We need someone to stay here whilst we get away for a holiday. There are only a few daily jobs:
Two cats need fed.
5 hens need to be cared for.
The ewes and lambs in the fields need daily inspection.
We grow vegetables in a poly tunnel which will need watering.
You are not expected to deal with any emergencies, just get help from friends and family who live nearby. The rest of your time can be spent sight seeing in this area. There are often horse owners about looking after their horses. Also there is a bus service to Lanark past.

Before we leave we will ensure you are happy and competent to do these few tasks. We may also need some help with a variety of tasks on the farm whilst we are here.

The farm is also a livery yard. But no help should be needed with the horses. I (Faye) have my own horses so there could be an opportunity to ride horses.

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.

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 insulated throughout with hemp fibre and sheep`s wool... more inside

Free self catering accommodation on Isle of Skye in return for help in garden and croft.

18 June -14 July

Hello folks.

For the last two years I have been building a load bearing strawbale bothy, but between working fulltime and building the bothy my dog, garden and croft have been badly neglected. The strawbale bothy is nearly finished, but I don't want to leave my garden and croft to deteriorate any further.

I'm looking for folks who are comfortable working outdoors, getting muddy, maybe scratched by brambles and hopefully know a wee bit about horticulture to help rescue the garden and croft.

So here's the deal:

I will be moving out of my two bedroom traditional stone built croft house and into the bothy so that I can finish it in the evenings after work and at weekends.

This leaves my house available for helpexers. There are two double bedrooms so it would ideally suit couples or friends happy to share a bed! This will be a different experience from the las... more inside
