We are a small family run croft on the banks of Loch Shin in Sutherland. Shinness is a small traditional crofting community approximately 4 miles outside of Lairg. We set up Highland Croft Produce at a time when things were difficult for crofters and farmers alike with Foot and Mouth and low lamb prices. All our produce is naturally reared to the highest standard and we believe that quality is not to be compromised.
We also have other animals on the Croft including 2 horses.
We would like help with general croft duties and in addition experienced horse riders to help with schooling and exercising the horses.
If you would like to help us, we have a varied list of chores including lambing, haymaking, shearing other chores include looking after other animals on the croft including hens, goats, dogs and ferrets.
As we are a small croft chores tend to be light leaving plenty of time to explore our beautiful scenery. If you would a chance to enjoy some time working on a croft and wor... more inside

Two cottages under renovation on the West Coast of Scotland. We will eventually let the cottages, have some camping and some cabins to let, but from January 2014 we need general help to complete eco-building works such as stud walling and lime plastering, insulation, etc. We can provide a warm room, breakfast and evening meals, conversation and an insight into this amazing Scottish landscape in exchange for 1-2 months building work, landscaping and gardening preparation. References or recommendations would ideally be required.
Pete works some of the week away in Fort William where he leads a tourism research programme specialising in eco- and adventure tourism. Jo works part-time for the School of Adventure Studies, and full-time as house restorer. The village of Arisaig has live music in the pub most weeks.

We are a small Hotel situated in the quiet village of Arisaig, on the west coast of Scotland. Our accommodation offers sea views which overlook the bay and out towards the Small Isles of Eigg and Rum. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty with beautiful beaches, sparkling Lochs and rugged hills. We are looking for keen people to help us renovate the tired interior of the hotel and can offer free accommodation plus a food allowance. You would need to have experience in general D.I.Y and decorating, be willing to work up to five hours per day with one/two full days off a week.

My partner and I have our own businesses. Mine is a cleaning business and my partner's is property maintenance. There will be work available between the two. Either helping Andy with labouring etc or helping me with the cleaning of holiday cottages, private homes and ironing.
We live in a large bungalow in a very beautiful village called Killin. We live here with our 3 dogs, Ty and Alfie (German Shepherds) and Milly (a terrier) and our two cats Poppy and Paddy. Friday, Saturday and Monday are my busiest days with the cottages (10am to 4pm) times and days are all very flexible though.
There would also be dog walking and gardening every so often to do.
A double bedroom is available so would suit either one single person or a couple travelling together. There is a bathroom right next door to the bedroom with a bath and a shower.
There is WiFi available in the house.

There would not be any money for the work done but you would get accommodation and meals in return.

I live in an old croft cottage on part of a croft in the Scottish Highlands. It is a very scenic and photogenic area with lots of hillwalking and nature trails. I am close to the seashore and a few kilometers from the famous Eilean Donan Castle (see photo), the 5 Sisters of Kintail, the Cuillins of Skye and Ben Killilan, 'where eagles fly'!
The house and grounds require a lot of work - including clearing hill ground of rock and scrub - so at present the placement might suit those prepared for farm-work or building rather than housework. Eventually, I hope to keep hens and grow vegetables organically. Also to do Bed and Breakfast. But that is in the future.
Cutting firewood, clearing and digging terraces, collecting stone for windbreak walls and putting up outbuildings is the main work now. Over the summer I need to urgently progress work in the garden and putting up sheds. Manual, joinery, stone working, plumbing skills and for leisure activity a liking for hill-walking would be ... more inside

I live in a conservation area close to the centre of Edinburgh, but with a reasonably green and peaceful outlook with views to Arthur's Seat and near Marchmont. Recently both house and garden maintenance have got somewhat beyond me and Id really appreciate some help in getting things back on track and also some cheerful company.

Itd be great to have someone to stay who had decent carpentry, plumbing and other home maintenance skills to exchange time working together on tasks for accommodation (but not food). Gardening skills are lower priority at the moment as apart from anything this year has been too wet to do anything sensible. The garden is organic, but currently only yields rosemary, mint, gooseberries and chives! Assuming permission from the council one significant task might be felling a large old cherry tree to allow more light into the garden and hence more vegetable growing.

Any helper would need to be able to prepare their own food, although it would also be... more inside
