    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The volunteers will be considered part of the family. During the day they will be able to learn about both traditional and some of the more advanced technologies we apply on the farm. They will learn about the different beef cattle breeds, such as limosin as well as native Scottish breeds such as the highland cow.
    In exchange for the volunteers help we will provide all meals. These will include traditional Scottish fayre such as haggis, black pudding, meat from our own animals and fruit and vegetables grown locally.
    We have a local hotel which we often visit fr meals during free times, it's a traditional Scottish hotel and there will certainly be opportunities to visit.
