Wildlife and foraging holiday in the Highlands

This interesting wildlife holiday in the Highlands is centred on the flora and fauna of Wester-Ross and Sutherland and learning about wild foods. The week includes a trip to the famous Handa Island reserve where you will have the chance to see many nesting birds, including Guillemots, Razorbills, Puffins, Fulmars, Arctic and Great Skuas. Birds of prey such as Golden Eagles, Sea Eagles and Peregrine Falcons are also common. The trip is also focused on identifying wild plants and leanring about wild foragable food.

We use naturally produced, local meat and vegetables some from the farm you will be staying on. Our fish and seafood comes straight from the ocean. We make all our breads, cakes, jams and pickles and we harvest wild foods according to the season. Come home to a venison casserole with wild garlic or a nettle and goats cheese tart, followed by home-made puddings such as a raspberry or apple tart or gorse flower and honey ice cream with rose hip syrup.
