Kinlochmoidart Forgaing

While you soak up the local woodlands and beautiful shoreline of Loch Moidart, you might come across some nutritious wild food along the way. While foraging is a more common trait seen in wild animals, it was also a survival skill that our hunter-gatherer ancestors had to master many centuries ago. From edible seaweed to chanterelle mushrooms, you can forage for a range of different species on your doorstep throughout the year.  

What to look out for

  • brambles
  • chanterelles
  • wild garlic
  • nettles
  • elderflowers
  • dandelion leaves
  • dulse
  • sweet cicely
  • sea buckthorn
  • wild damsons
  • honeysuckle

Foraging is an exciting way to get up close to nature and wildlife in Kinlochmoidart. However, please be careful what you pick - some species are poisonous. The Scottish Wild Mushroom Code might come in handy on your adventures. 

If you're interested in finding out more about local foraging, why not sign up for a course with Wildwood Bushcraft? Or ask one of the Kinlochmoidart team to point you in the right direction, we might just let you know our secret spots!
