Foraging retreat

Ivy Cottage is hosting a foraging retreat in September with with the wonderful Tamara Colchester. 

Are you ready for an encounter with one of the wildest landscapes in the UK?

Hills that hum with story, rivers that run with the music of the past - Rum is an island whose ground knows deep time. During this retreat we will  be exploring the natural habitats of Rum to see what they have to offer us and witness the red deer rut, one of the most exciting animal mating displays in the world. We will trace the bones of Rum’s lost civilisation and learn how people fed and housed themselves with the materials offered to them by the island itself. 

Accommodation will be in our beautiful rooms, Bramble Bothy and also at Rum Bunkhouse and cabins.

We will be eating delicious vegetarian and plant based food, wild swimming and feeling relaxed.
