Foraging walks with the RSPB, Islay – Part 3


Gruinart, Bridgend PA44 7PP, UK

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 three more foraging walks to pioneer this partnership in 2018.

If you happen to be on Islay on the 2nd, 16th or 23rd of August our in-house forager James Donaldson will be leading a guided foraging walk 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.
