Foreshore Foraging at Portencross

Event Details

These coastal foraging walks will show you the wonders growing in the machair; Scotland’s fantastically diverse foreshores.

We will explore many of the edible coastal plants, from halophytes to succulents. Historically, humans have flooded to the seaside in tough times, largely thanks to the `bounteous harvests which can be found there. We will be following in their footsteps and learning how to safely identify the treasure trove of delightful edibles found by the sea.

Walks will take roughly three hours. We will be tasting as we go, but no substantial food will be provided. Please bring your own snacks and water.

Please wear sturdy, waterproof footwear and outdoor clothing. Coastal locations are very exposed; please check the weather beforehand and dress accordingly.

Portencross is only 1 hour away from Glasgow on the beautiful North Ayrshire Coast

Foraging Courses Leader at Coeur Sauvage

Sam is the natural bard of the company. He joined in 2021. Sam was a bartender and competitive mixologist in Scotland’s exciting gastronomical and cocktail world; the Coronavirus pandemic allowed him to assess hospitality’s impact on his health and well-being. He had taken great solace in the quiet of the forests in contrast to the chaos of the bar and found inspiration in the new flavours he was discovering and so, when the opportunity to join forces with Coeur Sauvage, Sam jumped at the chance. 

Sam is a determined fungiphage, and well on his way to having identify and eaten 100 species of fungi. The child of two educators and with previous experience running whisky and gin tasting sessions, Sam is more than ready to share his experiences in the field of foraging.
