National Trust for Scotland volunteers are preparing for a busy schedule as they ready the charity’s properties for the summer season.

Repairing steps at Barry Mill, gardening at Kellie Castle and cutting back vegetation at the House of Dun are all on the agenda National Trust for Scotland’s (NTS) Tayside Conservation Volunteer Group.

The group has dozens of members who regularly donate their time and talent to the conservation charity, going out on conservation projects at National Trust for Scotland (NTS) properties across Perthshire, Angus and beyond.

Julie Bond, conservation volunteer co-ordinator, said: “Our conservation volunteers make a massive contribution to the care of the Trust’s 200,000 acres of countryside, historic estates and beautiful gardens. Volunteering with the Trust is a great opportunity to get out, explore your outdoors and play a key part in caring for our countryside too. We also know that volunteering makes you happy – what better reason to get involved?”

Travel, accommodation and meals are all organised and new members are always welcome. Further information can be found at www.nts.org.uk/Volunteering/Outdoor/
