Blackness Castle

Join us for a walk around the historic coastline of Blackness Castle with herbalist and forager Anna Canning (Floramedica). Seek out interesting plants and discover the stories they can tell us about the place and the people who have lived, worked and played there in different eras.

To bring the stories alive, there will be wild food and drink tasters, and you’ll learn how to make a traditional herbal remedy to take home.
