Bushcraft at Forest Hills and Tigh Mor
We have started to do Bushcraft & Survival walks at both Forest Hills
and Tigh Mor
. At Forest Hills we offer session for all ages on a Monday, Tigh Mor is just for the adults and older kids on a Thursday outside of school holidays (Arthur
will continue to offer kids bushcraft during the holidays at Tigh Mor) .
We were joined by a lovely couple at Forest Hills braving the rain (which died off thankfully) on Monday who seemed quite impressed at all the wild foods that are out already. Lots even on the roadside and along country lanes. I think they are looking forward to showing their nephew what they had learned as he is bushcraft mad apparently!
Thursday we were joined by five lovely eager to learn adults and young Brendan with his Batman figure for added enjoyment at Tigh Mor.
Will over ran a bit again, sorry, I can't stop his passion for this session whilst he is in full flow!
|Daisy, or the Day's Eye. Edible and good used as an astringent.|
|Pignut, not Daisy the dog (although she is a bit like a hairy piglet), but something to look out for as it is just starting to come out up here in the Trossachs. Dig down following the stem and at a 90 degree angle you will find a nut, edible and really scrummy. Nothing to bark at really so get grubbing for nuts!!|
