Scottish Wild Food Festival

Saturday 14th September 10am-6pm, Cardross Estate

Set in the spectacular surroundings of Cardross Estate, Port of Menteith, on 14th September, Scotland’s first wild food festival will provide a feast of wild food and the opportunity to try hands-on foraging workshops, wild walks, plant folklore and long table dinners. Whether you are a foraging novice or have been enjoying nature’s wild harvest for many years, there will be something to delight you.

The festival encourages people of all ages to step outdoors and discover local wild food. With fungi forages and tastings; artisan bread making and wilderness crafts; wild food stalls; and even the chance to learn fire lighting skills, this festival will appeal to nature lovers across Scotland.

The festival is part of a cross cultural project with LEADER areas in Finland, Latvia, Lithuania and Scotland, each country running wild food festivals and sharing their experiences.
