Rewilding is about large scale ecological restoration of the natural landscape by allowing nature to do its own thing. Rewilding is a source of hope and joy that one day everyone living or visiting Scotland will be able to experience the magic of our native natural ecosystem as it should be. The good news is that there are organisations with very dedicated people working to help return big swathes of land to diverse forest full of wildlife like red squirrels and wildcats. At Skirr we value sustainability from every angle of our product creation, from ingredients to packaging and shipping. But for us it goes deeper than that and we consider the health of the soil where our ingredients grow and the kind of world we want to live and work in. Nature is fundamental to our understanding of sustainability and we are supporters of rewilding Scotland.
'extreme sea kayaking, wonderful wild camps, amazing mountain biking’
So I started thinking back over the (almost) 20 years I have lived in Argyll and all the adventures I have had, trying to pick out the best and most wonderful experiences to share with you. It took me back to extreme sea kayaking, wonderful wild camps, amazing mountain biking and edge of the world mountain ridges. It makes me feel the wind in my hair, the sun on my skin, the exhilaration of reaching the top, the sheer joy of seeing wildlife and the peacefulness of feeling at one with nature and the sheer delight of a fire in a remote island spot.
