About Taste the Past

Taste, discover & work the woods of Glen Finglas

This full day workshop is a very hands-on event where a structured timetable will allow you to rotate throughout the day, allowing you to get a flavour of everything.

Date/time: Saturday 31st August from 10am till 4pm (including historical fired-cooked meal)

Meeting place: Glen Finglas, Brig o' Turk, Callander, FK17 8HR - Free parking at Little Druim wood & Lendrick Hill car park along A821

Further information will be detailed in your booking confirmation

Price: £15/pers.

Expect: Book yourself onto one of the workshop slots and you'll rotate throughout the day to get a holistic experience of what it must have been like living around the woods of Glen Finglas in the 17th & 18th Century. Imagine what the hills must have looked like, how they've been altered and changed and how the Woodland Trust is taking this forward. There are three workshops to participate in, each having a slightly different focus (food & cooking, human habitation & woodwork). You'll be treated on a historical fire-cooked meal, worthwhile to sit down for whilst absorbing the stunning scenery surrounding us.

Workshop Taste: Cooking
An outdoor cooking experience where you're involved in preparing food over an open fire with venison, trout and many period relevant ingredients. You'll learn how people in the past would have made and prepared their food as well as how it would have been tasted. Please provide us with any dietary requirements upon booking (details provided in your booking confirmation email).

Workshop Discover: Archaeological walk
You'll be showing the forgotten and hidden places of human settlements on the lower slopes of Glen Finglas by the Estate Ranger. This walk will be mainly off the beaten track and cover uneven and steep ground so a good level of fitness is required (not suitable for prams, etc).

Workshop Work: Woodwork
Talk and hands-on woodworking around the ancient woodlands and how they have changed over time. You'll be looking into how people have managed the trees with some hands-on experience.

Learn: You will learn about the history of ancient woodland and its changes and uses throughout different periods talking and discussing woodland management, and engage in some hands on woodwork using historic and prehistoric tools to help you understand the work of the people of the past, and maybe take something home at the end.

You will also learn about how people cooked in the past, what flavours where native to Scotland and how people would have used what was available around them, all using an open fire, under the tutelage of a member of Staff from The Scottish Crannog Centre.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Taste the Past are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
