Volunteer in a hostel in Scotland – requirements & tasks

Whether you’re passing through Oban on the way to the Islands, or staying for a couple of days and exploring historic and beautiful Argyll, Oban Backpackers is the best backpacker accommodation in town!

Translated from its Gaelic tongue to mean ‘small bay’, Oban is an idyllic horseshoe bay sheltered from the Atlantic by the isle of Kerrera. Also known as the ‘Gateway to the Isles’, this is the largest port in North West Scotland and boasts spectacular views across to the Hebridean islands.

You will help us for about 30 hours a week with the day to day tasks associated with running a busy hostel.

Volunteer in a hostel in Scotland – what we offer

For your work, we will provide you with accommodation and breakfast. You’ll also enjoy amazing views. In particular, the view at dusk from McCaig’s Tower provides a sunset you are unlikely to forget. Like any small port, there is a lot going on in Oban; the bustle of fishing boats, ferries, yachts and sea birds make the waterfront a lovely place to be.
