On the shore of tranquil Loch Na Dal and surrounded by native and abundant forest, Kinloch is perfectly positioned to provide bountiful foraging on the Isle of Skye and the Lodge’s own guide will show guests what can be unearthed.
Kinloch's own guide, Mitchell Partridge, shares his local knowledge and ‘craic’; the crop depends on the season but with every step there’s a tasty treat to be uncovered. Find 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, it’s a gentle morning where foragers are sustained by freshly picked nibbles and refreshing brews, like Bog Myrtle Tea, made on an open fire.
On returning to the hotel, guests will enjoy a specially-created foraged cocktail (or mocktail) and if you are part of one of our Foraging Days a three-course lunch, which will combine some of the wild finds with Marcello Tully’s classic cooking, is also included.
