The Experience

We're a guest house in Kinlochleven on the West Highland way and surrounded by mountains and lochs (lakes). Volunteering consists of waitressing, housekeeping, laundry, reception, and kitchen help 4 days a week, for 4 hours. You'll have 3 full days off per week so we can enjoy the surroundings! Accommodation is in a shared apartment with myself and my girlfriend, plus possibly another volunteer :)

I had a lovely stay at the guest house in Kinlochleven. Lewis was a great host, very friendly and welcoming. The work was easy, waitressing, cleaning, check ins. I also met a few other Worldpackers from Israel, Finland and America. I would recommend this experience to anyone with a passion for the outdoors and seeking adventure. Thank you again for a wonderful start to my travels!

Tigh Na Cheo was the most rewarding volunteer experience I've ever had. Because Lewis and Michelle are such wonderful individuals, I enjoyed every activity I did there. Because we've shared discussions, lunches, and dinners, Lewis is the best boss I've ever had. In addition, each activity was well-explained, and the entire environment is quite pleasant. I value the time I spent there since I was able to complete my volunteer work and do other things such as working remotely and studying. In addition, I had the pleasure of meeting Lewis's family, which was a lovely experience. Thanks a lot! :)

I had a wonderful time at Tigh Na Cheo and would 100% recommend this stay to anyone wanting to immerse themselves in Scottish nature.

You'll have plenty of time to explore the area, do some hikes along the West Highland Way, swim in the nearby river and relax in the evenings. The work isn't strenuous and I found it really fun - having never worked as a waitress before, serving breakfast and chatting to all the guests was a big highlight for me.

Lewis is a great host - very laidback and friendly. He's also an amazing cook and has the best cookbook collection I've ever seen!
