Foraging walks with RSPB and The Botanist


RSPB Loch Gruinart, Isle of Islay, PA44 7PR, United Kingdom

The Botanist and RSPB Scotland have a shared mission on Islay, to connect people with the natural environment around them. Responsible foraging is at the heart of how The Botanist is made at Bruichladdich Distillery and RSPB Scotland recognises this as a tasty and inspirational way to connect visitors with nature and conservation.

RSPB Loch Gruinart is therefore pleased to announce two special events in 2017 to pioneer this partnership.

On the afternoons of 27th July and 17th August, Mark Williams, Scotland’s only professional foraging tutor, will conduct two guided foraging walks along the Woodland Trail  starting from the RSPB Loch Gruinart Visitor Centre.

The walks, lasting 2 – 2.5 hours, commence at 4.00pm and will focus on identifying particular plants, discussing their uses and flavours (in The Botanist and more) and emphasise the importance of sustainable foraging practice.

The cost of the walk is £10.00 per person.

All proceeds to RSPB funds.
