Gary is a true expert forager and we are very excited about this event. He supplies scotlands top restaurants with wild mushrooms, herbs and a whole manner of wild food. We are very excited to have him once more as this will be Gary's third time with us doing an array of fun and exciting foraged food. Check out his company Wild Food Forager for more info on his work and events he does near Oban.

His work and expertise was featured on the Scotland episode of Nadiya's British Food Adventure on BBC 2. He cooked a currie from wild local ingredients to show the variety of ingredients that can be found here.

Scotland has a lot to offer at this time of year, especially wild mushrooms and herbs. Gary  will be foraging most of the ingredients for the event himself in order to showcase the season's bountiful larder. 


Gary constantly surprises with his delicate touch with flavour, and sophisticated knowledge of the ingredients around us. Join us for one of this three night run of dinners where we showcase the surprising diversity of wonderful ingredients available in Autumn in Scotland. 

Dinner starts at 8pm, and guests are welcome from 7:30pm onwards. The set menu costs £45, and an optional drinks pairing menu will be available for £35.
