 Estancia mínima:  Al menos 2 semanas



  • Descripción


    Charitable society protecting a historic tower in Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland. We meet and great visitors from around the world. We hold events such as music, reenactment and other charity fundraising as well as raising funds to help restore the tower. The society is run by voluteers. There are lots of opportunities to do different types of work from general building maintenance, gardening or giving a tour of the castle and grounds. All in a pleasant and relaxed environment, here in bonnie Galloway. Located within a 15 minute walk to the local fishing village of Garlieston, with its beautiful sandy beach, harbour and bay, there's plenty to do on your not working. Fishing, swimming, canoeing and sailing are all on the doorstep. This really is an opportunity to work, rest and play.

    Your time spent here will be very varied. A typical day could be to open the site ready for visitors. Check everywhere is clear, tidy and safe for other volunteers and the general public. Tasks will be set so there's something to be working at but will also allow for our volunteers to be ready to give a tour and show visitors around. We make sure that there's always at least two volunteers on site, this offers support and allows for tasks to continue, even when we have got visitors. It's great to hear folks stories about where they have travelled from and what can be gained from their visit. There will be opportunities to help with some of the restoration work and learn traditional skills, from lime mortar pointing to stone work, just the way it was done originally. At the end of your shift, clear up and enjoy relaxing around the tower and grounds or head out for one of the many local beauty spots.

    Providing tours to visitors of the 16th century castle and the 12th century motte. General maintenance, from lime mortar pointing to cleaning, painting, gardening and demonstrating how to bake bread in the medieval oven. Tending to the fruit trees and herb garden. We will be introducing a bee project in 2023 and there will be lots to learn about helping provide a good environment for them and what we can do with their produce. Helping run events, from music to medieval reenactment, there's lots of scope to help and learn.
