Angus, Glamis Castle Summer Foraging Courses
AVAILABILITY & BOOKING
ABOUT THE COURSE
We’re excited to return to this stunning 14th Century castle. Glamis Castle is full of interesting history, most notably being the childhood home of the Queen Mother, birthplace of Princess Margaret and the setting in Macbeth.
Being just outside Forfar this beautiful new venue is within easy reach of Blairgowrie and Rattray, Brechin, Montrose, Dundee, Kirriemuir and even Perth.
We will meet in the car park, the course starts with a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes, where they relate to foragers.
Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the Castle grounds, teaching you how to identify the different edible and poisonous plants, flowers, fruits and mushrooms that we find.
We will stop along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely wild food soup or elderflower champagne.
After the walk we will end the day with a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found. This will include some treats made from our recent finds and a wild salad that we will pick on the day.
After the course we will email you a list of everything we talk about on the day; to help you remember what you have learnt.
