How To Volunteer

If you wish to volunteer whether it be for one day or more and be part of this fantastic new event in the area, please contact us here.

If you are part of a charitable organisation that is able to provide a number of volunteers, Visit Inverness Loch Ness will in return make a donation to the charity in appreciation of your assistance.

All volunteers will receive event merchandise including a tote bag, beanie hat, and a snood.


Volunteers Team Leaders

In addition to volunteers, we require 8 ‘Team leaders’ to take overall responsibility for event requirements and volunteers over sections of the events route around the loch. Ideally, those chosen will have experience of this work but it is not a necessary requirement. In return, the Team Leaders will be financially rewarded and receive additional event merchandise.
