We go over to Orphir and a walk across the sands of Waulkmill Bay and up through the RSPB’s Hobbister reserve on a section of the St Magnus Way. It’s a journey from sandflats and saltmarsh to moorland and sea cliffs for ethnobotanical researcher Anna Canning and Orkney wildlife guide Megan Taylor, as they look out for wild plants and discuss their traditional uses for sustenance and health with foragers from Scotland and Poland.

Anna has put together notes and recipes for the walk, together with a link to a route map, for you to download and take with you whenever you go.

First comes the film.

After the film, there’s an opportunity for live questions on foraging to Anna, Szymon and Lauren. You can watch from the link below, or if you’d like to send in a question, you can also go direct to it in the Science Festival’s YouTube channel
