Bamff Ecotourism

We live in a beautiful place (in an old castle) and we have an interesting ecological restoration project with the largest beaver wetlands in the UK. People have had a good time volunteering here in the past. We are on the edge of the Scottish Highlands with many beautiful walks nearby including a walking trail through our land.

As a family we enjoy meeting people from all over the world. We are friendly and outgoing and like to laugh. We have four grown up children and five grandchildren so we are used to having young people around us and usually get on well with young travellers. See www.bamff.co.uk for more details.

Bamff is a truly uniqueexperience like few others. Paul and Loiuse are welcoming hosts who live in a beautiful part of the world. The other volunteers were amazing and supported each other as it can (at times) feel a bit isolated if you're haven't spent much time living outside of cities. The work was fair and each day presented new experiences and challenges. Bamff has tonnes of wonderful places to explore and animals to meet. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to spend some time being in nature.

I have no words to describe how amazing this experience has been. For sure, the best one I could have ever imagined.
Before going I was a little afraid of the Sccotish accent but the lovely couple of hosts, Louis & Paul, have a gentil accent which I could understand almost everything, really proud about that.
To say that the meals were delicious is not enough, they were awsome.
The hours of work depend most of the changeovers that are or not in the day, so is not always the same, but they were not never more than expected.
I really hope to go back one day, I found a second family there :)

Definitely a fantastic experience!! The place, the hosts,...everything is perfect! It's a secluded place where you can connect with nature. It's 10 minutes by car from a small town but you can walk or bike along the routes that exist. If you like nature and places with magic and charm... this is the place!
The tasks are easy and the environment is very good. They respect working hours.
They helped me with the language and made communication easy and comfortable.
Paul, Louise and Sophie are wonderful people, friendly and they welcome me very well. They cook very well too! It's amazing!
