    Is Truffle hunting possible in Scotland?

    And of course, they aren't very fast runners either with those tiny legs :lmao: I'm actually looking to get into fungi so that I can combine them with fish once I get a start on at bushcraft. Maybe even apply for a cooking course at college and do it for a living, haha - Who knows, I still...

    Pretty decent looking for the price. Plus that opinel would go well with a red deer antler as a handle (I've been looking for a knife that would fit well and look right for a while now). Cheers

    Best beginner bushcraft knife/blade

    Title speaks for it self. Though, I'm specifically looking for something on the cheap side of things... as long as it does the job, I don't mind what it is. I'm mainly wanting it for everything - filleting fish, cutting fungi, sharpening things. Direct links to websites would be great. Cheers :o

    A little off topic from what you're asking, but this might be something you're interested in http://www.gallowaywildfoods.com/learn-to-forage/foraging-events-calendar/ I'm considering going to the one in Glasgow

    Events (Scotland)

    Oft, that picture looks amazing! I'll definitely check out those places and see what they're like. To start of I'll do what you said and just venture into my local woods in Renfrew. As I said in my reply to Polecatsteve, I'll probably start of with small things and takes pictures of my progress...

    Events (Scotland)

    Yeah, don't get me wrong, the videos have given me a wealth of knowledge and information so far - It's just so frustrating looking at it all and not actually acting on it. I'm thinking of doing exactly that at least for March at the latest though. I was thinking about working on a half lean...

    Is Truffle hunting possible in Scotland?

    Well, dissapointing that we don't have truffles here. I agree with what you're saying though. :) I've been doing a lot of looking into some things and I've become interested in fungi just in general (Of course along with the seafood stuff as you know)

    Is Truffle hunting possible in Scotland?

    Title speaks for itself really. I would ask for the whole of Britain, but I really doubt that I would travel beyond where I live (Scotland). I've been looking into doing this http://www.gallowaywildfoods.com/learn-to-forage/foraging-events-calendar/ which has been making me interested in Fungi...

    I agree :o I'll probably have a go in my local woods first. I'll probably have to find a spot that no one's been near though, I'd hate to run into people

    Events (Scotland)

    Other than the meetups that get organised here, and the various bushcraft/foraging courses and schools, what other sort of events are there worth attending? I've only just got into bushcraft/foraging so I haven't even given it a go yet. All the information on the internet is good, and this forum...

    Best Sea Foraging spots in Scotland

    Well there's really only one river where I live, but the thing is, I feel like plenty people fish there without a permit anyway. Also, I'm not sure what exactly there is to fish in that river. It's the river cart which is part of the Clyde, and I've heard that there isn't really anything decent...

    Best Sea Foraging spots in Scotland

    Hmm, this whole fishing business became a lot more complicated than I anticipated, haha. So, do you think I should get that permit I was told about or do I not really need it? I always see plenty people fishing at the river near my home during summer.

    Best Sea Foraging spots in Scotland

    Well when I first contacted the angling club I'm talking about, I asked if it was safe to catch crayfish. The told me that they were glad I asked first because it's absolutely illegal. Then I went on to ask about fishing laws in general and if it was safe to do it in my town (Renfrew). They said...
