Rural community of around 12 permanent members managing about 8 of our 35 hectares. Help needed with gardens, forestry, from planting to on-site timber production, animals, construction and general help around the farm including some cooking, preserving and other kitchen and domestic tasks. We usually ask for around six hours a day, five days a week, however this is flexible. Some tasks are quite physically demanding. We tend to work shorter hours at these. Lighter tasks are always available if you feel it is too much for you.

We prefer that you plan on staying with us a full two weeks if you have no relevant experience. This is to ensure that both us and you gain from your stay. Shorter stays are fine if you have relevant previous experience.
All our work on the land is organic, permaculture used as our basic method.
We also have workshops on site where we do our own maintenance and fabrication.

We are based in the beautiful highlands of Scotland. Although it is a rural setting we are close to Inverness and Aviemore where there are many activities available; especially outdoor. Glenan Lodge is a 7 bedroom guesthouse in a traditional victorian house with stunning scenery around. The village itself has a wonderful community and plenty walks so you can get the full experience of the highlands.
We would be looking for extra help with serving meals to our guests and cleaning rooms. In exchange you would have your own room and share our family communal areas, you would also be part of the family so if you wish could join us on outings - whatever you would be comfortable to do.
Hope to hear from you as we would love to give people from other cultures a taste of Scotland.

Communally run 80-acre organic farm. We eat, work & make decisions together whilst sharing a large Welsh stone farmhouse and its outbuildings. We aim to live as lightly as we can with deep consideration and respect for our planet, each other and ourselves. All our power is produced by sun, wind, and water; we grow as much of our food as we can, we use our tractor for carting and haymaking, goats for milk and cheese and aspire to live life slowly enough to enjoy the rich pleasures of this glorious land.

Unfortunately, we can't accept volunteers flying just to spend time with us as the environmental cost of flying far out-weighs the benefit of your visit. Please see our website and Facebook page for more info.

During our volunteer weeks, we offer meals and accommodation for about 5.5 hours of helping a day Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, and about 3.5 hours work on a Wednesday morning. At the weekend, and on Wednesday afternoon, your time is your own, to explore the surro... more inside

"As a volunteer at Chisholme House you are appreciated for who you are, not only for what you do."

This is a place of great beauty set in the heart of the Scottish Borders. It is primarily a school and retreat centre. The 187 acre estate offers an ideal space in which to retreat, engage in study and experience the reviving effect of being close to nature.


We accept help throughout the year but at the moment we are particularly looking for help over the summer. Come and join volunteers from all over the world for a week or two of satisfying work in Chisholme's walled garden and estate - and help too in preparing the wonderful meals for which we are famous. You can come for one of our special volunteer weeks when a programme of activities complements work outside - or at any other time. Please see the website for more details http://www.chisholme.org/whats-on/upcoming-courses.html
