Wild food cookery weekend in Scotland
Exceeded my expectations by far! An amazing holiday for anyone with an interest in history, archaeology, food and agriculture. (more)Alexandra Young
The most memorable and exciting part of the holiday was drinking nettle beer as the sun went down on the Saturday night. We'd had a busy day digging, foraging and cooking, so seeing it all come together at the end of the day with a crackling fire and that beautiful view of the valley below was truly memorable.
