My girlfriend and I live in a village called Plockton which is by the sea in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland. We have a big house and garden which is in need of a bit of looking after. As we are really busy with work at the moment we don't have time to do it all ourselves so we need some help! The jobs would be some painting and a bit of gardening.

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.
Typical jobs are clearing brush and coppicing for land management, sheep husbandry and clipping, renovations of a cottage... more inside

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.

We are vegetarian and don't smoke, people are most welcome when they are similar to us. We were taught at home all our lives, we are now 25 and 26. Anyone who comes to stay will find a friendly relaxed atmo... more inside

Comfortable,self-contained, warm fully furnished accommodation available end of October, in exchange for housekeeping, cooking, and gardening/general maintenance of country cottage within Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. I am a widowed, quite severely disabled pensioner, following a stroke eight years ago, with an active dog and three cats, requiring 'granny minding', and support. I am easygoing, but do like a clean, tidy house and good, simple food.

Balquhidder is a beautiful rural area that has a friendly, disperse community. I like to think of my helpers as extended family living in their own 'house'. This placement could best suit a couple [the accommodation has only a double bed!]. If you are able to come and stay for several months, I would be delighted. This placement is really what you make of it - the work isn't difficult, but it is routine, with generally afternoons and evenings free. There is reasonable WIFI in the main house, with a promise of superfast fib... more inside
