We live in a beautiful village on the edge of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Walking and cycling are all possible to do with ease from the front door, including a Munro ( mountain over 3000feet high). Watersports are close by too. We have a lovely old house built in 1901 that requires some TLC(tender loving care). It includes a large garden that has become overgrown. We are looking for help to redecorate the house and to regain control over the garden! We have 4 bedrooms so helpers could either have a bedroom each or a couple could have a double bed. We have two cats. One very nosy, the other very shy...We can offer short-stay accommodation and excellent food in exchange for undertaking a range of indoor and garden tasks. We may require occasional companionship to an elderly member of family who sometimes stays overnight. Non smokers preferred - we are a no smoking household.

I run a yacht charter business and a croft on the Isle of Eigg. I have a teenage son at high school. My croft is on the NW side of Eigg with wonderful views of Rum. Singing Sands is a short walk away.
On the croft there are tasks with sheep, chickens, fencing, building and caravan maintenance and garden.

The work on the croft and boat is physically demanding and volunteers need to be strong and capable. Anyone with good cooking skills considered too.

I am offering camping/caravan/IEHT volunteer house (Nov-March) and food in exchange for help. There is wifi.

Volunteer opportunities coming up:

We have hosted 19 volunteers over the 3 years so far, from England, Canada, Spain, France, New Zeeland.

The jobs will take about 6 hours a day for 1 to 2 weeks.
We provide a small caravan and access to the kitchen and shower and wc. WiFi is available and you may have some access to the swimming pool.
