We are currently looking for helpers!

We are located on a small beautiful island right next to the Isle of Skye! (25 min. ferry)

What do we ask for?

All we ask is 5 hours work a day (6 days a week).
You will be helping as a handy person, housekeeper, KP or in the bar. We have work from 5th of Nov to the 5th of Feb (excluding 23rd of Dec to 8th Jan). Basic cleaning & moving furniture to prepare for painting and some basic painting. We are closed at this time. We wouldn't require anyone from the 23rd of Dec to the 8th of Jan. There isn't much on the island over the festive season so that would be a good chance to try the famous Hogmanay celebrations in Edinburgh or a traditional Scottish Hogmanay in Inverness.

What do you get in return?

- Accommodation - room in Raasay House
- Food (breakfast, lunch and cooked dinner)
- You can join in on our activities! (If already running)

If you would like to join our team for a while just send us an e-mail with some infor... more inside

Our farm is situated 3 miles from Dufftown (the Malt Whisky Capital of The World)in the north east of Scotland we are currently converting a steading into holiday accommodation and are in the final stages of this. We need enthusiastic hard working people to help us finish off the project. Outdoor work weather permitting is picking and pointing stonework, laying decking and wall and fence building. Indoor work would be finishing plasterboarding and staining woodwork and painting ect. We can provide food and accommodation in exchange for this. Comfortable accommodation would be in one room in the steading. We would provide lifts to and from Dufftown where there is a bus service to Elgin. We could maybe find you a bike if you like cycling.
We are fairly easy going and good to get on with. We have 2 daughters who are home schooled and 2 Labradors. Ideally looking for someone for 2 weeks at a time but if we get on well it could be longer...a lot longer..as there is always plenty to do....

This is a hostel on the North side of the Hebridean island of Tiree off the west coast of Scotland, close to goregous beaches and a 2 minute walk from the watersports centre. It sleeps 14 in a mixture of dorms and family rooms. There is a cycle hire business within the hostel grounds.
For the 2017 season I would be very interested in hearing from someone, or maybe preferably a couple, who would be interested in spending the season on Tiree and playing a big part in the running of the hostel
. I would also be interested in hosting someone to work on and around the watermill. Some level of knowledge in the field of waterwheel engineering, renewable energy and/or stonemasonry would be required. In return I can offer accommodation and some help with food, although it would be predominately self-catering. If interested, please tell me about yourself, what you think you could contribute and what appeals to you about a stay on Tiree.

*********** Looking for carpentry, building and forestry helpers in Scotland for a week in 2016 ************

Hello,

We are looking for 1 or 2 physically strong people to help thin-out our 14 acre area of woodland in Scotland.

We’d also like to build a storage hut for the woods. The woods are about a 40 minute drive from our home but a hut could be built in stages back at our house in Aberfeldy and taken up ‘flat pack’ style so if you have experience in carpentry and building we’d love to hear from you. We have made a similar hut before so we can work with you and show you how it's done if it's not something you are familiar with.

We’d really appreciate it if you have a spare week to help with the heavy lifting and carrying - experience with using a chainsaw would be a great bonus too if you have it.

When we are not up at the forest, the tasks available at our house would be general maintenance outside: painting, putting up fences, log splitting and stacking, grass... more inside

Small friendly organic market garden in west of Scotland with herd of milking goats, about ten miles from Glasgow city centre. We set up the farm 25 years ago to provide young people with training in natural goat-keeping and all aspects of organic growing, such as permaculture. biodynamic methods and other innovative and time-saving methods.

We are looking for volunteers to join us for long or short stays (minimum three weeks) who want to know more about goats, growing food and survival methods such as saving seed. In return for about six hours work a day you will enjoy healthy organic food and stay in a heated caravan.

The work can sometimes be hard but we have a lot of fun!

Sadly these days, since we had some crazy folk here in the past, we have found that we have to ask people wanting to come and live with us for a reference, and to let us have the name,occupation,(farmer, other host, previous boss, lecturer or teacher) and telephone number of the referee. We have had ... more inside

We are a small holding on the Southern slopes of the Lammermuir hills looking out over the Tweed valley towards the Cheviot hills. This is a very peaceful rural location. We are renovating an old farm cottage using green oak framing and traditional stone mason skills. Anyone with these skills or enthusiasm to learn and good attention to detail will be most welcome. There will be additional opportunities to use or develop skills in timber frame building and welding. We keep a small flock of geese and assistance with these and general household tasks is also on the agenda. Simon is a forest manager and part-time saw miller so there will be opportunities to use or develop skills in these fields too. We stay in a mobile home with wood burner and compost loo. We also have a wood fuelled hot water boiler to provide baths/showers. We usually prepare and eat meals communally. Sleeping accommodation for visitors is in a separate touring caravan. We have no children but a dog who thinks s... more inside

My partner and I and two young children (2 and under) live in a village with the nearest town being 3 miles away (Biggar) where a bus can be taken. Edinburgh is about 25 miles and Glasgow just under 40 miles away.

We both have agricultural related jobs but we do not live on a farm. I have just returned back to work after being on maternity leave. I am looking for someone who can help for about 4 hours a day for their meals and a bed for the night. Work may involve gardening including weeding, planting, harvesting, lawn mowing, strimming, or painting fences. Indoor work may include help with general household chores. We have not lived here long so we are doing a few home improvements we might need a bit of help with, such as painting. You don't need to have experience with children but to like children would be good. Help might be needed to assist me with the children. If you enjoy cooking then your time could be used to help with cooking meals for the family. I myself e... more inside

Small scale (mostly seasonal) B&B in Highland coastal village requires help with all domestic duties, gardening, maintenance etc! Must like Jack Russells!!!! I am also a singer so a bit of 'roadie-ing' perhaps - plus I have a vintage clothing shop and on line business - so this placement would suit someone who likes variety, is creative and happy to just get stuck in with whatever needs to be done.
