We are based in a beautiful location, amongst croftland, on the east coast of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides about 10 miles from Stornoway.

We are a small family with just under an acre of land which we hope to develop for greater organic food production and productive woodland. We are hoping to install a poly tunnel and have a small summerhouse with water and electricity that we are keen to renovate too. There’s plenty to do in the house and are are flexible depending on skills and preferences of potential volunteer (s).

We would like a female or couple (would possibly also consider young family) for a mix of duties depending on preferences and skills to include gardening (vegetables, ground clearance, tree felling), household and childcare. Woodwork or other trade skills would also be very handy! Medium to long term stays preferred.

You will have lots of opportunity to enjoy everything the Hebrides can offer including the amazing landscape, wildlife (eagles, whales & dolphins) surfing, biking, learning Gaelic and the beautiful beaches.

We can provide a large double room in a large house with WiFi etc. Volunteers will have their own large fridge/ freezer and share kitchen.

The house is in a village but isolated in the sense that there are no shops or facilities nearby, however we are 5 minutes walk to the beach with seals, and surfing, kayaking and fishing opportunities are also within walking distance. Buses run to Stornoway around every hour.
