The Holy Isle will stay closed while the Scottish Government's current tight restrictions remain in place but we are hoping to be able to invite new volunteers starting later in spring/early summer.

Full-time volunteering

A team of around 15 full time volunteers commit to work on the island for a full season (April to October), with additional volunteers coming for shorter periods during the busy summer months. The Centre closes from the end of October until our Christmas and New Year Retreats and January to March we hold a 10-week Winter Retreat. Staffing levels are lower during the quieter winter months.

Guest Volunteers

Throughout our season, we welcome short-term guest volunteers who offer 3 hours per day working in return for 25% reduction in  costs for board and lodging. This is often the best way to get to know Holy Isle because it allows you to make a connection with the Project and the volunteer staff while getting plenty of time and space for yourself.
