The first of the year's deliciously Tasty and Wild Treasure Hunts at Kinloch will appeal to foodies – and their families – looking for something a little bit different this Easter. On the shore of tranquil Loch Na Dal, surrounded by native and abundant forest, the hunting lodge's grounds are perfectly positioned to provide bountiful foraging.
On Easter Sunday, foraging aficionado, Mitch Partridge, will demonstrate what can be unearthed, sharing his local knowledge and 'craic'. The crop depends on the season but with every step there are mouth-watering morsels to be uncovered; edible mushrooms, wild garlic and sorrel in the forest, and along the shoreline, delicious seaweeds, mussels, samphire and the unappetising sounding, but totally scrumptious, scurvy grass.
Against a backdrop guaranteed to be breath-taking, adults and kids will have a delightful morning, sustained by freshly picked nibbles and refreshing brews, like Bog Myrtle Tea, made on an open fire, with kids collecting firewood and finding chocolate treats along the route.
On returning to the hotel, grown-up participants will enjoy a seasonal foraged cocktail (or mocktail) and a three-course lunch which will combine some of the morning's wild finds with Marcello Tully's classic cooking.
