A "Natural" Building Project in the Scottish Highlands.

Hi HelpXers,

We live in a beautiful wooded glen (valley) near a village called Spinningdale about 50 miles (80 km.) north of Inverness in the northern Scottish Highlands, where we have a 6 acre (2.4 hectare) former croft (a "croft" is a traditional small Highland farmstead).

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 based around a traditional post and beam timber frame with "breathing" external walls clad with untreated larch and a living green roof. The building is ins... more inside

This is a small farm on the sea loch of Loch Broom, next to the fishing village of Ullapool which is 6 miles further along the coast.

We have sheep and cattle (including highland cattle) plus there are areas of wildlife management. On the farm there are two rivers which flow into the broom estuary, which support salmon,sea trout, otters and sea birds.

The farmhouse is located at the head of Loch Broom. We are in the process of developing the farm towards organic certification and doing work to live up to Scottish Agricultural Department biodiversity requirements.

The farm is organised by Jane and worked by our one day a week farmer Brian, Johnny and helpers.

We garden vegetables in a large poly tunnel and aim to eat and provide organic and sustainable food from the farm and local area.

Typical work hours are about four or five hours a day.

Hi, we are brother and sister Bethany and Jacob. We run a dog boarding kennels and equestrian stunt team in the Borders of Scotland. We set up our business in 2008 after 9 years living in France and doing our horse entertainment/circus/re enactment type shows. While we were living in France our parents were signed up to HelpX and had many interesting people staying with us.

The dog boarding kennels started because our grandparents have a kennels. We do our horse shows all over the UK and Europe mainly in the summer months with our 14 horses, the shows include lots of different skills including jousting, combat,fire breathing, circus tricks, dressage, stunt riding, dog training, live music and many more! Our shows are set to music and include costumes and props made by us.
