We are building an eco retreat on the Isle of Jura off the west coast of Scotland. 1 cottage, 3 huts, 1 retreat space.
We are a family of 4 looking for help with lots of different things to help us launch and also help run our holiday accommodation business on neighbouring island of Islay (2 houses www.portbahnislay.co.uk).

Looking for help Feb - October 2022 (flexible)
We're looking for volunteer (wwoofers / workaway) to help us set up and run our retreat and for paid help with keeping our holiday lets going.
Landscaping (stone walling, fencing, ditching)
Gardening (organic, polytunnel, veg)
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
There is always an influx of younger people in the summer and quite a laugh for seasonal staff and we do have wifi for when there's no mobile signal, (I get that that might not be a selling point to the young!!!!!)
More hours can be found if you wanted to earn more in other jobs / locations around the island. Unemployment is not a thing on the islands!!!
We can offer volunteers board and lodging in return for 20hrs a week work. We can offer a mix of paid / unpaid work. We can take someone on for the summer season to help run things once the site is set up. We are flexible and just want to find the right people to fit in with us and Jura. 1 to 2 month stays ideal. With someone for the summer season June - September ideal for the changeovers.
We can offer help with exploring Jura, the uninhabited, wild west coast, getting out on the water, bothy stays and any amount of information as to how to climb the paps or where to go wild swimming.
