Outdoor Conservation Volunteering

Conservation Volunteers (CVs) are a diverse group of people who, on a regular basis, carry out practical conservation work for the National Trust for Scotland.

Becoming a CV gives you the opportunity to:

  • Learn new skills such as drystane dyking, footpath construction and woodland management;
  • Work in beautiful gardens and stunning countryside throughout Scotland;
  • Meet new people, get some fresh air and exercise, and become actively involved in conservation and the Trust;
  • Attend training courses and lectures to enhance your understanding of countryside skills and conservation issues.

There are currently five CV groups in operation.


If you're 18 or over, reasonably fit and would like to make a difference by taking some outdoor action, please complete a Conservation Volunteer Registration Form. A one-off registration fee of £25 is payable, unless you are already a member of the National Trust for Scotland.
