Are you interested in volunteering? The Isle of Eigg Heritage Trust offers a variety of different volunteering opportunities from April to August.
We invite you to spend time working with the community to improve the island’s natural environment, complete essential conservation tasks, monitoring and practical projects. You can expect to carry out tasks like beach cleans, marine litter monitoring, litter picking, bramble & bracken management, herb garden weeding, natural regeneration management, and helping with community events and ceilidhs.
We are looking for enthusiastic caring folk that work well as part of a team and at times will be without supervision so it is essential that you are self motivated and can work independently. If you can bring a specific skill to the island then please let us know in your application form.
A very small nominal fee of £15/wk is asked for to cover household running costs only. If requested, references can be written for you after your period volunteering with us. Volunteers make an enormous contribution to the island for which residents are very grateful.
Accommodation is provided by the Isle of Eigg Heritage Trust in Tigh Corraraigh a semi detached house situated in Cleadale on the northwest side of the island, approx 4 miles from the pier. For an application form, further information or queries please contact volunteer [at] isleofeigg [dot] net or for more information on the island look at the Isle of Eigg website.
