I am a professional photographer living in a (single-storey) cottage in the early 19th century conservation village of Charlestown built for lime workers by the Earl of Elgin on the banks of the River Forth. It is a friendly but quiet place, as is my home. (If you are a party animal, this is not the HelpX for you!) NON SMOKERS ONLY, please.

Jobs for an active, easy-going multi-tasker would include:
• sanding and painting interior and exterior
window frames
• dog walking
• joinery
• gardening - I would prefer someone with interest and experience in gardening, plants and vegetables. Weeding and general garden maintenance is always required.

Painting (and sanding down) is an important task: the inside and outside of the conservatory and exterior of a couple of sheds and fencing.

In addition, my HelpXers need to be happy to help with cooking and cleaning and to do general maintenance gardening: branch-lopping, pond clearing etc. I have a few raised beds for vegetabl... more inside

Myself and my partner,Ali have just taken over the running of a caravan site on the Black Isle 5 miles from Inverness. Ali works full time in Findhorn building eco houses. I look after the caravan park, run some self catered accommodation, work on the family farm and look after our one and a half year old daughter, Anoushka.
Child care is number one. There are change overs in the self catered accommodation and maintenance work. Weeding and gardening. Help with the caravan site. Helping in the organic farm, work is very dependant on the time of year. Basically there is all sorts of things but it just depends on people's strengths and interests.
I hope people will enjoy being thrown in to a busy family and being part of it. You will meet other young people. There are plenty of experiences depending on your interest including horse riding, kyaking, walking, socialising and visiting our estate near Ullapool on the west coast.
Accommodation depends what is available but either a room... more inside

We are a small family run smallholding where we keep 450 chickens which produce great free range eggs. During this spring and summer, we are looking for help with mainly outside work around the smallholding such as feeding the chickens and collecting and packing eggs, grass cutting, gardening, carpentry and chicken hut maintenance. From time to time we need help in our shop were we sell our own products and others that are locally produced. There's always a lot going on here and we are developing our business all of the time.
There is always a lot of cooking to be done for ourselves and helpers so if you like doing this, that is great.

Accommodation is in a separate building which can sleep a maximum of 4 people - this has its own shower and toilet. We are a very friendly household and will treat you as one of the family. We try to make our helpers stay as pleasant as we can and try our best to provide the food you would like as we are very keen on tasty healthy food.

We're a couple who gave up the rat race and set up our smallholding from scratch seven years ago, recently completed our new build house. We have pigs, sheep, ducks, chickens, turkeys (until Christmas), three dogs (in the house) and a old cat who has recently moved in to the house! Gillian is 45 and used to work in retail management, David is a very, very young 72, retired and was a qualified architect who then set up several successful businesses. Of our three dogs one is a bit annoying and looks for a lot of attention from you, but she eventually leaves you alone! We both have private pilots licences and have a huge collection of books for you to read. We live in a lovely rural setting Non-smokers only please!

We're looking for volunteers to take responsibility for feeding, watering and mucking out/ bedding our animals (pigs, sheep, chickens and ducks) which takes around 2 hours (split between morning and evening) plus 2-3 hours working on other projects (gardening/ veg plot, f... more inside
