Arran is an island rich in history and wildlife. On this Forest Walk we will delve into the wild food of Arran’s forests, discovering the ancient flavours and learning how to confidently identify the plants we encounter. We will walk the spectacular Eas Mor Waterfall path discussing the plants that we discover. This is an easy gravel path with a steep incline to start.
The Wild Food Feast will involve freshly cooking up what we have gathered along the way with some additional foraged and homemade sides. The specific food will depend on what is most abundant and delicious at the time. We will enjoy eating and cooking together outside. Some of the food will be prepared ahead of time, so if you have any dietary requirements or preferences please let me know in the event registration form at the checkout or email me details on email@example.com
The walk is open to all age groups. Children under 16 are free of charge but will need to be accompanied by an adult. The pace and terrain of this walk will be moderate as we need to climb a steep hill at the start of the walk (the views are well worth it). Dogs are very welcome at all Wild Food Arran walks, providing they are happy to be around groups of excited people. If you have any special requirements we encourage you to get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org
Things you will need to bring:
- A bag or basket for your treasures along the way.
- Waterproof clothes, a decent coat at least.
- Wellies or other comfy waterproof shoes.
- Notepad or phone to take notes and pictures.
- A bottle of water/drink each for lunch.
All Wild Food Arran foraging walks will go ahead in wet weather. Only storms or dangerous winds will lead to cancellations. I recommend coming prepared for rain. Please read through the Terms and Conditions and Cancellation Policy for more info.
Looking forward to seeing you there.
