James Wong and Scottish Mushrooms

James Wong discovers the rather unusual properties of Scarlatina Bolete with mushroom hunters Dick Peebles and Gary Goldie.The forests, fields and woodlands of Scotland offer some of the richest habitats for fungi in the world. Thanks to the North Atlantic Drift, the West coast is warmer and wetter than the East and the native, well established woodlands are perfect for anything from ‘penny buns’ (otherwise known as porcini or ceps) to chanterelles.
