News update - Coming up to Christmas we have a mixture of indoor and outdoor tasks depending on your skills. Indoors there will be woodworking, painting a floor and windows, moving furniture about; outdoors there's preparing the veg beds for next season, cutting hedges, collecting leaves. We also had a huge fruit harvest so now we're making lots of things from apples - preserves, juice, cider, and crisps!

Here's the bigger picture - we have a long term project renovating and extending a lovely 400 year old house and garden about half an hour north of Edinburgh. We like to work with the character and detail of the original building, using traditional materials and techniques where possible, so - for example - we have done repairs to lath and plaster in lime, and made our own shutters and panelling to match the originals. Outdoors we’re trying to grow our own fruit and veg, and make a beautiful garden in time! We would love some help with small building and finishing works, and tr... more inside

UPDATE: The next space will be from October onwards. I regret that I am unable to host more than one HelpXer at a time unless you make a compelling case!

I am a professional photographer living in a (single-storey) cottage in the early 19th century conservation village of Charlestown built for lime workers by the Earl of Elgin on the banks of the River Forth. It is a friendly but quiet place, as is my home. (If you are a party animal, this is not the HelpX for you!) NON SMOKERS ONLY, please.

Jobs for an active, easy-going multi-tasker would include:
• sanding and painting interior and exterior
window frames
• dog walking
• joinery
• gardening - I would prefer someone with interest and experience in gardening, plants and vegetables. Weeding and general garden maintenance is always required.

Painting (and sanding down) is an important task: the inside and outside of the conservatory and exterior of a couple of sheds and fencing.

In addition, my HelpXers need to... more inside

We have an outdoor challenge events business which organises cycling, walking, kayaking and swimming events raising money for charity. We operate from a farmhouse on the shores of Loch Tay in Highland Perthshire where we also have airbnb accommodation. Our business is very seasonal so we need short term help over the busy months. We are looking for willing helpers to join our friendly family team. Due to the nature of our business no two days are the same around here. Staying with us best suits flexible and self motivated individuals or couples who love wild open spaces and could help either with the business or the running of the house/garden. We have three children aged between 8 and 12 and two springer spaniels. Due to our remote location (no public transport and no shops within walking distance) staying with us will give you a true highland experience in a stunning part of Scotland and a taste of scottish rural life. This is the third season we have hosted helpx friends... more inside

This hostel is on the edge of the world. If you like it elemental -then this is the place for you. Situated on our working croft with its flock of black sheep, we are at the north end of Iona and just across the grass to the sea. In the distance are the islands of Staffa, Rum and Skye. It is a stunningly beautiful place.

The Hostel takes the environment and energy conservation seriously: we hold a 'Gold' Green Tourism Business Award and have an STB 4 Star rating. We have been voted best eco-hostel in Scotland.

We are currently looking for helpers around the hostel and croft.

In the hostel we are sticklers for cleanliness. It's hard work but there is lots of time to relax and enjoy the island. Outside we also need help with maintenance around the croft and garden. If you have practical skills and enjoy variety, then all the better.

We love helpers with a happy and outgoing approach to life, who can work hard and enjoy socialising with our guests.

Thank for taking th... more inside

We are a family run organic fruit and veg smallholding which is based in the Midlothians of Scotland just on the outskirts of edinburgh. We grow organic veg for our box delivery scheme and flowers which we sell at the weekly farmers market in Edinburgh. Help required would include weeding, quite a lot of that!, helping with the flowers, picking and possibly selling at the market, maybe some general maintenance.

This is a 5 acre walled garden. We have hens and goats and a ball crazy collie who loves to play.

We are looking for friendly people to help us, working 5 days a week, around 5 hours a day. Accommodation would be a caravan on our grounds, with self catering facilities. Food will be provided. There are regular buses from Dalkeith and Pathhead into Edinburgh. Please contact us if this sounds of interest to you.

At the moment we have space for 2 extra volunteers. Let us know if you are interested.

Dear HelpX volunteers,

Vacancy 24/09 till 25/10 2017: 4 days of 6 hours workig followed by 4 days off or 4 hours work a daily base.But we are flexible.

Armadale House B&B had the first HelpX volunteers in 2012. HelpX volunteers from all over the world came and helped out. A great experience not only for the B&B, but also for the volunteers.

The North Coast of Scotland is a brilliant place to do hill walking, surfing, bird watching, painting and photography.

HelpX volunteers mostly stay for a couple of weeks or even longer.

Basics tasks for the volunteers:
Being host to the guests, changing beds, some cleaning, laundry and serving breakfast.

In case the B&B is not to busy, there are always other jobs to do, just tell us your talents/skills and we will see if it fits in.

We will do our best to give you a great time to explore this remote corner of the world.

See our website for more information about our B&B and the North Coast of Scotland.
