Hebridean sheep, 11 ewes plus their lambs. We are new to farming so are starting small and hope to increase our flock as well as get other animals in the future such as pigs and cattle. We also have 3 horses that are used for riding but may also be used a bit on the farm for jobs such as timber extraction.

We plan to be renting out yurts by next summer (2015) so there is a lot to be done by then! There are no buildings on the ... more inside

We live on an 11.5 acre croft (smallholding/farm) in the very north of Scotland just 26 miles short of John 'O Groats (the most northerly village on mainland Scotland).
We have sheep, goats, pigs and hens and try to live/run the croft as green and environmentally friendly as possible, everything is done by hand and we don’t allow tractors on the land.
2014 we have built a dry stone walled roundhouse with reciprocal framed turf roof for our goats, and a bridge across our burn (small river) with help from volunteers.
2015 build projects are a second larger roundhouse, raised beds in the vegetable garden, planting 3,000 trees and a walapini (below ground greenhouse).
Other jobs you might want to try or may be asked to help with are putting up new stock fencing and farm gates, hay cutting by hand (using a scythe) and hand baling, clearing weeds such as doc, thistle and nettles, moving large rocks/stones to the goat field for a play area for the goats, and of course the animals.

We are looking for young people 16–30 years old to become residential volunteers at our City and Farm Communities near Edinburgh.

The role involves living alongside vulnerable young people at risk of long-term homelessness to help them develop practical skills, develop their social networks and create a bank of good experiences to counter tough ones they’ve had in the past. At the farm there are extra responsibilities for helping out with chicken care and encouraging community members to get involved with farm work.

Ideal applicants will have the ability to build relationships with young people who can sometimes demonstrate challenging behaviour and have the ability to maintain their personal boundaries.
Applicants are required to be role models. We need individuals who are enthusiastic and creative and able to share their interests.

Volunteers are required for placements of a minimum of 6 months. Accommodation and financial incentives are provided.
