The Erraid Community is a small island off the Isle of Mull (Inner Hebrides) and part of the Findhorn Foundation Community. As a spiritual land-based community we live and work together as custodians of the island and cottages that were built for the northern lighthouse board in the 1860s.

Our life is very practical whilst living with spiritual principles.
Our main role here as custodians of the island is to maintain the cottages and outbuildings. This involves: painting, carpentry, plumbing, electrical, maintaining the many sash windows, metal work, fencing and much more. Our second priority is keeping our aim of trying to live off the land as much as we can, we have organic gardens, two poly-tunnels, many chickens and will hopefully soon have our own dairy cow.

We are currently looking for work exchange to fill one of the following four roles:

*At present we are undertaking a lot of outdoor work including, pruning apple trees, planting trees, gathering and spreading s... more inside

Remote island in Orkney group rearing North Ronaldsay Rare breed sheep -the sheep roam the island and are pretty self-sufficient, eating seaweed for preference. We clip them with hand shears and manage them without dogs. Our flock is the second largest of this breed and we use their fleeces in every permutation in order to make them commercially viable - we are looking for help in every area of sheep management and maintenance of fences and buildings as well as with the production of our sheepskins, yarn and felted and woven goods. The island has many archaeological sites, seabird colonies, caves and good fishing. Our family live on the island alone but we have many visitors from local birdwatchers to pipe bands, and fishermen to poets.

Hi Helpers, we run a high quality dinner, bed & breakfast business from our home, Melfort House, in the Scottish Highlands.
