Other Biosphere Guides are: Elizabeth Tindal (Freelance Ranger) & Sarah Redman (Swim the Lochs)

We will be mostly writing outside, in a variety of extraordinary locations along the stunning Dumfries and Galloway coast. Our week will include: a slow swim down the River Cree with Swim the Lochs (this is a 1.3 mile adventure, suitable for any swimmers as it goes at a very slow pace and includes patches of walking where the river is too shallow – tow-floats are compulsory & will be provided); a mudlarking beach experience where The Freelance Ranger will teach you how to walk on estuary mud before tucking you into a beachside hammock beneath the trees (we challenge you to stay awake); and an amazing foraging and outdoor cooking event with Christy Miles from Way of the Wild ( We will scour the seashore and learn about seaweed, which beach plants and vegetables to eat, and how you can incorporate the natural world in your writing.
