Kinloch's deliciously Tasty and Wild Treasure Hunt will appeal to foodies looking for something a little bit different this Spring Bank Holiday. 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 the Isle of Skye.
On Saturday May 26th, 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 mouthwatering 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 breathtaking, this will be a delightful morning, sustained by freshly picked nibbles and refreshing brews, like Bog Myrtle Tea.
On returning to the hotel, 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.
