Discover wild and local delicacies on a remote shoreline adventure in the West Highlands, with Leon and Alison from Wildwood Bushcraft.

Learn how to identify, gather and prepare wild food at a peaceful, remote coastal location 35 miles west of Fort William.

If conditions allow, paddle by open canoe on a short journey to explore the coastline and lift creels – perhaps there will be crabs or even a lobster!

Try hand-reel fishing from the rocky shore and see what can be caught – likely species are mackerel or pollock depending on the season.

Foraged foods found, depending on tide, season and other conditions, also include:- shellfish, seaweed, wild garlic, sorrel, berries, and mushrooms.

Light a fire with sparks and natural tinder. Cook on the campfire, learning how to follow the principles of ‘leave no trace’, treading lightly on this pristine landscape.

Prepare an outdoor spread together, using the foraged ingredients, complemented by local and seasonal delicacies such as Glenuig smoked salmon, Mallaig sourdough, local eggs, honey, cheese, relish, salad leaves and home baking. Liquid refreshments in the form of wild teas, cordials, and a nip of local whisky of course…!

Spend a day out in nature to explore and learn about this beautiful wild coast, and sample its flavours. This is a gentle journey on foot and by open canoe, with the level of adventure tailored to the group. Enjoy being out in the wilds all day with an experienced guide and ecologist.

Mini-expedition for small groups of 2-6 people.

Suggested timings: 10am – 4pm, can be tailored to suit the group and the tides.

£135 per person including food.
