Sunday Mail: Foraging for wild food in Scotland

Written by Fiona May 05 2014

If you follow me on Facebook and Twitter you’ll know that I recently spent a day in Galloway in Southern Scotland finding out about wild food foraging. This is something I’ve been keen to do for a while and the trip proved to be an amazing outing.


The adventure was led by the UK’s only full-time foraging tutor Mark Williams, of Galloway Wild Foods, who is a walking encyclopedia of wild food information.

My lovely friend and blogger Ellen Arnison came with me and we were joined by my old school pal and photographer Mike Bolam. I had no idea there were so many wild foods to be picked and eaten in Scotland, and so many that look like ordinary weeds.
