Volunteer exchange in Scotland โ€“ I’m Sam. I live in a stupidly beautiful rainforest on the sea. I live in a wonderful studio I build myself 30 years ago and have recently renovated it. It’s busy – trees to plant, logs to collect, DIY always lurking in the background, paths to maintain, beaches to clean, veg to grow, hens, cats… I have two nice caravans which have all you need. One for a couple and another for a single. I provide food, and bake bread almost daily – we eat lunch together and cook independently at night.

Diet – nutrition information ๐Ÿฅ—๐Ÿฅค

I can cater for most diets. Mostly vegetarian though and I do expect folk to cook their own supper. Don’t like volunteers buying ready meals – but no one does!!

Fees transparency ๐Ÿ†“๐Ÿ”

No charges.

VISA – could you provide Visa support/info/invitation letters? ๐Ÿ›‚

Maybe. We can help with an invitation letter if the candidate has good qualifications. ๐Ÿ’โ€โ™€๏ธ
