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.
To mark the centenary of women receiving the right to vote, ATLAS Arts will hold a series of events in 2018.
In 1918, the right to vote came as a result of intense campaigning. Although women still had to be over thirty and meet minimum property qualifications, the the Representation of the People Act, 1918, fundamentally marked a shift in the voter demographic (8 million women could now vote) and paved the way for further changes towards voting equality.
Some of the ATLAS Arts events will focus on addressing the gender imbalance on Wikipedia by hosting ‘edit-a-thons’, with the specific aim to create articles for women of Skye who have been overlooked, as well as improving existing content for those who already feature.
In working with Skye and Lochalsh Archive Centre, ATLAS Arts will be able to explore first-hand accounts of women such as Ann Mackinnon from Waternish, who was awarded the Croix de Guerre (France’s highest military award) for bravery in continuing to care for the sick under enemy fire. We will also consider stories of women who are alive today and welcome your ideas as to who should be included.
