Spend a week in the Scottish Highlands, growing trees, planting trees, monitoring wildlife and supporting other vital work which helps restore the Caledonian Forest.

Each week is led by two skilled and experienced guides. Up to ten volunteers can come on each week. You must be 18 or over to participate. There’s no upper age limit but the work can be physically demanding, so you will need a reasonable level of fitness. Volunteers are free to find a pace of work they are comfortable with.

We provide full accommodation including vegetarian or vegan food and transport to and from Inverness. Weeks start with an introductory walk and most days run from 9am to 5pm. Each task is explained and demonstrated before you begin and we provide all necessary tools and safety equipment. Wednesday is a day off – you may choose to do something with the group, explore the local area or spend time on your own. In the evenings you have time to relax, eat, read, play games or tell stories – whatever you feel moved to do!

There are four key elements which we believe contribute to the quality of our volunteers’ experience:

 

Helping the planet: Doing something positive and empowering to help the planet.

 

Contact with nature: Spending a week working amidst the forests, rivers and mountains of the Scottish Highlands, being inspired by the wilderness.

 

Sharing with others: Living, eating and working with like-minded people.

 

Education: Learning about forest restoration through practical work and direct observation.
