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 I'd really appreciate some help in getting things back on track and also some cheerful company.

It'd 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 would also be very welcome as there is a lot that needs doing even although the garden is not large. The garden is organic, but currently mostly only yields rosemary, lavender, rocket, mint, gooseberries and chives!

Other random things that I would like to do and someone may have skills to help me with are repair and re-upholstery of old furniture and up-cycling/re-use of old materials and sustainable disposal of the same via channels like gumtre... more inside

We have had a cancellation and are looking for help from 18 Sep - 02 Oct.

Situated near Nairn (close to Inverness & Loch Ness) in a beautiful hidden glen, we have 57ha of improved grass, rough grazing, wetland & birch woods. There are 20 ewes, 60 hens and grazing cattle plus vegetable garden, polytunnel & orchard. Excellent wildlife habitat with ponds, flowers, birds & animals. Holiday homes provide main income. Following an agricultural degree and 21 years managing a dairy farm we moved towards self-sufficiency in 1996 on our own croft. Interests include djembe drumming, hill walking, eco building, anti GM campaigning and cooking meals from home grown produce.
Beginners welcome, enthusiasm and no smoking is all we ask - we will teach the rest, even english! Any time for long or short stay. We take only one volunteer helper at a time. Non-working, paying guests in holiday homes.

News update - Coming up to Christmas we have a mixture of indoor and outdoor tasks depending on your skills. Indoors there will be woodworking, painting a floor and windows, moving furniture about; outdoors there's preparing the veg beds for next season, cutting hedges, collecting leaves. We also had a huge fruit harvest so now we're making lots of things from apples - preserves, juice, cider, and crisps!

Here's the bigger picture - we have a long term project renovating and extending a lovely 400 year old house and garden about half an hour north of Edinburgh. We like to work with the character and detail of the original building, using traditional materials and techniques where possible, so - for example - we have done repairs to lath and plaster in lime, and made our own shutters and panelling to match the originals. Outdoors we’re trying to grow our own fruit and veg, and make a beautiful garden in time! We would love some help with small building and finishing works, and tr... more inside
