I live in the beautiful Balmacara with my husband, dog, parrot and chickens. Surrounded by mountains and sea lochs, on the north west coast of Scotland, if you like music and the great outdoors its a perfect place to visit. We are a young-ish couple and love to meet new and interesting people.
Help with Eco project
* We are looking for a last minute volunteer who cake help us to dig over the polytunnel from the 13th June for a week. We are trying to begin a mixed technique garden with aspects of permaculture, forest gardening and mixed vegetable growing. We are in the early days and so there is a lot of landscape work at the moment. Digging galore, building paths and planting seeds :)
you would be living with us in our home. We have a room that is set up for you although we may have to retrieve things like paper, dog food etc. from it from time to time. The room can be set up for one or two people if you wanted to come with a friend or partner though singles also more than welcome. :)
We live three miles from the nearest train station which is Kyle of Lochalsh. There are also buses to Glasgow, Edinburgh and Fort William although they are relatively infrequent. I have a bicycle which you could also borrow if you wanted to explore by bike. In return for five days work you would receive free accommodation and three homecooked meals a day, weekends and evenings are then for you to do as you wish that includes coming along to anything we have planned. Friendly, open--minded hard workers absolutely welcome.
